This article discusses the new defense strategy being planned by the United States and its implications for European nations. The pressure for a revision in strategy is mounting in the U.S. as the result of some major developments. First, the Russians have steadily built their air forces in the West and now are constructing rocket platforms for guided missiles around Europe. Also, United States army leaders believe that it is better to choose Germany instead of France because they are abler than the latter to defend Europe.
