Excited to share with nuke twitter our @CNA_org report, "Prevailing Under the Nuclear Shadow"! cna.org/CNA_files/PDF/…
In this report, we propose an analytical framework for US policymakers & planners to use in assessing potential options & their ability to support favorable escalation management w/ nuclear-armed competitors.
This framework is comprised of three elements: objectives and tools of US escalation management and what we call a five-phase nuclear escalation management process. (cont.)
This process is intended to act like a "pre-surgery checklist" in considering potential strategic and/or operational courses of action that might be implemented in conflict. It poses a series of questions aimed at uncovering potential escalation dynamics and...(cont.)
...to help assess the prospective COA(s) impact on the US ability to favorably manage #escalation and mitigate potential nuclear use in a confrontation.
We believe this report provides a much needed tool to prepare policymakers and planners for the potential challenges they would confront during a conflict with a nuclear-armed competitor. (cont.)
And while this framework cannot totally eliminate the risk of #nuclearescalation, it does provide a means for US practitioners to proactively improve escalation management strategies in advance of confronting this risk.

And FIN.
