Obama Wants To Take Away Our Biggest Gun – The Bomb

On Sunday, President Obama committed the United States to a long-term goal of ridding the world of nuclear weapons – something that will never happen – and claimed that the US would make the first move by downplaying our nuclear weapons.  If he really is so committed to leaving us without our big weapons, why does he not just get rid of them now?  Every other country will follow that move, right?  It only takes common sense to know that the world would like for America to no longer have these weapons, but they plan on keeping their nuclear weapons, especially terrorist nations.  As we saw with North Korea, they could care less what we do or say.

It is like the battle over guns and the second amendment.  If you take the guns away from all the good people, then only the bad people have guns.  The same will be true with nuclear weapons.

The President said yesterday at Prague’s historic Hradcany Square, “Today, I state clearly and with conviction America’s commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.  This goal will not be reached quickly, perhaps not in my lifetime. It will take patience and persistence.”  The European crowd that he has been pandering to for a week, cheered his statements.

Obama spelled out a broad three-part plan:

• Changing U.S. nuclear strategy and working with Russia to slash further their stockpiles of warheads.

• Working to control the spread of weapons, including creating an international fuel bank to let non-nuclear powers get materials needed for nuclear power without developing the capacity to create material for weapons, as is feared in Iran.

• Starting a new international effort to secure from terrorists all the materials needed for nuclear weapons.

The President stressed that the United States will “maintain a safe, secure and effective arsenal to deter any adversary” as long as nuclear weapons exist. But he pledged that the United States would “begin the work of reducing our arsenal.”  Just more empty rhetoric from an empty suit.  Supposedly, the KGB run country of Russia is going to join us in these efforts.  I certainly trust the Russian government.  Obama will also push for America to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

“After more than five decades of talks, it is time for the testing of nuclear weapons to finally be banned,” he said.  As I have said often, I feel safer already.

  1. F**k you are ignorant. Of course terrorists will still have weapons, of course nations like North Korea will attempt to maintain nuclear weapons…but it is not smart to continue to hold onto weapons that can obliterate life on our planet all at the cost of your egotism. This only causes more problems for us than it solves. Build strategic missile defense systems, build up conventional armaments, support our troops, but don’t build weapons that will have long lasting effects on our country and our world. Of course, we would not disarm immediately and absolutely as this is a delicate matter, which you clearly cannot grasp. Yes, the United States has many enemies, but it is mostly our fault as we consume 25% of the world’s goods while only maintaining about 5% of the world’s population. This means we consume five times more per person on average than the rest of the world for those of you who are not arithmetically inclined. Our enemies are spread far and wide, but if we can set an example of peace, this may give other countries and groups see that we do care about the rest of the world and not just ourselves. Do you honestly think that even if we were nuked, that our first response would be to nuke the culprit? This would only cause proliferation and escalation. If we do not begin a disarming now, we will only destroy ourselves in the future. Don’t be selfish. You need to pull your head out of your a55.

    • I’m ignorant and yet you are the one who starts and ends a comment with curse words. And then you have nothing more than the left wing talking points. We have enemies because it is our fault?! I thought consuming goods was good because it brings money to these nations when we import their products. And forget about all the aid we send to every country on the planet. They hate us for our freedom and our faith and because of who we are and nothing will ever change that. And not having the deterance of owning nuclear weapons will leave us wide open to be destroyed. You obviously are the ignorant one who has not studied history and who thinks laying down will get the world on our side. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and wake up!
