$400 Million for Missile Shield

The United States will invest around $400 million in "missile shield" installations in Poland, said Gen. Henry Obering, director of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, during a visit to Redzikowo, a village in northern Poland Oct. 29. Redzikowo is where the United States plans to deploy 10 interceptor missile launchers as part of its national missile defense system under a Polish-U.S. agreement reached this past summer.

According to Obering, the missile defense base in Poland would become operational in late 2011 or early 2012. The base will not be large, he said, and around 500 troops will be stationed there. Obering added that the base would be safe for local residents and no one would be forced to relocate.

Polish deputy defense minister Stanisław Komorowski, who accompanied the American delegation, said the two countries were in the process of agreeing the final details of transferring a former military airfield in Redzikowo to the U.S. army. But first the two governments need to sign several detailed agreements on the matter by Nov. 19, Komorowski said.
