The triangulation of U.S.-Russian nuclear arms reductions, nuclear abolition, and nonproliferation creates problematical paradoxes and issue overload for the currently challenged policy making processes throughout the international community.

Interest in nuclear abolition and in missile defenses complicates linear and time tested approaches to nuclear arms limitation, although not fatally.
