    Yeah, well they must begin before they can finish.

    I don't know, that seems to happen by folks of various political persuasion.

    Apparently that notion escaped American leadership. And that could lead to a nuclear armed Iran. Though US and Israeli intelligence hasn't even confirmed an Iranian desire for them, as yet!

    It did not escape the greatest POTUS of my lifetime.

    Best Reagan Quotes on Nuclear Weapons
    “We seek the total elimination one day of nuclear weapons from the face of the Earth.”
    Ronald Reagan, Inaugural Address, 1985
    “A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. The only value in our two nations possessing nuclear weapons is to make sure they will never be used. But then would it not be better to do away with them entirely?”
    Ronald Reagan, 1984 State of the Union
    “It is my fervent goal and hope…that we will some day no longer have to rely on nuclear weapons to deter aggression and assure world peace. To that end the United States is now engaged in a serious and sustained effort to negotiate major reductions in levels of offensive nuclear weapons with the ultimate goal of eliminating these weapons from the face of the earth.”
    Ronald Reagan, October 20, 1986
    “I can’t believe that this world can go on beyond our generation and on down to succeeding generations with this kind of weapon on both sides poised at each other without someday some fool or some maniac or some accident triggering the kind of war that is the end of the line for all of us. And I just think of what a sigh of relief would go up from everyone on this earth if someday–and this is what I have–my hope, way in the back of my head–is that if we start down the road to reduction, maybe one day in doing that, somebody will say, ‘Why not all the way? Let’s get rid of all these things’.”
    Ronald Reagan, May 16, 1983

    “My central arms control objective has been to reduce substantially, and ultimately to eliminate, nuclear weapons and rid the world of the nuclear threat. The prevention of the spread of nuclear explosives to additional countries is an indispensable part of our efforts to meet this objective. I intend to continue my pursuit of this goal with untiring determination and a profound sense of personal commitment.”
    Ronald Reagan, March 25, 1988 Message to Congress on NPT

    It escaped the leadership who was racing to create the nasty bugger. Apparently it escaped them and those that continued to produce them, that a nuclear free planet enhanced US strength. As to Reagan's comments on nukes, meaningless platitudes that all presidents utter from time to time. As things are going, Iran will have a nuke, if that's their intention, and they probably will be followed.

    Gotta agree with you on this one.

    We hear many of those meaningless platitudes and promises from the current administration as we have from all the administrations between the two

    Those who created it (including some of the finest minds of their generation) were in the middle of a war for the future of civilization. As for RWR, I doubt you'll find another POTUS as persistent and clear on the subject. As both the Soviets and the air traffic controllers found out at great cost, he meant what he said.

    And creating weaponry that could snuff out hundreds of thousands of lives in a flash was the grand scheme to save civilization, In the meantime, we worry about what Iran may do if they ever acquired them should they ever decide they'd like to have them.

    Except when he couldn't remember what he said. And he did nothing to eliminate US nukes. Talk is cheap.

    Reagan and Gorbachev signed the INF Treaty in 1987, which eliminated an entire category of nuclear weapons for the first time, and he laid the foundation for President George H.W. Bush to complete the first Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.
