Bush, Putin Agree to Slash Nuclear Arms
Ignoring the political bullshit at the end, and the very fact that these agreements mean essentially nothing in the real world as far as military and destructive capabilities, this is still one of the few stories I have read that has made me feel good in a long time.
Someone has finally pulled their head out of their ass (yes, I do say that a lot), and relized how ridiculous our nuclear arms race had become. What possible benefit was there to being able to destroy the entire world a hundred times over? How realistic was it to maintain, protect, and upgrade such a force?
The reality today is that war has changed again. Just as formation battles passed away, no longer does brute force make any sense. You cannot simply beat someone into submission any more.
