Stopping an incoming ICMB is one of the most complicated feats known. Yet it is one that must be figured out in order to guaranty the safety of the free world. This video goes into really interesting detail about what we have right now to stop ICMBs and how effective those countermeasures are. I still think a new ‘Star Wars’ Missile defense program would be the best option overall.
When I was growing up in England in the 1970’s and though the 1980’s in particular, there was an almost palpable fear that a nuclear exchange could break out between the superpowers at almost any time.

It caused me and many others around at the time to wonder was there a way to stop a missile attack but to be honest there was very little you could do. If you lived in a big city or near a military base, there was nothing to stop an ICBM or Intercontinental Ballistic missile once it was on its way and with the 4 minute warning we would have in the UK, you might as well have one last game of missile command and hope for a quick end.
Roll on 35+ years and although we now live in a time of where the threat from nuclear attack is much less, it’s still present, even if it may have moved to a different area of the globe.
So, with the advancement of technology, can we stop a missile attack now, once it’s been launched
