(USA/China) Launch Arms-Control Talks with China (Defense One)

Louie Reckford writes for Defense One: Reporting on China’s buildup of silos that could house nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missiles caused a new round of calls for the United States to not only continue its ambitious and expensive nuclear weapons spending, but to accelerate it. This is a predictable reaction from those in favor of an ever-increasing defense budget, but also a deeply misguided one. Instead of spending trillions of dollars on upgrading the world’s most dangerous weapons, we should heed the bipartisan tradition of the 20th-century arms-control efforts.
