Obama’s plan to disarm the US 1

Obama wants to disarm the United States and cripple its nuclear capacity.

The Obamatons of the mainstream media have failed to report one of the most chilling campaign promises thus far uttered by the presumptive Democrat nominee for president.

He made it before the Iowa caucus to a left-wing pacifist group that seeks to reallocate defense dollars to welfare programs. The lobbying group, Caucus for Priorities, was so impressed by Obama’s anti-military offering that it steered its 10,000 devotees his way.

In a 132-word videotaped pledge (still viewable on YouTube), Obama agreed to hollow out the U.S. military by slashing both conventional and nuclear weapons.

The scope of his planned defense cuts, combined with his angry tone, is breathtaking. He sounds as if the military is the enemy, not the bad guys it’s fighting. Here is a transcript:

"I’m the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning; and as president, I will end it.

"Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems.

"I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the Quadrennial Review is not used to justify unnecessary defense spending.

"Third, I will set a goal for a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenal." 

Amazing. How could anyone vote for a man who wants to stop missile defense research, put an end to the programs that give our military an edge over our enemies, and cut the nuclear arsenal which makes the United States the most powerful nation in the world?

    This is pretty bad. we cannot have our military being slowed down. We need our military for defense. Regardless, we still need to continue development of weapon systems and we still need our nuclear arsenal. Notice how the Cold War period was the most peaceful time in Europe? That’s because both sides didn’t want to get nuked to hell. MAD does work.
