    En 2001, le Department of Defense (DoD) des Etats-Unis a décidé de développer un « système de systèmes », désigné sous le nom de Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS)1 destiné à protéger les États-Unis contre une attaque limitée de missiles balistiques provenant d’États incertains et la prolifération des armes de destruction massive. Nous explorerons une approche géostratégique et économique des nouvelles menaces et nous examinerons les réponses américaines qui sont fondées sur la réaffirmation de leur statut d’hyper puissance par la maîtrise technologique face à une absence de réponse européenne. 1 Le Système de Défense contre les Missiles Balistiques inclut la Défense Nationale Antimissile (NMD) pour protéger le territoire des États-Unis, et la Défense Antimissile de Théâtre (TMD) pour protéger les forces alliées ou amies déployées sur un théâtre d'opérations militaires. In 2001, the Department of Defense ( DoD) of the United States decided to develop a « system of systems », under the name of Ballistic Missile Defense System ( BMDS)1, intended to protect the United States against limited ballistic missile attacks coming from the rogue States and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.. We shall investigate a geo-strategic and economic approach of the new threats and we shall also examine the American answers which are based primarily on the reaffirmation of their status of hyper power by their technological supremacy and the absence of European answer. 1 Ballistic Missile Defense System includes National Missile Defense (NMD), to protect the United States homeland, and Theater Missile Defense (TMD), to protect deployed forces, allies, and friends elsewhere in a theatre of military operations.
