Obama Seeks to Eliminate U.S. Nuclear Defense Expertise
Wow, yet another twist on how the Obama Administration is hell bent on destroying our once-great country. An excellent piece in the Wall Street Journal illustrates how the elimination of all our nuclear weapons will endanger our defenses aside from the obvious inability to fight nuclear fire with nuclear fire. How does a country fight nuclear proliferation without nuclear experts?
The U.S. is now in danger of forever losing [the nuclear] talent that keeps the nation safe.
That is a disturbing development, because the threat isn’t going away. Iran is producing enriched uranium. North Korea in February detonated its third nuclear weapon since 2006, and terrorists continually seek this capability. The risk endures and is growing.
Public luminaries… have called for the elimination of nuclear weapons, and the Obama Administration embraces this goal.
… the Obama administration’s goal is to drive the U.S. [nuclear] stockpile to zero. The reasoning is that by reducing the country’s weapons and its nuclear complex- people, resources and infrastructure- the U.S. will lead the way in reducing the nuclear threat. Others will then follow.
To eradicate the nuclear threat, America needs to employ the world’s best nuclear weaponeers. And although it seems paradoxical, the only way to do that is to maintain a nuclear stockpile- perhaps a small one but a real one. We can’t rely on models, simulations or non-nuclear substitutes to give [our weaponeers] experience.
Zeroing out the U.S. nuclear stockpile also means zeroing out the nuclear-talent stockpile, with potentially catastrophic results. (block quote credit J. Douglas Beason “Our Endangered Nuclear Weaponeers” Wall Street Journal 5/31/13)
Interesting, isn’t it? At the very same time Obama complains about our purported inability to compete academically with other countries, his actions would eliminate a whole subset of academics, our nuclear experts.
