Abstract:

Most literature concerning the use of surface-to-surface missiles SSMs is focused on counter-proliferation. The authors are concerned with the emerging missile capabilities of rogue state missile arsenals. They fear that increasing ranges and accuracy will eventually threaten the US homeland. This concern is certainly warranted, but largely misses another potential consequence of enlarging SSM arsenals around the world the threat of derailing 21st century strategic air campaigns.
