Rapidly deploy a ballistic missile defense system.

By blocking real missile defense, Clinton is undercutting global stability, including economic stability. [We must deter] an aggressor by showing that we can stop his missiles before they reach American homes and families. We can go a long way toward constructing a viable missile defense system for ourselves and our allies by integrating missile defense innovations with existing technologies on Aegis cruisers. What’s more, Clinton clings to the ABM Treaty, which [relies] on “assured vulnerability.”
