Obama to Propose New Phase in Nuclear Arms Cuts

President Obama "is set to make the case for a new phase in nuclear-weapons reductions," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Despite mounting tensions with Cold War adversary Russia over the Syrian civil war and missile-defense, Mr. Obama is expected in the speech to say that the U.S. and Russia can reduce their arsenals of deployed nuclear weapons by up to another one-third, beyond the cuts mandated under the 2010 New START, or Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, without undercutting deterrence or capabilities."
