BONN, Sept. 20 — West Germany has plunged into a $77 billion military modernization program that will solidify its position as the leading military power in Western Europe.

The foreign policy of the Jimmy Carter administration was the foreign policy of the United States from Janu to Januwhen Jimmy Carter served as the President of the United held office during the Cold War, a period of sustained geopolitical tension between the United States and the Soviet Union.

Upon taking office, Carter reoriented U.S. foreign policy. Submarines had a vital, if often unheralded, role in the superpower navies during the Cold War.

Their crews carried out intelligence-collection operations, sought out and stood ready to destroy opposing submarines, and, from the early s, threatened missile attacks on their adversary's homeland, providing in many respects the most survivable nuclear deterrent of the Cold War.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Federal Republic of Germany, where the bulk of the remaining short-range nuclear forces (SNF) are stationed — forces whose support is essential for current NATO modernization plans. To better meet the challenges facing nuclear modernization in the Air Force, we recommend that the Air Force develop a master plan for each of the two nuclear roles that AFGSC supports: the land-based strategic deterrent and the strategic bomber deterrent.

The United States Air Force currently deploys about Minuteman III ICBMs (as of February 5, ) located at F.E.

This article builds on the analysis published by Kristina Spohr-Readman in the Fall issue of the JCWS about the decision in December by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to deploy intermediate-range nuclear forces in Europe.

Since nuclear deterrence began, some of the forces providing deterrence for the West have been stationed in Europe.

In the early period, when delivery systems did not yet enjoy intercontinental range, European real estate was essential for America's strategic deterrent. But with new intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and sea-based nuclear missiles, introduced in the late.

The second change to NATO’s nuclear strategy is even more recent. West Germany has naturally long been horrified by the thought that NATO could actually use nuclear weapons against Warsaw Pact forces on West German soil in the first phase of a ‘flexible response’: the effect would be obviously devastating for their own country.
