True to form, our President has proposed a dangerous 80% cut in our nuclear weapons arensal. An absurd reduction in light of today’s developments in Iran, China, etc.? Of course, but like a good union man in negotiations, he is proposing the preposterous so that he can appear to “compromise” and get what he really wants – possibly a 50% reduction. We can appreciate the Republicans who are vowing to fight this but they need to know the name of the game. ANY reduction is going to put our country in the position of looking weak and the bullies always go after the guy who looks the weakest.
