Posted on 08/24/2012 5:33:24 AM PDT by opentalk
Although President Obama's current defense cuts are so drastic that even Rep. Nancy Pelosi is scared they might cost Democrats more seats in the House, State Dept. advisers are reportedly encouraging further cuts and even the all-out elimination of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
A State Dept. report addressing this issue justifies the suggestion on the grounds that possessing nuclear weapons drives other nations to "acquisition and/or use of nuclear weapons."
In other words, as long as nations like the U.S., Israel, and Russia have nukes but rogue nations like Iran and North Korea don't Iran and North Korea will continually pursue them with a willingness to use them. Yet if we get rid of ours, they will stop the pursuit of theirs... and everybody can hug and get along, naturally.
Explaining away Iran's nuclear ambitions by saying they only want such weapons because we have them is childish and irrational.

Is anybody getting scared yet?
The USA will be disarmed by Obama’s Marxist/Muslim toadies by Jan. Should Obama and his cohorts lose, states may have to call out their National Guard troops during what could be a disastrous “lame duck” season. Would your governor do it?
If Obama is reelected you better learn how to speak Farsi.
That might be true in some cases. But does anybody think that getting rid of them will "drive" other nations to get rid of them?
And what is it worth, anyway? The genie cannot be put back into the bottle. If we (or anybody else) wanted one, it's a short haul from having none to having several. It's not like we have to do Manhattan 2.0.
I find it interesting that Pelosi is worried that defense cuts might cost them more seats in the house, nevermind the risk to the nation’s national defense/security. Real priorities their Nancy......real priorities.
Apparently, the State Department is still rather pink...even after all these years.
4 MORE YEARS, 4 MORE YEARS, 4 MORE YEARS!!!!!
Never mind all this - what about Romney’s religion and/or tax returns?
THIS is exactly the kind of thing that makes me shake my head in absolute WONDER at those who would rather see Obama win to teach the GOP a lesson.
We may have conventional weapons online that make typical nuclear weaponry a little dated. Remember a good rule of thumb is that we won’t know what the military has today until about 20 years from now. My friend who has been at Raytheon for 35 years said that although he can’t really talk about it - it’s really sci-fi stuff. Mind control, energy pulse, purely kinetic, V-Ray, - seriously “out there”
In the place of a nuclear defense,
the US State Dept suggests extermination
camps and crucifixion sites
for all non-Moslem Americans and their children
who manage to survive ObamaCARE.
How amazingly stupid. These people think that the rest of the world will behave well towards us if we just get rid of our darn nukes and then wonder loudly how somebody like Hitler came around and lead Germany.
I think we should experiment first. Get rid of all the guns that the police and government agencies carry and see what happens.
Good thinkin', Nance. Nuthin' like having your priorities straight...
Any recommendations on stock to buy that would cash in on the need to speak Russian or Chinese?
Jesus H. Christ!
We have got to get the communist morons out of government.
Life in Amerika since January 20, 2009 has been a non-stop nightmare.
I think I see a solution that would make everyone happy.
Millions of weapons and thousands of veterans, self-organized into myriad groups provide fertile ground for home-grown armies.
Economic failure (his name is Obama) is our true danger.
