Abstract

U.S. leaders, scholars, and analysts are calling for a major drawdown of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The Obama administration is right that the United States can safely cut some of its stock, but it must retain the right capabilities. Otherwise, the United States' adversaries might conclude—perhaps correctly—that Washington's nuclear strategy rests largely on a bluff.
