Summery: Through the release of the Trump administration’s missile defense review, there has been a raise of concern. President Trump plans to raise spending on missile defense to the point where we will be able to detect them from any place around the world at any time. Congress views this as an unnecessary, since it is too costly to be realistic.
Significance, Congress is right, this plan will only create more expenses that will actually mitigate U.S. national security. In addition, this will exacerbate Chinese and Russian concerns toward U.S. missile proliferation. Instead of having this as show of force the President should pursue discussions of strategic stability involving the the impact of missile defense.
