Smart nuclear reduction
The US could save billions of dollars and still have plenty of bombs
There are many ways for war to end: a decisive win, a painful defeat, a slog towards a tenuous political transfer, or even a “surge’’ in the guise of an exit. Any way you look at it, President Obama has gotten us out of two long wars. Surely, the Cold War can’t be harder? We already won. But from the cacophony of chest-thumping hard-liners over the mere suggestion, leaked to the press, that the White House may be considering reductions in our nuclear arsenal, the good old days of duck and cover live on.
