Excerpt
The great asymmetry in Chinese Communist and U.S. nuclear capabilities arid vulnerabilities makes Chinese Communist first-use of nuclear weapons highly unlikely except in the event o an attack upon the mainland which threatened the existence of the regime. Apart from serving as an additional inhibition on some levels of U.S. attack upon the mainland, a Chinese nuclear capability need impose no new military restrictions on the U.S. response to aggression in Asia (e, g., on amphibious operations). A limited ChiCom intercontinental capability, when and if achieved, would not eliminate this basic asymmetry. But the Chinese Communists (and non-Communist Asians) might believe that such a capability would have increased effect as a deterrent because of an unwillingness by the U.S. to assume the risks, in situations in which its interests were marginally engaged, of the absolute level of damage which the ChiComs could inflict.
