We don't call them terrorists any more. Now this. What's next? A human chain of hand holding around the globe, singing Obama songs?

1. He stated it wouldn't be something that would happen anytime soon - "perhaps not in my lifetime." So he's not even obliged to take any action to make it happen.

2. It gives the US diplomatic leverage on the struggle to keep other nations from starting nuclear programs. The fundamental argument for these nations is 'you have them, why can't we?' That no longer holds.

3. It opens up the notion that US foreign policy has grown into more than putting our foot on their throats. With modern weaponry it's just not viable to say 'fug you, we'll blow you up' and expect to have a free, safe society. Take away all the nukes in the world and we're still have the most overwhelmingly powerful military in the world. We don't need nukes to kick ass.

Then what's the point? Imagine a Republican president saying "I would like to lead the world in getting rid of drugs."

In a liberal's mind, maybe.

It opens up the notion that America is softer than ever. The people who don't want to use nukes agree with Obama. The people who can't wait to get their hands on one are thinking "what an idiot...good."

Why must everything be liberal or conservative? Can someone not think objectively without a political motive?

For what's it's worth I'm a libertarian, I don't buy into any of the BS spewed by either party. The republicans and democrats have so much unchecked power that all they have to worry about is slandering the other party - and that's all politics is. People don't discuss issues anymore, they just pick a side and duke it out. I'll admit though, that's much easier than actually having an intelligent thought.

I didn't say Republican or Democrat. "Let's get rid of nukes" is a liberal rallying cry. Just like "let's get rid of drugs" or "let's get rid of radical Islam" is for conservatives. I think all of those things are naive.

I'm libertarian too, by the way.
