As he promised before he was elected, Obama is seeking to unilaterally disarm the US nuclear arsenal according to the Guardian. Boy, if you think people hate him now…
Barack Obama has demanded the Pentagon conduct a radical review of US nuclear weapons doctrine to prepare the way for deep cuts in the country’s arsenal, the Guardian can reveal.
Obama has rejected the Pentagon’s first draft of the “nuclear posture review” as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials.
Those options include:
• Reconfiguring the US nuclear force to allow for an arsenal measured in hundreds rather than thousands of deployed strategic warheads.
• Redrafting nuclear doctrine to narrow the range of conditions under which the US would use nuclear weapons.
• Exploring ways of guaranteeing the future reliability of nuclear weapons without testing or producing a new generation of warheads.
He really is worse than Carter.
The lefties had this idea in the 80s, that we if got rid of our nukes others would to. It’s an incredibly stupid and naive view that only a fool or someone who wants us to lose can believe. He may be able to order such a change, but he is asking for some serious blow back. Iran and North Korea are arming with nukes. Chavez is planning to. And he wants us to get rid of ours.
If he thinks people are angry over healthcare…
