Abstract : U%R%LIIy uy u%ut% rIuF%,U%r% Concern over global proliferation of theater ballistic missiles has prompted calls for limited national and effective theater ballistic missile defense (TBMD) programs. However, the ABM Treaty, a cold war relic, is a major stumbling block to such programs because it prohibits the deployment of ABM defenses, and does not distinguish between prohibited ABM defenses and TBMD systems.
