Abstract

This paper will examine the Strategic Defense Initiative, or “Star Wars” ballistic missile defense. It will examine the proposed multilayered system, its strengths and weaknesses, and conclude with a discussion of the impact SDI has had on strategic thought. It will try to answer the fundamental question of whether the proposed BMD (ballistic missile defense) will create a more secure and stable world for the United States and its allies, or one less so filled with “new hazards to the security of all.”
