President-elect Joe Biden should continue building intermediate-range missiles | Real Clear Defense

Both China and Russia are a threat to the United States with their ground-based ballistic and cruise missiles. Despite the US and their allies having ballistic missile defenses, these systems could be destroyed, overwhelmed, or avoided all together by modern missiles, such as Russia’s Iskander-M (SS-26). After President Donald Trump withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in August 2019, both Russia and China have been hesitant to join another deal. The Biden administration should continue to make intermediate-range missiles which could provide more standing in negotiations.
