Abstract : An examination of the degradation of a Russian retaliatory nuclear strike if the U.S. and Russia were to deploy theater or anti-ballistic missile defenses in their homelands. Consideration is given to efforts for restoring the effectiveness of a Russian retaliation, and the effects on first strike stability of deployments of theater missile defenses in one or both homelands.
