The arguments in favor of the United States' declaring that the only purpose of its nuclear weapons is to deter others who possess them from using theirs – in other words, that in no circumstances will this country use nuclear weapons first – are far stronger than the arguments against this stance. It must be hoped that the next US administration will take this no-first-use step promptly.
