Argument: European missile defense gives EU veto in US security
- Debate: European missile defense - con argument.
Taylor Dinerman. "European missile defense: why bother?". 26 Mar. 2007 - "such weapons will give our allies a veto over whether or not an ICBM aimed at a US city will or will not hit its target. Once the system is operational, a British or Polish politician would have, at best, a few seconds to make up his or her mind to allow a GMD interceptor to launch. In the future a European leader might be in a position to decide whether a nuclear weapon would or would not explode over New York or Washington."
