The article presents the views of George Perkovich of the Carnegie Endowment of International Peace on nuclear disarmament. Perkovich stated that U.S. interest in nuclear disarmament arises from the perception that a world without nuclear weapons will provide them with a greater advantage over those who threaten them or their allies. The author believes that Perkovich may be saying that the U.S. will reign over global security with the elimination of nuclear weapons.
