Call to Obama to commit to global disarmamnet

leftDemocrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has called on Barack Obama
to take the lead and commit himself to working for the global
elimination of nuclear weapons.

 
She said: "We must recognise nuclear weapons for what they are 
- not a deterrent, but a grave and gathering threat to humanity.
As president, Barrack Obama should dedicate himself to their world-
wide elimination".
She pointed out that President Reagan, despite his past, had said 
"We seek the total elimination one day of nuclear weapons from the
face of the earth".
Today Mrs Feinstein said: "Seeking new weapons and maintaining 
massive arsenals makes no sense. It is vital that we week a world
free of nuclear weapons. The United States should lead the way,
and a President Obama should challenge Russian President Dmitry
Medvedev to join us."
