dc.descriptionChapter VI of the LAWS "White Paper on National Missile Defense" - "In the fall of 2000, the United States will decide whether or not to begin deployment of a national missile defense (NMD) system. This White Paper reviews the technological aspects of the U.S. NMD program as well as its political and strategic impact and concludes that the current system, if deployed, would result in a net decrease in U.S. security."en
dc.description.abstractIn Chapter VI, Steve Fetter and Jack Mendelsohn outline Alternatives to NMD. There exists an effective alternative to NMD for dealing with the potential ballistic missile threat: strengthening the interlocking and complementary barriers to proliferation created by deterrence, arms control (including transparency measures), economic incentives, cooperative programs, export controls, preemption and civil defense.en
