ABSTRACT
The article addresses several issues concerning the proposed Chemical Weapons Convention treaty as of May 1997. According to the author, the reasons given by those who oppose the disarmament treaty is persuasive and serves as a reminder of the abiding power of the superstition that disarmament leads to the abandonment of force as an instrument of political advancement. The author asserts that the proposed chemical weapons treaty would probably have the same effect in robbing the U.S. of future flexibility. Furthermore, the treaty tends to ignore axiomatic reality.
