"The Looming Nuclear War"
- Despite the fact that the sole purpose of nuclear weapons in contemporary international security and defense policy relates to deterrence there is a looming nuclear war simply because it is always possible that these weapons would be used at some point. This analysis goes beneath geopolitics to look at nuclear weapons as the formidable and indeterminate tools they are but also offers criticism of the USA and Russia for leaving the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) in 2009, a treaty that Reagan and Gorbachev had signed in 1987.
