With the way Obama coddles the palestinians and the arabs...I think Israel will nuke Iran BEFORE Bush is out of office!!!

The idea of the Obamanator with nukes crossed my mind the other day and it worries me.....a lot.

With any luck he won’t lose them.

The good news is that the skinny little kid cannot order an attack. The nuclear war procedures account for a wackjob President. They also account for the President failing to attack.

Depends. Did Oklahoma beat Texas in football the previous Saturday?

That all depends on how much the president* hates Okies.

Oklahoma is a red state. No response will be considered necessary.

It is much more likely to explode in Washington, D.C., New York City, LA, Miami, or Houston.

Correct.

The good news is that there are still grown ups monitoring our national security, no matter who occupies the WH.

He may get to carry around something they tell him is the real deal, but without the ability to get a security clearance he won’t get the code to open the damn thing.

BO is doing away with our nukes, the officer assigned to carry the nuclear football will instead be carrying the teleprompter.

OK. a suitcase nuke explodes in Washington, D.C., New York City, LA, Miami, or Houston.... who do you launch at? Mecca? Iran? China? NK? Venezuela? Russia?

If one were launched from some such place,we'd know where to retaliate, and Obama I believe WOULD launch... He'd be impeached if he didn't, repubs and some dems would demand it.

While I accept that the Military has such procedures, I have no doubt that once sworn in Obama WILL have the legal authority to launch an attack.

NO President has ever had the “legal authority” to launch just because he wants to and that is my point. He can launch only under certain conditions and Obama will be no different.

The Rooshians. They’re the only ones who know how to make them, so if they lost it, they gotta pay. (As Dr. Strangelove observed, tho’, TELL them about the policy well in advance. That’s the whole point of a Doomsday Deterrent.)

What’s the matter with Tulsa? Makes for a nice display of power, but with trivial losses to the US and mankind as a whole.

I think impeachment would be the least of his worries. Avoiding dismemberment or defenestration would come higher.
