This article discusses the dilemma faced by the U.S. over the extent and use of its military power in the event the cold war with the Soviet Union eases before major steps are taken toward general disarmament. The author stresses the kind of military establishment which might be appropriate for the U.S. should there develop a continued easing of the level of East-West tension. He discusses the relevance of maintaining balance in the U.S. power base and the need for restraint and firmness for the pursuit of both political stability and military security.
