Default Putin and "hypersonic missiles"

Vladimir Putin--in an apparent (and highly provocative) response to America's upcoming withdrawal from the INF Treaty (which Russia never observed, anyway)--is now threatening to target the US with "hypersonic missiles": https://www.foxnews.com/world/putin-...iles-to-europe

But President Trump and the Pentagon are not taking this bluster lying down.

America's response is to develop a space-based system that can shoot down these missiles, while deploying low-yield nuclear weapons on submarines.

Thoughts?

We should take Reagan's lead on this and employ the vast resources of the United States to develop weapons systems that the Russians would never be able to match. Peace through strength.

A note to Vladimir Puton, from Manitou--US Navy Sailors refer to those Russian hypersonic missiles as targets and nothing else.
