The Obama administration has unveiled the plan to revamp the United States' approach to nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Posture Review took a year to draft, and in what's being presented as a break from the past, the guidelines pledge that the U.S. will not use, or threaten to use, nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states.
