    First:
    What is the opinion of board members here of this part of Obama's new Nuclear Posture Review concerning the use of nuclear weapons.
    "Nuclear weapons will no longer be used in retaliation for a nuclear attack, chemical warfare attack or a biological weapons attack against the United States."
    Does this remove a significant deterrent to Nations bent on aquiring WMD's and their using them against the United States?

    Second:
    It appears Obama has NOT cut ties to Robert Malley, his college chum and chief advocate of negotiating with terrorists without preconditions, as Malley has been negotiating with HAMAS behind the scenes. State Department official Rachel Schneller has met privately with HAMAS officials on numerous occasions!!! Even attending an Al Jazeera debate panel with HAMAS officials present.
    Why does Obama insist on negotiating wth terrorists who refuse to renounce violence, refuse to acknowledge Israel's right to exist and abide by all previously signed agreements with Israel negotiaters?

    Obama just basically told the terrorists to come on and attack us, we won't fight back! Idiot!
    Now they know we won't use Nukes, and we won't torcher them, so what have they got to be afraid of?
    He hates Isreal and showed that when Bibi was here...Obama acted like a spoiled child and treated him like dirt. I'm so ashamed of our so called president for his actions, i can't believe people still "believe" in him!

    why do you refuse to ignore the fact that violence just begets violence. Everytime we bomb them and kill innocent people, more people get angered with the US.Same thing you would feel if some foreign country bombed your neighborhood killing your family and friends.

    How has continual cycle of violence worked in Israel-Palestinian conflict? Decades of continued blood shed. At some point you need to act like civilized human beings and come to a compromise, or get to the bottom of the issues at hand.

    I'm continually amazed at how many people can be so violent and think the only answer is more violence

    I guess the answer is, hell, if they attack us, might as well destroy the rest of humanity? That what you prefer?

    if terrorist use nuclear weapon, we should punish innocent civilians in the countries they arfe hiding, as well as neighboring countries, which may even be allies, from the radiation cloud.Shit, it could even make its way back to us.

    Barak Hussein is a douche bag.

    America's enemies need to know what if they attack the US with a WMD, that everything is on the table.

    Limiting the options serves no purpose other than taking away deterrence from america's enemies.

    The problem is that if you don't answer naked violence with violence, you will lose.

    If a murderer is trying to break into your house, would you open the door for him and attempt to talk your way through it?

    The point is that some people can't be trusted and therefore you need to protect yourself. So, i guess if you feel the other party is trust worthy and willing to live up to their end of the deal, then it could work. Otherwise, you need to protect yourself or you're just being stupid.

    That statement is mine....in the NPR on this website, the statement made by SecDef gates is as follows....
    Defense.gov News Article: Review Provides Deterrence, Arms Reduction Roadmap

    It's all quite clear...if a non nuclear state such as Syria gets a nuclear weapon into the hands of terrorists or uses another WMD they are pretty much safe from retaliation in kind....and knowing Obama the "overwhelming conventional response would be nothing more than a cruise missile attack ala Clinton "wag the dog" style. Obama's stated goal of a nuclear weapons free world is a personal mission of his and may sound good to the left but in reality all we are doing is inviting attacks and encouraging rogue nations to build WMD's.

    Obama capitulated to the Russians in this treaty...he will NOT do needed updates to our nuclear arsenal, he will halt any type of missile defense systems from being built, tested or deployed.

    he's basically handed the defense of the USA over to a European Union style of "let's talk instead of fight our enemies no matter how many of us they kill with wanton acts of violence."...which is in keeping with his current MASSIVE reduction in active duty soldiers, sailrs and Marines that is getting ZERO press coverage. That's why I'm so happy that dumb ass Gore wasn't elected President. At least Bush has a spine and isn't a pussy like 99% of the left wingers.

    Obama is selling out the country to a European style of socialism...which means a small military, limited foreign policy and massive domestic social programs that require the bulk of our GDP to be spent to keep them solvent.
