At last, a believable sighting of that peace president many of us thought we had elected. Give Barack Obama credit, big time, for the startling progress he has made in tempering the threat of nuclear annihilation.Howie P.S.: Not everyone is as enthusiastic: "Revised US Nuke Policy Offers Few Changes" (Democracy Now! with video/audio). Ben Cohen (TrueMajority.org) wants us to "Help Obama end our long nuclear nightmare."
After decades of both Republican and Democratic administrations indulging the absurdity that “nuclear war fighting” could have a humane outcome, Obama has reversed course. It took 150 meetings, including 30 at the White House, and the president’s frequent direct intervention. The outcome is a bold statement of nuclear sanity, and for that President Obama should be applauded.
