Obama calls for 'world without' nukes [Obama naive beyond description]
POLITICO ^ | 4/5/09 | JONATHAN MARTIN & DAVID S. CLOUD

Posted on 04/05/2009 7:38:02 PM PDT by valkyry1

PRAGUE – Just hours after North Korea launched a long-range rocket, President Barack Obama called for "a world without nuclear weapons" and said the United States has a “moral responsibility ” to lead the way, as the only nation ever to use them.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Speaking to Iran, the other nation widely thought to be pursuing nuclear weapons, Obama reiterated his campaign pledge to engage the Tehran regime, winning applause for saying, “We believe in dialogue.”

Obama “I'm not naive. This goal will not be reached quickly –- perhaps not in my lifetime. It will take patience and persistence,” he told an adoring crowd that waved miniature American and Czech flags. “But now we, too, must ignore the voices who tell us that the world cannot change. We have to insist, "Yes, we can."

He can’t possibly in any way think that there will ever be a world without nukes. It doesn’t even make sense to say that. What will happen to them? Where will they go? What on Earth is he talking about? Lord have mercy on the US.

No, what it will take is the development of new weaponry that will render nukes as obsolete as the pike and battle ax are today in warfare.

Years ago I had a political science professor who described that kind of thinking as “my mother’s theory of geopolitics”.

They have evaluated him and found him to be a weakling. His weakness will lead to bolder actions on the part of America’s enemies abroad.

winning applause for saying, “We believe in dialogue.”

The line "we believe in dialogue" sounds good only to those who are stuck in a pre-9/11 mentality, and who cannot comprehend the intentions of Islamofascists. After Obama dismantles our security apparatus put in place by Bush/Cheney and as a result we're hit with another major terrorist attack the slogan "we believe in dialogue" won't be nearly as popular, to put it mildly.

I guess he’s running for Resident of Euroweenies too.

If Bibi was not yet convinced about having to take the nukes away from Iran on his own, well he should be convinced now.

An adoring crowd - yuck.

Being fluent in Obonics, I can interpret this:

" I'd like to buy the world a home
and furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees,
and snow white turtle doves.

I'd like to teach the world to sing
in perfect harmony,
I'd like to buy the world a Coke
and keep it company."

I only wish he was naive. He is playing on the naivete of his moonbat supporters, certainly, but his aim is to bring our country down.

He is a far-left Communist. There was never a Communist leader anywhere who took this approach. They manipulated the peaceniks in the U.S. and elsewhere to further their aims, but they were never peaceniks themselves.

You picture reminds me of Thomas Jefferson's opinion of Napoleon...

“Bonaparte was a lion in the field only.
In civil life, a cold - blooded, calculating, unprincipled usurper, without a virtue; no statesman, knowing nothing of commerce, political economy or civil government, and supplying ignorance by bold presumption.”

Except for the lion in the field part, this fits Zer0 to the T.

They will disapear because you will destroy yours and I will destroy mine. Then there will be no nukes.

Really. Trust me.

I would not lie about a thing like that.

He seems to get really carried away with himself when he is overseas.

Does he really think Iran or N.Korea would give up their nukes if they have them. Does he believe that Russia will not be cheating before the ink is dry on the treaty?

Now that he has taken on the burden of civilizing the world, I present a little Kipling for President Obama.

When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

This guy is still on the campaign stump. Seems he's never stopped campaigning, for what, I have no idea.
Who is he trying to impress with his speeches. At this point in time, less than 100 days after his inauguration Obama has out spent all the Presidents before him. Weakened America to a point where even a failed country like North Korea is showing him up as the most weak, inept, and ill experienced President to ever attempt to lead this country. America and Americans will pay for this blunder. Already people are attempting mass murder in cities and villages throughout the country.
I have no doubt that al-Qaeda, or some belligerent like Iran will soon attempt an attack on the U.S. But even after that attack Obama will speak out but do nothing about the blood running in the streets of our nation.
As an example of what I said. Obama as state legislative politician brought about the means allowing the state and specifically the city of Chicago to have one the highest crime and murder rates in the country. Now with the help of the Democratic Party majority in D.C. for the past 2 plus years we are seeing a rise in murders though out America. Since Obama was elected we have lost more policemen in the line of duty than during the last administration.

He can’t possibly in any way think that there will ever be a world without nukes. It doesn’t even make sense to say that. What will happen to them? Where will they go?

Hopefully, they'll go towards turning South Korea's DMZ into beachfront property.

Realistically, they'll go nowhere. As few as 100 nuclear weapons could render even the largest of nations into a poisoned, medieval basket case for centuries. That threshold is far lower with most nations.

What President Obama doesn't understand is that the prospect of making your enemies extinct, or turning their land into a poisoned, medieval basket case for centuries, is a very attractive prospect within human nature. With a little guidance, that urge can be civilized and suppressed, or it can be fed and nurtured, but either way, it exists.

Getting rid of the weapons is pointless. Even if you destroyed them all, the knowledge to create them cannot be uninvented. Someone could recreate them, and eventually, someone will.

There are a few scenarios on how to exist in a world with nuclear weapons. None of them sound good; none of them are good. Obama's scenario, on the other hand, sounds nice, but is completely impossible.

Some of us, maybe. But think about it. The most likely places to be hit by a coordinated effort (and I think that's what will happen...several bombs, suicide, roadside, whatever) are New York, San Francisco and the most vulnerable, I believe, Washington, DC.

If Washington, then people will die who have close connections to the ruling class. That will change perspectives.

If only the children WERE in charge. I know a Boy Scout troop that would do an admirable job of leading the United States. One lad in particular would make a great C-in-C, he’s great with video games and always wants the latest weaponry when he’s blasting away to get to the next level. Perfect.

No, the children aren’t in charge. The Lunaticks are in charge of the asylym. And several of them are sociopaths. The one in charge — The Great Pretender — has delusions of grandeur: he thinks he’s the Messiah.

Learn from the English? How about learn from Chicago.

Mayor Daley may not want the citizens to have guns, but there would be a snowball fight in Hades before he'd disarm his own police.

Imagine a world where guns were outlawed.

This happened once, in medieval Japan. In the 1600s, the Japanese had some of the most advanced firearms in the world. By the 1700s, they had none. For cultural reasons, they were banned. When Admiral Perry arrived in 1853 to forcibly open their ports to outside trade, the Japanese had no power to resist him whatsoever.

When a nation disarms itself for cultural reasons, it leaves itself vulnerable to those who did not. Period. History is merciless on this point.

Kimmy's launch advances Zero's no-nukes agenda the same way the daily shooting massacres are advancing his anti-gun agenda.

With the breakneck speed in which this "global regime" is coming together, I'd guess the timing of the launch and this speech were entirely coordinated.
