ABSTRACT
The article considers the options available to the U.S. in the 1983 Geneva negotiations on nuclear forces. Kenneth Damm and William Clark will be representing the U.S. in the coming Geneva conventions. Expectedly, the U.S. will go for the zero option, which means no intermediate-range nuclear weapons on either side of Europe. It is safe to assume that the Soviet Union will concede to a reduction of their nuclear weapons, with the condition that the U.S. would do the same until it has no nuclear weapons. Given these assumptions, it is highly unlikely that both parties will agree on a zero-zero option.
