    All he would have to do, instead of talking about starting talks with Russia, is to say this: "I'm announcing today that we're cutting 1000 warheads from our arsenal [which would still leave us "ahead"] and I strongly encourage Russia to do the same. Once they do, I fully expect to announce a cut of another 1000 warheads, and invite them again to follow suit."

    Negotiations? Why the heck do you need negotiations for this? Just DO it (sorry, Nike). We have so much overkill it's ridiculous, as everyone knows. So it is a trivial matter to do real reductions and not just talk about them.

    If one is serious, that is.

    In reality, this is primarily about ratcheting up pressure on Iran with its non-existent nuclear weapons program and North Korea with its primitive one.
