Obama edges toward decision on plan that could mean large new cuts in nuclear arms
AP/Washington Post ^ | July 2, 2012 | AP

Posted on 07/04/2012 9:17:35 PM PDT by Innovative

The Obama administration is moving toward decisions that would further cut the number of U.S. nuclear weapons, possibly to between 1,000 and 1,100, reflecting new thinking on the role of nuclear weapons in an age of terror, current and former officials say.

The reductions under consideration are in line with President Barack Obama's vision of trimming the nation's nuclear arsenal without harming national security in the short term, and in the longer term, eliminating nuclear weapons.

“the White House might put the decisions on hold until after November. ... some have suggested that reductions could be done unilaterally.”

Clearly Obama’s goal is to disarm the US and diminish it so it will cease to be a world power.

Happy Independence Day!

Everything Obama has done, is doing, and will do is aimed at the total destruction of the US, turning into a weak, pathetic communist country.

Illegals. Homosexuals. Health care vampires. Now, defense hara kiri ....
All 0’s doing is slowly, inexorably pushing conservatives, towards Mitt Romney.
If you boosters keep playing it cool—like this thread—instead of pushing him (like used car salesmen) on us, IMHO FR will be giving him `qualified’ support in the months to come, and the support will become stronger the closer we get to the end of October.
“Qualified”: If Mitt screws us over, he’ll face a contested race in four years.
The great amorphous middle is sick of Obama. We here detest him. All Gromit wants are the votes, so we give him his ball, with a rubber band attached to it: a fee simple determinable, as the lawyers put it. That’s realpolitic.
Durant said that civilizations are destroyed from within. It looks like Zero is covering his bets by attacking from within and now, by lowering our swords.
So, one more time—this is Romney’s to lose. Or win.

Obama CAN eliminate the US nuclear arm with an executive order probably, then we’ll be sitting ducks for every agressor, because nobody has to worry that we can retaliate severely.

That is Obama’s goal: disarm the US.

But of course Romney must be the very same on this...../s. Good luck explaining yourself on this one, you know you can't but you'll sputter and froth anyway (and you know he wasn't the same on the first two either).........

But keep working for Bambi's reelection, you and the FR 50, he's sure to change his mind and get far better if we reelect him, I mean, after all he's no worse than Romney, right? Bambi would never sell out our superior military strength, right? So why in the world would we need to get rid of him, right?

Russia’s military spending soars
February, 2011

Russia has revealed details of its ambitious plan to upgrade its army over the next ten years, planning to spend US$650 billion on the project.

­The unveiled large-scale plans of the Russian defense ministry propose the spending of vast sums of money up to 2020.

First and foremost, Russian defense will focus on the development of strategic nuclear weapons, construction of over 100 military vessels for Russian Navy, including construction of four originally French-made Mistral-class amphibious assault ships, and the introduction into the Air Force of over 1,000 helicopters and 600 military planes, including fifth generation PAK-FA fighter.

Most of the military hardware will be equipped with next-generation weaponry.

Obama Pledges Cuts in Missile Defense, Space, and Nuclear Weapons Programs

February 29, 2008 :: News
MissileThreat.com

A video has surfaced of Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama talking on his plans for strategic issues such as nuclear weapons and missile defense.

The full text from the video, as released, reads as follows:

Thanks so much for the Caucus4Priorities, for the great work you've been doing. As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus4Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.

First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.[not win it -etl]

Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.

I will not weaponize space.

I will slow our development of future combat systems.

And I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert [they are NOT on "hair-trigger alert" now -etl], and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.

You know where I stand. I've fought for open, ethical and accountable government my entire public life. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. Thanks so much.

2008 Pentagon Report (March 2008):
China's Growing Military Space Power

By Leonard David
Special Correspondent, SPACE.com
March 6, 2008

GOLDEN, Colorado — A just-released Pentagon report spotlights a growing U.S. military concern that China is developing a multi- dimensional program to limit or prevent the use of space-based assets by its potential adversaries during times of crisis or conflict.

Furthermore, last year's successful test by China of a direct-ascent, anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon to destroy its own defunct weather satellite, the report adds, underscores that country's expansion from the land, air, and sea dimensions of the traditional battlefield into the space and cyber-space domains.

Although China's commercial space program has utility for non- military research, that capability demonstrates space launch and control know-how that have direct military application. Even the Chang'e 1 — the Chinese lunar probe now circling the Moon — is flagged in the report as showcasing China's ability "to conduct complicated space maneuvers — a capability which has broad implications for military counterspace operations."

Open Mic Catches Obama Asking Medvedev for Space on Missile Defense
March 26, 2012

"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.

This is my last election,” Obama told Medvedev. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."

http://fox8.com/2012/03/26/open-mic-catches-obama-asking-medvedev-for-space-on-missile-defense/
__________________________________________________

Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:

Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”

Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...”

