ABSTRACT
The article discusses impact of missile defense in Asia. Extending missile defense protection by the United States to friends and allies such as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and India has the potential to stress existing security dilemmas within the Asia- Pacific region. Thus, the transfer of Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) systems to Japan could magnify the threat posed by North Korea and secondarily China; a South Korean acquisition could increase the North Korean missile threat beyond that already posed by its conventional forces; capabilities transferred to Taiwan would antagonize Beijing; and commitments made to India could irritate Beijing and of course, Islamabad. The transfer of BMD capabilities to countries in Asia therefore embodies difficult dilemmas for the United States.
