The article discusses the implications of the growing rate of nations that possess land-attack cruise missiles (LACMs).  The use of LACMs are considered less expensive than missile defenses and in combination with existing ballistic missile arsenals, it makes safeguarding against all types of missile threats a frustrating challenge.  Cruise missiles are considered the primary problem of proliferation of missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction.  Reasons of several countries for being interested in such offensive options are cited.
