NATO operationalises missile shield in Europe

In spite of its own financial constraints and Russia's strong objection, NATO 'has begun to operationalise a missile shield in Europe. 'It is an issue which divides Russia on one hand and USA'-Europe on the other. Also, 'there is an observation that the missile shield has Iran in mind. A third school of thought 'reasons that 'NATO will eventually build and operate a full system of missile defence against both Russia and Iran. To what extent the economic conditions in America and the Eurozone would impact on the development of the system is a critical question. Will the determination ('and pace) to build and operate the full shield exacerbate the financial disorders in the Eurozone and'/'or 'adversely affect the still very fragile process of economic recovery in America ?
