The Naivete Is Stunning

Your required reading for today is Charles Krauthammer’s take down of Obama’s preposterous new nuclear policy as only the Hammer can.

Under President Obama’s new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is “in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT),” explained Gates, then “the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.”

Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up to date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)

However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT-noncoirmpliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.

This is quite insane. It’s like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets (a) hanged or (b) 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.

When you break it down as Krauthammer does, Americans have to scratch their heads and think “Say what?”  I wonder how the Democrats facing tough re-election races this November feel about Barry handing their opponents another winning issue.

  1. Love Dr. K, but this is not about being naive,it is about demented ideology.As in suicidal leftism.

    btw,we certainly did face a very real nuke showdown with the commies back in October 1962.

  2. We have faced a very really nuke showdown with the Ruskies since they got the bomb. We still face a nucular showdown with them. The commies aren’t in charge anymore. The KGB is.

  3. Quotes from Thomas Jefferson, founder of the Democratic Party:

    “The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

    “The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our money for unexplained projects forbids it in the disposition of the public moneys.”

    “I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.”
