If you’re interested in some good analysis of the importance of Barack Obama’s Prague speech framing his non-proliferation goals in terms of a long-term effort to entirely rid the world of nuclear weapons, I would recommend this from Steve Coll in The New Yorker, this editorial from The Economist, this piece by Peter Scoblic in The New Republic. You can also see brief statements from figures ranging from Chuck Hagel and Lawrence Eagelburger to Mary Robinson and Desmond Tutu courtesy of the excellent group Global Zero.

Alternatively, you could listen to New Republic editor in chief Martin Peretz who snifs that “nuclear weapons have served the world well” which will, of course, continue to be true right up until the day that we have a substantial nuclear exchange.

Also see CAP’s Andrew Grotto in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
