At the moment, we have the promises made by Obama that his insurance faux paux would benefit the American people. So much for that. Only a few months ago ...
I had just finished reading a Newsmax article titled,“Did Obama Lie?” This article stated that Obama wanted to reduce the United States Nuclear Arms to 1,000; and that “Specialists on nuclear deterrence say further cuts beyond the 1,550 deployed warheads mandated by the 2010 New START arms treaty could undermine the United States’ ability to deter nuclear powers like Russia and China, who have significant modernization programs for their nuclear arsenals underway.”
This article also stated that,“Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney said the administration is seeking to unilaterally disarm U.S. nuclear forces, something that is “the most dangerous thing I have ever seen an American president attempt to do.”
Please don’t misunderstand me, I wish that no country had ever established nuclear warheads anywhere in the world. The fact is, they have. By many countries including Pakistan, North Korea and China (who’ve made their intense contempt for the United States no secret)!
I fail to understand why in the world our president would want to weaken our country’s nuclear strength, when doing so very clearly sets our country up to be annihilated by one (or more) of our foreign enemies.
Does this translate to a president having the United States’ best interest at heart? Am I the only person who reads decisions being made by our president as destructive to our beloved USA?
With all of the recent publicity about the harmful (sometimes deadly) effects of bullying, I shudder to think that the majority of US citizens would turn-a-deaf-ear to being bullied, themselves! What on earth has happened to the backbone of this country?
