Missing the Point

Headline : "Russia capable of hitting US missile shield: general"

This so absolutely misses the point of the missile shield it isn't even funny.

There is a reason missile counter-measures were originally banned in our earlier treaties with the USSR - they would be very expensive and could be easily overwhelmed by a massive attack. It would then stand to reason that the missile defense we're building is... wait for it... not designed to counter an arsenal like that of Russia or China!

When we say we're building and deploying missile defense against terrorists or rogue nations we mean it!
