How Real is the Threat

“The war in Ukraine is the most serious European military conflict since World War II, and threatens to produce the greatest nuclear crisis since the height of the cold war,” writes Walter Russell Mead in the Wall St. Journal. He is one of a growing number of commentators to warn that – as both sides keep raising the stakes – the danger of nuclear confrontation grows. How real is the threat? Who is most vulnerable if the Russians use tactical nuclear weapons? What is the debate over what the US can do to mitigate the threat or how the US should respond?
