Nukes!

Post by northern_goddess » Thu Dec 22, 2016 8:55 pm

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 4h4 hours ago
The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

Perfect and makes a lot of sense of course, specifically coming from such a sensitive and well balanced mind. Prepare for the worst! Happy Christmas.

Thankfully, we will soon get rid of the Dept of Energy (this is the agency that handles nuke stuff, since not many posters or DOE nominees seem to be aware of that). We can then delegate nuclear weapons development and management to county sheriffs, because The Constitution.

LOL. Poor pitiful creatures. The left used the same scare tactics when Reagan was elected. I know because I was one of them at that time. I and others were convinced Reagan was going to get us all nuked. Some things never change.

Take Dr. Ben Carson as an example. A world renowned and respected neurosurgeon that ran one of the most prestigious hospitals in the world. Now he's a dumb ass incompetent stooge according to the left. Obama couldn't even get a web site functioning after spending half a billion on it, but he gets a pass because he's one of the leftist elites. At least he tried, huh. You're very sick creatures.

As a point of fact, Carson never ran a hospital. He ran a sub-department of a hospital. I'm not saying that's a minor thing, but it's not large-scale management either.

Yes, you're correct. However, what he ran was above and beyond anything our current occupier of the People's House could ever dream of.

And no one questions his greay ability and skills as a surgeon.

But you wouldn't necessarily want him to repair your car or make your travel arrangements. I dated a highly skilled microsurgeon who regularly reattached limbs and digits, restoring nerve and circulatory function after horrible accidents. He trained other doctors from all over the world. He had a staff of 5.

The majority of the department business was run by his admin. At home, he had the skills of a walnut. That doesn't mean he wasn't brilliant.

Carson also said he didn't feel qualified to run a gov't department which is odd since he ran for President.

It's certainly true that Obama did not have much management experience coming into the Whitehouse. Though the Pres isn't really managing an organization - the cabinet members are supposed to be.

And Eric - that was a spokesperson who said that, not Carson himself. Though, still.

Fact is Obama is a failure. His signature legislation, which he had no part in writing is a failure and about to be repealed and replaced. Obama never wrote one letter while president of Harvard Law Review. Not one. He's nothing but a pitch man. Obama is the perfect symbol for the left. Phoney. Obama is barely qualified to be Dr. Carson's valet.

I didn't edit the tweet so that's all we got. Perhaps the Bromance is over. :(


Trump communications director Jason Miller sent a statement to try to explain the President-elect's tweet on nuclear capability.
He suggested Trump was "referring to the threat of nuclear proliferation and the critical need to prevent it," although that was not referenced in the tweet. He also said Trump was emphasizing the need to "modernize our deterrent capability."

the smaller tactical nukes are great at expanding empires

the general question the superpowers are asking now is how much nuking is acceptable? basically making them an offensive weapon even though the spin will say otherwise - cuase you know the Crimea was a huge threat to Russia

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich praised the style and substance of Donald Trump’s suggestion for a new nuclear arms race, calling the president-elect’s use of Twitter to make major policy pronouncements “brilliant.”

Gingrich, an informal Trump adviser, told “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace that the longstanding U.S. policy of reducing the number of its nuclear weapons has “failed.” He claimed that it has enabled former Cold War foes China, North Korea and Russia to rebuild or expand their capacities.

“There are a number of steps [Russia is] taking to be a war-fighting capability,” Gingrich said. “We have to, candidly, overmatch that.”

He also defended Trump’s decision to announce the new nuclear weapons policy over Twitter.

“On the tweeting thing, let me just suggest if I might, we might as well get used to it,” Gingrich said. “This is who he is, it’s how he’s going to operate ― whether it’s brilliant or stupid.”


The comments shocked nuclear arms control experts since it appeared to break with a decades-long bipartisan consensus on the need to reduce nuclear arsenals through international cooperation.

Trump’s transition team had insisted that the president-elect was referring to modernizing the arsenal, rather than expanding it. However, Trump reportedly said otherwise to Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” when she sought clarification about the statement from him on Friday. “Let it be an arms race,” Trump allegedly said. “We will outmatch them at every pass. And outlast them all.”

Now Russia is uppity? Before they were partners in fighting corruption!

It's common knowledge that the US is already expanding and modernizing it's nuclear arsenal, and no one is as aware of the details as Russia and China.

Nope. Trump is trying to exploit ignorance in some way.
