    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.S. arms control chief urged the world’s nations on Wednesday to hold “a realistic dialogue” about rising global tensions and the challenges that must be overcome to create the conditions for nuclear disarmament.

    Undersecretary of State Andrea Thomson told the General Assembly’s disarmament committee that this proposal “offers a practical way forward,” unlike the U.N. treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, which she called unrealistic.

    “A realistic assessment of the security environment must recognize, regrettably, that we have much work to do to create conditions conducive to nuclear disarmament,” Thomson said.

    She pointed to high regional tensions in South Asia, the Middle East and elsewhere as well as growing nuclear stockpiles in Asia.

    3. There seems to be no objective reality for most American political leaders.

    It’s the damnedest thing. Why again, do we select mentally ill people to establish our laws and policies?
