WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday he would not use nuclear weapons «in any circumstance. «I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance,» Obama said, with a pause, «involving civilians.» Then he quickly added, «Let me scratch that. There's been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That's not on the table.

Where was Obama-Jama when he stepped on his crank on this issue?
This guy shouldn’t be in charge of a outhouse.
VICTOR DAVIS HANSON ON Obama’s Pakistan Invasion: “Apart from the notion that it would be as hard to distinguish civilians in a Waziristan from terrorists as it is in Iraq, which the senator has written off, other questions arise. As a US Senator why not now introduce an October 11, 2002-type resolution, authorizing such an invasion? Or why hasn’t he in the past? Obama has criticized Sen. Clinton for her approval of that Iraqi authorization, but the sort of action he is envisioning involves crossing into a nuclear Islamic country, one bullet away from an Islamic republic, and surely should be a question for Congressional approval.”
He’s a coward.
Under the RIGHT circumstances they will, may but WILL be used against us and we against them.
Hillary is going to shove that statement up his butt. When she does it is going to really irritate the left over at the DNC underground and the kooks at Kos.
Yes he should.
How in the world do people like this get nominated to represent the most powerful nation on earth?
Let’s see... he’s clean, Edwards has nice hair and Hillary wears a pantsuit.
Nah, nah, nah, nah.....nah, nah, nah, nah...hey, hey, hey...good-bye.
Obama wouldn’t even use nuclear weapons if the troops he uses to invade Pakistan are nuked?
Like I posted yesterday, I think this guy was propped up by hillary supporters to make her look more preseidential by comparison.
“Hey Islamo-Terrorists, go ahead and nuke one of our cities, we’re too civilized to retaliate in kind”
This kid needs to go back to playing in the sandbox.
He’s fumbled the nuclear football then.
He’s offered any nation that launches a nuclear strike on the US a “free shot”. No nuclear response.
And military invasion would prove unpopular.
Would he work to disarm our nuclear arsenal?
It may be with great reservation that a President would want to go to war, but EVERY President should be prepared as Commander-in-Chief to GO to war. It comes with the office.
Yep. His political handlers must be shaking their heads at this idiotic remark.
Obama has even more of a run-on mouth than Biden does.
Exactly...this guy should be flushed down history’s toilet as the unqualified POS he is...

There's a reason M.A.D. (Mutually Assured Destruction) worked... both sides knew the punishment for launching.
