Mr. Mian states the USA has undeclared fissile nuclear material that could produce thousands of weapons.

The USA undeclared fissile nuclear material destabilizes any movement to non-proliferation. C-Span2 is hosting initiatives to non-proliferation. There was a rather elegant speaker from Japan who is also a social worker there, that stated (my words) "Now is the time to capture the non-proliferation movement and remove these very wrongful bombs. They are not bombs for national security, they are weapons of murder." 

Zia Mian (click here) directs the Project on Peace and Security in South Asia, at the Program on Science and Global Security. His research and teaching focuses on nuclear weapons and nuclear energy policy, especially in Pakistan and India, and on issues of nuclear disarmament and peace. Previously, he has taught at Yale University and Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, and worked at the Union of Concerned Scientists, Cambridge (Mass.), and the Sustainable Development Policy Institute, Islamabad....

Mr. Mian is co-author to this book:

Harold A. Feiveson is Senior Research Policy Scientist in the Program on Global Security at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.

Alexander Glaser is Assistant Professor in the Woodrow Wilson School and in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University.
Zia Mian is Research Scientist and Director of the Project on Peace and Security in South Asia at the Woodrow Wilson School.
Frank N. von Hippel is Senior Research Physicist and Professor of Public and International Affairs Emeritus in at the Woodrow Wilson School. Von Hippel is a former Assistant Director for National Security in the White House Office of Science and Technology.

No American General is going to derail the non-proliferation movement and the goal of peace without nuclear weapons.

“Elimination of these nuclear materials is not only key but also possible. This valuable and timely book shows us how.”
Mohamed ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, 1997–2009

Mr. Mian stated today, "...follow the fissile material and the politics will follow."

Achieving nuclear disarmament, (click here) stopping nuclear proliferation, and preventing nuclear terrorism are among the most critical challenges facing the world today.
Unmaking the Bomb proposes a new approach to reaching these long-held goals. Rather than considering them as separate issues, the authors—physicists and experts on nuclear security—argue that all three of these goals can be understood and realized together if we focus on the production, stockpiling, and disposal of plutonium and highly enriched uranium—the fissile materials that are the key ingredients used to make nuclear weapons....
