SO, TECHNICALLY, IT WOULD BE WRONG TO CALL THE PLAN “SOPHOMORIC:” “In the depths of the cold war, in 1983, a senior at Columbia University wrote in a campus newsmagazine, Sundial, about the vision of ‘a nuclear free world.’ He railed against discussions of ‘first- versus second-strike capabilities’ that ‘suit the military-industrial interests’ with their ‘billion-dollar erector sets,’ and agitated for the elimination of global arsenals holding tens of thousands of deadly warheads. The student was Barack Obama, and he was clearly trying to sort out his thoughts.”

He doesn’t seem to have done a lot of sorting since, actually, to judge from the rest of the piece and what’s going on now. But if you want a nuclear-free world, wouldn’t a good start be to stop Iran and North Korea from getting nuclear weapons? Not seeing much action, there . . . .
