JERUSALEM – President Obama plans to offer Russia a deal whereby each country would reduce its nuclear weapons stockpile by 80 percent, the Times of London reported today.

The proposal is consistent with Obama's previous calls on the campaign trail for the elimination of all the world's nuclear weapons, arguing the Cold War is over.

Obama's statements came even while Russia reportedly worked to revive its Cold War-era naval activities and weapons supply channels to former allies in a clear challenge to the U.S.

WND also reported one nuclear adviser to Obama proposed Israel give up its nuclear weapons to ensure Iran halts its illicit nuclear program.

The Times quoted an official from the Obama administration stating the president seeks a radical treaty to cut the number of nuclear warheads to 1,000 for each country. Also, the official said Obama would review a plan by the Bush administration for a U.S. missile defense shield in Eastern Europe, a project fiercely opposed by Moscow. (Full story at WorldNetDaily)
