to persuade democracies, and to leave aside those nuclear weapons states, russia, china, and above all, north korea, that are impervious to any kind of outside rational argument. but to focus on other democratic states that are part of the western alliance or the asian states that under extended deterrence, risk being perceived as a discriminatory movement, and it risks having that used against the movement. it will be easy for people not only in the city but elsewhere to say that this is a one side movement that seeks to damage western national security without addressing what is happening in, or the nuclear policies of nondemocratic countries. and, in fact, again, i think perkovich makes his point well. it actually risks emboldening the nuclear posture and the doctrine of use of those nondemocratic countries. how do you persuade those countries? well, i know, at i think anyone who's worked in arms control as a bitmap knows that one of the built-in frustrations is that the issues that we hear passionate about and that we get immersed in and we become expert in, seldom rise to the
