    Leadership Down Under
    Deepti Choubey April 7, 2008 Washingtonpost.com's Think Tank Town 中文

    Australia is under pressure to make an exception to global nuclear trading rules for India. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has taken a principled stand against the further spread and use of nuclear weapons and materials. In particular, he promised that Australia -- one of the world's largest uranium exporters -- would trade only with countries that play by international nuclear rules.

    The G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit and Nonproliferation
    Taijiro Kimura March 20, 2008

    While climate change is a top priority at the G8 Summit, nonproliferation and the ongoing nuclear challenges of North Korea and Iran continue to be urgent tasks. There is a growing sense that effectively addressing global nonproliferation issues requires concerted action by the international community.

    Disarmament Redux
    J. Peter Scoblic March 20, 2008 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

    Since the United States destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, there have been Americans who have wanted to eliminate all nuclear weapons. Over the decades they have pushed for an emphasis on cooperation over conflict in U.S. foreign policy, a ban on atomic testing, and limits on atomic arsenals, and of course their ultimate goal: complete disarmament.

    Nuclear Power in a Warming World: Solution or Illusion?
    Sharon Squassoni March 12, 2008

    Nuclear energy cannot make a real difference to global climate change. To do so would require a tripling of capacity — building 25 reactors per year to 2050 — a rate of expansion that can't be met by the current infrastructure. As it is, nuclear energy, hampered by a moribund supply chain, will have to grow rapidly to maintain its current market share as demand for electricity doubles by 2030.

    Reading Khamenei: The World View Of Iran's Most Powerful Leader
    March 11, 2008 Washington, D.C.

Sadjadpour argues that Iran's Islamic government is more powerful than it has been ever been vis-à-vis the United States.

    Take Two: Iran's Plan for Nuclear Compliance
    Sharon Squassoni, Nima Gerami March 5, 2008

    The February IAEA safeguards report on Iran indicates that the answers provided by Iran on all but two issues are "consistent" or "not inconsistent" with its information and on schedule with the agreed-upon work plan. However, the final outstanding issues are those most closely associated with weaponization.

    Don't Panic About Space Weapons
    Ashley J. Tellis February 22, 2008 The Wall Street Journal 中文

    When the U.S. launched a missile to destroy a dead satellite that would have otherwise re-entered the atmosphere and possibly threatened populated areas with a toxic load of hydrazine fuel, it resurrected fears about the so-called weaponization of space. Carnegie Associate Ashley J. Tellis comments in the Wall Street Journal on the ongoing “space weapon” debate and praises the Bush administration for rejecting a joint Russian-Chinese arms treaty aimed at banning such weapons.

    Sergei Ivanov’s Strategic Breakthrough
    Rose Gottemoeller February 19, 2008 Nezavisimaya Gazeta

    What a difference a year can make!  Last year, President Putin's speech at the Wehrkunde Security Conference in Munich sent shock waves through the international system.  His uncompromising declaration that Russia was back on the world stage and a force to be reckoned with generated an immediate debate in Washington.  With Secretary of Defense Robert Gates due to speak the next day, the foreign policy establishment stayed up late arguing how to respond: to slam Putin back, or use a lighter touch.  Evidently it was Gates himself who insisted on humor: "One Cold War was quite enough," he said in his famous response—and that has been the U.S. official line toward Russia ever since, through a year of extremely harsh rhetoric from Moscow.

    Car With 2 Steering Wheels
    Nikolay Petrov February 19, 2008 The Moscow Times

    First Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev had a difficult task before him during his visit Friday to the Krasnoyarsk Economic Forum, where he had been expected to reveal his economic program. One week earlier, outgoing President Vladimir Putin described his own economic plan through 2020. Just one day before Medvedev's trip, Putin indicated that Medvedev did not have a separate plan but would only refine the existing one, which is to say Putin's Plan.

    Understanding the NIE
    Sharon Squassoni December 13, 2007

    The release last week of the unclassified summary of the latest National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran provoked a wide range of reactions -- relief that it seemed to dispel the option of a military strike, anger that intelligence seems to be politicized once again, and dismay over how this would affect U.S. policy options.

    Risks and Realities: The "New Nuclear Energy Revival"
    Sharon Squassoni December 10, 2007 Arms Control Today

    Although nuclear safety has improved significantly, nuclear energy’s inherent vulnerabilities regarding waste disposal, economic competitiveness, and proliferation remain. Moreover, nuclear security concerns have increased since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    Assessing the NIE
    George Perkovich December 4, 2007

    Iranian leaders appear to have recognized that by staying within the rules they can acquire capabilities sufficient to impress their own people and intimidate their neighbors, without inviting tough international sanctions or military attack. The National Intelligence Estimate, in a sense, says that Iran is playing the game so well that stopping it may not be possible within the rules.
