PBS News Hour, April 6, 2010
JEFFREY BROWN: Among other changes, a declaration that the U.S. will neither use nor threaten to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear countries.

But the U.S. reserves the right to make any adjustment to this policy in the case of biological weapons threats. And the new policy doesn’t apply to any countries out of compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, or NPT.

ROBERT GATES: If there is a message for Iran and North Korea here, it is that, if you’re going to play by the rules, if you’re going to join the international community, then we will undertake certain obligations to you, and — and that’s covered in the NPR. But if you’re not going to play by the rules, if you’re going to be a proliferator, then all options are on the table in terms of how we deal with you.

President Reagan, Remarks at Fudan University, Shanghai, China, 1984

We live in a troubled world, and the United States and China, as two great nations, share a special responsibility to help reduce the risks of war. We both agree that there can be only one sane policy to preserve our precious civilization in this modern age: A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. And no matter how great the obstacles may seem, we must never stop our efforts to reduce the weapons of war. We must never stop at all until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of this Earth.

Ronald Reagan, Address at Commencement Exercises at Eureka College, Eureka, Illinois, May 9th, 1982

At the first phase, or the end of the first phase of START, I expect ballistic missile warheads, the most serious threat we face, to be reduced to equal levels, equal ceilings, at least a third below the current levels. To enhance stability, I would ask that no more than half of those warheads be land-based. I hope that these warhead reductions, as well as significant reductions in missiles themselves, could be achieved as rapidly as possible.
