SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE
In his last days in office, President Obama reportedly wants to get the UN’s Security Council to endorse a ban on underground nuclear testing. It would be a two-fer for Mr. Obama.
First, he evidently hopes to encumber his successor from taking steps needed to modernize America’s deterrent. And second, he intends once again to undermine the Constitution with its requirement that the U.S. Senate advise and consent to treaties like the Comprehensive Test Ban.
But, the Senate voted to reject that treaty seventeen years ago – for good reason. And today’s Washington Free Beacon describes multi-billion dollar investments the Kremlin is making in preparing for nuclear war by both comprehensively upgrading Russia’s arsenal and the underground bunkers from which its use would be directed.
We need a national debate about how best to end our unilateral nuclear disarmament, not more of it.
Flushing $zillions of our money down hostile Islamist regimes as nuclear weapons show every sign of spreading throughout the Middle East could really throw the budget out of kilter. Fortunately the Manchurian Moonbat has found a place he doesn’t mind making cuts — our nuclear arsenal:
The Obama administration is weighing options for sharp new cuts to the U.S. nuclear force, including a reduction of up to 80 percent in the number of deployed weapons, The Associated Press has learned.
Even the most modest option now under consideration would be an historic and politically bold disarmament step in a presidential election year, although the plan is in line with President Barack Obama’s 2009 pledge to pursue the elimination of nuclear weapons.
That is, the elimination of our nuclear weapons. Our enemies will still have them.
We knew all along Obama hated this country. He is now methodically destroying it, as everyone who was paying attention knew in advance he would do.
Our fate when we can no longer deter our enemies.
