Lost in the Furor

There were a couple of good op-eds on arms control issues in the New York Times this week, but they got lost with all the other furor.

Mikhail Gorbachev: America and Russia should do a joint assessment of missile threats. They could start from here.

Kenneth "Cakewalk" Adelman actually has a good idea: outlaw intermediate-range ballistic missiles across the board. But he seems to think America and Russia can do this by themselves. WRONG! You'd need negotiations with everyone who has them. America and Russia might come up with a first draft. Could be he's trying to distract from Obama's initiatives, too.

And on global warming:
