Posted on 02/15/2012 8:42:50 PM PST by Nachum
Reducing the U.S. nuclear force by 80 percent, a move under consideration by the White House, amounts to unilateral disarmament at a time when the Iranians are nuking up, Rush Limbaugh said today on his radio show.
There are some things happening today that are downright scary, Limbaugh said. The regime, led by Barack Hussein Obama, is weighing options for reducing our U.S. nuclear force. Folks, this is staggering. Meanwhile, the Iranians are nuking up.
The conservative talk-show host said the nuclear weapons reductions will not make the world safer and instead will shift the balance of power away from America.
We are unilaterally disarming, he said. We are not requiring the Russians to go along, and even if the Russians said they would match these reductions, they lie. That is the lesson of the Russians and nukes.

The will to use them is the key.
This is putting the world on the path to WWIII.
The Obama plan would reduce the American nuclear shield to around 1000 warheads, of which 300 would be deployed.
Keep in mind that each Trident submarine carries 24 Trident D-5 ICBMs, with up to 8 MIRVs per missile = 192 warheads. Obama wants to reduce us to a nuclear deterrent roughly equal to 1.5 ballistic missile submarines. The rationale for this is not just infinitely stupid, it is dangerous.
I beg to differ good sir. The rational is infinitely brilliant if you wish to harm our great nation. Obama is not a fool. Obama is a radical left wing Marxist. If you look at each and every decision he has made it is totally and clearly rational if one is a Marxist.
Obama is scaling back America while passing technologies and money to the Islamic world. Empowering Islam.
... and Iran and pakistan have the will to use them.
Global stability requires a strong America.
How did we let this measly man get in charge of our defense?
This guy thinks America is evil and needs to be taken down a notch, perhaps a lot of notches.
Bright side: After some of cities are nuked and a couple 100,000 people are dead there will be less impact on global warming.
“We are unilaterally disarming”
As you suggest, Obama has already disarmed us by his assertion that he will never use nuclear weapons, even in retaliation. Getting rid of the actual weapons hamstrings any future president (on the off chance we have any president other than O during his lifetime). Obama putting his brand on America is turning out to be more like a barbecue.
Obama’s nuclear weapons plan is only scary if one accepts the notion that the continued survival of the United States in a demonstraby hostile world is something toward which we, as a nation, should strive.
On the other hand, if one seeks the destruction of the United States and all she stands for in the world, then Obama’s position makes perfect sense.
The sooner the better.
Where’s General James Mattoon Scott when you need him?
It makes a first strike takeout of our deterrent possible...
This guy is really starting to scare me.
Even the threat would be enough to coerce the US.
Add Islamic 'world domination' to the mix and we'll find ourselves in an interesting position.
To be rational, one must adhere to the tenents of reason. By definition, being a Marxist means you ignore reality for the sake of ideology.
The only way Obama is not a fool is if you measure him solely by the principles to which he subscribes... which by any standard of reason are the standards of the irrationality, evil, and insanity.
Barry wants to go from 57 states to 58... and more... and then back down to 1--the New Caliphate.
The Republican party needs to stop screwing around and get its act together...this man is taking us down some very dangerous roads.
