    Obama Renews Calls for Nuclear Reductions.....

    Appealing for a new citizen activism in the free world, President Barack Obama renewed his call Wednesday to reduce U.S. and Russian nuclear stockpiles and to confront climate change, a danger he called "the global threat of our time."

    In a wide-ranging speech that enumerated a litany of challenges facing the world, Obama said he wanted to reignite the spirit that Berlin displayed when it fought to reunite itself during the Cold War.

    "Today's threats are not as stark as they were half a century ago, but the struggle for freedom and security and human dignity, that struggle goes on," Obama said at the city's historic Brandenburg Gate under a bright, hot sun. "And I come here to this city of hope because the test of our time demands the same fighting spirit that defined Berlin a half-century ago."



    The president called for a one-third reduction of U.S. and Russian nuclear stockpiles, saying it is possible to ensure American security and a strong deterrent while also limiting nuclear weapons

    Germany's foreign minister, Guido Westerwelle, is a strong advocate of nuclear disarmament and has long called for the removal of the last U.S. nuclear weapons from German territory, a legacy of the Cold War. The Buechel Air Base in western Germany is one of a few remaining sites in Europe where they are based.

    Under an agreement drawn up when they formed a coalition government in 2009, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives and Westerwelle's Free Democratic Party agreed to press NATO and Washington for the nuclear weapons to be withdrawn, but did not set any timeframe.

    Nuclear stockpile numbers are closely guarded secrets in most nations that possess them, but private nuclear policy experts say no countries other than the U.S. and Russia are thought to have more than 300. The Federation of American Scientists estimates that France has about 300, China about 240, Britain about 225, and Israel, India and Pakistan roughly 100 each.....snip~

    Stupid **** is all over the damn place. Why doesn't he fix the broke economy and establish an environment for job creation first? There is no immediate need to reduce stockpiles right now, it's a diversion. And more bull**** about climate change. An Oval Office change would do us more good.

    Why post a new thread and an OP that has no opinion of your own. Most forums have rules against doing that for good reason. At least letting people know what you think are Obama's motives would give others a chance to debate the issue.

    At least you are able to come up with some irrational comments on why Obama shouldn't have done it. That at least serves to illustrate that hating Obama is all that's on your plate at the moment. It really does give it away!

    Well, to be honest I wanted to get it up as breaking news and as to my Opinion. I would be against Obama trying to talk about Nuclear disarmament. Or attempting to reduce any stockpiles without assurances from others. But even moreso due to him reducing our Military Forces.

    Also Due to him talking about arming Rebels.

    Were you looking to pontificate over Obama?

    Then can we have some good reasons to do it? Obama continually weakens our defenses.
    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.

    You realize your'e the biggest RACIST here. People like you will throw the term around and do just about anything to perpetuate the false narrative of "Right Wing Racism".

    Its your hole card because your arguments and opinion cant stand on their own merits.

    You hypocritically ignore the millions of voters that chose Obama because he was Black, and dredge old and innacurate stero-types to push your desperately stupid opinions.

    Racist Southerners in the US were Democrats. The Democrats fillibustered the 1964 voting rights act and opposed integration.

    So stop with the childish race baiting. Your'e embarassing yourself and showing that apparently Canadian Left Wingers are still stuck in 2008 when it comes to debate tactics that suck.

    This bull****, this trip is nonsense......and go look at what's going on in Kabul. People are pissed off about his surveillance program, and he's talking about nukes. Your undying love of Obama is noted.
