Reciprocal Unilateral Measures

Reciprocal unilateral measures” is not my favorite phrase, despite my rather considerable affection for some of the people who have made use of it. There is nothing wrong with the concept, mind you, but RUMs? Ugh.

The term is back in our discourse, thanks to the Secretary of State’s International Security Advisory Board (ISAB), which has prepared an an otherwise sensible draft report on Options for Implementing Additional Nuclear Force Reductions.

My complaint with RUMs is equal parts pedantic, political and substantive. SInce this is just a draft report, consider this an open letter to the ISAB to drop a term that mars an otherwise elegant idea.

First, the pedantry. Here are some definitions from the Oxford English Dictionary

[Reciprocal] Of the nature of, or relating to, a return (in kind); made, given, etc., in response; answering, corresponding.

[Unilateral] Law. Made or entered upon by one party, esp. without reciprocal obligation on the part of another or others; binding or imposed upon one party only.The definition of unilateral is “without reciprocal obligation” — at best, “reciprocal unilateral” is nonsense. It has no meaning and, at worst, obscures what the ISAB is really proposing.

(1) Not really. It is true that our massive military build up put extreme pressure on the Soviet Union. It is also true that a new generation of Russian leaders, symbolized by Gorbachev, were honestly interested in reforming the system so that a return to the days of Stalinist repression would be impossible. In a sense, everyone won.
(2) Yes, but in a minor way that would've been ignored in any legal preceeding outside of the Impeachment proceedings. There was a time when Conservatives would describe lying about an affair was the honorable thing to do, to protect the reputation of both mistress and wife. Of course those were the days when Conservatism in this country wasn't synonymous with being a member of the Religious Right.
