The return of nuclear brinkmanship


Brinkmanship is a foreign policy used in the Cold War under which a country will pursue a dangerous issue or event and seek the best results there. An example of a brinkmanship policy.
In 2021, there will be a new international agreement with the world.
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (TNW) pledges the parties not to manufacture or host such weapons. Launched in 2017 and so far with the signatures of 84 countries, it will become law 90 days after 50 of them were ignored. 24 On October 20, 2020, Honduras became the 50th rafter, which triggered the signing of the agreement on January 22. But far from pointing to a new era of hope for overcoming the neoconservatives, it would be a sign of the current alarm that prevention is being dangerously weakened. The world’s nuclear powers have no plans to sign a new treaty. A year of nuclear panic is expected, including confrontation, crisis and possibly a crisis.
The confrontation will be against the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Five-Year Review Conference, or Rio Cain. It was supposed to take place in New York in 2020, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the agreement, but was postponed to 2021 due to the 1921 coup.
The new date of January 21 was penned. It may slip again, but the delay will not lessen the mood around the event.
The NPT summarizes that nuclear powers must refrain from developing nuclear weapons in exchange for nuclear powers working to eliminate them. The last revocation, in 2015, was a flop, ending without a consensus. Since then, the divisions have deepened, as the nuclear deal has either ended (the Intermediate Range is close to doing so (the nuclear deal with Iran, which is still in place despite the US withdrawal). New TPN the answer from some of the W nuclear powers is the agreement between the United States and Russia (or in the sense that the nuclear powers intend to build their weapons instead of dropping them: in short, the NPT is failing.
This rapidly emerging crisis is related to the New Start Agreement between the United States and Russia. The agreement, which limits each country’s strategic nuclear weapons and enables interfering inspections, expires on February 5, 2021, unless the two sides agree to extend it for five years. If it does, the two superpowers, which together account for 90 percent of the world’s power, will be without a nuclear deal for the first time in almost half a century. And if that means a new race for the nuclear arm, the chief negotiator for the United States, Marshall Billingsley, said in May.
The Trump administration wanted to use the deadline to suppress China (which has a relatively small nuclear arsenal but is suspected of planning to expand it rapidly) to include it in the tripartite nuclear weapons deal. Goes The Chinese show no interest in recognizing the sanctions. While discussing the new start in June, the Americans painted a clear picture of Chinese flags in front of the empty seats of Chinese delegates who refused to attend. Although, in the run-up to the US election, Billingsley said an agreement with Russia was “very, very close”, there was little time to keep the new beginning alive.
And the nuclear crisis of 2021? Worryingly, the list of possible causes is long. This includes accidents. Cybertax on nuclear facilities. Reckless Saber Rubbing New test from North Korea Increased border animosity between India and China; Tensions rise over Kashmir between India and Pakistan Further steps by Iran to develop a weapon Threats from other countries to join the nuclear club. And the efforts of gangs to get the “dirty bomb”. In 2020, the world was very disappointed. In 2021, at risk of epidemics, it should not make the same mistake on Nukes.
