    Obama Limits When U.S. Would Use Nuclear Arms - NYTimes.com

    "But the president said in an interview that he was carving out an exception for 'outliers like Iran and North Korea' that have violated or renounced the main treaty to halt nuclear proliferation."

    Those threats, Mr. Obama argued, could be deterred with “a series of graded options,” a combination of old and new conventional weapons. “I’m going to preserve all the tools that are necessary in order to make sure that the American people are safe and secure,” he said in the interview in the Oval Office.

    You neo-cons are more dangerous to the world than the Taliban with a nuke. You people don't even quote the article and I doubt you even read it. You looked at a Drudge headline, specifically written to scare the bejesus out of you, and you react like stupid little lemmings.

    When will the conservative movement get some brains behind it?

    To be fair, how often have we actually used nuclear weapons against an enemy? Twice.

    Does anyone honestly think our enemies are expecting us to ever use them?

    Barry is a moron.

    To say that the USA would not respond with a nuke to a major chemical or biological attack if the attacker had no nukes is maximum stupidity.

    This asshole has no business being commander in chief and the sooner he is voted out of office the better.

    Nixon's policy of detente was successful with the Russians and helped establish a tenuous peace between our nations during a turbulent time. Similarly, despite Reagan's initial rhetoric, he eventually pursued a policy of quiet diplomacy with Gorbachev and deemphasized the use of nuclear weapons, as they were detrimental to international relations with the Russians at the time.

    Another lesson in history needed I see. According to this logic, Nixon and Reagan both had no idea what they were doing by pursuing policies of cooperation or quiet diplomacy.

    Well if those who wish to see the USA destroyed didn't before, they sure know now and are most likely rethinking their tactics. As for myself any nukes, tactical low yield or otherwise should never be used in a war, and if the enemy escalated the stakes using dirty nukes or chemical warfare, in a response in an ongoing conflict or a surprise attack using them.......well I guess we'll all have to wait and see won't we?

    Always BE PREPARED..........why do you think we had items like the MK101 depth charge?

    If you don't know what it is, Google it.

    This country never used one, but with Iran and NK the stakes may be ratcheting up.

    I think by now everyone knows that what Obama says and what he does are often polar opposites.

    He's dishonest to the core and I don't think any enemy can count on him being anything but a pacifist pansy. But he may experience another rough spell so God help anyone who messes with him when he needs to score political points.

    Personally I wish he would go after our enemies like he does Fox News.

    This statement only encourages aggression. We don't need to use nukes but saying we won't removes the fear anyone might have had of us using them. Right now would be the best time for Russia to hit us with everything they have.
