Letter on Missile Defence and Nuclear Disarmament to Obama and Medvedev/Putin

Letter on Missile Defence and Nuclear Disarmament to Presidents Obama and Medvedev/Putin


Dear  ,

The attached Open Letter to Presidents Obama and Medvedev addresses missile defense deployments in Europe, a critical point of ongoing contention between the US and Russia that is capable not only of ending the possibility of nuclear disarmament but of restarting a nuclear arms race between the two countries and others.  NATO deployment of a missile defense system in Europe is a scenario for nuclear disaster, and it is being provoked by US hubris in pursuing a technology that is unlikely ever to be effective, but which Russian leaders must view in terms of a worst-case scenario. 

We invite you to review the statement and to join us in signing it.

supported and sponsored by the United States and voted for by
virtually all the nuclear weapons states), the Indian 'Reducing
Nuclear Danger', a worthy resolution that ought to attract much more
support than it does, in the New Agenda resolution, (where it is new
and welcome language that helps to focus the resolution more on
disarmament), and in the NAM resolution.
