The Kavkaz-2012 military exercises, which will take place in southern Russia in September, will involve the live firing of Iskander ballistic missile. The Iskander is a tactical ballistic missile which can counter US/NATO anti-ballistic missiles placed in Europe designed to counter Russian ballistic missiles.
The Iskander was designed to replace the SCUD tactical missile.
Rightardia expects Mittens will bring the NATO missile system up when he debates Obama. We doubt if this issue will resonate with the public.
