Is Romania going to get hit with a ballistic missile? The country Romania is located in Southeastern, Europe. Its boarders are the Black sea, Ukraine, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Hungary. Their President is Klaus Iohannis and their Prime Minister is Mihai Tudose. What is a ballistic missile? A ballistic missile is a missile that has a high, arching path and falls onto its target due to gravity. “The missile is only guided during the relatively brief initial powered phase of flight and its course is subsequently governed by the laws of orbital mechanics and ballistics.” There are more than one type of ballistic missile. Two types are intercontinental and anti-ballistic missile. Who is trying to hit Romania and why? Frank Rose had said Iran’s ballistic missile could hit Romania. “The United States switched on an $800 million missile shield in Romania on Thursday that it sees as vital to defend itself and Europe from…rogue states but the Kremlin says is aimed at blunting its own nuclear arsenal.” Since Romania seems to not like Russia and their things, this claims to be another reason why their getting hit. Russia has said previously Romania is a threat to them because of NATO. How does this missile affect Romania? Romania now has to start thinking about what will happen if they get hit. They will have to start fighting with weapons to protective themselves from any danger. “NATO is evolving and forming a stronger alliance with reorganized goals 5 years after it was predicted that it would collapse along with the demise of the Soviet Union.” NATO will have to get involved in this situation since NATO has to do with Europe and Romania is Europe. Since the purpose of NATO was to keep the Russians out then it goes well with Romania since they don’t like the Russians. The United States will defend NATO by working with their partners.What should Romania do about this situation? Before they get hit, they should fight back so that the other country will not hit the missile. Getting other countries to be on Romania’s side would be extremely helpful and supportive. They could really help fight if Romania gets to the point where they can’t fight anymore or if they need more weapons. If they were to get hit, Romania could either hit them back with missiles or they could go into war. Either way, wouldn’t they have to go into war eventually?
