Obama to call for nuclear-free world

President Barack Obama will call for the elimination of all nuclear weapons across the globe, in remarks on Sunday he hopes will lend credibility to his message in atomic disputes with Iran and North Korea.

Visiting Prague during an eight-day visit to Europe, Obama plans to deliver what his aides have billed as a major speech on weapons proliferation.

Obama, who is making his debut on the world stage, said in Strasbourg, France on Friday that he would lay out an agenda to secure the world's loose nuclear materials and halt the spread of illicit weapons.

He added that he wanted to offer an agenda "to seek the goal of a world without nuclear weapons."

"Even with the Cold War over, the spread of nuclear weapons or the theft of nuclear material could lead to the extermination of any city on the planet," Obama said.

Actually, it’s the liberal utopian world few .. “can’t we all just get along” mantra.

Well .. on 9/11 - Islam destroyed that mantra.

I am sure he will make sure the United States will lead the way by standing down and destroying its entre nuclear arsenal.The budget for its maintenance has already been cut severely, a dangerous thing to do.

Obama's care for the country is completely submereged in his Utopian ideology.He will have us at war if he serves more than one term.

Just another reason to hate this marxist SOB. Dumping our nukes and the Russians and Chinese will keep theirs. What a guy, right? What a CIC we have! Why are we not impeaching this parody of a President? What is wrong with the Republican party that they let every thing he says just slide along like it is greased? Down with Steele, down with the RNC, let’s form a new party and hope it isn’t too late to save America!

For those in Rio Linda

Obama means:

world without nuclear weapons = united states surrenders its nukes but like the 1970’s everyone else can lie and keep theirs.

illicit weapons = abolish the second amendment. (overlords decide who is allowed to be armed and only those that protect the overlords are allowed to be armed.)

Ya see Camelot noir is still in effect, it will be very interesting to see the American peoples response to his royal fraudulence when his no tax hike massive tax increase hits every home in America or when the next attack leaves dead Americans in the street because of his arrogant disdain for this country and it’s people.

He can “call” all he wants. But if he holds to Demonrat standards, he’ll make some unilateral “gesture”, destroying some of our nukes or delivery systems, in hopes that the Bad Guys in the world will reciprocate..which they won’t.

This whole "I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke" foreign policy is going to get us all killed.

I think for now, "I'd like to buy the world some coke" is more apt, sadly.

Sorry, you’re quote was so cool I had to repeat it. With Obama’s history with the nose candy, it was right on.

This “agenda” is the political equivalent of a beauty pageant contestant saying “I want world peace.”

That is, it sounds lovely, but it’s never going to happen.

“By committing his administration to broad goals, new international initiatives, and specific short-term steps by the U.S. itself, administration officials hope it will give Obama greater credibility in seeking international support for pressuring North Korea and Iran to abandon their nuclear activities.”

Saying this right after N Korea launched the missile despite of warning from everyone shows Obama is either a complete fool, or he is doing everything to disarm the US unilaterally and put us at the mercy of our enemies seeking our complete distruction.

Do you think the evil tyrants of the world, Mr. President, are suddenly going to give trying to develop nuclear weapons? Obama is fast becoming the biggest dunce to have ever held the office. Jimmy Carter may look like a good President by comparison.

Does Herr Hussein not realize that a nuclear-free world would put the US at a GREAT comparative disadvantage, vs. our current position?

Question here - how does he plan to make that happen? The world leaders are not caught up in Obamamania, they are interested in their own agenda.

Ideally, the world would be free of nuclear weapons. Ideally it would be free of lies, deceit, aggression and treachery too.

Realistically, the world will never be free of lies, deceit aggression or treachery, and therefore the USA must retain a nuclear arsenal.
