So what? What does USA give the right to 'keep an eye' on Russia because of their fire power? How about USA's "state of the art" army, that seems to be allowed. Also, fine to know you're paying Russia to dismantle their nuclear weapons, then again USA does still have them. Also, another point where your tax goes, to this sort of stuff. It's a bit ignorant, to say the least, to put it in like Russia's backyard. It shows a lot of distrust and it certainly doesnt make Russia feel any safer. Besides that, it makes Europe also more vulnerable for attacks, whether it's aimed at the defense system or based on supporting USA. It's plain stupid. If USA government wants to feel like Rambo, well, I prefer not but ok. But also be ready for the consequences instead of hiding in someone else's basement. You seem to be unable to find anything, I cant be arsed anymore to put any effort in that tbh. You're kidding right? Georgie was the one who shot first FYI, this gives Russia all the right in the world to go in there. Whether Russia provoked or not, they shouldnt have fired a shot there.
