Here Joe Cirincione, President of the Ploughshares Fund and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, applauds Obama’s commitment to the total destruction of the United States nuclear arsenal.
Cirincione also praises another leftist former GOP Senator, Dick Lugar, for his reprehensible role in the disarming of America.
The Obama Administration’s number one priority is the destruction of US defensive capability. If this is allowed to occur, the United States and indeed the entire West, will be at the mercy of the combined military might of Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, radical Islam and all of their growing army of allies.
Of course, all these sworn enemies of the United States would never use that overwhelming advantage to obliterate a disarmed America would they? And the Lion is about to lie down with the Lamb?
If Obama succeeds and America loses its military edge over its enemies, there is very little chance of recovery. A military rebuild would take many years with a healthy economy. How long might it take after Obama has wreaked four more years of economic havoc? Where is the infrastructure, the skill base?
When they finally have America just where they want her, will the rulers of Russia, China and Iran sit on their hands and allow the Unites States to slowly rebuild its military?
Are the tyrants of Moscow, Beijing and Tehran that stupid?
Or will they use this Obama-given opportunity to take the United States out of contention once and for all?
If you were a heavily armed anti-American dictator, with a large pool of young men you wanted to get rid of, an overcrowded country and a very comfortable deep underground bunker that could easily survive some minimal nuclear retaliation, what would you do?
This is THE issue that Americans should be most worried about.
Obama’s second term will damage the US economy and diminish American’s freedoms. But America can recover from all that. What Americans may not survive is the destruction of their military superiority. That will put America at the mercy of its numerous enemies. That will put millions of lives and the physical survival of the entire country at risk. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
To quote Shakespeare, from The Tempest:
“Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”
