Summary/Abstract: Under NATO’s strategic concept, adopted at Lisbon, the system of territorial missile defense (TMD) was found to be an integral element of the Alliance’s defenses — which necessitates that the Allies provide concrete answers about the constituent parts of that system and the way it will operate. Once these questions are settled, we will know if the systems turns out to cement NATO or, perhaps, provoke disputes. The outcome will also have a bearing on whether or not the American MD systems, deployed in Poland, will play any major role in enhancing the security of the Alliance.
