A Japanese nuclear arsenal would offer certain strategic advantages (as well as disadvantages). A deeply rooted phobia against acquiring one has so far ruled out even the serious discussion of such a policy. 41 If chemical weapons are more familiar than nuclear weapons, it is still true that only a small number of people in this century have known them at first hand. Approximations of the effects of chemical armaments, however, are part of everyday life in a way that is not true for nuclear weapons.
The world has a considerable supply of both, but it is closer to being rid of chemical than of nuclear weapons. The point is certainly arguable, but on a hypothetical (and difficult-to-construct) scale with disarmament at one end and full-fledged assimilation at the other, a case can be made that chemical weapons stand closer to disarmament than do nuclear weapons. 9 It is true that chemical weapons have been used more often than nuclear armaments. But nuclear weapons are in other ways more central to international politics.
The Athenians were unwilling to leave their city unfortified and thus open to attack while the Spartan fortifications stood. 1 In response to the Spartan proposal the Athenians dissembled. They sent an envoy to Sparta for discussions. Meanwhile, they put up fortifications as quickly as they could. They used disarmament talks as camouflage for a rapid arms buildup. When the city walls had been completed, the Athenian emissary, Themistocles, told the Spartans what Athens had done and asserted that the fortifications enabled them to deal with Sparta on an equal footing.
