Just one quick point about President Obama’s speech yesterday in Prague on a U.S.-led global agenda for nuclear disarmament. Did you ever think you would hear the president of the United States say this:
There is violence and injustice in our world that must be confronted. We must confront it not by splitting apart but by standing together as free nations, as free people. I know that a call to arms can stir the souls of men and women more than a call to lay them down. But that is why the voices for peace and progress must be raised together.
You wouldn’t have thought a 180-proof-liberalism speech would have embraced theater missile defense as a way of getting Russia to help the United States pressure Iran; and as a way of accelerating U.S.-Russian cooperation; and as a way of getting the Iranians to verifiably abandon all but peaceful nuclear energy, which the Obama administration committed itself to helping.
You might have expected a 180-proof-liberalism speech to have embraced John Bolton’s Proliferation Security Initiative (which, in fairness, liberal arms control experts have always embraced) in order to subsume it within a broader international framework. But still! This sounds like progressivism that invites conservatives to get on board. Especially all those conservatives who praise Ronald Reagan as a nuclear abolitionist.
