Missile defense system. Russia role and rogue states threat.

If a missile defense system can be made really effective and incorporate Russia it would be horribly expensive, but perhaps justified 'long term'. I remember that even the ancient missiles used by Iraq were capable of reaching targets in Israel with fair accuracy. Let's not 'mince words' here. The 'rogue states' in question are the Islamic ones of the Middle East who regard the West as an enemy. For the next decade or so securing ourselves against any such threat is a justifiable priority.
