day 46 (6/15): in 1946, bernard baruch presents plan un international cooperation nuclear arms control in ashes of wwii usage, saying "we must elect world peace or world destruction." ussr refuses, effectively launching decades long arms race #nhd365 #triumphtragedy19pic.twitter.com/d3p01y0yh3 - by mister_cstewart on Sun, 17 Jun 2018 19:59:27
don’t know salt was?
the strategic arms limitation talks (salt) were 2 rounds of bilateral conferences and corresponding international treaties involving the us and ussr, the cold war superpowers, on the issue of arms control. the 2 rounds of talks and agreements were salt i and ii. - by jodythedeadcat on Sat, 16 Jun 2018 04:12:11

re: balanced budget .... don't forget who got that started (and, in fact, reduced the deficit) clinton
and i'm not sure we can credit the collapse of the ussr the gop (except maybe the arms race bankrupting them (at a cost we're still paying)) - by lizrank on Thu, 14 Jun 2018 19:20:35
thing about reagan is he negotiated ussr and got arms reduction, and kept pressing on human rights. you might recall "tear down this wall" came after the major summits. reagan also never saluted a soviet soldier. - by HarryAngstrom60 on Thu, 14 Jun 2018 13:55:49
it is a shock that they’ve come forward so soon. at least it would recognize someone who actually did something rather than simply aspiring things. the real slap is that gorbachev was recognized by the nobel committee while reagan was not. reagan drove ussr reduce arms. - by cllockhartjr on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 21:20:58
ah but the mic raked the $$ in until the wall came down. peace negotiations hurt the business model. we always have an "other." we're created quite a few. arms race bankrupted ussr,will bankrupt usa - by HillaryGuess on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 17:43:21 [email protected]
is right: trump's approach has echoes of reagan, who "confounded both establishment centrists and his right wing base by focusing not on the details of arms control but on fundamentally changing america’s relationship the ussr." - by GrahamTAllison on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 16:24:59
leftists hate the fact that the ussr is gone and that russia is back in the arms of the orthodox christian church. their only consolation is that lenin is still on display. - by Glavset on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 15:54:34
right on. you might be interested see how reagan emphasized human rights, when he was negotiating actual arms reduction treaties the ussr. - by Freddie24495909 on Wed, 13 Jun 2018 02:05:57
i despise bayard rustin. i'm baffled why anyone wants rehabilitate a 'socialist' and 'pacifist' who waffled on vietnam, supported the arms trade israel + apartheid sa's invasion of angola, and opposed disarmament talks the ussr. yes, i read the @jacobinmag article - by Bunkers4All on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 22:31:06
all through the cold war, us presidents raised human rights while discussing arms control the ussr. trump decided praise kim being so honorable and having his people love him so much...while they sit in concentration camps

the day pakistan supplies arms kashmiris sikh assamese naxal and dalit, india will have the same fate like
ussr in afghanistan
ltte in sri lanka and serbia in bosnia herzegovina
we supplied arms all these and result is well known all - by ishaqkhan1967 on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 18:35:54
stalin signed a treaty about the ussr not seeking nuclear energy. we had an arms race them 30+ years and built enough nukes destroy the earth 30 times over.
this seems very reminiscent. - by tbiadvice on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 17:07:34
the ussr had just as big of a role in splitting the country, they're also the ones who encouraged "their side" take up arms. the us was literally in a defensive position taking part in. un organised response north korean aggression. - by AlbinRM on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 16:19:32
a lot of people on both sides are moral posturing about how just *talking* north korea is bad because they’re evil and murderous.
funny, they didn’t seem feel that way when they made arms/cash deals iraq or iran.
about the 20 million the ussr killed? - by csmjr91090 on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 16:06:35
4. the second reason: reagan's negotiations worked because, in the end, his negotiating partner collapsed. the regime was the problem. had the ussr survived, we don't actually know how reagan's arms control deals would have worked out. - by baseballcrank on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 15:53:22
1. there are two main problems using reagan's arms control deals the ussr as a model denuclearization talks. - by baseballcrank on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 15:48:53
again, a summit is supposed be the signing of an agreement representing advancement of goals as the culmination of diplomatic work—a treaty reducing arms, example. did trump from north korea besides the restatement of old promises? compare reagan/ussr. - by billprady on Tue, 12 Jun 2018 15:20:25
