End of the ABM Treaty

The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty has finally fallen into desuetude after its unilateral abrogation by the United States last December. Bush uses the opportunity to talk up his 'Shield of America' and the Russians decide to finally put Start II out of its misery in an understated mercy killing.

As we are closer to the missiles that any rogue state may lob at us than the United States, and as the Little Satan may prove just as much of a mouth-watering target, shouldn't HMG start setting up our own defences now that the ABM Treaty no longer binds our hands?
