Abstract:

A nuclear strategic concept which completely rejects the use of Western European owned and controlled nuclear weapons as a supplement to U. S. military power is considered. Next, a kind of Force de Frappe supplement of nuclear weapons is discussed. Finally, a rather special type of a very powerful and, perhaps ultimate, nuclear strategic concept is offered as food for thought. While there has been some significant public discussion of the first two concepts, the last one has some characteristics that have not been sufficiently explored. Author
