Vipin’s take on Menon’s book will no doubt add impetus to this compulsion. But it’s not too late to avoid reprising the U.S.-Soviet counterforce competition on a regional scale.

Such possible intentions and doctrine suggest a possible shift away from Delhi’s heretofore NFU pledge. As Shivshankar Menon writes, in his book, Choices, “India’s nuclear weapons are not meant to redress a military balance, or to compensate for some perceived inferiority in conventional military terms, or to serve some tactical or operational military need on the battlefield.

Such interest in preemptive counterforce would constitute a radical shift from India's initial post strategy designed to “ride out and survive a first attack and retaliate later” and its explicit rejection of launch-on-warning postures.

He questions the generally accepted belief that counterforce capabilities are inherently destabilizing. Because of enduring asymmetries in vital interests and conventional force capabilities, the author argues that the United States, more than the Soviet Union, has a need for a credible and advantageous nuclear initiative.

Theory. In nuclear warfare, enemy targets are divided into two types: counterforce and countervalue.A counterforce target is an element of the military infrastructure, usually either specific weapons or the bases that support them.
