CNN: Dean Rice on the bomb and Ukraine (along with two other people)

Just came across this.

We know Dean Rice as the chief of staff to Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, but he’s also (on CNN) adjunct faculty at the University of Tennessee and former congressional policy/legislative aide on energy and national defense.

The opinion piece says, in short, that nuclear armament is a concern with the unrest surrounding Ukraine right now:

Russia’s disregard of international law, its apparent successful theft of Crimea and Ukraine’s desperate attempt at self-preservation may result in the end of one of the last century’s most important diplomatic milestones, the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, and with it, the efforts of a generation to walk back the spread of nuclear weapons.

Rice is a noted foreign policy wonk, and he knows his stuff. It’s worth a read beyond what’s excerpted.
