So are cruise missiles, whose deployment has been opposed by the U.S. bishops. One possible new challenge -- or drawback, according to INF critics -- posed by the new treaty is that by decreasing the importance of nuclear weapons, it enhances the clout of conventional forces, such as troops and non-nuclear weapons. And the Soviets are regarded by many, including U.S. allies in NATO, as having a probable edge over the West in that category. "The military realities re- main, especially the conven- tional (forces) imbalance," ex- plained Lord Carrington, NATO secretary-general, Dec. 10. "We must keep both nuclear and conventional elements of our defense up to date and adequately funded." "The INF agreement,' he said, "is only a first step."

Their pastoral suggested that "it may well be that some strengthening of conventional defense would be a propor- tionate price to pay, if this will reduce the possibility of a nuclear war. We acknowledge this reluctantly," given the world's other needs, they said. Rather, "we hope that a signifi- cant reduction in numbers of conventional arms and weaponry would go hand in hand with diminishing reliance on nuclear deterrence." In the aftermath of the INF summit, Cardinal Bernardin said, "there is a need to build on the political wisdom demonstrated in this treaty and to utilize that wisdom in the ongoing negotiations on both strategic and conventional arms." Another Catholic group, Net- work, the Religious-led social justice lobby, also urged use of the INF treaty "as a step toward agreement on strategic nuclear weapons and space weaponry."
