Obama Campaign Sets Sights On Nuclear Weapons

The New York Times reported yesterday that Barack Obama will announce a goal of eliminating nuclear weapons worldwide, with the United States leading the way by drastically reducing its vast nuclear stockpiles.

Mr Obama's proposal echoes the words of John Edwards, who we reported as saying that he wants to be the president who "rids the world of nuclear weapons."

The anti-nuke platforms of Edwards and Obama seem to reflect a developing political climate. Back in January a bi-partisan group of former high-level government officials, including the infamous Henry Kissinger, urged immediate actions by the US to reduce nuclear stockpiles in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece. The fact that these top contenders for the 2008 presidency are advocating a nuclear free world make this dream a real possibility. Let us hope that these ideals catch on.
