More Good News

Still refusing to get my hopes up, but the Guardian has another encouraging piece regarding Obama wanting to scale back the States' nuclear arsenal. If the suggested agreement for the US and Russia to reduce themselves to 1500 deployed warheads each comes to pass (that's more than a 33% reduction for the US, and almost 50% for Russia), that would be good news indeed.

Under normal circumstances I would try to find out why the French are being cagey about the phrase "a world without nuclear weapons" (beyond the self-evident fact that it's never going to happen), but as it stands the story manages to make the future look bright, Obama look awesome, and the French look like pricks, so I've already got everything I need out of it.
