President Obama's
Naive Nuclear Posturing

by Charles Krauthammer - April 9th, 2010 - Investor's Business Daily

Nuclear doctrine consists of thinking the unthinkable. It involves making threats and promising retaliation that is cruel and destructive beyond imagining. But it has its purpose: to prevent war in the first place.

It is not just on Nuclear Posturing that Obama is displaying his naive ideas about foreign relations. He is rapidly replacing Pax Americana with... nothing. With a feel good belief that America is no longer a reliable ally or an enemy that needs to be feared. The result. Chavez is one of a hand full of Central and South American rulers that are starting to interfere in their neighboring countries internal affairs, acts which will inevitably lead to war in our hemisphere.

The same naive ideas have led to our abandoning Israel in the middle east, assuring that not only will Pakistan have nuclear bombs, but shortly so will Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Syria. Anyone who remembers the earlier acts of the Pakistani nuclear genius Khan (helping Syria, Lybia and Iraq in their nuclear efforts), will have little doubt Pakistan can generate huge sums sharing their nuclear expertise with fellow Islamic countries and movements. It is not unlikely that even Al Qaeda or the Taliban could join the nuclear club by simply buying a couple of bombs for use on Israel and the U.S.

Gee whiz, Obama. Do you not have a single adviser who has suggested to you the real world consequences of your gutting America's image? Or do you just not care if New York and Washington become a smoldering nuclear wasteland?
