  • Nightmare Cinema: A World Under Obama’s Arms Control

    In a recent speech to the Conference on Global Zero, Rose Gottemoeller, the Assistant Secretary for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, told the cheering masses, “New START was just the beginning. Going forward, we know that we are going to have to think bigger and bolder.” For those who don’t follow the play-by-play of nuclear arms control, “Global Zero” is a utopian plan embraced by President Obama: that if the U.S. gets rid of all of its nuclear weapons, the rest of the world will follow suit.

    Put aside, for now, research that suggests such a strategy is more likely to lead to nuclear war. Just the thought that Obama still thinks New START was a good deal is scary enough. All the arms control treaty that the President signed with the Russians did was make Moscow a bigger nuclear power than the U.S.

    On top of this, Obama wants to gut the U.S. nuclear arsenal even more—a policy that is more likely to take us back to the days of mutually assured destruction and massive retaliation than to a world without nuclear weapons.

    For those who don’t have time to catch up on all the nuclear news, here are two very short videos that illustrate where Obama’s policies are leading the nation. One shows a plausible future we might face under Obama. The other explains the EMP threat.

    Under Obama’s policies, these frightful flicks could one day become history.
