ENDI 2 Allied Prolif EXPLANATION This is a simple disadvantage. Since the early days of the Cold War, the Untied States has maintained an extended  deterrence policy. This means that the US will, in theory, treat an attack on our allies – e.g. NATO countries, Japan, South  Korea – as an attack on ourselves and respond, if necessary, with nuclear weapons.  The major benefit of this policy is that it removes the need for allied nations to build up their own nuclear weapons. After  all, if the US is defending them, why would they want to spend their time/money on nukes?  The problem with such a policy is how to make it credible. Any war, even a conventional one, poses a huge risk to the  United States. Enemies are unlikely to believe that, based on words alone, the US would actually come to the defense of an  ally. The solution has historically been to deploy troops. The US keeps forces in South Korea and Japan as a form of trip- wire. If that country is attacked, it is sure that American forces would die. This would force the hand of the United States to  be involved in the conflict.  The disadvantage argues that by withdrawing its troops, the US would diminish the credibility of its extended deterrent,  causing allied nations to build their own nuclear weapons, risking major war.  Some key terms are below: EXTENDED DETERRENCE – The policy that the US will treat an attack on allies as an attack on itself. This obligates the  US to respond, if necessary, with a nuclear attack.
