    This paper addresses what various types of joint missile defenses might look like. Once the threat has been agreed to, the critical question in addressing this controversy's political dimension is asking which nations should be involved. This project discusses the rewards afforded by a particular nation’s inclusion and the accompanying costs. I do not intend this project to be comprehensive. Rather this paper documents the political prerequisites for a joint missile defense. If a certain joint missile defense option does not make sense politically, then there is little reason to detail such a program's fiscal costs or technical feasibility. Likewise, if certain options are politically desirable, they should be subjected to the further possibility of policy rejection from economic and technological standpoints. The political dimension is the first test a joint defense must pass in order to be considered further.
