This paper provides a summary of non- proliferation policies along with discussion of current world realities leading to the conclusion that the existing non-prolif eration regime is losing its potency.

The options include the impact of continuing with current policies an aggressive military-oriented forced compliance policy and third, an approach that envisions nation building and developing economic power as a counter to seeking regional influence through mass destruction weapons.
