“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
The United States is currently facing a monumental challenge in its efforts to cope with hostile nuclear proliferators. The policies and the military capabilities that served the United States during the Cold War are less effective in today's environment. The U.S. government must re-valuate its military capabilities and adjust its strategy to effectively cope with hostile states and prevent those states from using their nuclear or conventional weapons against the United States and its allies, providing nuclear weapons to terrorists organizations, developing or trying to acquire nuclear weapons, and transferring nuclear weapons technology to other states.
