Missile Defense System

Missile Defense System in Europe a Necessity?
The U.S. has been working on a deal to place missile defense systems in Poland with a radar installation in the Czech Republic. The main purpose of this missile defense system is to protect the U.S. and its allies in Europe from nuclear missile attacks from a growing field of nations with nuclear weapons capabilities. Among the greatest threats at the moment are North Korea and Iran, who is aggressively working to obtain their own nuclear weapon. Russia has been opposed to a missile defense system in Europe, and they do not like the U.S. working with Poland and the Czech Republic to place installations in Poland. Russia has threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Poland if they choose to install the missile defense systems within the country.

The question about Iran possessing nuclear weapons isn't a matter of "if," but rather "when" they do obtain them, how much of a threat will they be to the world. Every indication is that when they have a nuclear device, they intent on using it to hold the world at bay. Indications are that they are also very determined to use a nuclear weapon against Israel, whom they want to see destroyed. These blatant threats against other nations such as Israel and also the United States make it a priority to do everything necessary to get missile defense systems in place before Iran gets their bomb. Failure to protect U.S. interests and its allies in Europe will lead to a world where constant intimidation and bullying come from the Iranian government. Get the complete details about the missile defense system being proposed in Poland and the Czech Republic in the article, International Missile Defense: Washington and Warsaw's Positive Step Toward Final Agreement HERE. The threats are real, and the danger is absolute. Missile defense systems need to be placed throughout Europe and the world to protect against rogue nuclear missile attacks.
