Going back to the nuclear precipice as Trump mulls rearmamentTen years ago, during his first trip to Europe as U.S. president, Barack Obama delivered an historic speech in Prague. Much to the delight of the crowd, Obama described a world free of nuclear arms as being both desirable and within reach. Though the Obama administration did end up deprioritizing nuclear disarmament over time, Trump seems to have replaced that goal with its polar opposite: rearmament.While the U.S. and Russia are forbidden under the treaty from possessing land-based missiles with a range of 500-5,500 kilometers, an estimated 95 percent of China's missile arsenal now comprises precisely such weapons.As Obama emphasized 10 years ago in Prague, the U.S. is the only country ever to have used nuclear weapons, and therefore has an historic responsibility to ensure that they are never used again.
