Perspective – US Non-Strategic Nuclear Weapons in Europe

share this

This paper addresses the presence of American non-strategic nuclear weapons (NSNWs) in the European theater. It explores the role and purpose of these arms in order to determine their effectiveness as both a deterrent and as tools of non-proliferation.

The political and military role of US NSNWs in Europe, as well as their safety and security conditions, are matters of discussion. Because of the precarious political landscape among NATO members and the practical risk of nuclear proliferation, the US should not withdraw all of its non-strategic arsenal from Europe, but could consider a sensible reduction.
