    Well, firstly, unless the Russian military is planning to establish a demilitarized area within Russia's western borders, any Russian missile deployment would inherently threaten NATO. Russia's heavily fortified Western Military District borders 5 NATO members and also protects Saint Petersburg, Moscow and most of Russia's large cities.

    Secondly, Russia's nuclear saber-rattling is very concerning, although I believe that it is an attempt to mask conventional weakness. No nuclear war planners were ever able to create a restricted or limited nuclear war scenario either during or after the Cold War. If Russia's Iskanders in Kaliningrad launched nuclear R-500s at NATO bases in Germany and Poland, the Kremlin would have roughly 10 minutes to gloat over their cunning before Trident IIs arced in from the Barents Sea.

    Thirdly, Russia is serious concerned about American BMD developments, especially given the American withdrawal from the ABM Treaty. The Kremlin is well aware that its delivery systems are less reliable than American ones and that the US has a range of ABM systems that Russia does not have. According to CSIS, Russian wargamers concluded that if Russia launched an all-out first strike on the US, the US would retain a second strike capability of some ~200 warheads. If the US did the same to Russia, Russia would be left with ~120 warheads; suddenly, the US' less-than-strategic BMD systems become very important as they whittle down this number below 100, and malfunctions reduce it even further. Russia has made a poor case of its concerns, and Obama has not substantially changed NATO BMD policy in Russia's view.

    The rationale of NATO BMD is questionable. Iran has no motivation and very little capability to target Europe, especially when its adversaries are Israel and the GCC, which can be targeted with SRBMs and cruise missiles. Moreover, all of Western Europe already lives in the shadow of Russia's nuclear arsenal and yet there are no plans to develop countermeasures along SDI lines.

    Certainly, the US should be on guard for DPRK nuclear blackmail and PLA's growing inventory of ballistic missiles, but this would either require new multilateral agreements (as per my previous post) or withdrawal from the INF Treaty as well...
