There's a place for arms control in the Trump administration's new nuclear strategy.It asserts that Russian strategy and doctrine emphasize the potential coercive and military uses of nuclear weapons, and calls for two new U.S. capabilities in response – a sea-launched nuclear cruise missile and a "low-yield" warhead for submarine-launched ballistic missiles.But the diminution of arms control as a central part of the nuclear strategy may be just as striking.When the Obama administration did its own reset of the strategy in 2010, it argued the world could be made safer if the U.S. reduced the role of nuclear weapons in defense strategy. Russia is questioning U.S. compliance with the treaty, whose limitations on long-range nuclear weapons took effect Monday.
