Long-Range Ballistic Missile Defense in Europe
Steven A. Hildreth (au); Carl Ek (au)
In early 2007, after several years of internal discussions and consultations with Poland and the Czech Republic, the Bush Admin. formally proposed deploying a ground-based midcourse defense (GMD) element in Europe of the larger Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) to defend against an Iranian missile threat. The system would have included 10 interceptors in Poland, a radar in the Czech Republic, and another radar deployed in a country closer to Iran, allto be completed by 2013 at a reported cost of at least $4 billion. The proposed European BMD capability raised a number of foreign policy challenges in Europe and with Russia. On Sept. 17, 2009, the Obama Admin. announced it would cancel the Bush-proposed European BMD program. Instead, Defense Sec. Gates announced U.S. plans to develop and deploy a regional BMD capability that can be deployed around the world on relatively short notice during crises or as the situation may demand.
