Nuclear Posturing, Obama-Style – Opinion – PatriotPost.US

Mr. Krauthammer once again zeroes right in on the essence of the topic. I’ve been around long enough to have watched our country go through some difficult and scary situations where nuclear armament lurked in the background. From my experience, a position of strength is the only place where our country wants to be at this point. Years ago, nutty countries like Iran, Pakistan, Syria and North Korea didn’t have access to nuclear weapons… the nuclear game was really played by only two countries, the USSR and the United States. China eventually developed a nuclear capability, but their involvement in strategic nuclear arms negotiations wasn’t a serious matter. The Chinese were recognized as having the weapons, but they weren’t considered to be serious players in the game.

Anyway, now we have nuts like Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, ex-Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. They possess nuclear technology and, supposedly, nuclear arms. These nuts are also unknown quantities. They’ve proven that they’re not interested in negotiating about nuclear arms control. They’re just plain dangerous people.

President Obama should scrap his mamby-pamby approach to nuclear arms control and follow the example of one of his predecessors… President Ronald Reagan. I believe our country is in greater danger from the possibility of a nuclear attack than it has ever been. Where we have focused our attention on missile deterrence, we now have the added concern of attacks from within our own borders by terrorists who could smuggle small nuclear weapons into America. Only from a position of strength followed up by no-nonsense communication to the rest of the world can we hope to ensure our future safety.
