Abstract:

This memorandum considers chemical warfare which, the author contends, has largely been ignored in the strategic debate. He suggests that the possibility of chemical warfare bears directly on NATOs nuclear dependence and the escalation control associated with that dependence. Because chemical warfare could seriously challenge the US basic strategy of flexible response, the author asserts that it is time to face this vital issue.
