|His goal will be "a world without nuclear weapons" oh, now that is rich, like that will ever happen because it won't.
No, it won't ever happen until forward-thinking people with an eye to the future set the motions in place to make it happen.
Many people I'm sure never thought that black people would stop being enslaved, that women would get the vote, that gay marriage would be legalised, that the world would band together to sign treaties that stop the use of dreadful weapons such as cluster bombs (oh yeah - except the US).
My favourite quote of all time is `All that is necessary for evil to prevail is that good men do nothing'.
Nuclear weaponry is evil. It should be eradicated. If some people think that's too hard, and decide that if you can't beat em, you should join em, then some people can think that. I prefer not to underestimate the power of humanity. Anything can be achieved if we go about it the right way.
That may initially be contrary to the norm, and shocking to many. But there is no great change without great change to the way we think as well. And you have to start somewhere.
Because, to be honest, US foreign and military policy to date hasn't really got us very far, has it? I wouldn't exactly call it an overwhelming success.
