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.

Gee, did they report where all their locations were, and the guard changes, and how long the change took, and where the spare set of keys were hidden?

You're right - it shows our good will when we offer launch codes... shows we're team players.

I'm sure the rest of the world will be sending theirs along any day now...

“Might as well give the launch code while we’re at it:

Please double check it, it didn’t work :)

Everyone knows we have enough to turn Russia and China into glass parking lots if need be. Whether we have 5000 or 5100 doesn’t matter

Had a high ranking officer done this, or even a private for that matter, he would have been brought up on treason charges.

What does this man have to do to prove he is a traitor?

The American Delegation walks out on stinky at the UN and Obama turns around and spills secrets. This country is run by idiots.

Can the President spill any secret based on his on whims?

Well, of course you make a good point, but still, giving stuff away like this just doesn't make sense. Probably 200 warheads could ruin the planet.

You know it! We have been taken over from within just like Kruschev said would happen!! Gunny G met Russians in the 80’s who told him a black man would be our president in the US, that he was already being groomed and was a communist.

This is why obumber would never have been given a security clearance if he had not been elected. He could never pass the background check.

I think the only ones who didn’t know the number of nukes were the average citizen... I’m sure all the intelligence agencies around the world had a pretty good count a long time ago ... :-)

All this means is that the “average Joe” on the street now knows how many we have ...

This is a meaningless gesture on Obama’s part ...

The article states ...

Independent analysts estimate the total world stockpile of nuclear warheads at more than 22,000.

We only have 1/4 of them? Think about this, what if all 22,000 nukes were used in a huge war, we really are a race of beings gone mad when you honestly sit down and think about it.
