The South Korean Defense Ministry opposed joining the US missile defense system, because it is designed for too long a range, reports South Korean television channel KBS on Friday.

US missile defense system did not fit South Korea


The US missile defense system is very different from the South Korean in its parameters, Seoul representatives told reporters, Interfax reports.

In the Ministry of Defense of the Republic explained that the goal of South Korea - the rapid detection of missiles at a distance from 500 to thousands of kilometers. The American missile defense system is designed to work at much greater distances, and therefore does not fit Seoul.
As the newspaper VIEW, reported, 25 of October, the head of the Pentagon Leon Panetta, said that the objects of the global missile defense system will be deployed in Asia, including South Korea.

17 September Panetta said the United States and Japan had agreed to deploy a second American radar station in Japanese territory to protect against possible missile attacks from North Korea.

This has already been condemned in Moscow. “We urge our American partners to measure their efforts in the field of missile defense with real challenges and threats, to act in such a way as not to damage the security interests of other members of the international community,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

United States Ambassador Michael McFaul, in turn, said that these missile defense systems do not threaten Russia's strategic potential.

    Along the way, the Koreans do not like the idea that in the event of a mess, not only the northerners will strike at them, but also the Chinese with the Russians.

      This only proves that their missile defense is directed against Russia and China, otherwise why would a long-range radar be found, North Korea is next to South.

      Do you seriously believe that in the USA ordinary Americans from the government decide something? There, for years, 40 and even 50 corporatocracy, the United States and 99% of Western countries from above have been ruled by the families of the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Baruchov, Warburgs and others, in their hands both the ill-fated Fed and all the other largest banks in the world. If they decide that the 3 world war is needed, it will be and no one can stop it. By the way, if you make an excursion into history, then these families rose back to the time of the East India Companies and for the next centuries earned money on wars, they made money on Napoleon, on 1 and 2 world and I assure you that they will arrange 3 as soon as possible to bring their goals to create a world government.

        Dinver,

        This is understandable, the Masons are at the helm, the oldest influential dynasties, just do not forget, in all the wars you listed, there was no such thing as "nuclear deterrence" ... You can finish badly for a minute !!! And what is the money for then? Living in comfortable holes, is it worth it?

          Who knows what they will decide there, the plan to reduce the population has not been canceled, and more and more they are even declaring this to the UN. And about radiation, so for the most part this is a myth, there are very few dirty weapons, and new practical developments do not leave behind pollution in the form of radiation, and the increased background passes through about 30-50 years.

            Yes? That is, the natural properties of plutonium have changed? or began to synthesize it? Half-life decreased to 15-25 years ??? And do not throw a link, where can I read about it? The truth is very interesting, I will be very grateful!

    McFaul and his administration have already gotten it. It is strange to hear that systems along your borders do not threaten Russia's security, and the strengthening of the Black Sea Fleet threatens US national interests. Someone from the State Department blundered like that. The very existence of the United States is a threat to the security of the whole world. Korea will not save Korea in the case of warriors.

        It’s time to conduct VM exercises together with China and North Korea off the coast of South Korea and Japan! Including involving strategic aviation and nuclear submarines! It would be great if such an element of overcoming missile defense as its complete preventive destruction was practiced.

            Pimply,

            Hello Zhen! Well, with China, yes, it would be more careful, but there’s a point here, it’s possible not to conduct joint activities at all, but the main thing is to sober up some people.

              Zhek, what kind of sobering up are you waiting for? Sobering up requires either allied relations or a multiple increase in the military budget - this is what the USSR broke down under. A multilayer buffer from the allied countries is needed. But this will not happen. We must adequately perceive the situation. The American missile defense system will continue to grow, it does not bear a special - real - threat, invasion from the side of the Amers is such an unlikely thing. What is really likely is an invasion from China with an attempt to tear away part of the Russian territories.

                Pimply,

                Zhen, well, they have been opening the hawalnik to the Far East and Siberia for a long time, yes. And I cannot but agree about a multilayer union. Here I am talking about what a sobering up ... As they say: "If you look like food, you will definitely be eaten." It is clear that all this is difficult, but a reasonable increase in the presence in the region, with appropriate exercises, a demonstration of firepower and potential and the indisputable maintenance of it (without fanaticism, as with the group in Germany at one time!), Inevitably makes the enemy think about the possible damage for "yourself beloved" and analyze the expediency of your actions. This is a nuclear-free version of a possible escalation ... But in general, as I understand it, in the near foreseeable future, the war between China and Russia is an adventure bordering on suicide ... As well as with the United States.

                  The USA has created a buffer from European countries. Where do they think? And the countries of Europe, in such marching layouts, will think mainly about how to cram more of these missile defense elements at home.

                    I'm not talking about the United States, I'm talking about China itself. The United States is generally a separate topic. Moreover, from the side of the Pacific Theater they have no buffer from countries. So they climb into Korea and Japan. In that "steppe" there is only HARP, it also covers from a blow across the North Pole. Well, in theory anyway ...

                      China - there are a lot of topics on training soldiers, logistics, etc. arises.

                        Yes, there will be no habitable territory. Some areas - if someone decides to use nuclear weapons - maybe. Only this is a moral barrier, kraynyak, and the Chinese have their own toys of this class, do not forget about it.

                        I remember that very well! If such a conflict occurs, even without the use of nuclear weapons, the economy and infrastructure of China will suffer very serious damage. Despite all our lags, etc. we are not some kind of Syria. Let me disagree about "some areas". These will be the territories! Where is industry, major cities, etc. located? In the most favorable and comfortable parts of any country. It is on them that the main blow will be dealt ... as a consequence of their unsuitability for further habitation, both in Russia and in China. Who needs it?

    And here, on a campaign, Israel enters the scene, whose missile defense system just fits into the needs of the South Caucasus. Especially taking into account the proposed scheme for the purchase of 4 corvettes from South Korea and the mutual purchase of military products from Israel on 400 ...

    As long as Russia is limited only with words, NATO will not stop anything. For words are idle, just words. For every step of the amers in the deployment of missile defense, an adequate response from Russia is needed in the form of concrete cases that would nullify the attempts of the "Stars and Stripes." A good springboard for this is Kaliningrad and the Far East.

      Come on, let them build, invest. When everyone is lined up, they invest all the money, then they will hit on these radars and launch positions, commenting dryly "we warned" And then we look at what they will do. Of course, it's a pity for the radars, but because of these radars they will not fight on an equal footing with a 100% chance, if they do not rake in full, then a dozen teeth will be missing, moreover, in a thermo-nuclear war.

    In the course of America, in general, fear has lost its own conscience, so impudently lying to the world community .... Everyone has long understood that this is an element of the Asian missile defense system. In general, it seems to me that Russia will create (by the way, already created) a missile, where their missile defense will be useless.

    It seems to me that all this fuss with missile defense is nothing more than an attempt to divert part of our strike weapons from the United States, sending them to missile defense deployment areas.
