I don’t know where to even start to comment on this absurd document that came out of our State Dept. this past Tuesday. We need to get rid of our nukes, as well as our defense, and the world will find love. If I thought that Obama had lost his wheels in thinking that the Universe now operated differently since his arrival, – since it surely spins around him, then his whole bevy of leftist elites share his same delusion. Here is a hint Obama. The world has been at war since the beginning of time. The strong survive, the weak suffer and are succeeded. It is the history of nations. Our nation is not one bit different. We rise and we too shall fall. I prefer later rather than sooner. I will pick some of the highlights, but if one needs a reason to be alarmed more than they are, read the whole document, or at least the link to the full article at the Washington Free Beacon
Recall: “I don’t happen to agree with a missile defense system
By now almost everyone has heard Obama’s remarks to the Russians regarding “giving him space” until after his last election. A bit of a reminder of what he thinks of missile defense. Anyone still wondering what another four years of him will bring? Short and sweet. Maggie’s Notebook has a great post Bolton: Obama missile defense firebell in the night a sign of weakness
”I don’t happen to believe in missile Defense Systems”.
U.S.-Russia Mutual Assured Stability
A State Department advisory board report made public Tuesday shows that the Obama administration is studying cuts in U.S. strategic arsenals to “very low” levels and ultimately eliminating nuclear arms.
The advisory board, headed by former Defense Secretary William Perry, reflects themes promoted by liberal arms control and disarmament officials in the administration and calls for a new U.S. nuclear doctrine dubbed “mutual assured stability” based on better relations with Russia.
Below is an example of the logic and understanding of our relationship with Putin. Note the word “was”.
The U.S.-Russia relationship during the Cold War was characterized for more than forty years by suspicion and distrust on the part of both sides, with many specific incidents in history to justify these strongly held feelings. Indeed, the two political and economic systems were fundamentally incompatible. During the Cold War, the two countries existed as deadly adversaries, which left scars of mistrust and an undertow of negativism, especially in both national security establishments. In the intervening years, with the demise of Soviet communism, some modest progress has been made in developing trust, however by its nature this change will take many years. Indeed there remain many fundamental differences and conflicts in values and interests; however, some further reductions of nuclear arsenals do not require achieving full trust, total cooperation and complete alignment of all national interests.
As we strive to make progress in the U.S.-Russia relationship, with consideration of the desired end state, the following characteristics can serve as goals: More at Washington Free Beacon
