The greatest strategic threat to the United States is an attack by one or more ballistic missiles armed with nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction. Today, the United States remains extremely vulnerable to this form of attack.

Missilethreat.com is dedicated to explaining this threat, and the urgent need for robust and layered missile defenses. Systems based on land, sea, air, and in space which are capable of intercepting a missile during any phase of its flight are necessary to provide for the common defense.

Missilthreat.com offers timely updates on the expansion of ballistic missile capabilities around the world as well as U.S., and other nation’s, efforts to construct defenses against these missiles.

The website began as a project of the Claremont Institute.  In 2012, the George C. Marshall Institute assumed responsibility for maintaining the site.
