My friend Ed Lozansky over at Russia House launched this petition a few days ago and I think it's a great idea. If you do too, please sign it. I did. It takes about a minute to do.
Here's the text of the petition:
Ronald Reagan famously said: "A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought. The only value in our two nations possessing nuclear weapons is to make sure they will never be used.”
Unfortunately, today a new Cold War between the US and Russia again poses an existential threat to the people of both nations and to the whole world. Therefore, we urge President Trump to follow in the steps of Ronald Reagan and to start a direct dialogue with President Putin in search of solid and verified security arrangements.
As President Trump said repeatedly "only haters and fools” do not understand that good US- Russia relations are also good for America. By all indications President Putin feels the same way for his country.
A summit should be arranged as soon as possible.
Here's the link.
