A new nuclear weapons treaty with Russia, ratified last year, apparently does not go far enough to disarm the United States, in the opinion of some.
Top Pentagon officials were ordered back then to look at ways to reduce the nuclear arsenal even more than required by the treaty.
The Mining Journal, and we suspect a great many others, has a real problem with that.
Dozens of U.S. senators stated publicly that the additional nuclear arms cuts without consulting Congress is wrong. Good. Lawmakers should insist on that.
Russia is not the only potential nuclear threat facing the U.S. Our ability to deter enemies must be retained.
