Bloviating Zeppelin: Have We Now Lost The Will To National Self Defense?

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Have We Now Lost The Will To National Self Defense?


From the New York Times:

WASHINGTON — President Obama said Monday that he was revamping American nuclear strategy to substantially narrow the conditions under which the United States would use nuclear weapons, even in self defense [My emphasis - BZ].

Discussing his approach to nuclear security the day before formally releasing his new strategy, Mr. Obama described his policy as part of a broader effort to edge the world toward making nuclear weapons obsolete, and to create incentives for countries to give up any nuclear ambitions. To set an example, the new strategy renounces the development of any new nuclear weapons, overruling the initial position of his own defense secretary.

He (Obama) dodged when asked whether he shared Israel’s view that a “nuclear capable” Iran was as dangerous as one that actually possessed weapons.

And oddly enough, this comes on the heels of an announcement that Chavez in Venezuela has decided that it is time for him to become a nuclear power -- to be aided and abetted by Putin's Russia.

North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, -- wanting nuclear weapons now.

Russia, China -- in possession of nuclear weapons and now Wild Cards in the political nuclear landscape.

Mr Obaka still thinks that if we sit down at a table and pour ourselves a nice tea, we can work anything out.

His policy indicates that, any non-nuclear power will not be the recipient of our nukes no matter their attack on us in immediacy, be it in chemical, biological, digital or dirty nuclear in nature.

I literally question the sanity of our so-called president.

Is he so daft and thick as to not realize the True Evil exists in this world? That there is no such thing as American Exceptionalism?

Why is it that we would purposely take any responsive option off the table?

We are in the midst of a defeatist coup d'etat in Amerika.

BZ,
I never trusted Obama from early on in his quest for coronation. But his comments about the Cambridge Police set me off, as I'm sure they did you. I don't have a lot of respect for any cop who attended that dog and pony show at the beer summit. What a POS!

They would have had to have ordered me to go and then when I refused I would like to have seen the hearing on that one. Obama is so naive that it sickens me. I wish I could just blow it off, but he's jeopardizing us with the Carterization of American policy.

BZ, I swear, sometimes I can't take a shred of more awful news like this.......
I guess you can only care about defending a nation if you LIKE or RESPECT that nation...hence, our biggest problem to date with this newest president to date.

LOT: but that was only a minimal blip on the screen;

And yes: he IS jeopardizing our entire nation. It IS that serious.

Z: it's frequently overwhelming, is it not? And then, of course, that's where YOU come in!

YOU must continue on your path towards revelations now and in the future. YOU must continue on the path that Mr Z would want.

Can you just sit aside and turn over this nation to someone who deserves LESS than NOTHING??

It is THAT serious!

And I KNOW that you CANNOT!

I am going to say this in the nicest way I possibly can, and let me clarify BEFORE anyone gets the wrong idea, THIS IS NOT A THREAT.

If this nation doesn't get rid of Barack Hussein Obama, and I mean soon, VERY soon, there's not going to be an America left!

His ideas of what Amerika should be don't jive with OUR ideas of America!

His understanding of leadership DOES jive with the ideas, a compilation of ideas from people like Lenin, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Chavez, Castro and any other 2-bit third world thug turned dictator.

A dictator has emerged and the Independents, Dems and others were sitting on their duffs not believing the right's assessment of Obama's true Ideology. They were asleep at the wheel and we got taken.

THAT SAID, I do believe we have learned the hard way and we will vote these thugs out. We aren't sitting on our duffs anymore.
But let's hope we have no nuke/bio attacks on our land and/or a total economic collapse before the 2012 election.

He thinks that America is the bad guy and needs to take what it's got coming. We need to render him powerless as quickly as possible.

Shop, I think you're actually right. I believe he thinks America "has a lot of things coming" and that knocking it down a peg or three will "teach an historical lesson" and will, simultaneously, prove him right AND allow him to "set the proper course" of humility for the US.

Respect? Obaka swore to make us more respected in the world? Do YOU, dear readers, think Amerika is MORE respected in the world this day?

Perhaps even worse, Obaka's edict stops any future development of weapons of an offensive or even a defensive nature.

And, of course, because of this, you know that China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea will themselves completely STOP any further nuclear weapons development themselves, following our lead --

-- won't they?

Yes, Mr Obaka IS that stupid.

And that DANGEROUS to our country.

What will he do if something happens to us taxpayers who need to pay taxes for the rest of our natural life and our kids' and grandkids'lives, too, to pay for all his spending?

BZ, both Obama and Gates said that if we are hit with chemical or biological attacks we will attack with devastating "conventional" retaliation.

What makes him think our "conventional" bombs will still be capable of doing anything after we are hit. These people are idiots.

As you adroitly point out, isn't this a very odd time to tell the world, if you hit us, we'll hit you back with our second best weapons.?

This is the U.N.'s plan - to disarm the world, and Obama thinks he will be the leader in doing so.

Maggie: the largest "conventional" weapon in our inventory is the BLU-82, a huge bomb kicked out the back of a C-130. There aren't more than, as my sources tell me, two of these bombs available now.

This guy is simply beyond me. I have no idea where he's coming from, if but from another country. He advocates NOT for his OWN country but for those of dictators and. . .

I just have to stop here. It's just not worth it tonight.

I have to get SOME sleep.

It's enough to make you cry.

The time to do so, however, is over. Now is the time to get active.

Find the Tea Party gathering in your area and go.

Force the lame stream media to admit that we are not racists. We are Americans and we are voters and we are serious.

The Silent Majority cannot afford to be silent any longer.

And don't forget Syria. Never signed the CWC, is suspected of violating the Bioweapons Convention, and were caught in bed with NoKo by Israel for nuclear research. They also have long range missile tech they share with Iran.

Plus Syria makes such a lovely launching pad to reach out into central Europe. And if a little nuclear blackmail is in the offing, well, just what would the US do? Probably nothing and vote 'Present'.
