Flapjack's Gone Daft

We never could have anticipated that Barack Obama would be so un-schooled as to think that the nuclear genie can be be put back in the proverbial bottle, that military or dual-use technology can be selectively unlearned, but there he goes.

"As long as nuclear weapons exist, we'll retain a strong deterrent. But we will make the goal of eliminating all nuclear weapons a central element in our nuclear policy," Obama said.

He added, "The danger ... is that we are constantly fighting the last war, responding to the threats that have come to fruition, instead of staying one step ahead of the threats of the 21st century."

How can Obama claim he will stay "one step ahead of threats of the 21st century," by pretending 20th century technologies can be selectively recaptured and caged?

How can he claim to be ahead of 21st century threats, when he won't face the problems generated by 6th century ideologies?

And does anyone believe that his naive pacifism will be reciprocated by tyrants and dictators?

Obama's speech is filled with platitudes, but we're electing a President, not a bubble-headed pageant winner, and the first-term senator is proving yet again that he simply doesn't have the judgment for the job.

Flapjack has got his own show on the cartoon network.

Obama seems to want to run a campaign entirely by bumper-stickers.

This is not surprising, and it will make the Dems feel good. He takes the same policy on gun control.

The only country 'Barack Hussein Obama', 'Osama' Bin Laden and the real Saddam 'Hussein' want or wanted to disarm nuclear weapons in is the USA.

God help us when we scrap the last warhead and the President-for-Life of Lower Wazootistan says "Oops! I just found a half dozen leftover Soviet warheads in the basement of the Presidential Palace! Who's gonna be top bid?"

Except we won't know about that until the one with the green crescent painted on it shows up in DC.

Ha ha! What riotous fun and wacky hijinks shall ensue!

How can the Obamanation claim to be at the forefront of the 'next' war (hell he was opposed to the present war and probably was opposed to all the conflicts the US successfully and/or unsuccessfully engaged in during the past thirty years) when he proposes no production of new fissile materials, elimination of missile defense, destruction of satellite wartime capability, slowdowns or eliminations of new weapons programs and reductions in defense budgeting to go to Africa and his civilian combat forces. All told sounds like unilateral disarmament and nuke moratoria prevalent in the leftwing during the 1980s. Yeah, change, that's the ticket.

""... we will make the goal of eliminating all nuclear weapons a central element of our nuclear policy," Obama said."

How does he plan to stop any country from building a bomb? I'd like to know EXACTLY how he plans on eliminating nuclear weapons from the face of the globe. Too bad the press will never ask for specifics.
