Issues in strategic arms control
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person InterviewedEtzioni, Amitai
Examines President Reagan's "zero-option" and the challenges facing American policymakers in negotiating the next round of nuclear arms control agreements.
In 1981 President Reagan proposed what became known as the "zero-option" policy: that the United States and the Soviet Union completely eliminate all intermediate range nuclear missiles in Europe. President Reagan also tied this proposal to an equally ambitious goal - an agreement between the Americans and Soviets that would reduce the overall number of nuclear weapons, rather than merely limiting their growth. In the preceding decade the policy of détente had given way to a nuclear escalation that, despite multiple arms control agreements, had resulted in a massive increase in the number of warheads deployed by the two countries. In this episode, host Peter Krogh sits down with George Weigel of the American Initiatives Project, Amitai Etzioni of the George Washington University, and Allen Weinstein of Georgetown University, to discuss the challenges American policymakers will face in this new round of nuclear negotiations with the Soviets, as well as President Reagan's approach to strategic arms control.
