Abstract:Regional military denuclearization is a general strategy which might reduce the risks of nuclear weapons ever being used in the Middle East. There is now no comparabele strategy universally in effect in the region. Several, but not all, Middle East states are adherents of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, thereby offering a foundation for area-wide military denuclearization. In a effort to further the discussion of Middle East nuclear issues, this paper examines two major of military denuclearization, the Iraqi-Israeli controversy, including Israel's destruction of Iraq's Osiraq reactor, and the Begin preventive-strike doctrine, Israeli freezone policy, and the Latin American free-zone model applied to Mideast conditions.
