    Damn.. this is embarrassing.. the leader of the previously free world bent over, doggy style, when it comes to Foreign Policy.
    Russia on for seconds with this nuclear arms deal, previously the missile shield. Begging China for more loans to buy an election. Iran policy.. bent over begging for help. North Korea, nothing. Bank bail-outs to foreign countries. Bowing low to Muslims worldwide and blaming America at every opportunity.

    Damn .. we sure could do with a cowboy wearing a white hat about now..

    Reducing the worlds nuclear stockpile by 1/3 is a win for the entire world.

    i think many of us have forgotten what its like to worry about nuclear war...to have nuclear war drills, movies like red dawn....

    its the oddity of russian/usa nuclear arms race. instead of resulting in all out war, it was actually the arms and fear of real nuclear war that resulted in relative safety during the entire cold war. who is to say what happens when a rogue nation or group gets their hands on a nuke or nukes...

    I have to agree that it is so much more relieving than to have the world on a perpetual hair trigger.

    And I remember the drills too, but they ended in Portland schools in 1969. the last one we did was in 4th grade, and we didn't do one for fifth grade.

    I think the last time we ever went near that point was in October of 73, when the Russians said they would make sure Israel didn't move on Damascus.

    Of course, there were some pretty hairy moments for a while in the spring of 77, when it wasn't sure who had control of the button in Peking, and it seemed they might start shooting after Mao died. A civil nuclear war would have been something else.

    Given what is going on in Russia, having fewer nukes there is a Good Thing.

    As things stand now, there is no reason to have that many nukes. There is no nation state big enough to make it worth while, except Russia and China, and we are on good terms, sort of, with both of them.

    And with 1000 nukes still left, anyone else who wants to make trouble, they will be resolved quickly.
