Hey nebka, that is one opinion but here is another;Nuclear weapons cuts will make the United States safer
By Kingston Reif | 6 March 2013
Nuclear arms control is back in the news. After paying little public attention to the issue over the long course of his reelection campaign, President Obama said in his February State of the Union address that the United States "will engage Russia to seek further reductions in our nuclear arsenals." A recent report by the Center for Public Integrity revealed that senior Obama administration officials believe the United States can reduce its arsenal of deployed strategic warheads to between 1,000 and 1,100 without harming national security..........
-- such as the development of a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Verifiable limits on reserve warheads and nonstrategic arms would further enhance stability by addressing Russia's large stockpile of such weapons and ensuring that nuclear warheads are actually eliminated as opposed to merely placed in storage.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
Now, we have Iran on the edge of deploying their nukes as is North Korea and you think that we can reduce ours and we will be safer? Yes, you and Obama believe that but there are many who think you are foolish.
In the Mid-1930's when German, Italy and Japan were building up their militaries, FDR has his thumb up his azz. And on Dec. 7, 1941 Japan caught us unprepared for war. Japan thought they could bloody our nose and then we would seek peace, but they were wrong. But until we rebuilt our military, we got our azz kicked for about six months. We can not afford to do that in the nuclear age as the next war maybe LOST in 72 hours!
You see, even the Romans two thousand years ago knew that strong military deterred war. Sure, it might not happen next year or the year after, and it may not happen before Obama leaves office, but sooner or later we will pay for not maintaining a DETERRENT!
