Nuclear weapons don't create stability, they depend on it. If a cheap, unsophisticated blip of can ratchet up tensions between nuclear-armed governments, then perhaps it's time to admit the risks are intolerable and these weapons have got to go.

Above all, it is important for the US and Russia to reaffirm that nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. Sustained dialogue is the only way to ensure that the threat of nuclear war is minimized as much as possible. 6/6

These talks should also include a Trump-Putin agreement to extend New START, which limits both countries strategic deployed nuclear arsenals and is due to expire in 2021, and discussions on resolving the INF Treaty dispute. 5/

Putin has presented this opportunity for the US and Russia to engage on a bilateral agreement. The Trump administration should take advantage of this window to open broader strategic stability talks as well. 4/

Increased U.S.-Russia tensions and the heightened risk of nuclear use are worsened by the lack of strategic stability talks. The two largest nuclear powers in the world have not had sustained strategic talks in over a decade. 3/

Under Trump’s Nuclear Posture Review, the WH has pushed for new low-yield nuclear weapons due to a Russian strategy to cross the nuclear threshold to “de-escalate” a conflict. These weapons were already unnecessary. With Putin’s statement this should be further questioned. 2/

There’s no such thing as a “small” nuclear weapon. The moment one of these bombs is used, all bets are off. No nuclear-armed foe will stop to measure the mushroom cloud before they decide how to retaliate. A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. Full stop.

Interesting take about how the US should use its relatively favorable position with Russia to move forward on nuclear arms control.
