NATO Strategy for the Future: A Concept
ARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE FORT LEAVENWORTH KS
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of the study was to determine how present NATO strategy can be adapted to exploit the weak seam political-social fabric of the Warsaw Pact. The study offers a conceptual approach for a future NATO strategy which more clearly announces NATOs intent to use theater nuclear weapons in Eastern Bloc territory through which a Soviet attack against NATO is launched. By attacking the weak seam of the Warsaw Pact, this study argues that this conflict avoidance strategy would result in self-imposed constraints by Warsaw Pact nations and could result in a closer relationship between East European nations and the West.
