It seems unlikely that the threat of nuclear war will be “settled” through peaceful evolution and international cooperation in the next decade or so, although these may help facilitate the “eventual settlement.” (2) A more common attitude of qualified rejection of nuclear weapons as useful for any purpose except to deter their use by others.
