The launching off point will be my forthcoming article in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, titled, "Next customer, please: The risk in conventional arms sales along with nuclear energy deals."

The conference call will last 45 minutes, with 30 minutes of Q&A. You may submit questions for the conference call in advance by replying to this post.
