The Real Cost of Nuclear Deterrence

“Military critics” are already anticipating how to disembowel critical elements of the U.S. military — especially its aging nuclear deterrent — when the defense budget will be unveiled by the administration and sent to Congress February 9, 2016. In two recent essays, for instance, Gordon Adams, previously at the Office of Management and Budget in the Clinton administration, and Lawrence Korb, at the Center for American Progress, are both calling for dismantling the U.S. nuclear deterrent.

Korb has long claimed that nuclear deterrence itself is obsolete. He blames U.S. nuclear modernization plans for providing an excuse for North Korea to test and build nuclear weapons of their own. It is an echo of Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick’s 1984 warning that when things go wrong in the world, many critics of American policy will “always blame America first.”

Korb complains that twenty years ago the U.S. Senate failed to ratify the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty. And that fifteen years ago, the U.S. withdrew from the ABM treaty with the former USSR. These two actions, claims Korb, were responsible for providing the North Korea regime an incentive to test and build nuclear weapons. Any further nuclear modernization by America, claims Korb, will similarly force North Korea into more testing of nuclear weapons and building a bigger nuclear arsenal.

Adams, on the other hand, simply calls for the U.S. unilaterally to dismantle most of its nuclear deterrent. He proposes that the U.S. eliminate all land-based Minuteman missiles, take the strategic bombers out of their nuclear role and build only eight of the projected twelve nuclear submarines the U.S. is planning to acquire.

It’s Only Just Begun, the Promises, to Live

Beyond the Cusp

Yes Europe, you’ve only just begun and by the time it is all over, and that is counted in decades, at the longest, months with the start for Western Europe. Eastern Europe, who attempted to stand clear of the insanity, put up barriers now, before the propaganda war and slow death by infiltration starts. Look to Israel as that is now your fate. Western Europe, you can look to Gaza as you’re half way there, it’s only just begun. Like the song, once you’ve made the promises, “White lace and promises,” you’re married and before you know it, “We’ll find a place where there’s room to grow; and yes, we’ve just begun.” There is an infestation hidden amongst the refugees and they will continue to use the refugees as cover. The refugees will cover because it is all about honor and imposing Sharia. And learn that it is Sharia or…

The Boycott Makeover

999999From Adam Milstein’s Blog:

“it’s important to recognize that BDS is nothing new. Those behind this campaign have simply put old wine in a new bottle. Anti-Israel and anti-American boycotts initiated in the Middle East have been a part of American life since the early 1970s – and past experience in fighting these anti-Semitic Movements should guide our response in the present.

Arab boycotts of Jewish interests in the Land of Israel started as early as 1922, more than two decades before the establishment of a Jewish state in 1948. Arabs who violated this boycott were physically attacked by their brethren. Increasingly restrictive boycotts were instituted in 1933, 1934 and 1936.

An official organized boycott of the Jewish community in Palestine was adopted by the Arab League in December 1945, and persisted against Israel after its founding, with the goal of isolating the Jewish state from the international community.

Through the years, this boycott spread like a virus across the globe, resulting in institutionalized discrimination against Israeli goods and businesses.”

Tough Call

A Tough call ….

A man went to the Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Washington,
to have his wedding ring cut off his penis.

According to the nurse attending the operation, the patient’s girlfriend
found the ring in his pants pocket.

She didn’t know he was married and she was so mad she used petroleum jelly to slip the ring on his penis while he was asleep.

I don’t know what’s worse:

1. Having your girlfriend find out you’re married.

2. Explaining to your wife how your wedding ring got on your penis….OR…

3. Finding out your penis fits through your wedding ring.

Tough call. You decide.

A Few Things on My Mind

Beyond the Cusp

We may as well get the easy part before making some upset. Talking about making people upset, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon appears to have decided better to upset the Zionists than the Arabs and Muslims after all there are a mere fourteen to fifteen million Jews and half of them are not Zionists and a fair number of that non-Zionist group are ardently anti-Israel themselves and there are well over a hundred times as many Muslims of which probably seventy to eighty percent would love to see Israel gone and the Jews along with them. Well, perhaps United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon should take a stroll over to CCNY’s History Department and ask them about some of the other peoples whose leaders decided to side against the Jews and Israel and how they fared as there were almost always under twenty-five million Jews in the world thanks to our…
