Lots of accumulated blathering from me in this morning’s newspaper. First up, a fun thumbsucker on the Obama administration’s rhetoric regarding zero nuclear weapons (sub/ad req.) and what it might mean in practice:
Supporters of a world without nuclear weapons, who include prominent hawks like former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, argue the world would be a less dangerous place.
Critics of the idea say the horrific nature of nuclear weapons prevents conflict between nations that possess them. “The likelihood of war goes up, not down” in a world without nuclear weapons, Robinson argued in an interview.
