Arms Control Amnesia

by Keith B. Payne - July 7th, 2009 - Wall Street Journal

President Obama should recall Winston Churchill's warning: "Be careful above all things not to let go of the atomic weapon until you are sure and more than sure that other means of preserving peace are in your hands." There is no need for the U.S. to accept Russian demands for missile-defense linkage, or deep reductions in the number of our ICBMs, SLBMs and bombers, to realize much lower numbers of Russian strategic systems. There is also no basis for expecting Russian goodwill if we do so.

The problem with that philosophy is that Barack Obama does not care if America can defend itself. All of the people who cautioned about all of the signs that Barack Obama was an enemy of our nation are turning out to be right. Why was the First Lady so determined to be out of America on the 4th of July, spending her time in Russia instead? Is she as many have long suspected, an agent of the global communist conspiracy?

Why did Obama leap so quickly to endorse the Marxist President who was trying to subvert the Honduran Constitution? Only the other Marxist leaders of the Americas were also in such a hurry to defend Zelaya.

Why has Obama declared such urgency to implement the new START program without the required Senate approval? What is the rush? Gutting America's defenses? (And why did the MSM cover up another of his constant screw ups when he called Putin President instead of Prime Minister?)

Barack Obama has started a program to destroy America's competitiveness in the world. The huge debt he is building up is gutting our industrial strength and weakening our nation. TARP, the Stimulus, the huge budget, Cap-and-Tax and the huge new healthcare bill are all designed to crush America's free enterprise system. They will. Our unemployment is surging again and the economy is headed further down. This is expected. Obama wants America on its knees.

Obama says the future does not belong to those who gather armies or plant missiles. He intends to unilaterally disarm. The weaker we are, the sooner he can surrender to Russia.
