Did you know that Russia is building submarines that are so quiet that the U.S. military cannot detect them? These “black hole” submarines can freely approach the coastlines of the United States without fear of being detected whenever they want. In fact, a “nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles” sailed around in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks without being detected back in 2012. And now Russia is launching a new class of subs that have “advanced stealth technology”. The U.S. Navy openly acknowledges that they cannot track these subs when they are submerged. That means that the Russians are able to sail right up to our coastlines and launch nukes whenever they want. But instead of trying to find a way to counteract this potential threat, the Obama administration has been working very hard to dismantle the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal. In the end, we could potentially pay a great price for this (Read More...)
While Barack Obama is busy gutting the U.S. nuclear arsenal, Russia and China are rapidly preparing for the day when they will nuke the United States. To most Americans, it sounds very strange to hear that Russia and China are concerned about nuclear war. After all, isn’t the Cold War over? Isn’t that what politicians from both major political parties keep telling us? Unfortunately, the truth is that Russia and China both consider the United States to be their number one geopolitical threat, and both nations have been systematically strengthening and updating their strategic forces. At the end of last month, Russia held a large-scale military drill that involved the launch of four nuclear missiles, and the Chinese government released a major report for the public which included maps showing what would happen to major U.S. cities in the event of a nuclear attack by Chinese submarines. Obama may blindly believe that wishful thinking and unilateral disarmament will keep the United States safe, but Russia and (Read More...)
In a previous post we detailed how Barack Obama wants to reduce the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal to just a few hundred nuclear warheads. Now it has come out that Barack Obama recently shifted the authority for approving sales of missile and space technology to China from the White House to the Commerce Department. There has been very little fanfare regarding this move, but critics are claiming that it could make it much, much easier for China to acquire advanced missile technology.
Of course officials at the Commerce Department are claiming that the move will not cause controls to be loosened regarding the export of missile and space technology to China, but we all know that is a joke.
After all, what does the Commerce Department know about national security anyway?
Not a whole lot.
But unfortunately, the problem is not just Obama.
The whole national security regime in Washington seems oblivious to the reality that Islamic terrorists are not the number one national security threat that we face.
Rather, it is Russia and (Read More...)
Five months ago in Prague, Barack Obama called for a world free of nuclear weapons during one of his first major foreign policy speeches. It turns out that he was actually serious about this absurd proposal. In fact, Obama is demanding that the Pentagon conduct a “radical review” of the U.S. nuclear weapons program in preparation for deep cuts to America’s nuclear stockpile.
What kind of deep cuts?
Well, the United States currently has approximately 2,600 nuclear warheads deployed, with about another 2,500 in reserve and 4,000 more that are waiting to be dismantled.
The Obama administration has been negotiating a deal with the Russians to reduce both nuclear arsenals to 1,500 warheads, but Obama views this as simply a “first step”.
According to the Guardian, Obama completely rejected the Pentagon’s first draft of the “nuclear posture review”.
Why did he reject it?
Well, apparently it was ”too timid” for Obama.
You see, Obama does not just want to trim the U.S. nuclear arsenal, (Read More...)
