ABSTRACT
The article comments on the negotiations held by the U.S. and the Soviet Union in 1981 concerning theater nuclear forces in Europe. In the absence of a wider accommodation in the political category, arms-limitation agreements are evasive. Most likely, the Geneva parleying will go on in the fashion of the negotiations for mutually balanced conventional-force reductions in Europe. The Soviet missiles that are significant to the Geneva parley are in place and growing by scheduled increments. It seems that protraction is likely to be to the advantage of the Soviet Union.
