Obama nuclear weapons manifesto is detailed
Los Angeles Times ^ | April 5, 2010 | Paul Richter

Posted on 04/05/2010 5:38:44 PM PDT by Cheap_Hessian

Reporting from Washington - The Obama administration is releasing a major statement on nuclear weapons policy that will herald a further shrinking of the U.S. arsenal, even as it rejects some sweeping steps advocated by arms control advocates.

The statement, to be released Tuesday, will announce that the arsenal will shrink by thousands of warheads, and it will further restrict when the weapons may be used, U.S. officials say. But the administration has rejected proposals to declare that the "sole purpose" of nuclear arms is deterrence, nor will it promise that the United States won't be the first to use nuclear weapons in a war, say people who have been close to the discussions.

The document, called the Nuclear Posture Review, is an important part of President Obama's program to reduce nuclear arms, which moves into a higher gear in the next few days. Obama will sign a U.S.-Russian arms treaty in Prague, the Czech capital, on Thursday and will host a nuclear security summit in Washington next week.

His review is expected to omit some of the more hawkish statements made in 2001 in President George W. Bush's review.

Well, Obama wouldn't want to limit his options in dealing with the Tea Party movement.

With each passing day a new outrage. This man is not an American. It’s as if China, Cuba or North Korea sent someone here to govern the country.

He is the most outwardly anti-American person ever to hold office. At least “Jimmuh” tried to act as if he was the President of the USA, and not some advocate of everything un-American on a mission to punish the American people.

Come on Novemebr 2010 and 2012...get here soon so that America can put an American back in the White House.

It's scary to think that this bratty, spoiled Child in Chief has the nucular football at his disposal.

In a infantile fit of rage at the opposition from some Americans, he'd have no problem eliminating what he considers to be problematic for his agenda.

And mock them after he did it.

Who authored this document?

Who authors ANY of this crap? Who "authored" Obamacare, who authored all this crap coming out. Its not him, he's too busy playing basketball and making campaign speeches. I wrote DeMint not long ago and asked him who writes this stuff .. no answer, unusual for DeMint.

You've got a 'legit' question, I'd like to know the answer too. (We know Bill Ayers wrote his book, maybe he's slumming writing legislation?)

Mutual Assured Destruction has kept them FROM being used on us for 50+ years.

He thinks HE knows better?

He’s been reading those stupids t-shirts his kids wear about no nukes.

He will be impeached and this next election will pave the way for that to occur.

I notice that he hasn't gotten rid of the Secret Service Protection for himself. And I'll bet there's no sign on the White House saying "we won't right back if you attack HERE". Nope, the man understands he and HIS family need to be protected. He just doesn't extend that protection to the people of this country...

Obama is the front man. Internationale is behind this. They final have a president who is too stupid to know that he is dismantling the USA. Clinton was an American at heart and he didn;t follow the marching orders. When they sacrificed him on the alter of impeachment, he escaped and did them in. Obama is the retaliation. Look at Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and now this dick head... all young. All charismatic. All very much to the left and ALL have seriously damaged America.

Will the nukes be retargeted to the RED states? And accepting the title “RED states” is infuriating. RED is the enemy, which I guess we are to the communists, but they are enemies to our country so they are red to me.

OBAMA TELLS WORLD: USA WILL NOT USE NUKES IN SELF-DEFENSE



Marcus Tullius Cicero

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

It would be ironic if the first strikes wipes his supporters off the face of the Earth, which certainly would be the case. But a more serious analysis of this latest announcement causes our allies worry. The US of Obama ain't a deterrent to the use of nuclear weapons against them anymore.

The ultimate foreign policy destructive dilemma.

Obama is undermining US sovereignty — that’s the overriding principle of his foreign policy, as well as his economic policies.
