Bye Bye Nukes!

I'm very happy about this story.
US President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have agreed a new nuclear arms reduction treaty after months of negotiations.
The treaty limits both sides to 1,550 warheads, about 30% less than currently allowed, the White House said.
The deal replaces the 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. The leaders will sign the pact in Prague on 8 April.
A great big "huzzah!" for President Obama! One of the most important tasks for all our leaders is maintaining and moving us towards greater peace; nuclear disarmament achieves not only that goal, but will have long term environmental and financial benefits as well. It makes me feel like we're moving back towards being a good role model for the rest of the world.
