A Path Forward for Missile Defense

As the 4th of July approaches, it is natural to reflect on those qualities that have preserved American independence for the past 230 years. Until the advent of intercontinental ballistic missile flight during the Cold War, the security of the U.S. homeland was largely preserved by the expanse of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the might of the U.S. Navy. The end of the Cold War should have brought with it a recession in the threat to the American public from ballistic missiles, but the events of the past weeks and months shows quite plainly that we must once again defend ourselves against this challenge to our security and prosperity.
