A quick look at the new "cold war"

The only English-language news I can get here in Paris at the moment is BBC World, a source I instinctively find suspect. But they've been giving reasonably fair-play coverage to the war of words between the US and Russia, largely over the planned US deployment of a missile defense shield to eastern Europe.
"Moscow is not convinced by Washington's assurances that (missile defense) in Europe will not be directed against Russia," Neverov told ITAR-Tass.
Question: If the only way a European missile defense system can be directed against Russia is in reaction to Russian missiles launched against Europe, what's Russia worried about?

Commies, and crypto-commies, suck.
