Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The purported reason that the US is deploying these missile defense systems to Poland and the Czech Republic at this time was to deter Iran from attacking America's European allies with ballistic missiles in the event of an American-Iranian military conflict. It has been described in some reports as part of the build-up of US forces in the Persian Gulf region intended to intimidate Iran.

This is absolute bullshit. I think it was FarEasterner that reported recently seeing zome Czech minister claiming that the radars were intended to protect the Czech Republic from Hezbollah rockets...
