From Mutually Assured Destruction to Mutually Assured Defense

The thought occurs to me that the most effective way to accomplish the goal of reducing the threat of missile attacks would be to sell our BMDS (Ballistic Missile Defense Strategy) technology to any country that wanted it, especially unfriendly nations who see missile defense as a threat to their security and a provocative act on the part of the US.

In a reversal of the MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) philosophy of the Cold War of the 60's I believe this would reduce the emphasis on building up nuclear arsenals and missiles on all sides. If the technology were effective enough it would make the possession of such weapons moot and an unnecessary expense for all nations.

Selling and installing this technology world wide might even be a source of revenue for the United States.
