Smaller, roving missile defense necessary to protect against Iran's existential threat

MSNBC offers an interview with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by Anne Curry, six minutes, about the elections and the death of a protestor.

But on Sept. 17 the news media reported that President Obama will pull back from a Bush plan to station large missile batteries in Poland and the Czech Republic for roving smaller missiles, which Obama (and his administration) says will be cheaper and more numerous, and a better deterrent especially against Iran and perhaps North Korea. Reading between the lines, it seems as if the Obama administration want to keep the agility required to detect rogue elements that could conceivably launch small nuclear devices from sea, possibly with the aim of an EMP attack.
