Unpublished letter to The Times re nuclear weapons policy

Dear Sir,

Our strategy for countering nuclear proliferation seems to have escalated over night from one of vigorous international and bilateral diplomacy backed up with the implied threat of conventional military action in a worse case scenario, to one where our top NATO generals are countenancing pre-emptive nuclear strikes. The public should be very concerned about the dangerous, apocalyptic threats being made in their name, and should speak out against them before Dr Strangelove is resurrected and fiction becomes fact.

Yours faithfully,

John Slinger
