On Obama’s disarmament priorities
From Power Line:
We are now three weeks out from the presidential election, and so far as I am aware Barack Obama has not been asked a single question about the disarmament credo he sets forth in the video…
Isn’t it time for someone who covers politics for a living to ask Obama a few serious questions about this credo? Or for John Mccain to note it?
Watch the video and hear Obama in his own words.
Rubin describes one of the obvious implications of a unilateral disarmament mentality:
Joe Biden said it again today: “We will end this war.” Referring to Iraq neither he or Barack Obama ever say “win.” They never even say “secure the gains.” One hopes they don’t really believe their campaign hooey. They must understand victory is nearly at hand, and all that is required is a patient transition and a deliberate plan for insuring that violence does not resurface, right? We really don’t know, but at some point the rhetoric becomes reality and he, his supporters and the overwhelmingly Democratic Congress will act accordingly.
This all might be a good topic for the final debate: why is “end” always the goal and not “win”? What does that message transmit to our enemies?…
