BREAKING : US says it has 5,113 nuclear warheads (THANKS OBAMA)
Yahoo ^

Posted on 05/03/2010 6:54:09 PM PDT by Scythian

WASHINGTON – The United States has 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile and "several thousand" more retired warheads awaiting the junkpile, the Pentagon said Monday in an unprecedented accounting of a secretive arsenal born in the Cold War and now shrinking rapidly.

The Obama administration disclosed the size of its atomic stockpile going back to 1962 as part of a campaign to get other nuclear nations to be more forthcoming, and to improve its bargaining position against the prospect of a nuclear Iran.

What's next?

Does he want to de-arm our military and require that they take courses in begging and running?

Does he want to put a halt to American elections or, well, do it the Chavez or Castro's way?

Does he HATE US?

This demonstration was huge. I was on a bus going in the opposite direction of the march as it went eastward on 42nd Street and it went on for a long time.

All, please, if you can, read the details of what I posted earlier, check the hyperlinks (Cora Weiss and Rev Sloan), and what I have on my FR Home page on the subject of Obama, his college "thesis", and the 1980s pro-communist "no nukes" movement. I think I may have just stumbled onto something else that ties him to the 1980s KGB operation out of Riverside Church.

Carter was a stupid liberal who, in his feeble and warped mind, thought he was doing the right thing for America and its people.

Barry is a pseudo-intellectual who hates the US and is doing everything in his power to destroy this country.

Although the disclosure may be inadvisable, no law has been broken. The Executive Branch has the responsibility for controlling National Security information. The President calls the shots by Executive Order.

For Immediate Release December 29, 2009 Executive Order - Classified National Security Information

"This order prescribes a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism. Our democratic principles require that the American people be informed of the activities of their Government. Also, our Nation's progress depends on the free flow of information both within the Government and to the American people. Nevertheless, throughout our history, the national defense has required that certain information be maintained in confidence in order to protect our citizens, our democratic institutions, our homeland security, and our interactions with foreign nations. Protecting information critical to our Nation's security and demonstrating our commitment to open Government through accurate and accountable application of classification standards and routine, secure, and effective declassification are equally important priorities.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, by the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows....."

Ok - So you are saying that giving public information as to the ACCURATE number of weapons in USA arsenal IS NOT a breech of security?
How so? Why so?
It thought people went to prison for revealing this information in previous administrations!

"And I’m sure there is a law covering the disclosure of top secret information regarding our nuclear arsenal."

And I am likewise quite sure there is a law covering the disclosure and/or selling of our long-range missle technology to our communist enemy, China. But that sure as hell didn't stop Bubba (BJ) from selling it for campaign cash. Let's get real here. The DemocRATS are above any law of man and "they think" they're above any law of God, since they really don't believe in God. They'll find out otherwise some day. Alas, I doubt that will be any consolation to us for a long, long while.

Keep praying. It's the ONLY thing that can help us now.

On the one hand, yes, this is unprecedented. On the other hand, it’s not as if every other country in the world didn’t already know that we have thousands of nuclear warheads, enough to destroy the Earth several times over. That’s pretty much common knowledge unless you’ve been living on an asteroid the last 40 years. Once it gets to the point where you have over 5 THOUSAND nuclear weapons, a large majority of them in the megatons...well, it doesn’t really matter if our enemies know the exact number of weapons we have, does it? All that matters is their knowing that the U.S. can obliterate every country, everywhere on Earth — which everyone already knew anyway.

We DON’T HAVE 5000+ nukes. Your all forgetting to subtract the 4000 or so nukes that have already been retired and are just awaiting disassembly and nullification.

Here’s a link to a must-read article on Cora Weiss and the 1980s communist-led “no nukes” movement which is underway again. 100,000 or more in Times Square on May 2 (2010). Same bunch from the 80s! Both movements were initiated from Riverside Church in Manhattan (2 blocks from Columbia University and College). Obama was a part of the movement in the 80s and clearly again now!

This is so outrageous. If we don’t put our own internecine struggles for supremacy in the Republican Pary aside for now; if we don’t turn out in force in November and vote to oust every last effing Democrat, we will share the blame when Obama’s policies literally blow up in our faces.

The Pentagon figure released Monday...does not include thousands of warheads that have been disabled or all but dismantled.

Estimates of the total U.S. arsenal range from slightly more than 8,000 to above 9,000, but the Pentagon will not give a precise number.

“...Keeping those weapons out of the figure released Monday represented a partial concession to intelligence agency officials and others who argued national security could be harmed by laying the entire nuclear arsenal bare.”

Whodda thunk “hope and change” meant the destruction of the United States of America.

I did. Anyone who paid the slightest attention to Obama's resume had to know he is a bona fide Marxist. Marxism and the principles on which the United States was founded are antithetical to one another.

Back during the 2008 primaries, while FReepers were still fighting the political wars of the Clinton years, and were seeing "RINO's" everywhere, a few of us saw the real danger: Obama, and whoever backed his incredibly fast rise to power.

I don't know about the rest of you so-called real conservatives, but I'd rather have a George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Rudolph Guiliani, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, or whoever's gearing up to run in 2012 in the White House than Obama any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Great find, ETL. It kind of ties all the Marxists together.

This sets a record low for the President. This is an intentional weakening of the defense infrastructure. At this rate the US will be overrun by the Iranian-backed Venezuelian Air Force early 2011!
In his inaugural address, didn't he swear to “...preserve, protect an defend the United States from enemies, foreign and domestic”???
This is either naivete’ at best or an intentional neutering of the military...sad, sad, sad! Putin and his cronies in the Kremlin are toasting to yet another amazing American, self-induced fiasco!

You know what else came from 1962? The book Seven Days in May (made into the famous movie in 1964)...

Obama thinks he can actually gain a 'bargaining' position with IRAN? C'mon -- who really believes this? I mean he went to Islamic School. He knows what "bargaining" with an Islamic Theocracy means -- there is not "bargaining".

This is not some comic book universe Obama! You are NOT Superman!!!
