Abstract : This memorandum examines Soviet weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It is the author's opinion that there can be no doubt that the Soviet Union is and will continue to be the principal adversary of and threat to the United States. The massive, unrelenting, and ominous buildup of Soviet conventional and nuclear forces undermines deterrence, destabilizes international security and, therefore, cannot be viewed by US political leaders and military planners with equanimity.