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” That statement tells us much about the president’s mindset.

The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the president’s comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.

In addition, there is the phrase “on all these issues,” implying more is at stake than just missile defense.”

...trimming the nation's nuclear arsenal without harming national security in the short term, and in the longer term, eliminating nuclear weapons.

Cannot be done, period, end of story. Disarming in the face of your enemy does hurt national security. Eliminating nuclear weapons can only be done by finding something more powerful.

The only reason our soldiers don't ride into battle on horseback with sabers drawn is that we developed more powerful weapons. Same thing with nuclear weapons. No-one, NO ONE, has ever intentionally, peacefully disarmed. The only way anyone has ever undergone a reduction of arms is involuntarily. Whether it is through armed conflict that they ultimately lose, or economic hardship that eventually reveals their government/economic system as sub-standard (eg. socialism)... That is the only reason anyone has ever disarmed. hussein's dream is insane.

Even if you buy into a totally defensive strategy (which is really, really stupid by the way - as anyone who has studied the matter can tell you), you need an offensive and retaliatory capability to compliment a defensive posture. hussein's dream is stupid, unrealistic, and treason.

I realize that a nuclear weapons free world sounds great. Seems like such a good idea, such an ideal situation. That's the problem with liberals and idealists - they get wrapped up in a grand idealistic vision, that has absolutely no practical way of coming about. No matter how ideal a world without weapons of mass destruction would be, it is never going to happen, never. All you lib lurkers need to wake up and realize that one simple, irrefutable and unalterable fact. There will always be weapons of mass destruction in this world. If we don't have them, someone will be using them against us and/or a lot of other people. End of story. Therefore all your idealism, your wishing/hoping/praying/dreaming it was otherwise is completely futile. What you're wishing for, if we actually did it, would directly result in the death of millions. Now, still want to change things? Are you a psychopath or a realist?

I used to think that Barack Obama was just a typical far lefty socialist type. Now I firmly believe he is actually anti-American and wants to do as much damage to our nation as is possible.

The Chinese Red Army likely has vastly more nuclear weapons than is currently estimated. And they are very good nuclear weapons that are based upon “stolen” American nuclear weaponry technical secrets. If Obama can possibly get away with it, in addition to damaging the US economy, he will lessen American sovereignty and weaken our defenses in a frightening way. It would be possible for US nuclear deterrence to be reduced to such an extreme extent that China could, realistically, figure they could survive a nuclear exchange with us and win a war with the West.

Let’s get busy folks supporting TRUE CONSERVATIVES who want to be elected to the House of Representatives and Senate to reverse Obama’s destructive course.

Disarming in the face of your enemy does hurt national security.

From "45 Communist Goals", as per "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:
Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

I realize that a nuclear weapons free world sounds great.

It sounds vividly stupid.

Reducing nuclear arms provokes China to adventures in the Far East and Latin America. Remember, there are 3000 Chinese operating the Panama Canal on contract. The British used to do that -- get control of chokepoints like Aden, Gibraltar, Singapore, Suez.

Want to mobilize 1.4 billion Chinese? Keep "building down" the U.S. strateigic arsenal -- that is the only thing on God's green earth that their Politburo is afraid of.

That is Obama’s goal: disarm the US.

It's been the Commie Left's goal for the longest. The SANE and FREEZE movements were products of Communist Party USA. Their latest "no nukes" campaign is called "Peace Action". Peace Action is headed by Judith LeBlanc, an at least onetime VP of CPUSA. She, with fellow communista Leslie Cagan, also founded the large "anti-war" group United for Peace and Justice.

Obama will claim that we’re “setting an example”. Even I don’t think he’s that naive. He simply wnat to set out to do what he dreamed of doing as a student. He simply couldn’t care less about the consequences ‘cause he think he (and his ilk) will be insulated from them.

Despite the obvious flaws and dangers of such a policy, there will be lot of Americans who will embrace and celebrate such a policy. Including the vast majority of the MSM. Despite what you hear from them, underneath it all they hate America and themselves.

Obama and the case of the missing 'thesis'
By Jim Popkin, NBC News Senior Investigative Producer
July 24, 2008

excerpt:

The hunt for Obama’s senior “thesis” began with a throwaway line in a newspaper article last October. The New York Times story, on Obama’s early New York years, mentioned in passing that the presidential contender had majored in political science at Columbia and had spent his time “writing his thesis on Soviet nuclear disarmament.”

Journalists began hounding Columbia University for copies of the musty document. Conservative bloggers began wondering if the young Obama had written a no-nukes screed that he might come to regret. And David Bossie, the former congressional investigator and “right-wing hit man,” as one newspaper described him, took out classified newspaper ads in Columbia University’s newspaper and the Chicago Tribune in March searching for the term paper.

