Biden on Nukes

Recently Vice President Biden with the full blessing of President Obama indicated the administration would push ahead with the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. A treaty that was rejected by the Senate many years ago. Those on the left have long fought for a treaty such as this as a first step on the road to total nuclear disarmament on our part. The left has been opposed to nuclear weapons since their development and would like to see them eliminated world wide. No one likes these weapons and would like to see them gone. That being said there is no fool proof method for doing this. At this point in time we can't even be sure if a small nation like Iran has nukes or is close to getting them. It is utter foolishness to believe we can accomplish the destruction and dismantling of all nuclear weapons on a world wide scale and be completely sure none are left in undisclosed hiding places.

Imagine the United State without a single nuke. What would we do at some future time when threatened by some rogue third world power which has secretly developed nuclear weapons and threatens us here at home or in some distance part of the world, knowing that we cannot retaliate in kind to an attack on us. Would we be forced to borrow some nukes from Israel or perhaps Pakistan! Disarming is out of the question and those who would put such a thing on the table for international discussion are living in an Utopian dream world that is not at all reflective of the real world we must live in.

Biden seeks test ban, end to all U.S. nukes

The Obama administration will move ahead with Senate ratification of a treaty banning nuclear tests that was voted down by Republicans more than a decade ago, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. said Thursday.

In a speech setting out the administration's arms-control agenda, Mr. Biden also said the United States will continue to pursue President Obama's call for the elimination of all U.S. nuclear arms, but defended spending $7 billion in the coming year to repair an aging arsenal.

The administration is close to reaching a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia, and is nearing completion of a review of U.S. nuclear weapons forces, Mr. Biden said at the National Defense University.

"Our agenda is based on a clear-eyed assessment of our national interest," Mr. Biden said. "We have long relied on nuclear weapons to deter potential adversaries. Now, as our technology improves, we are developing non-nuclear ways to accomplish that same objective."

Non-nuclear weapons development includes the administration's plan for an "adaptive" missile-defense shield and conventional warheads "with worldwide reach," he said.

"With these modern capabilities, even with deep nuclear reductions, we will remain undeniably strong," Mr. Biden said.

On ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, known as the CTBT, Mr. Biden said that gaining Senate approval for the pact is part of the administration's efforts to limit the spread of weapons of mass destruction. Read more at Washington Times

The only country this will hurt is the US. The basic duty of government is to protect the people, yet they keep tearing down our ability to do that.

Right Truth

Gee can't we all just get along?
Lets just sit around the camp fire toasting marshmellows and singing "Koom-Ba-Ya"...

Are these people really that f**king stupid? If they don't want the United States of America to survive, why don't they just say that they want to live under Communism or worse yet Sharia law...

The only way I would get rid of our nukes would be to fire a couple dozen towards Iran...

Obama, Biden et al would rather roll over and surrender everything we are, everything we have and everything we hope to attain...

Imagine the United State without a single nuke.

Ye gods! Perish the thought!

Yet, that is exactly the road which this administration wants to lead us down.

The BHO administration seeks to remove the United States from world-power status.

One country has already unilaterally given up and surrendered its arsenal of nuclear weapons; that country was South Africa, before handing over its administration to the saintly Nelson Mandela.

My countrys defences (UK) have been severely depleted by 13 years of Socialist govenment under T.Blair and G.Brown, as a direct result our citizens in the Falkland Islands are under renenewed threat by the sub-democratic Republic of Argentina seeking to annul their last defeat at our hands. Given that our Air force is obsolete, our Navy run down and Army distracted in Afghanistan, it may well be that only the threat of nukes might keep the Argies on the leash.

We, as a country should ban Biden and Obama before they completely wreck our country and leave us defenseless. This is so stupid I am at a loss for words. That does not happen very often. So we will
continue to reduce our stockpile while the Islamic world and others will try to get nukes at all costs.

Perhaps we should use a bunch and reduce our enemies to dust and vapor. Then we can 'talk' about this, but only talk. Morons!

Mr Pink Eyes said...

I suppose the thinking here is that if we show we are serious about dissarming ourselves of nuclear weapons that other countries will follow. This is part of Obama's plan to show the world that we are a kinder, gentler nation. But all this does is show that we are weak. Nobody is going to follow us if we look weak. This is a joke!

Imagine the United State without a single nuke. ..thats precisely what the terrorist sympathizer in our WH wants my friend...!!!

Imagine the United State without a single nuke. What would we do at some future time when threatened by some rogue third world power.

Why, our pResident would bow and offer, in the least, amnesty, particularly if the person he was confronting fit the profile of a jihadist bomber.

It's part of lefties dream to disarm America and dent your ability to intervene and stand against evil. The stupid lefties might think that once America gives up her guns the rest of the world will follow, but the nasty one know fully well what will happen afterwards and that's what they want.

Biden is such a effing moron it's not funny, just watch, even as Iran acquires nukes, his shit-for-brains will be pushing to give up your nukes. He belongs in an asylum if you ask me.

Teresa said...

Utopian Dream world- You got that right!

To even think of disarming our nukes now is utterly alarming and unconscionable at a time when Iran is dangerously close to attaining nuclear capabilities.
Freaking morons.

Without a strong America, no free country will remain free. November 2nd, 2010 will either be a day that lives in infamy...or hopefully not. So much is at stake.
