Obama To Push For More Nuclear Disarmament In The Face Of Growing Nuclear Dangers

President Barack Obama is set to deliver his State of the Union Address tomorrow. In it, he’ll push for new stimulus spending, pay raises for federal employees (public sector unions) and a host of other programs including immigration reform and methods to address “climate change.” Also on the President’s agenda is a move to further reduce America’s nuclear arsenal.

This is a dangerous continuation of Obama’s irresponsible, perhaps reckless, agenda regarding our nuclear deterrence. Consider the events of the last four years and ask yourself whether or not the President is jeopardizing our national security.

President Ronald Reagan was fond of saying to the Russians, “trust, but verify.” President Reagan was referring to relations with the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It was meant to convey to the Russians that the U.S. believes you, but we’re going to make sure you’re telling the truth. It was the kind of hard nosed diplomacy that Reagan used to defeat the Russians.

Well, that’s all gone now. We won’t be verifying what the Russians are doing when it comes to their nuclear weapons, specifically the manufacturing of new intercontinental ballistic missiles.
