Obama's "Ban the Bomb Bluster"
"No Bomb Obama"
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
One thing about the Hippie generation, they are relentless. Even after the air headed-ness of their ideas has been exposed for decades they continue to press on, and on, and on, ad infinitum.
we have a President of the US actually making a fool of himself all
over the globe, even today, pressing forward the "Ban the Bomb" agenda
of the 1960's "flower children."
It is so close to ridiculous that it is no longer funny.
Now known in some parts of the world as "No Bomb Obama,"
he has most recently been chasing Russia's Vladimir Putin around trying
to demonstrate just how "flexible" he (Obama) can be ... now that he
has been reelected, and all.
You may recall that the UN Security
Council, back in September of 2009, unanimously approved a US-drafted,
Obama-authored resolution in New York committing to work towards a world
without nuclear weapons. I am still embarrassed by that.
the "A" bomb has never really made a whole lot of sense to me since it
is not the ultimate weapon anymore, if it ever was.
it a moment. Even in the closing days of the Second World War, as the
US was bombing the living daylights out of Japan, the Allies were
inflicting far more damage and killing far more of the enemy's people
with conventional bombs, especially those "fire bombs" (The incendiary
bombs we dropped on Japan's cities.) Earlier, in Germany, the city of
Dresden became a maelstrom of death and destruction by high explosive
and incendiary bombs. It became a literal "hurricane of fire" -- and
No. The Nuclear Free World mantra is just another of
those warm and fuzzy "sayings" or philosophies put forth by the
political left, the world over, to press forward their march to Utopia,
an imaginary place considered to be perfect or ideal, AND the mythical
land of Nirvana, a place of complete bliss and delight and peace.
No matter that it is all Bovine Scatology. It is their "pipe" dream and they insist on maintaining it. Problem is -- they also insist on aggravating the real world half to death with their perpetual rantings about it.
Back in 2009 Obama is reported to have stated: "We
harbor no illusions about the difficulty of bringing about a world
without nuclear weapons. We know there are plenty of cynics, and that
there will be setbacks to prove their point. But there will also be days
like today that push us forward - days that tell a different story. It
is the story of a world that understands that no difference or division
is worth destroying all that we have built and all that we love." SOURCE: http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2009-09-24/us/28063316_1_nuclear-security-summit-nuclear-weapons-resolution
is insistent upon reducing America's nuclear arsenal as an example to
the remainder of the nuclear club nations of the world in the HOPE
they will be converted into true believers with those cute little
daises protruding from the barrels of their soldier's AK-47's.
Obama wants to stop the proliferation of nuclear bombs, may we suggest
that he get off the dime and bomb the dickens out of Iran's nuclear
facilities -- post haste. We've fiddled around with the Persians for far longer than was necessary -- OR prudent.
Middle Eastern regional war Obama claims to be so frightened of
igniting with a raid on Iran's nuclear bomb making plant(s) is already
in the making in a place called Syria. Now that he has introduced -- OVERTLY
-- American assistance to the rebels there, that excuse is gone,
especially when one considers Iran's introduction of some 4,000 of their
troops into the Syrian civil war on the side of the Syrian tyrant
Assad. That figure does not take into account the thousands of irregular Iranian troops fighting for Assad, as well.
why wait any longer to strike Iran? Is Obama setting the US up to lose
a fourth war in the Middle East? (Count 'em: Iraq, Afghanistan,
Syria, and possibly Iran)
Seems to me, Obama's campaign to
reduce America's nuclear arsenal is just another avenue he is taking to
reduce America's standing in the world and lay our necks bare to the
blades of our enemies.
