Chinese and Mutually Assured Destruction: The British Experience Michael Quinlan Small Nuclear Powers Mark T. Taking Proliferation Seriously Henry D. The United States has rejected the notion that threatening population centers with nuclear attacks is a legitimate way to assure deterrence.
American opposition to MAD also is reflected in the Bush administration's desire to develop smaller, more accurate nuclear weapons that would reduce the number of innocent civilians killed in a nuclear strike.
Still, MAD is influential in a number of ways.
First, other countries, like China, have not abandoned the idea that holding their adversaries' cities at risk is necessary to assure their own strategic security. At a minimum, acquiring nuclear weapons is still viewed as being sensible to face off a hostile neighbor that might strike one's own cities.
Thus, our diplomats have been warning China that Japan would be under tremendous pressure to go nuclear if North Korea persisted in acquiring a few crude weapons of its own. Similarly, Israeli officials have long argued, without criticism, that they would not be second in acquiring nuclear weapons in the Middle East.
Regarding these countries' nuclear arsenals, U. This is understood to mean only targeting each others' major cities. Implicit to all this talk is the assumption that a nation's security is, in fact, enhanced by acquiring a relatively modest but secure nuclear arsenal i.
Certainly, the underlying premise of MAD thinkingthat small v nuclear states can deter aggression by large nuclear statesis still popular. Iraq, we are told, might have held America off in or had it actually possessed nuclear arms.
Similarly, the contrast between U.
Why should we care about such MAD-inspired notions? If, as MAD thinking contends, nations can deter aggression by having the ability to successfully launch a nuclear attack against a significant number of innocent civilians, acquiring a nuclear arsenal will increasingly be seen as the best way for states to protect themselves.
Aggravating this inclination is the relaxation of Cold War alliance constraints. Without the threat of global nuclear war and the guarantees of security from blocs of large powerful nations, traditional security alliances are weaker.
As a result, the desire of nations to go their own way has increased. MAD thinking has only egged them on. As more and more nations become nuclear-ready or armed, our own leaders, finally, will want to downplay such developments insisting that a kind of mutually deterred peace among such nations is actually plausible.
The link between MAD-inspired thinking and nuclear proliferation, though, does not stop here. Because nuclear weapons can deter aggression, nations have a right to them.
It follows that nations should be compensated for not exercising this right by giving them the freest possible access to nuclear technology under occasional nuclear inspectionsi.Lebanon is a parliamentary republic based on the National Pact, with a Maronite Christian president, Shia speaker of the Chamber of Deputies (parliament), and a Sunni prime minister.
