The makings of a global tragedy 140

 On Obama’s policy of giving up America’s nuclear capability while doing nothing to prevent the acquisition of nuclear arms by its worst enemies,  Mark Steyn comments:

The wish for "a world without nuclear weapons" is not merely a pacifist delusion but one that obliquely subscribes to the false equivalence so assiduously promoted during the Cold War.

I wouldn’t lose a moment’s sleep if I read in the paper that New Zealand and Switzerland had decided to become nuclear powers. It’s not the technology (which can’t be un-invented, any more than the rifle or the spear or the sling could). It’s the regime. North Korea and Iran going nuclear is not the same as Norway and St. Lucia going nuclear. It is so depressing to see the president of the United States mired in obsolete Cold War non-proliferation bromides…

 It’s not just embarassing to hear the so-called "leader of the free world" talking like a 14-year old who’s been up in his room listening to "Imagine" for too long. I fear this presidency has the makings of global tragedy.
