    If america refuses this offer, then we definently know the missle shield is not made for Iran. America has something up their sleeve. The U.S. already pulled out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2001 and now this. The U.S.'s idea protecting a country from non existent missles make no sense.

    Yah, the potential to intercept the missles from turkey would be far greater and more efficient and it wouldn't be close to Russia. That's the whole point.

    The U.S.' refusal to consider the joint
    use of a radar station in Azerbaijan as an alternative to the deployment
    of missile defense elements in East Europe shows that the systems to be
    deployed in the Czech Republic and Poland may be targeted at Russia,
    political analyst Vyacheslav Nikonov has said.
    The U.S. is now building a global missile defense system with a lot
    of elements in various regions of the world, Nikonov said. "All this is
    linked with offensive systems through satellites. Can this all be
    targeted at North Korea and Iran, which do not possess long-range
    missiles? Of course not," Nikonov told Interfax on Friday. The Americans just don't want to lose face. If they accept our
    proposal now, then they will have to admit that Russia has found a more
    efficient way to counter the threats against which they say the missile
    defense system in Europe is being established," Nikonov said.
