You'd try to shoot the missile down, and you'd launch a retaliatory strike. You'd have to. That's how the theory of MAD works. The enemy doesn't attack you because they are 100% certain you will hit back. If the enemy thinks there's the smallest possibility you are bluffing the whole thing falls down. The downside is that you must have decided in advance that if they do attack you, you will hit back. That's how you make sure they don't attack you.
