The issue isn’t what’s happening in Syria at the moment. It isn’t cutting spending. The issue is nuclear weapons. Too many members of Congress favor the expansion of America’s nuclear weapons, and don’t care to even try to control the spread of nuclear weapons out of Russia.
When you look at this photograph of a U.S. military bulldozer, do you presume that it’s being used to cover up evidence of secret nuclear weapons tests?
One ninth of America’s nuclear weapons went offline last week. Why don’t we make that condition permanent?
Obama wants sharper reductions. He told the Pentagon to come back to him with a new nuclear posture review that meets his goals through more dramatic reductions and a reconfiguration of American nuclear strategy.
The question, Which country would be insane enough to actually use a nuclear weapon?. The answer to that question was, however, made quite clear by the results.
If we here in the USA are freaking out about the idea of North Korea or Iran having just a handful of nuclear weapons, then we cannot reasonably expect the world to be impressed with an agreement to reduce our nuclear arsenal to 1,500, plus a whole lot of spares in the atomic closet.
Why is the Obama Administration cutting off access for scientists to data gathered by military satellites that watch for nuclear weapons tests?
Yes, North Korea has nuclear weapons. However, there’s no clear reason to think that North Korea has any plans to use its nuclear weapons and missile technology for anything other than Saddam-Hussein-style defensive posturing.
We must not go to war. For one thing, we can’t go to war. Thanks to Barack Obama’s decision to keep Americans in Iraq with a slow withdrawal, and to add new American soldiers to the fighting in Afghanistan, we don’t have the sufficient military force for an invasion and occupation of North Korea.
The nuclear deterrent seems not to have worked. The size of our military seems not to have protected us. If we want an effective defense, why can’t it be small and strategic, instead of big and blind?
Our government has huge numbers of nuclear bombs, each one of which could destroy an entire city all on its own, but in keeping those bombs ready to explode, it feels the need to get an ambulance, just in case.
