Here’s another fine example of just how vapid Dem politicians can be. Maybe he can hook up with despots like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and discuss all of his ideas on unilateral disarmament.
The Obama administration will move ahead with Senate ratification of a treaty banning nuclear tests that was voted down by Republicans more than a decade ago, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. said Thursday.
In a speech setting out the administration’s arms-control agenda, Mr. Biden also said the United States will continue to pursue Obama’s call for the elimination of all U.S. nuclear arms, but defended spending $7 billion in the coming year to repair an aging arsenal.
The administration is close to reaching a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia, and is nearing completion of a review of U.S. nuclear weapons forces, Mr. Biden said at the National Defense University.
“Our agenda is based on a clear-eyed assessment of our national interest,” Mr. Biden said. “We have long relied on nuclear weapons to deter potential adversaries. Now, as our technology improves, we are developing non-nuclear ways to accomplish that same objective.”
……”With these modern capabilities, even with deep nuclear reductions, we will remain undeniably strong,” Mr. Biden said.
That’s right, Joe. Maybe we’ll just relinquish our Superpower status and give that honor to the Europeans, since they’re so morally and socially superior to us American neanderthals.
The apology tours by President Milksop haven’t done enough to make us into a laughing-stock with the Chinese, Russians, and North Koreans. If we only adopt a kumbaya policy, they’ll stop hating and attacking us.
We ‘gave peace a chance’. We got 9/11.
In 1999, the Republicans voted down the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, (CTBT), for a damned good reason. Then, as now, the unilateral stoppage of testing and improvement of our arsenal is just plain fucking stupid. Name one Islamofascist or Communist country that will follow suit. Nuclear weapons are an essential part of deterrence, especially in a world with a nuclear North Korea and Iran.
Of course, the dutiful lefwingnut MSM will back up this Neville Chamberlain diplomacy shit, without question.
Biden is the quintessential reason why Democrats cannot be trusted with national security and the defense of this country.
When the Republicans take back the Senate and Congress this year, they need to add the abolition of this feckless treaty to their list.
