Symbol of surrender? 7

This undated handout photo provided by the National Nuclear Security Administration shows the United States’ last B53 nuclear bomb. The 10,000-pound bomb is scheduled to be dismantled Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011 at the Pantex Plant just outside Amarillo, Texas. It’s a milestone in President Barack Obama’s efforts to reduce the number of nuclear weapons and their role in the U.S. (AP Photo/National Nuclear Security Administration)

Yesterday the deed was done – more about it here.

The last of the nation’s most powerful nuclear bombs – a weapon hundreds of times stronger than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima – is being disassembled nearly half a century after it was put into service at the height of the Cold War.

The final components of the B53 bomb will be broken down Tuesday at the Pantex Plant near Amarillo, the nation’s only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility. The completion of the dismantling program is a year ahead of schedule, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration, and aligns with President Barack Obama’s goal of reducing the number of nuclear weapons.

In pursuit of compassionate aggression?

Lying in disassembled pieces, the B53 bomb is an apt symbol of surrender – by the American left to America-haters everywhere.

    Wait one…an old military term

    A friend of mine who spend time in nuclear forces…has some interesting security clearances…tells me…this particular weapon was scheduled for destruction not because of politics because it was a thrown together device that lacked any protection from inadvertant detonation.  It was disintegrating on its own.  A bullet could set it off…it was not as we have come to expect a “won’t go odff except by intention” device.

    Nobama may be playing it as some big disarmament deal…those in the know …know this class of weapon  had to be CAREFULLY dismantled as it may have gone off within our borders and everything within 300 miles would have been eliminated…these were doomsday devices.

    I’ve know my friend for 30 years…I don’t think he made it up…then again…we get drunk together!

        I had heard that the old nuclear arsenal is in deteriation mode and should be dismantled as well.   But don’t expect for the current administration to tell us that is the reason.  Of course I’m glad it isn’t under control of the Navy Don———-f***ing SQUIDS !!!!!   See ya later .

          Correction— that’s  ” deterioration”—–TYPO !     Let me correct that before Don orders me to the firing squad or makes me walk the plank on some NAVY ship !

    Our enemies are building up their arsenals while   President BARACK   OTRAUMA  and his associates are trying to dismantle our defense capability.  IMHO , Barack Otrauma is doing more damage in his tenure than the former USSR couldn’t  do in fifty years.  IMHO ,  Barack Otrauma should be charged with treason, and sedition with his anti-American policies .  This man does not stand up for America or our allies.  Obama IMHO is a traitor and the biggest sellout our nation has ever seen.  Benedict Arnold  was  mild and considered childs-play compared to  Barack Otrauma.

                           What’s even worse is the brainwashed fools that voted for him and put him  in office not realizing that they were contributing to the demise of our great nation with that traitorous individual  in the seat of the presidency.   He  ( Otrauma ) gives tens of billions of dollars away to our open enemies , panders to Muslim extremists , and yet we’re in an economic recession with unemployment skyrocketing  and he throws money away as if there is no tomorrow and screams about wanting to raise taxes ( on those who are successful entrepreneurs ) to give to the parasitic losers of our society.
                           I still can’t believe that we have stupid white liberals who voted for Otrauma , the man who sat in the pews of Rev. Jeremiah Wright for 20 years  and then we have stupid black liberals who voted for Otrauma blindly for no other reason than his ethnicity  ( both sides are utter fools and ignorant ).
                       With this guy in office we will have practically no capability to defend ourselves from an all out nuclear attack from China , Russia, Iran , North Korea  Pakistan and others.   Yet the American public is still “asleep” as if all is well.  We have spent untold billions of dollars ( if not a trillion or more ) in wars in the Middle East and lost thousands of American lives all for people who hate our guts and would kill us in a heartbeat if they had the opportunity.  As I stated before—– we have stupid and foolish people running the country.  And we have gullible  brainwashed fools who put them in office to begin with .  IMO , the future of our great nation looks bleak and I am not trying to sound pessimistic but only keeping it real.  This is no time to worry about ‘sensibilities ” , but instead we need to assert ourselves more vigorously and speak up and stand up for America !

      In continuation to my above post ——————-

                          If you think this pisses you off , Russia is reported to be improving it’s high speed rocket powered torpedo giving it long range capability and psssibly a guidance system.   And yet , here we are reducing our arsenal while our enemies are increasing theirs.
                        Here are a few links to check out that will make the hair stand up on your head regarding the Russian torpedo called [ Shkval ] aka –squall .
       You can do  a Google keyword search under [ Russian high speed torpedo ]  and check out the sites .  Warning– DO NOT click on the site titled — BA-111 Shkval by the global security organization as my anti-virus software indicated a major virus on that site.

      http://www.aquilinefocus.blogspot.com/…/those-345-mph-supercavitating-torpedoes

       I believe the website  mispelled torpedo.  This is a rocket poweredtorpedo built in Russia that was originally reported to be capable of travelling 230 mph under water , and now reported to be capable of 345 mph travelling in an airpocket  created by the torpedo itself.  It has a very short range which is it’s disadvantage   but it’s reported that it is being improved.  What’s worrisome is the thing can be nuclear tipped and one can take out a massive aircraft carrier with one blast if they increase the range tremendously and make it guided . It’s noisy underwater and is easily detected by sonar ,  however surface ships could use it.    We need to copy their model , improve it and use it for our advantage but don’t expect Otrauma to improve our defences .  We need seriously to elect pro-American people to public office who will defend America and our sovereignty. The world is getting more and more dangerous and we don’t need to be reducing our arsenal but increasing our capability. It’s madness how here we are a nation of such advanced technology and advanced industrial infrastructure and science & engineering and yet we have some of  the most inept and stupid leaders imaginable . But then again –stupid people put them there.   Go figure !!!!
