NATO and the American nuclear arsenal

In this article from 2013, Adam Lowther and Paul Schumacher discuss three basic and divisive questions which are central to the debate surrounding nuclear weapons. First, are nuclear weapons still required to deter potential NATO adversaries or can today’s advanced conventional force accomplish the same purpose? Second, do nuclear weapons stabilize or destabilize global security? Third, should the United States continue to fund this “Cold War relic” at a time when the American military and militaries across NATO are facing fiscal constraints?
