What's even more humorous is the seriousness of the interviewer's subsequent reaction to being laughed at.
It seems that he actually believed the notion that NATO built its missile defense shield to protect from Iran, a country which, according to U.S. intelligence reports, has yet to develop not only the nuclear technology, but the inter-continental ballistic missile systems capable of delivering such technology all the way from Iran.
The propaganda on both sides is actually pretty funny considering how ridiculous the back and forth posturing has gotten, especially in recent months.
What won't be funny is when Europe, Russia, China and the United States eventually use it to facilitate entry into a global conflict involving billions of people.
