Growing Nuclear Capabilities in the Middle East and Their Implications for U.S. Security

Growing Nuclear Capabilities in the Middle East and Their Implications for U.S. Security

This testimony delivered before the Senate Armed Forces Subcommittee on Strategic Forces provides an overview of Israeli and Iranian capabilities and doctrines.

The testimony concludes with some thoughts on what this means for the United States, to include the strategic choices we confront.
