Will we all win the race for nuclear disarmament?

Posted at 7:06 AM on April 13, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

This week Word for Word features former Secretary of State under the Reagan administration George Schultz speaking about the race for nuclear disarmament. From the companion online discussion:

Schultz said that reducing the threat of nuclear weapons must be an international effort:

"International action will not be taken in the face of American exceptionalism -- that is, one rule for us and different rules for the rest of the world. The key to success in getting real international action here is a vision of the global elimination of nuclear weapons, not the elimination of this country or that country, but the global elimination of nuclear weapons."

In your opinion, what role should the U.S. take? Is there any sense of public urgency about nuclear disarmament? Join the conversation.
