Russia Threatens Preemptive Strike Against U.S. Missile Offense Bases


1. The United States has lost the moral authority and destroyed the legal authority to oppose threats of preemptive strikes

2. Unlike U.S. threats of preemptive strikes against Iraq or Libya or Iran, this is a threat to preempt something that does actually pose a danger to Russia

3. So-called missile defense does not work as and is not intended as defense, but as part of a first-strike assault

4. Antagonizing Russia (part of why the G8 has fled to Camp David) serves NATO's interest in finding a reason to exist, and serves the financial interests of weapons makers, but does not serve the interests of the United States or humanity

5. When the U.S. threatened Russia over missiles in Cuba, Russia took them out.  Now the tables are turned.  We're putting missiles on Russia's borders.  Russia is asking us to take them out. --DS

MOSCOW (AP) - Russia's top military officer has threatened to carry out a pre-emptive strike on U.S.-led NATO missile defense facilities in Eastern Europe if Washington goes ahead with its controversial plan to build a missile shield.

President Dmitry Medvedev said last year that Russia will retaliate militarily if it does not reach an agreement with the United States and NATO on the missile defense system.

Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov went even further Thursday. "A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens," he said at an international conference attended by senior U.S. and NATO officials.

Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov also warned on Thursday that talks between Moscow and Washington on the topic are "close to a dead end."
