Quote of the day – Charles Krauthammer

The worst thing about this [START]  treaty, however, is that it is simply a distraction. It gives the illusion of doing something about nuclear danger by addressing a non-problem, Russia, while doing nothing about the real problem – Iran and North Korea. The utter irrelevance of New START to nuclear safety was dramatically underscored last week by the revelation of that North Korean uranium enrichment plant, built with such sophistication that it left the former head of the Los Alamos National Laboratory “stunned.” It could become the ultimate proliferation factory. Pyongyang is already a serial proliferator. It has nothing else to sell. Iran, Syria and al-Qaeda have the money to buy.

The Washington Post

Obama’s dream of a nuclear free world is naive and childish. Why he’s called the man-child president, I suppose.

It’s like the old bumper sticker – “when they outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have them.”  This is no different except for the power of the weapon.

We’ll disarm and set an example for — who? The Iranians or the North Koreans? Hugo Chavez? And we all know that this is the ultimate Chavez dream. These are the true nuclear threats. As Krauthammer says: who lays awake nights worrying about what the Brits are doing with their nukes? We worry about the rogue nutcases out there.  And no matter what we do, they are not going to disarm – not one iota.

But this is the typical leftist utopian fantasy: a world free of nuclear weapons  – oh, and also polar bears hugging us in our driveways.
