The Balance of Power

Barack Obama seems willing to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons, while eliminating American missile defense plans and seeking to eliminate the American nuclear arsenal:

“…I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems….

“Third, I will set a goal for a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenal.”

Meanwhile, the Bush administration is giving Saudi Arabia nuclear technology. What’s wrong with this picture?
