A World Without Nuclear Weapons

Mushroom CloudSeptember 11, 2001, shook this country's collective sense of security, and threw into question the ability of military force to ensure our safety. But what if the 9/11 terrorists had used nuclear weapons?

Joe Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, believes we are at a tipping point in the struggle to make the world safe from such weapons: "World leaders—even former nuclear adversaries—have come to agree that nuclear weapons no longer guarantee our security; they threaten it."

This video was produced by the Ploughshares Fund.
