The article argues for the strengthening of U.S. resolve to end the proliferation of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the post-Cold War era. It means integration of a non-proliferation policy into the foreign policy of an assertive, powerful and strong U.S. state. It also means changing the liberal arms-control policy adopted and implemented by the U.S. government with President Dwight Eisenhower's Atoms for peace program in the 1950 and morphed into the ineffective multilateralism.
