    MSNBC: Missiles on my apartment? London resident balks at Olympics security measures

    I don't think I'd be happy if they did this to my flat!! Not sure if this is normal for Olympics or not...

    Installing Patriot Missile Defence seems a bit over the bearing for me..

    I doubt they are going to put a Patriot battery on a rooftop. The article talks about High Velocity Missile (HVM), so probably this system:

    That said, the Greek apparently deployed Patriots during the Athens Olympics (but I doubt they were on top of apartment buildings)

    I just hope the SF Bay Area never ends up hosting one of these events.
