Hard Power: Pentagon ‘Encircling the World’ With Missile Defense Systems

The US is continuing to spread its missile defense systems all over the world using dubious reasons as a pretext, former Director-General of the UN Office at Geneva Sergei Ordzhonikidze asserted.

“Until recently we were told that [Washington’s] anti-missile defense system in Europe was aimed at protecting [the US and its allies] from Iran’s missile program. Now China is told the same thing,” the diplomat said during a lecture at the Museum of Contemporary Russian History.

The remarks come at a time when Washington and Seoul have launched formal talks over the possible deployment of America’s advanced missile defense system, known as Terminal High Altitude Air Defense (THAAD), to South Korea in the light of Pyongyang’s recent rhetoric, threats, as well as nuclear and missile tests.
