Bits and Pieces - More Nuclear Stuff

And this will continue for at least the next week, with a small hiatus before the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference in May.

An analysis from Britain's Royal United Services Institute reminds me that I should have added in the international nature of the NPR as one of its positives.

Good overview of the NPR by Joshua Pollack.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in The Guardian.

Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of the Security Council of Russia, on New START.

I hope Anatoly Dobrynin knew about the nuclear progress before he died.

U.S., Russia reach deal on disposing of plutonium from nuclear weapons. Very likely this was a collateral success alongside the New START negotiations. Not being able to agree on this is one of the dumb things that was exacerbated by George Bush's bellicosity.

Republicans who like New START:
Stephen Hadley, who was George W. Bush's National Security Advisor.

Peter D. Feaver, who was on the National Security Council staff under Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
