Abstract:

The study examines whether the United States should continue to follow a course of gradual force reduction in Western Europe for political and economic reasons. Examined are the possible reactions of other NATO nations to US demands for increased financial and physical support of US forces in Western Europe. Examples are cited of decreased tension between the east and west when normalization of diplomatic and trade relations are likely to surface in relation to intensified efforts by the United States in pursuing detente, controlled disarmament, mutual force reduction and maintenance of peaceful conditions in Europe.
