A friend asked if I could “refute” an article about drones published by “Responsible Statecraft,” and I’m not really sure I can.

Ask a hundred folks to explain what No First Use (NFU) means and you might get a hundred different answers. Of course it refers to the pledge or policy of a nuclear power to not be the first to use nuclear weapons in any non-nuclear conflict. Alas, only 2 of the 9 nuclear powers, China (1964) and India (1998) have made that critical pledge needed to ensure nuclear war never occurs. The U.S. violated No First Use when they incinerated 2 Japanese cities tho on the cusp of victory near the end of WWII. Seventy-six years on the U.S. still won’t take the pledge.
