What’S The Force That Moves The Hand That Pushes The Button?, Edward Campbell 2016 Independent Scholar

What’S The Force That Moves The Hand That Pushes The Button?, Edward Campbell

Edward H Campbell

All contemporary nuclear warfare strategies are strategies based on deterrence.  They are formulated to oppose a state actor which also possesses nuclear weapons. The Islamic State however is not vulnerable to strategies based on deterrence, therefore the United States can only resort to a "win-the-war" strategy.

An Exploration Of Early Romanization: A Comparative And Semiotic Approach, Mikel Wein