Bossie came up dry, but said the effort was well worth it:

“A thesis entitled Soviet Nuclear Disarmament, written at the height of The Cold War in 1983, might shed some light upon what Barack Obama thought about our most pressing foreign policy issue for 40-plus years (U.S.-Soviet Relations),” he wrote in an e-mail to NBC News.

http://deepbackground.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/07/24/1219454.aspx
_________________________________________________

Here is the passage from the New York Times that the above article refers to:

"He barely mentions Columbia, training ground for the elite, where he transferred in his junior year, majoring in political science and international relations and writing his thesis on Soviet nuclear disarmament. He dismisses in one sentence his first community organizing job — work he went on to do in Chicago — though a former supervisor remembers him as 'a star performer.'"

[snip]

"he [Obama] declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify even a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years.

'He doesn’t remember the names of a lot of people in his life,' said Ben LaBolt, a campaign spokesman."

Profile: Institute For Policy Studies (IPS)

IPS’s [Institute For Policy Studies] Washington, DC headquarters quickly became a resource center for national reporters and a place for KGB agents from the nearby Soviet embassy to convene and strategize. Cora Weiss headed one of the IPS's most successful forays -- into Riverside Church in Manhattan. She was invited there in 1978 by the Reverend William Sloane Coffin to run the church's Disarmament Program, which sought to consolidate Soviet nuclear superiority in Europe -- in the name of "peace." In 1982 Weiss helped organize the largest pro-disarmament demonstration ever held. Staged in New York City, the rally was attended by a coalition of communist organizations. During her decade-long tenure at Riverside, which became home to the National Council of Churches, Weiss regularly received Russian KGB agents, Sandinista friends, and Cuban intelligence agents. Weiss became infamous for her role in the psychological warfare conducted against U.S. prisoners of war held in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" during the Vietnam War.

The Liberation News Service, which is a news source for hundreds of "alternative" publications nationwide (with antiwar, Marxist-oriented perspectives), was founded in 1967 with IPS assistance."

Why Won’t Obama Talk About Columbia?
The years he won’t discuss may explain the Ayers tie he keeps lying about:

RE: Riverside Church, Communist Party USA, May 1, 2010!

Communist Led “Peace Movement” to Target US Military Budget

Guided by the Communist Party USA, the U.S. “peace movement” is entering a new phase.

The struggles against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will be de-emphasized, while focus will shift to a broad based campaign to cut U.S. military spending.

The Communists plan to exploit public concern over economic problems, to pressure the Obama administration to hugely cut back on defense spending, weapons systems and overseas commitments.

"[Communist Party USA vice chair, Judith] LeBlanc signals that the “peace movement’s” new direction will begin with a major campaign. Significantly May 1 [2010!], will be the kickoff date and New York’s far left Riverside Church will be the founding venue."

"There will be people from every continent here to participate in the non-governmental organization gatherings that will be going on, with an international conference happening at Riverside Church from April 30 to May 1 [communist "May Day"], and then marching on May 2."
--Judith LeBlanc, vice-chair Communist Party USA, 'national field organizer for Peace Action, the country’s largest grassroots peace organization with 100,000 members across the country', also co-founder of "United for Peace and Justice"

I know that I’m asking a STUPID QUESTION, but does Congress have a say in any of this, or is simply up the president to do it by decree, at least if the president is Democrat?

There are a few things Obama likes to cut. NASA,Defense,Neuclear Arms...Military, border patrol,Medicare....
Then he “redistributes the money to the “poor”
Mostly cronies via fake/failed simulus projects and “free” stuff for anyone willing to sell their souls for a few dollars.

This is not a surprise. His college thesis at Columbia was about nuclear disarmament.

Very doubtful Obama will do what is in America’s best interest. He must be defeated in the voting ahead.

In 1949, flag officers and civilians publicly threatened, after the destruction of USS United States, to quit over Truman's proposal to disestablish the Navy in favor of Air Force super-bombers carrying nuclear weapons, as aircraft carriers were by then seen as "obsolete." I understand how difficult it would be to quit a flag job for which you had worked your entire life, but have little respect for the current flags that go along to get along with Obama's clear desire to destroy the US military.

I personally do not believe Obamah would attack an Islamic state like Iran if it was to attack Israel.

Obamah bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.

Obamah supported the muslim brotherhood in taking over Libya and Egypt.

Too cowardly to defend S.Korea from N. Korea & China.

Too cowardly to defeat Syrian's Assad & Russia from revolutionaries.

Iran may be planning its own October Suprise, knowing their muslim bother's time is limited?

Who, me worry about nuclear arms cutting?

We have a ‘totally destructive’ person in the WH.
That worries me at the moment.

COME ON NOVEMBER!!!! Never wished my days away

After a first strike, what would we have left? One? Not that King Barack would use it anyway.
