Boonton Poemless,Well, being an average geiohaprgcally challenged American it took a little while for me to get a map out. MDS in Poland is not exactly coherent if you’re talking about Iran as the threat. Georgia, Turkey, Moldavia, and the Ukraine make more sense. A MDS in place in those countries might served to protect all of Europe from an attack, and not just the host country. The benefit to a country of a missile defense system goes beyond the actual defense, but includes economic benefits which accompany putting in a high tech base in your neighborhood.Now, seeing that one of the two parties cites as being stiffed by this move by Obama was the Ukraine and both of you pointedly note only Poland in your discussion leaves me suspicious. My criticism however, was that Mr Obama’s foreign policy doesn’t make sense (at least to me). He acts coldly to the UK, Israel, and other allies and makes weak overtures to those states which are hostile, which has been weak enough to be more likely to actually increase their hostility and aggressiveness. On the face of it this seems an overall strategy to enforce some sort of back-door isolationist policy.
