Skip to comments.Obama administration embraces major new cut in nuclear weapons

WASHINGTON -- Senior Obama administration officials have agreed that the number of nuclear warheads the U.S. military deploys could be cut by at least a third without harming national security, according to those involved in the deliberations.
Such a reduction would open the door to billions of dollars in military savings, which might ease the federal budget deficit. It also would improve prospects for a new arms deal with Russia before President Barack Obama leaves office, those involved said, but its likely to draw fire from conservatives, if previous debate on the issue is any guide.

What difference does it make?"
I’m sure all these “savings” won’t fund the deficit for more than half a day. Obama thinks that we have no need of nuclear weapons.
I say No, No, No!
Billions in savings that could ease the budget deficit. First, you’ve got to have a budget. Second, anyone really believe they won’t just part themselves on the back for their “savings” then go blow that much or more on some dumb-a##ed big government socialist program?
Nice they consulted WITH EACH OTHER ;)
Obama Administration = Utter FOOLS
If anyone thinks that voluntarily cutting our Nukes will impress the Russians to cut theirs they are a damned fool.
All the predictions in the movie “2016” are coming true
I wonder how many of theirs still work and would actually launch on command. Given the degraded condition of their military can their rockets be in any better shape?
Good grief. THis man is making Jimmy Carter seem competent in comparison.
That’s exactly what they will do — all the while the wolves will gather on the edge of light and wait for the flames to shutter...then pounce.
Every morning I ask myself - how did we get to this point in the US...and why would anyone want to take us here — it leads only to death and destruction...very depressing to see a vibrant nation being striped while everyone stares at pretty novelties....
"The results of the internal review havent been announced, but theyre reflected in a proposed classified directive prepared for Obamas signature that details how U.S. nuclear weapons should be targeted against potential foes, according to four people with direct knowledge of the documents content. The sources, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because they werent authorized to talk to a reporter about the review, described the president as fully on board, but said he hasnt signed the document."
My head just exploded.
I seriously don't know why I follow the news, the insufferable stupidity of this administration and the journalists who propagandize for them is driving me to an early grave.
These marxists will not stop until the USA is defenseless. Why don’t we just vote them out? That ought to work, right? It’s worked so well in the past.
“details how U.S. nuclear weapons should be targeted against potential foes”
I.e. they’re changing the targeting.
Unilateral disarmament is a key in Obama’s planned destruction of America and her role in the world.
Obama was reelected so now he has the “flexibility” he was talking about. Vlad got the message and now Obama is delivering. We can use the savings to fund Obamacare.
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.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
Remember Ubama's Friendship with the Communist Billy Ayers, which was the only thing I ever needed to know about his world view, Ubama is following the plan.
They're not stupid. This is the plan. Their hatred of the US is all consuming and its destruction will be seen by them (if they live) as justice for an aggrieved world.
These predictions will one day come true, pray they dont come true here,
“The king of Babylon hath heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail.” Jeremiah 50:43
“One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end, And that the passages are stopped, and the reeds they have burned with fire, and the men of war are affrighted. For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; The daughter of Babylon is like a threshingfloor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come.” Jeremiah 51:31-33
