Deterrence and defense in a nuclear, biological, and chemical environment by Robert G Joseph( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a paradox of the present security environment that at a time when the United States has renounced the possession of offensive biological and chemical weapons and is reducing fundamentally the role of nuclear weapons in its defense posture a number of actors are actively pursuing such weapons. These include not only rogue states such as North Korea and Iran, but also nonstate actors such as the Aum Shinrikyo cult that employed sarin gas in the Tokyo subway. Moreover, as the May 1998 nuclear tests in India and Pakistan demonstrated, the value ascribed to these weapons in some regions of the world is actually increasing. In fact, as evidenced by the use of chemical weapons in recent conflicts despite the strengthening of international legal norms against the possession of NBC weapons, barriers to possession and use may actually be eroding. For these reasons, NBC proliferation represents a growing and direct threat to U.S. security strategy and to the ability of the United States to use military force as an instrument of that strategy. The intelligence community has published various assessments of more than two dozen countries that are actively pursuing NBC weapons programs and has identified many of these states as currently possessing or seeking ballistic missiles with ever longer ranges. The Department of Defense report, Proliferation Threat and Response, presents an equally troubling vision of the proliferation threat. Congressional publications, including The Proliferation Primer released by the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, make clear that the profound security implications stemming from NBC and missile proliferation are shared by both the executive and legislative branches
U.S. nuclear policy in the 21st century by Robert G Joseph( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear weapons will continue indefinitely to play an indispensable role in U.S. national security policy: as a hedge against uncertainties, to deter potential aggressors who are both more diverse and less predictable than in the past, and to allow the United States to construct a more stable security environment. Recent nuclear tests by India and Pakistan make it clear that nuclear weapons remain part of the security setting. The aggressive pursuit of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons by states such as Iran and North Korea underscores the role of deterrence as a central component of U.S. security strategy
Ballistic missile defense : the need for a national debate by Robert G Joseph( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a strong consensus in the United States concerning the need for active defenses against theater ballistic missiles, defined as missiles with a range of 3,500 km or less. This consensus was forged in the Gulf War, when Iraq launched conventionally-armed missiles at Israel and Saudi Arabia one striking a U.S. barracks, causing one-quarter of the U.S. combat fatalities of the conflict. Iraqi missiles were derived from the 1950's-vintage Scud-B missiles previously provided by the Soviet Union. The political and military utility of even these relatively crude missiles was not lost on other states who would use force to achieve their own territorial and political objectives
Countering WMD : the Libyan experience by Robert G Joseph( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 19, 2003, Libya announced to a surprised world that it had decided to abandon its nuclear and chemical weapons programs, as well as its longer-range missiles. Within hours, Prime Minister Blair and President Bush made separate but coordinated statements welcoming Tripoli's decision. Both made clear that Colonel Qadaffi had made this historic choice following months of secret contacts with the United States and United Kingdom. The author of The Libyan Experience, Ambassador Robert Joseph was at the center of this single most successful counterproliferation event of the decade. As the director of the National Security Council's counterproliferation activities, he was one of very few involved in, or even aware of, the secret face-to-face negotiations that preceded Libya's renunciation of its programs to acquire weapons of mass destruction. In fact, he headed the policy discussions with the Libyans that led to this historic and dramatic outcome. What occurred during those months has never before been made available publically or recorded in sufficient detail to answer key questions about Libyan motivations or to identify the lessons learned from this case that may apply to other proliferation challenges. In The Libyan Experience, Robert Joseph fills the void by providing this first hand account of the events that led to this great counterproliferation. Here is the actual history presented by a central figure involved in that success story. The narrative is both scholarly and highly-readable; at times it as much a real-life thriller as it is an historical text. As only a direct participant can, he describes the interactions with the Libyans and assesses their implications forboth Tripoli's decision and for the future. This is the definitive, true story that now is told thanks to the author's intrepid work and to his meticulous, highly readable accounting and assessment of events. This is a story that is profoundly important to our understanding of pro

The Case for Nuclear Deterrence Today( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper first recalls that the morality and utility of nuclear weapons have been debated passionately since their creation, and that today, noted groups have revived the debate, again calling into question the role of these weapons in the contemporary security environment. The analysis addresses the validity of the main propositions of such groups which regard morality and ethics, but also the utility of the nuclear weapons, the risk of accidental use, the belief that possession by one stimulates acquisition by others. The analysis highlights the continuing rationale for maintaining a credible and effective nuclear weapon posture, especially because of the need to provide a hedge against a reversal in relations with Russia and China.--SCAD summary

The Impact of NBC Proliferation on Doctrine and Operations( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NBC proliferation is recognized as a serious threat across the operational spectrum--from the deployment of forces to post-hostility activities. References to NBC frequently aggregated under the rubric of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) appear often in policy and capstone statements such as the national military strategy and Joint Vision 2010. At present NBC is also mentioned in service doctrine (for example Army Field Manual 100-5 and Air Force Manual 1-1) as well as in more technical manuals on detection decontamination individual protection and biological warfare/chemical warfare (BW/CW) shipboard defense
