We will work with our allies and partners to enhance the resilience of U.S. forward posture and facilities against potential attacks. Finally, we will strengthen our regional deterrence postures—for example, through phased, adaptive missile defense architectures.

Are these architectures comprised of missiles or are these antimissiles?​

    Anti-missile missiles actually:).

    Seriously ... missile defense = defence against missiles.

    "Architecture" really means "design" and thus cannot contain any missiles whatsoever.

    Either the wirter is being intentionally vague about something that doesn't exist or it's another exercise in bureaucratic obfuscation.

    If the things exist, it would be better to say missile-defense systems.
