ABSTRACT
In November 2001, U.S. President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin met at Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, to discuss a variety of issues, including reduction of nuclear weapons and the existing Antiballistic Missile Treaty, established between the U.S. and the Soviet Union in 1972. On May 24, 2002, during Bush's visit to Moscow, the two world leaders signed the Moscow Treaty on Strategic Offensive Reductions. At the time the treaty was signed, the United States and Russia each had about 6,000 long-range, or strategic, nuclear weapons. The treaty calls for reducing this number to between 1,700 and 2,200 by the year 2012. While the treaty was generally applauded, some felt it did not go far enough. INSET: Untitled..
