Entertaining to hear Newt Gingrich, of all people, state that when it comes to a nuclear weapons policy, Obama is living in a fantasy and that he is potentially the most dangerous president ever. Meanwhile Iran is laughing at us. I freakin’ hate being right sometimes.
Do I think that many hostile, terrorist filled nations are just salivating while they wait for Americans to do something unbelievably stupid and downright moronic as electing Barack Obama? OH YEAH!
I would be a fool to vote for Barack Obama because I believe he is WEAK AND SPINELESS and will allow our country to be overrun by the very same assholes that bombed us 7 years ago because he will blink when he should have stood tall.
The pResident blinked with the Somali pirates; what happens with I’m-A-Dinner-Jacket?
And now, the spineless-resident-in-chief lays down the law.
WASHINGTON — President Obama said Monday that he was revamping American nuclear strategy to substantially narrow the conditions under which the United States would use nuclear weapons.
But the president said in an interview that he was carving out an exception for “outliers like Iran and North Korea” that have violated or renounced the main treaty to halt nuclear proliferation.
Discussing his approach to nuclear security the day before formally releasing his new strategy, Mr. Obama described his policy as part of a broader effort to edge the world toward making nuclear weapons obsolete, and to create incentives for countries to give up any nuclear ambitions. To set an example, the new strategy renounces the development of any new nuclear weapons, overruling the initial position of his own defense secretary.
It eliminates much of the ambiguity that has deliberately existed in American nuclear policy since the opening days of the cold war. For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons or launched a crippling cyberattack.
