About the lecture:

The period of continental peace in Europe has been shattered. Whereas many assumed that war would never return to Europe after the Cold War, it would seem that conflict with Russia and Islamic extremism (as well as economic instability) now dominates the once-peaceful European continent. With America’s commitment to NATO and the EU in question, this lecture will address the question whether key countries–such as Germany and Poland–should develop nuclear arms to better defend themselves absent of a firm American defense commitment.
