Example text

The object of deterrence is to prevent the outbreak of war, the most severe of the costs and harmful consequences of arms. It has been customary to treat certain types of arms control as handmaidens of deterrence. 7 With this in mind, the maintenance of appropriate forces for deterrence, coupled with suitable threats, is a form of arms control belonging in this category. So are steps to ensure that deterrence is stable, such as by restricting first-strike capabilities unilaterally or by agreements.

One other way to tackle classification is to think in terms of ends and means, rather than to emphasize arenas or participants or techniques or the specific sorts of forces involved. ” It should be possible to expand on this, to specify what those costs and harmful consequences are. Any arms control measure could then be described in part on the basis of its intended and actual effects. One complication arises because arms control measures can be designed to achieve any number of objectives. A political leader might want progress in arms control largely or solely for domestic political purposes.

At times, an occasion arises out of the failure or near failure of arms control. Deterrence nearly collapsed in October 1962, and this had a good deal to do with producing the atmospheric test ban treaty the following year. India’s nuclear explosion galvanized governments into creating the London suppliers club. An accidental explosion of a nuclear weapon might do wonders for arms control efforts, which is akin to having to wait until a dam bursts before the time is right to inspect seriously and repair other dams.
