Arms Treaty Appears to Have Votes to Pass Senate – NYTimes.com

The treaty requires the United States and Russia to reduce their nuclear stockpiles so that within seven years of ratification neither deploys more than 1,550 strategic warheads and 700 launchers. It would also require the resumption of on-site inspections that lapsed last December when the original Start treaty expired.

Don’t know about you, but I’m figuring 1,550 warheads just ought to be enough. Glad to see this moving forward.
