Description

According to the Missile Defense Agency, "there has been an increase of over 1,200 additional ballistic missiles over the last 5 years. The total of ballistic missiles outside the United States, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Russia and China has risen over 5,900. Hundreds of launchers and missiles are currently within the range of our deployed forces today." Russia and China are both engaged in aggressive modernization programs pointing hundreds of missiles of all sizes and ranges at the U.S., its allies, and our deployed forces. From the outset, the Obama administration substantially reduced the funding for missile defense and particularly for those capabilities that were to provide for the protection of the American territory and population centers. While U.S. strategic defenses have been reduced in numbers, and capabilities for the future have been abandoned, the threat to the U.S. homeland has grown, not just from North Korea and Iran, but from Putin's Russia, which has embarked on a strategic build-up of offensive and missile defense capabilities reminiscent of the Soviet days.show more
