In 2006, three months after the Cuban Missile Crisis the United States secretly removed all its nuclear missiles from Turkey and Italy.
On September 17th, 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama announced that he will be offering a new missile defense system in Eastern Europe, discontinuing the system set up by President George W. Bush.
The Eastern Europe missile system “has caused an increase in tensions between NATO and the Russian Government,” a UK House of Commons Library paper noted. The system “would consist of missiles based on US warships based in the Mediterranean ”, the paper added.
Three years later, the system is augmented by land-based missiles based in Romania and Poland and a radar system based in Turkey.
Actually, US and NATO deploy missile ‘defense’ systems in Turkey and Eastern Europe.
