Signs of a World Turned Upside-Down- The US and the Russians have agreed on a nuclear-arms reduction treaty and it barely makes a ripple in the Blogosphere. I think the key reason is that Russia is a loose ally at this point. 9/11 turned them from something of a chilly rival to a loose ally. As long as we have enough nukes to turn any coalition into crispy critters, we can afford to look into trimming our nuclear stockpile. If they exist, they can be stolen or used by a rogue leader in years to come. As long as the decommissioning is verifiable and fairly transparent, it seems like a good idea.
