Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) sparred Tuesday night over her proposed no first use policy on nuclear weapons during the Democratic debate.
In defending the proposed policy, Warren argued for diplomatic and economic solutions to conflict, saying we should not be asking our military to take on jobs that do not have a military solution.
But Bullock opposed that proposal, saying, I dont want to turn around and say, Well, Detroit has to be gone before we would ever use that.
Warren is the lead sponsor of the Senate version of a bill that would make it U.S. policy not to use nuclear weapons first.
It has long been the policy of the United States that the country reserves the right to launch a preemptive nuclear strike.

This is why I don’t want to hear a word from these freak show events. I already know that they’re gonna give all the money away and sell us out. I’m withdrawing from the news for awhile.
Back in the real world, the President’s Emergency Satchel has been by every President’s side since 1963.
Yeah what BILL is gonna change that?
They’re all freaking insane!
Tell them to get out of Dodge first.
Rest of that video the gunslinger’s younger brother wants to challenge Matt for “drawing first,” considering it cowardly, and he gets a gun and trains with it. Then a barroom tough tries to egg the kid into a gunfight just for fun, and Matt steps in and stops it, and the kid sees the error of his ways, and relents.
No such options with nuclear weapons.
Uh... Detroit should be a freebie.
My governor is a jackass and should be out of the state of Montana FOREVER, just NOT in the white house!
He has NO qualificatiosn to run for president of the USA.
Should be renamed the “Nuke us, please!” policy.
On this subject, I don’t even believe we can take comfort in the knowledge that they’re probably lying. They do not have our best interests at heart.

We will continue our ban, we have not watched the fake news from ABCNNBCBS for about a decades. We stopped watching Faux in 2016 when MeAgain tried to lynch Candidate Trump in the Iowa debate. Then, we stopped watching even the local Faux after Trump was declared the election winner.
If more people with a working brain do what you did, the mediots and liberals will take a mortal blow. Thanks for posting your reality.

I think that Bill Clinton miss placed the football for awhile.
Putin has first-use powers with his weapons, so why shouldn’t we have that power with ours?
I saw some of Cavuto’s Coast to Coast show on FBN today. From what I can see, it TOWERS above the FOX offerings at that time.
The first thing Obama did in Office was halt all of our Nuclear Weapon R&D. Our Enemies didn’t play along.
"Nuclear weapons are a terrible thing, and no one should have them. Therefore, the USA will have them. And the USA alone. Any nation that tests a nuclear weapon -- even our great ally the UK -- will have its capitol city nuked within 24 hrs. This is how we intend to stop nuclear proliferation. So, let the message go out -- to the USSR, to China, to all nations: no one should seek to develop nuclear weapons, or they will face the consequences."
