The article discusses the significant role played by the U.S. in addressing nuclear weapon disarmament in other countries. The author explores the different strategies that need to be carried out by the country in addressing the issue. The strategies include eliminating 1,000 warheads and keeping them on storage sites, developing nuclear weapon programs and the implementation of a national missile defense system. It states that the move will encourage other countries to establish laws and policies which focus on reducing nuclear weapons. Furthermore, it will also lessen the harmful risks posed by the weapons towards individuals and the society.
