  • Our government should establish a policy to abolish nuclear weapons. It should set the conditions and schedule for fulfilling that goal by taking the following steps:rn
    • Declare a no-first-strike policy.
    • Declare a no-pre-emptive strike policy.
    • Declare that the U.S. will never threaten or use a nuclear weapon, regardless of size, on a non-nuclear nation.
    • Sign the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT). Our pledge to end testing will open the way for non-nuclear states to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which has been held up by our refusal to sign the CTBT. Honor the conditions set in the NPT for nuclear nations.
    • Reverse our withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and honor its stipulations.
    • End the research, testing and stockpiling of all nuclear weapons of any size.
    • Dismantle all nuclear warheads from their missiles.
