Example text

As early as 1961, Robert A. Heinlein saw the inexorability of perpetual nuclear proliferation and discussed it in his typically unvarnished fashion: “Another change, just over the hill, is that the so-called nuclear bomb club, now consisting of us, the Soviets, France, and Britain, is . . going to become about as exclusive as the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. All of the little nations are going to have them too. . Don’t blame me for it—I don’t know how to make A-bombs. ”53 In the same year, however, another observer made a similar forecast, a prediction that did not in fact specifically happen.

54 If perpetual proliferation is so inevitable, then why didn’t JFK’s forecast come to pass? Since the dawn of the nuclear age, any individual state that has chosen to forego the nuclear option has undoubtedly considered a number of political, economic, environmental, and other variables in performing a cost-benefit analysis on the question. But for most of the states in the world during the past two-thirds of a century, two overriding factors were probably in operation. The first reason that many states did not go nuclear during the cold war was, in fact, the cold war.

The first reason that many states did not go nuclear during the cold war was, in fact, the cold war. Many states probably concluded that they did not need a nuclear deterrent because they fell under the nuclear umbrella of either the United States or the Soviet Union. Germany, Italy, Japan, and South Korea, for example, might well have judged that a nuclear first strike by the Soviets (or even some kind of nuclear coercion or compulsion) was a real possibility without a nuclear deterrent, but believed they had such a deterrent in the United States.
