WASHINGTON - The United States has
invited Russia to use its own radars and other sensors to size
up one or more US missile-defense flight tests as part of a
new push to persuade Moscow that the system poses it no threat,
a Pentagon official said on Tuesday.
The idea is to let Russia measure for itself the
performance of US interceptor missiles being deployed in and
around Europe in what Washington says is a layered shield
against missiles that could be fired by countries like Iran.
