Free Newsletter

Two views of John McCain’s address on nuclear proliferation. Nikolas Gvosdev, who examines it through a political lens and gives it a qualified approval, and the CSIS’ John Wolfsthal (guest posting at Democracy Arsenal), who examines it through a non-proliferation lens and gives it a once over with an aluminum baseball bat.

Ironic, given the differences in how they’d actually deal with Russia.
