CMR 541 - Missile Defense and its Role in Conflict ResolutionCredits: (3)
This course examines the role of Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) in securing nations against war. Ballistic missiles (and cruise missiles, a lesser included case) are a highly effective, ultra high speed means of combat forces of virtually any size to carry out combat against surface-based targets, capable of raining nuclear warheads down on any unstoppable in their destructive power, providing any entity that possesses them with the power to terrorize, dominate, annihilate or simply deter their adversaries. In recent decades, however, the capability to destroy these weapons in flight has been underway, and already had many milestones, with several victories in combat, and widened or worsended conflicts averted, to date.
