The CIA hoped for a success similar to the Guatemalan intervention of 1954.

In this case, the high temperatures of the fireball destroy ozone and create various oxides of nitrogen. This “ hair-trigger alert ” is a 1950's-era relic, leftover from the days of high-stakes nuclear brinkmanship. S. needs a new strategy, a positive vision that combines verifiable arms control, missile defense, a modernized arsenal, and responsible non-proliferation diplomacy.

Bombs can be driven in by trucks from neigh�bouring countries. China is particularly cagey about the size, status and capabilities of its nuclear forces and opaque about the doctrinal approach that might govern their use. Changes in the geopolitical environment and the inexorable advance of military technology here and abroad suggest that the position of nuclear weapons in national security policy will evolve with time. Any costs during this resettlement process could be collected from Iraq, just as the costs of UNSCOM and Action Team inspections are taken from proceeds of Iraqi oil sales.

For the next 40 years, the United States, with its allies, and the former Soviet Union, with its allies, raced to build more nuclear weapons, with each side producing tens of thousands.
