On President Obama weighing the option of dismantling up to 80% of the U.S. nuclear arsenal…
The regime, led by Barack Hussein Obama, is weighing options for reducing our US nuclear force, including a reduction of up to 80% in the number of deployed warheads. Eighty percent. Folks, this is staggering. Meanwhile, the Iranians are nuking up… We are unilaterally disarming. We are not requiring the Russians to go along. And even if the Russians said they would match these reductions, they lie! That is the lesson of Russians, and nukes… Our number of warheads peaked at 12,000 in the late 80s. And let me tell you something. That number of nuclear warheads is what helped us win the cold war. That number of nuclear warheads sent a message to every other nation, particularly at that point in time the Soviet Union: you hit us, it doesn’t matter. We’ve got enough left to wipe you out in retaliation. That many nuclear warheads was a deterrent.
