The Obama administration has announced
- an arms agreement with Russia, according to which we will no longer test, maintain, replenish, or expand our stockpile of nuclear weapons, and, moreover, cut them back by 20%;
- a policy of “no first use” of nuclear weapons, according to which we will not use nuclear weapons unless someone nukes us first, even if they launch devastating chemical or biological attacks; and
- a policy of removing ‘Islamic radicalism’, ‘jihad’, etc., from our national security documents.
Obama presses for a nuclear-free world as Iran gets closer and closer to nuclear capability. When nukes are outlawed, only outlaws will have nukes.
Johnny Fincioen writes (original in Dutch; my translation):
For more than 60 years, nuclear deterrence worked perfectly. New world wars were avoided. Opponents did not know whether or not the U.S. would use nuclear weapons to retaliate. The enemy did not know whether the U.S. would use nuclear weapons in a first strike to destroy underground nuclear facilities. Keeping your potential attacker in the dark about your plans has been the foundation of any winning defense strategy for as long as living beings have been swimming, crawling, walking, and flying on this planet. Uncertainty is the essence of deterrence. (Sun Tzu: The Art of War.)
As Gateway Pundit reminds us, we were warned:
“I’m the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it. Second, 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. And I will institute an independent “Defense Priorities Board” to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending. Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new 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 arsenals.”

As I’ve been saying, he’s on the other side. I’m sure there are other explanations, but it’s getting harder and harder to think of any.
