Skip to comments.Obama's Plan For World Without Nuclear Weapons—Ours

The Obama Record: In pursuit of a world without nuclear weapons, the president finalizes plans to decimate our nuclear deterrent and reduce our warhead count beyond even treaty commitments.
President John F. Kennedy once said of those who would oppose us: "We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed." That was the longstanding reason for our nuclear deterrence strategy.
President Obama has decided that indeed we are going to tempt them with weakness. According to an Associated Press report on conversations with current and former administration officials, Obama is finalizing plans, perhaps to be released later this month, to cut the U.S. nuclear arsenal to between 1,000 and 1,100 warheads with the goal "in the longer term, (of) eliminating nuclear weapons."
This plan stems from a Nuclear Posture Review conducted by an administration committed to a world without nuclear weapons, particularly American ones, based on two fraudulent conclusions, one that Cold War weapons are no longer needed in a post-Cold War world, and the weapons, not the tyrants who would use them against us, are the real threat.
Pentagon planners were tasked to consider three force levels as part of the Nuclear Posture Review ordered by the president last August: a force of 1,000 to 1,100 warheads; a second scenario of 700 and 800 warheads; and the lowest level of 300 to 400 warheads.
Obama tasked the Pentagon with developing options that would eliminate as much as 80% of the deployed weapon levels set by his seriously defective "New Start" Treaty.

I was very surprised that New START did not generate more controversy. Ratified by the Senate in 2011, New START reduced deployed nuclear warheads by nearly 70% - from 5600 to 1600.
Hard to believe that in the 1960’s we had over 30,000.
The Pentagon needs to postpone their answer until after the election. Stall this idiot before he gets us all in a world war with nothing to fight it but good intentions.
He doesn’t give a damn about “a world without Nukes”, as long as he sees to it that America is neutered, he’ll be happy.
Correction to last post. What famous slugger stole home 10 times - putting him ahead of Lou Brock in that department? Babe Ruth.

Also, approximately 30 or so years ago the US signed a treaty with the Soviets to destroy all biological weapons. We faithfully complied and “verified” the Soviets compliance.
Later records show that they hid massive quantities of Bio weapons and continued to research and produce them in secret locations. Which is precisely what the Soviets and Chinese will do if we agree to eliminate or greatly reduce our nuclear weapons.
Even without reductions, their is a real danger that one of Obama’s minions could reveal to the Soviets the precise locations of our Trident subs allowing that whole leg of our triad to be destroyed, leaving the Russians with more than enough missiles to take out our remaining land based ICBMs with a small portion of their missiles. Leaving us totally defenseless with no means to retaliate. The fewer total warheads we have the more likely such a scenario is.
What is even more frightening is the idea we no longer have any real deterrence. Deterrence depends on a President willing to retaliate.
I am not convinced that Obama would retaliate after we were attacked with nuclear weapons. I can easily see him giving into Chinese or Soviet surrender demands on the basis of better Red than dead.

And don’t forget his intention to trample on the 2nd Amendment, because of the UN, leaving the population at the mercy of criminals.
Obama wants to 'tempt' with weakness... it'll be transmitted to Vladimir...
