ABSTRACT
The article calls for the U.S. to accelerate the development of ballistic missile defenses. North Korea's missile tests on July 4, 2006 and Hezbollah's Iranian-supplied rocket reign of terror against Israel underscore why the U.S. must quickly ramp up its missile defense efforts. Four years ago, President Bush withdrew the U.S. from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty because it severely hobbled our development efforts.
