In the wake of the news about the capture of Times Square Islamic terrorist Faisal Shahzad, another important story from yesterday is going largely by the wayside: Barack Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s deliberate and boneheaded disclosure of the number of nuclear warheads to the world.
Although experts guessed the number of nukes we have and were fairly close to the number, no-one ever knew for sure. And it was a guarded national security secret, for obvious reasons. But no longer, now that ObamaClinton decided to spill the beans at the United Nations at the start of a conference to review the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty.
So, why on earth did BarackHillary give this secret away? Well, they have this stupid notion that if we disclose the reduced number (far too reduced, frankly) of warheads we have now, we’ll convince China and Iran to be more open and reduce theirs, too.
Hilarious. A crack-induced fantasy, indeed. That’s exactly what you wanna do in a time of war (or peace): tell your enemies the size of your arsenal, so they can better plan how to beat your ass.
Yup, I’m sure that because we told the world we now only have 5,113 nuclear warheads, down from 31,255 that we had during Vietnam, that Ahmadinejad made an immediate call to his fellow Ayatollah-backed minions and demanded they stop or reduce his nuclear development.
Uh-huh. Right. And I’m sure the Chi-Coms did the same thing.
Stupid, stupid, stupid. The Muslims AND the Chi-Coms are laughing As they should be. In fact, Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has already smartly seized on this by demanding the U.S. submit to verification of the number of warheads. That was predictable. Once you go down the slippery slope of moral equivalency, you keep sliding. And there’s no end.
America’s national security (or, rather, the ever-declining state of it) continues to be a huge joke.
Maybe these people are on drugs.
