Nuclear Pachyderms

Andrew Northrup is one of the few people in the big, wide blogosphere who actually gets it. Wish I'd found his site sooner.

The US (and Russia, China, Britain, Israel, India, France, Pakistan, and North Korea) have not taken the necessary steps to prevent proliferation - in fact, many of them have done just the opposite. Endless war is not a permanent solution to proliferation - that has to be diplomatic. But that is not going to happen in the next few months - stop gap measures are needed to get us to that point. And even were a total ban of nuclear weapons to be agreed upon, it would still require enforcing. We will be confronted with this question again - what will we do? The fact that our current leadership has no apparent long-term strategy is no argument against dealing with the near-term situation. Ignoring the problem now will just make it that much harder to deal with in the future.

Right on, brother.
