Skip to comments.Obama's nuclear spill --Why would the O Force give up America's security secrets?
Posted on 05/06/2010 11:19:23 AM PDT by opentalk
The Obama administration has revealed - for the first time ever - the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal in detail. This information was a closely guarded secret for more than 60 years. By unloading such sensitive information, President Obama is responsible for deliberately exposing a chink in America's defensive armor. The Land of the Free is less secure for it.
On orders from the White House, the Pentagon on Monday released the exact number of nuclear warheads as the 189-nation nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference got under way in New York. The U.S. nuclear stockpile now stands at 5,113 warheads, down from a high of 31,255 in 1967.
Never before has the United States allowed either friend or foe access to such precise information about our nuclear assets - and for good reason. A healthy dread of these awesome weapons has deterred aggression against the American homeland and kept the nation safe.
Disarmament officials and purported peace activists claim the frank U.S. disclosure will elicit similar openness on the part of other nuclear powers, leading them to follow suit. We're not so sure that neighborhood bullies will decide that giving away state secrets is the cool thing to do on the nuclear playground. While revealing the size of the stockpile might earn some diplomatic plaudits for an approval-seeking Mr. Obama, surrendering such information constitutes shortsighted defense policy.

Arab proverb - the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Obama proverb - the enemy of my country is my friend.
Yep, sad but true.
A traitor at every turn, Obama.
He’s a muslim and he wants to destroy this country.
Globally there are enough nuclear bombs to completely kill every human 50-60 times. It would only take the detonation of 500-600 bombs to kill every person on earth.
When will Americans wake up to Obama’s agenda? He’s actively pursuing the destruction of our security - financially and physically. There is no other explanation.
Tic, Tic, Tic, anyone else show their hand yet? Didn’t think so.
Dow Jones down 600 points this week.
I'm not sure where you get your info from.
The vast majority of deaths in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not due to radiation but were due to blunt trauma inflicted on the populations that had not taken shelter and from the ensuing fires that started and burned thousands laying wounded and trapped within the highly combustible debris of their homes and businesses.
Down over 400 right now.
“It would only take the detonation of 500-600 bombs to kill every person on earth.”
Do you actually believe this? 6000 detonations would not kill every human.
Hell, it just became -775 for today!
Maybe if you gathered every human into one large mass and dropped 500 warheads on them this could happen but that is not bloody likely.
Holy crap! We’re down 995! DOW below 10K
down 945, wow Rush-big f —ing deal
NObama was born a Muslim because of his father.
He hates America.
He is doing everything he can to destroy the USA.
Based on that reasoning I should be a Lutheran. I think you fail on that reason.
This doesn't mean you're not correct on the other two, though.
Of course, there is always the maxim “Never attribute to malice that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.” I guess we just live in interesting times.
Research the term "nuclear winter" on the net. If you have access, take a course on Nuclear Tactics at the Air War College.
Why would the O Force give up America's security secrets?
That, I suspect, is quite simple.
Consider Mister Obamas bff and fellow disliker of the responsibility that we remain a dominant military superpower
o needs to go
Fine but if launch orders went out from either side, how many missles would work as designed versus malfunctioning? Not very many. That's why so many are needed. More systems are needed than targets in order to compensate for system unreliability.
More air dropped nuclear bombs were needed than targets existed because of expected losses due to enemy air defenses. More subs were needed than targets because some subs might be destroyed by enemy action and some subs could be expected to be lost due to missles malfunctioning in the tube resulting in loss of sub (similar to the Kursk)
Using NASA as a metric, the space agency probably does no better than 50/50 at getting a satellite launch off on time. Unlike a minuteman sitting in a remote silo years on end, NASA missiles are of fresh manufacture and are attended to by swarms of engineers and technicians. All this for no better than a coins toss chance of launching on time.
Comparing NASA launches to military EWO launches is apples to oranges. NASA has to worry about space traffic, weather, plume, debris, and having people in the crash zone. Military launches under war conditions (EWO) have none of those restraints.
According to the teachings of ISLAM, if one’s father is a Muslim, then the child is a Muslim. If the child converts to another religion( (of from Sunni to Shiite), the child is a heretic, and is to be put to death.
Fallout starts to add up after a hundred detonations. You can cross off your milk supply for a while. Your garden production probably won’t be 100 percent safe. And beef production might be a serious issue for a number of reasons. Mankind on different parts of the globe would survive on....but your lifestyle changes for the next couple of decades.
At a Minimum another 2 and a Half years of this America hater. At the rate this Guy is Going there will be nothing left of this country by then.
And if his father was Shia, and he converts to Sunni, he still gets killed. Islam is a lose-lose religion, with both major and all the minor branches at war with each other. House of Peace, indeed.
