The United States and Korea have practically agreed to deploy missile defense


“We are discussing this with the Koreans, we agreed to do this in principle,”
said Carter, in response to a question about the deployment of THAAD on the Korean Peninsula.

In early February, it was reported that Seoul and Washington had begun negotiations on the deployment of American missile defense systems on the peninsula - “high-altitude systems for the inter-atmospheric interception of medium-range missiles”. This step is being undertaken in response to the ongoing nuclear and missile tests in the DPRK.

Plans to roll out the system condemned Beijing. “We are seriously concerned about the possible deployment of the American THAAD system on the Korean Peninsula. The coverage area of ​​this system far exceeds the defensive need of the Korean Peninsula ... We will not allow damage to our national security interests. Our security interests must be guaranteed, ”said Hong Lei, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, in mid-February.

Moscow, in turn, criticized Pyongyang in this connection, whose short-sighted actions "play into the hands of those who rely on bloc politics and increasing military confrontation, causing serious damage to the security of the states of the region."

        Take a look at the map please, and you will see that the DPRK is near our Far East, there is even a common border section. And to the Republic of Kazakhstan it is not so far away and if Kim is a Member of the Games, the dad of a fighting hamster did his job silently and armed himself with the DPRK, but he didn’t wave a nuclear club and the mattresses didn’t go with his missile defense into this region, so the son waved a club, and the mattress needed it, right here with the missile defense, though there are mattress bases in the Republic of Kazakhstan, it turns out that we and heaped a big pile under the nose of the Chinese.

          so it turns out that UN and us and the Chinese have piled a big pile under his nose.

          Yes, you can’t argue with these arguments!
          Although a small "plus" is still present: striped, thereby, pushing China to strengthen the alliance with Russia (at least in the designated region).

          With Eun or without Eun, the mattresses would still put their missile defense in South Korea! And nuclear weapons have nothing to do with it!
          And South Korea did not agree on anything with the States, it simply complied with the Pentagon’s order! Negotiating with the States is not for the South Korean regime, for them the main thing is to clearly implement what Uncle Sam orders!

        Well? China has a worthy armed force; it will not rust behind them. yes
        As for, "almost agreed", this is not at all that "finished placing" ... No.
        And, in principle, "if grandmother had grandfather's external genitalia, she would be grandfather ..." (with)wink

              Yes, it’s missile defense rather than China than Russia. Although Russia is not good at that.

                These missile defense systems that they want to deploy in South Korea do not pose any threat to the Russian ICBMs at all.

      In this case, for China it is much more sensitive than for us.
      Interestingly, China has great influence in Central and South America, and if necessary, it can stick its responses there. "To cover the construction of the Nicaraguan Canal from the attacks of drug cartels"

    Or did someone already forget how missile defense systems were deployed in Europe without any additional good reason?

    YOU Europe by the way, if anyone forgot, the Americans also announced the deployment of their missile defense against threats from Iranian and North Korean missiles .. On this basis, we will also blame him for provoking the deployment of the EuroPro in Poland and Romania ..?

    Yes, there will be nothing. Beijing no longer has any serious leverage over North Korea.

    These missile defense systems that they want to deploy in South Korea do not pose any threat to the Russian ICBMs at all.

    And Chinese, in principle, too. They are not intended to intercept ICBMs at all. Exclusively for intercepting missiles with a maximum range of 3500 km, i.e. tactical and medium range. For Russia and China, interceptors do not pose a threat, and their range and altitude reach are about 200 km. But the radar ... Located at Seoul, it will cover a fairly large area, both in China and in our Primorye
