Nuclear Weapons

Our government should establish a policy to abolish nuclear weapons. It should set the conditions and schedule for fulfilling that goal by taking the following steps:

  1. Declare a no-first-strike policy.
  2. Declare a no-pre-emptive strike policy.
  3. Declare that the U.S. will never threaten or use a nuclear weapon, regardless of size, on a non-nuclear nation.
  4. Sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Our pledge to end testing will open the way for non-nuclear states to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which has been held up by our refusal to sign the CTBT. Honor the conditions set in the NPT for nuclear nations.
  5. Reverse our withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and honor its stipulations.
  6. End the research, testing and stockpiling of all nuclear weapons of any size.
  7. Dismantle all nuclear warheads from their missiles.
