Why is Obama changing our Nuclear policy now?

Hasn't our current policy worked for the past 50+ years? We have yet to be attacked by nuclear weapons. Our allies have yet to be attacked by nuclear weapons.

Why deliberately make the US weaker by changing policy when the past policy has done exactly what it set out to do?

    Because he is the "almighty annointed one" and he can do whatever he wants. I can't wait until we vote him out in 2012.

    Because he is more interested in being popular around the globe then he is for protecting the country in which he lives this means countries who have signed this non nuclear proliferation treaty can use chemical weapons us or our allies without a nuclear response from the United States.... The last real president that was actually for the American people and against the Federal Reserve (which isint even Federal) was Kennedy and we know what happend to him. The real question you should be asking is who controls Obama? Who got him into office? Check out a video on youtube.com called the Obama deception it will explain all, Obama is controlled by an elite group of international bankers along with the military industrial complex.

    A large scale war in this century is inevitable. A Nuclear World War 3 would result in a Nuclear Winter. Any future war needs to be non-nuclear. It is an inevitable step if you were to understand war and government. The idea of such a treaty has been around for decades.

    Just because we haven't been attacked by nuclear weapons recently doesn't mean the current policy is working.

    This doesn't make the U.S. weaker at all, it helps us move forward toward our goal of a nuclear weapon free world. Just because things seem to be not so bad right now to the average Joe-schmo doesn't mean we shouldn't try to make things better. It's called progress.

    he could no longer do this. Now that he's ultimately getting real national risk-free practices briefings, he's located out that different the stuff he became working his mouth approximately during the marketing campaign became a crock of sh^t. we've in no way stopped having diplomatic discussions with all of us - the two at as quickly as or via surrogates - and he will shop those procedures going. Obama isn't an fool and he could no longer positioned himself able to be humiliated with the aid of the likes of Chavez, Ahmadenijad, or the different evil jackass. In some days, he stands out as the chief of the unfastened international, and that they are going to all hate HIM. in simple terms like they hated Bush. did no longer you pay attention Osama bin laden's recent tape? He did no longer even wait till January 20, 2009. Hate Obama, early and generally.

    Because it is barbaric and inhumane to think of using these weapons. With no Soviet Union, we have no enemy with anywhere near our deadly force capacity. It is not a deterrent, it causes intimidation and provokes retaliation as we are seeing now. We have to lead the way toward a peaceful world. It is plain to see you don't achieve that with threats.

    We are the strongest and most effective military force in the world without using deadly nuclear weapons. The weapons we have in use are bad enough, like the wretched white phosphorus, cluster bombs, daisy cutters, all lethal and destructive enough. We don't need the worst invention of all.

    Our having nuclear weapons has only created in other countries the need to also have them.

    You are not weakening American defenses by eliminating them. Let's leave them in the past where they belong. There is enough mayhem and going on as a result of American military operations.

    Don't know but not to worry there enough nukes in the US and Russia alone to destroy the earth a thousand times over. Any reduction will have little effect on that.
