Example text

Insofar as the Soviet Union remains a preeminent nuclear power, the threat that these weapons represent can be dealt with by American forces based elsewhere than in Europe. Such a diminution of a Soviet military threat to Europe will allow for the possibility of major reductions in American nuclear forces-at both the strategic and the lower levels-and a major reorientation of their missions. The size and character of American nuclear forces have been driven largely by the perceived need to extend the nuclear deterrent to cover major attacks against certain of our allies, and by the perceived need to attack large numbers of targets to make such a deterrent threat credible.

With all these opportunities for potential conflict abounding, the possibilities are legion that indigenous powers will attempt to enlist outsiders in their support. Furthermore, skeptics would argue that recent cases of effective resistance by Third World states to outside intervention may be due merely to local topography or the potentially reversible state of military technology and should not be made into universal generalizations. If indeed an environment of greater complexity, approaching multipolarityin the sense of a number of actors possessing political autonomy in decision making to roughly equal degrees (even if their political, economic, and military capabilities are not equal)-does lie in the offing, such an environment, while encouraging or constraining certain policies, will not determine policy choices.

The swift reemergence in Europe of international and interethnic conflicts buried since the 1930s provides ample illustration that it will not be so. The spread of advanced forms of military technology suggests the potential for great destructiveness should conflict take the form of major violence. Many of these potential regional conflicts may well be constrained, however, by the difficulty that local powers will perceive in deriving a demonstrable advantage from unleashing them. American diplomatic efforts and technical assistance may well be useful at the margin in increasing such constraints.
