    Re: Obama Renews Calls for Nuclear Reductions.....

    Barack Obama returned to Berlin today, almost five years to the day from when he delivered his famous "Victory Column" speech that cemented his reputation as an international rockstar. Unfortunately, his reception this time was a lot different.

    An estimated 200,000 people turned out in July 2008 to see then Candidate Obama deliver an address in front of one of Germany's most notable landmarks.

    Fast forward to 2013, and many are now saying that Obama's reputation is "tarnished," by his recent snooping scandals, his extensions of the war on terror, and the hard luck realities of failing to deliver on all your promises. He's "demystified" and "no longer a superstar" in German eyes. Now he's just another world leader on a state visit, and whatever problems people have with U.S. policy are on his shoulders.

    And instead of opening up the speech to the whole city, Obama spoke in front only about 5,000-6,000 spectators, all of them invited guests.

    it turns out that ich-bin-ein-berliners are just a buncha rassisten (racists)

    Why is it important when the economy is on life support and the only thing keep it afloat is massive Fed Printing ?

    Actually, reducing the number of warheads reduces the amount of time we have to spend on upkeep, inventory, etc. So again I ask, how many do we actually need. One would think YOU as a conservative would be happy with a reduction in obvious cost to the government in maintaing nuclear warheads.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Well since this reduction of nuclear weapons leaves us with much more than that, there should be no objection then.

    There is no limit to the amount we need. You apparently didn't get my humor.
