I'd say to build it, as it benefits every party involved. I do think we should extend it to Russia, though, they're cold enough without our shoulder.Besides, everyone benefits from being able to see missiles. Why not extend our aegis across all the world that would benefit from it? How much more will it cost to improve ties with Russia?

Irans missiles would come either easterly or westerly. So the ideal placing of a missile defense platfrom would be Turkey or Pakistan IMO. Not against Russia, in Polnad as it looks like right now.

Actually I'm fairly certain any missiles from Iran and the general would fly North, across the North Pole. Not to mention a system in Poland does NOT guard against Russia, unless you are talking about guarding Europe from Russia. All Russian missiles would head North over the pole.

Forget to mention......Irani missiles will never in the next decade or so advance enough to reach US Soil.

Didn't Russia release a statement that they had 'new technology' in regards to missile defense? It was basically a veiled threat saying that the missile system was useless if they ever decide to use it against Russia. This after Bush accused ahmadinejad (or however it's spelt) of being the future instigator of WW3...

Yes they said exactly that. But, considering with the other things they said, I'd guess it's merely plain nervousness and being afraid of loosing power.

US lawmakers refuse funds for Europe missile shield - New Zealand's source for World News on Stuff.co.nz

"We don't even have the basic agreement between Poland and the United States," Murtha said in justifying Congress' refusal to fund the programme in the current fiscal year, which extends until next September 30.

Last week, President George W Bush stressed the need for installing the 10 missile interceptors in Poland and radar in Czech Republic at a total cost of about $US3.5 billion ($NZ4.62 billion).

Bush asked Congress to provide $US310 million this year.

I don't think Poland and the Czechs would be keen to pay for them themselves...

Don't know, Germany pays quite a bit for the American bases we have here.
