Missile shield raises new nuclear arms race fears

Iran hits back at US plans to hold a missile shield on Romanian soil, stoking fears of a new nuclear arms race. Report by Michael Bird

March 2010 - From the Print Edition

Iran fears that the installation of a US missile defence system in Romania could contribute to creating a new nuclear arms race in the region.
According to the USA, Iran is creating a medium-range ballistic missile, the Shahab 3, with a 2,000 km range capable of attacking NATO allies Greece, Romania and Bulgaria.
Development of these weapons could be ready by 2015, according to US intelligence, while the west and Israel remain concerned that Iran has plans to produce nuclear material ...

Romania already proved its sub servience to Us by running US torture prisons against EU lawsthis trouble maker along with Poland should be castigated for fear mongering and inflaming tensions.one would have thought these two countries would have learnt from war not promote it for their own inflated egos.and stupidity.there is nothing to be admired in being a US doormat.Us has admitted lying abouyt Irans nuclear program for years .Israel has rampped up the lies to bury the fact they were to blane for 9/11 nato just admitted Taliban had nothing to do with 9/11 so why are they still killing them /insread of exit stratergy.EU is becoming a racist killing machine and EU citizens are no better allowing their armies to be involved.this blantant disregard for human life is appalling.the plastic unquestioning arrogance of europeans.is to be despised. US let OB Laden escape2001 to continue war on terror this was proven recently.AL qeada top 3 are AMERICANS and could be anywhere.

Romania has nothing against Iran, this missile shield is aimed against Russia i can assure you of that; for much of the last 200years Russia was our enemy and IS our enemy.
Muslims are pretty much welcome in Romania as long as they follow the laws...which they do; Proof: Turkey has a priviledged partnership with Romania in many sectors of economy and turks love it here.
While i agree Romania does alot of things to prove itself to "the master" historically we always did that, we always sided with the strongest and betrayed them eventually, so don't worry, romanians do this to follow their own interest...which is: keep Russia at bay and have a leverage over it at the same time(it's very easy to switch from medium range interceptors to ICBM missiles and threaten "the bear")+ maybe provide safety against Iran in a possible future scenario(highly unlikely).
Romania also has interests in reuniting with Moldova...again something Russia won't be thrilled on.
good day.

I guess also for Russians is very easy to send some “gifts” to destroy these antiballistic missile systems. If they cannot by conventional warheads, they will do by nuke. Ana America will do nothing!
