Missile Defense

 Three decades ago, there were nine countries that fielded ballistic missiles. Today, there are 32. Many of them are unfriendly or unstable—or both.


The good news is that an international missile defense coalition has emerged to answer the looming missile threat, as dozens of allied nations are joining with the United States to build a missile shield.


This global acceptance of missile defense is nothing short of remarkable.


After all, not long ago, missile defenses were considered too internationally destabilizing, too politically divisive, too financially expensive to deploy.


But today, Reagan’s vision of a shield against madmen, mistakes or miscalculation is shared by leaders on four continents.


In short, technology has finally caught up with Reagan—and so has the rest of the world.
