Reykjavik by Richard Rhodes in Stanford – May 2012!

Just over twenty-five years ago the world’s two nuclear superpowers meet at Reykjavik , Iceland to discuss an agenda of limited nuclear arms reduction and human rights.  President Ronald Reagan of the United States of America, and President Mikhail Gorbachev of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and their respective staffs soon abandoned the proposed agenda and the talks transformed into a discussion of the total elimination of nuclear weapons.  For such a topic to be seriously considered by such leaders was unheard of in 1986.  Unfortunately, it is still twenty years after the end of the cold war.  What were Reagan and Gorbachev thinking for those brief hours at Reykjavik?  What was in their hearts and what were their dreams for a new world, a world without nuclear weapons?

New Nuclear Treaty is the Latest Crusade of George Shultz – at 90

From: Mercury News

By James Goodby and Les DeWitt

History is made by individuals, and once in a while events come along to remind us of that.

An example is New START, a strategic arms reduction treaty that is critical to the future of humankind and now is before the U.S. Senate. It is a relatively modest treaty in terms of the reductions in strategic nuclear weapons it will require Russia and the United States to make. But it will reinstate a monitoring process in both countries that lapsed when a strategic arms reduction treaty negotiated during the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush expired a year ago.
