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.

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, he wants to gut it.
Instead of an arsenal with thousands of deployed nuclear warheads, the Obama administration envisions a U.S. nuclear arsenal with only a few hundred deployed nuclear warheads, with a goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons (Read More....)
