      A number of different military options are available, below the level of deploying new INF missiles in Europe. However, Europeans need to consider trade-offs regarding crisis and arms-race stability. Clearly the Germans produced the weapons of the future (although some were employed late in the war), while the Americans were armed with weapons designed 30 years earlier — for World War I. In his memoirs, “War As I Knew It,” Gen. George Patton records his astonishment at finding a high-pressure German pump that fired a six-foot long. The treaty called for the destruction of 2, intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs) with flight ranges of –3, miles. Included in the treaty were U. S. Pershing II missiles and ground-launched cruise missiles as well as Soviet SS-4, SS, SS, and SS missiles. This relationship is examined in light of the striking variation in levels of German peace protest against INF missiles, the Gulf War and the NATO peace-keeping mission to Bosnia.
