ACTION ALERT: Tell President Obama to Make Drastic Nuclear Cuts


July 10, 2009

The Moscow Summit between President Obama and President Medvedev demonstrated improved US-Russian relations, but very modest progress on nuclear disarmament. President Obama promised “dramatic” cuts in nuclear arsenals in a new agreement with the Russians. The announcement that a new US-Russia treaty will seek to limit each side’s nuclear warheads to between 1,500 and 1,675 represents some progress, but it is far too modest. Send a message.

(July 9, 2009) — The Moscow Summit between President Obama and President Medvedev demonstrated improved US-Russian relations, but very modest progress on nuclear disarmament.

During his 2008 presidential campaign, President Obama promised “dramatic” cuts in nuclear arsenals in a new agreement with the Russians. The announcement that a new US-Russia treaty will seek to limit each side’s nuclear warheads to between 1,500 and 1,675 represents some progress, but it is far too modest.

These new figures would not have to be achieved until 2016, which would coincide with the end of President Obama’s second term, should he be re-elected. In order to arrive at President Obama’s stated goal of a nuclear-free world, far more dramatic steps are needed.

Steps that the US and Russia must take together include making further reductions in nuclear weapons, taking thousands of nuclear weapons off of high-alert status and committing to a binding No First Use policy.

Click here to write to President Obama today and ask him to take these bolder steps in order to lead the world to the complete abolition of nuclear weapons.
