Experts Say

Becoming leaders in nuclear disarmament

I agree with state Sen. Mimi Stewart, D-Albuquerque, that with inexperienced, belligerent, unstable leaders — including our own president — facing off over nuclear weapons, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee must develop clear policies and procedures for launching a U.S. nuclear weapon. And those policies must require more than one person to be involved in this momentous decision (“Stopping our own nuclear threat,” My View, Nov. 26). We will all be safer. I have been working for nuclear disarmament for decades, beginning in the missile field controlled by the Grand Forks Air Force Base in eastern North Dakota. The missile silos were surrounded by vast agricultural fields, including sunflowers, the symbol of nuclear disarmament.
