Since the administration of George Bush the American people have been sold a bill of goods of the necessity of creating an anti-missile system run by the US military in order to prevent “rogue nations” from sending missiles into Europe. There is no evidence Iran, Russia or North Korea had any plans to send missiles into Europe or how they would send such weapons of destruction thousands of miles in the air. Barack Obama on assuming office cancelled the scheme and promised to work with Russia in an effort to eliminate any such threat. Czech Foreign Minister Jan Kohout introduced a sense of reality by urging the European Union to assume responsibility for constructing any missile defense.
If the issue is possible missile attacks on the European Union then it is only logical for that organization, not the United States to assume responsibility for dealing with the problem. Frankly, we doubt if an anti-missile system is needed.
