La Vigie, n° 92 :
The Cold War was based on a very deep ideological rift between two well-identified camps. This opposition was a perfect match for the construction of a nuclear deterrence based on the strategic dialectic between two actors.

Therefore, a new strategic grammar seems necessary to think about this nuclear patchwork.

Other political and strategic models could then emerge, devoting effective alternative actors. Weather is getting worse.
