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.

The Russians would likely use the Iskander to conduct a preemptive strike on a NATO missile defense system that GW Bush wanted want to deploy in Europe. 

This is one of the reasons Romney went to Poland. 

Obama had cancelled the deployment of a missile defense system into Poland.

Rightardia expects Mittens will bring the NATO missile system up when he debates Obama. We doubt if this issue will resonate with the public.
