Putin Arms as Obama Disarms

Over the past week, we’ve seen reports that President Obama plans to reduce the size of the US military and disarm a large portion of our nuclear arsenal.  His forced Pentagon cuts will result in nearly 100,000 service men and women being eliminated from the armed forces.  He also wants to scrap 80% of America’s nuclear weapons.

Obama is also pushing to revamp the military retirement system which would greatly reduce the number of career personnel.  It’s obvious that he has no respect for those who serve in the military or who desire to commit twenty years of their lives to defending our nation.

His goal is to cut the US military budget by hundreds of billions of dollars and weaken our national defenses.  He has demoralized a large portion of the military by his policies on gays in the military, oppression of Christian teachings by military chaplains and his promotion of Muslim teachings and rights in the armed forces.

So while Obama is busy slashing America’s military defenses to pieces, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is doing the exact opposite.  He has just committed $772 billion for arms buildup over the next ten years.

For what reason did Putin announce his plans to increase Russia’s military defenses?

He said that it had to do with the West (which includes the US) and their openness to disregard international law in intervening in other sovereign countries.  Russia has a huge treasure of natural resources and Putin said that he could envision other countries trying to invade Russia for them as the world economy weakens and becomes more unstable.

The government news Rossiskaya Gazeta quoted Putin as saying,

"The processes of global transformation currently underway may carry all sorts of risks with them, many of them unpredictable.  In a situation of global economic and other kinds of hardships, it may be very tempting for some to resolve their problems at others' expense, through pressure and coercion. It is no wonder that we already hear some voices saying that it is 'only natural' that resources of global significance should soon be declared as being above national sovereignty. We must exclude any such possibility, even a hypothetical one, with respect to Russia. This means that we should not tempt anybody with our weakness.

"We are forced to take decisive steps to bolster our national aerospace defense system to counter the US and NATO efforts in the deployment of missile defense.  One cannot be 'too patriotic' about this issue. Russia's military response to the global US missile shield, including its European part, will be effective and asymmetrical, a match for US missile defense policy."

Putin’s plans to use the $772 billion for,

“400 new intercontinental ballistic missiles, 2,300 late-generation tanks, 600 modern combat aircraft - including at least 100 military-purpose space planes - eight nuclear ballistic missile submarines, 50 surface warships as well as a whole new inventory of artillery, air defense systems, and about 17,000 new military vehicles.”

China continues to build its military and defenses and now Russia is doing the same.  Iran and North Korea are determined in their efforts to develop nuclear weapons and have threatened to use them if necessary.

So why in the world would Obama do the exact opposite and cut our military power and weapons when everyone else is building their up?  The last thing any person or nation needs to do in the face of increased dangers is to let down your defenses.

I can’t help but wonder if Obama is not setting America up for an economic and military takeover by foreign powers because nothing else makes sense of what he’s doing.

    "I can’t help but wonder if Obama is not setting America up for an economic and military takeover by foreign powers because nothing else makes sense of what he’s doing".....Giacomo...You're 1000% right. I have no doubt about it. I believe that every single thing that the traitor-in-chief has done and will ever do is motivated by his hatred for America.

    He is systematically chipping away at our liberties, weakening us in the eyes of the world by apologizing constantly for America, dividing us by spewing his class-warfare message repeatedly, permitting the persecution of Christians and encouraging the accomodation of Islamic law, showing contempt for our allies and bowing to our enemies, allowing an open border so that terrorists have an unguarded access to us, refusing to enforce immigration laws and deport illegals, initiating economic policies that are devastating millions of citizens, putting his cronies into positions of power as ''czars'' who do little more than contribute to the tearing down of our values, and on and on and on......and all done with his Cheshire grin.

    He despises America. I despise the man.

    • BUD

      AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE MORONS IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE IS IN THEIR OWN LITTLE WORLD. THE PEOPLE IN THEIR RESPECTIVE STATES DON'T LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON, AND THEY STILL DO NOTHING TO TURN THIS CRAZINESS AROUND. THE HOUSE AND SENATE NEED A TOTAL CLEANING OUT, AS WELL AS obummer TOO.

    • Republichic

      Screeminmeeme, you wrote an excellent comment. On top of that, it's 100% correct. I can't understand what appears to me to be common sense in figuring this out is so unbelievable by the left. Those closest to him in the WH are on the same ship, but most of his supporters refuse to believe what's so apparent to us. The day will come when the betrayal they will feel will most likely turn into rage. It's almost unbearable to listen to these people who defend him, especially those who you would consider intelligent and with the program. Every employee of the main street media should be fired and allowed to suffer the ills of some of us who have lost our income, filed bankruptcy and are fighting foreclosure. To intentionally defend this man and spin the news to reflect positively on Obama should be a crime. I refuse to watch the three networks for all the lies they have told and supported; however, I watch Glenn Beck on GBTV and know that the news I'm hearing and seeing is the truth. I am assured through God that our enemies will be taken care of. That is the only way I get through the day and not blow my stack over everything happening in our world and to my husband and me. Anger does nothing for you, but make you angrier; however, a good shout out does wonders for your ego. Have a great day.

    • SoulStraw

      _ _What hate speech will they use to attack Obama on this move?_ _How will they argue that Obama hates America when he lowered taxes for workers and wants to do the same for corporations, and just wants millionaires to pay the same rate as workers?__And I highly doubt that Obama is a traitor to America, as you are supposing, because he made it big in this nation. Are you really sure a guy who became successful in part because of this nation would really want to destroy it??? If you did, then I'd feel sorry for you. Cut the anti-Obama and Commie bashing crap and abandon the SS Republican Party. They are a sinking ship, so best you save yourself. Seek the truth, for the truth shall set you free.__The President is not the Enemy and does not fall under the guidelines you are trying to use. NEXT! __Klansman screeminmmee, thanks for proving my point!_The republican are the party of racist, bigots, extremists liars!__

      • screeminmeeme

        SoulStraw....your comments are absurd and border on the hysterical. . It's crystal clear that you know zip about this traitor-in-chief. I've been seriously following his political career for 8years. I've gathered a formidable pile of evidence that proves his anti-American bias (which he confirms in his own book), his commitment to marxism (which he admits in his book) and his determination in seeing the Islamization of our country. (his words and actions since taking office...all geared to help Islam ascend in this country. ) He has been aiding and abetting the enemy from his very first day in office when his very first call from the Oval Office was to the leader of HAMAS, the terrorist group and done everything he can to diminish America in the eyes of the world. He is setting us up for defeat. Any rational mind can see that.

        YOU are a fool for blindly following someone you know NOTHING about. But then again...he depends on the likes of you to give him 4 more years to help extinquish the light of America. Birds of a feather, and all. Thanks, traitor.

        • Keith

          10-4 and AMEN. I agree 100%. Stupid sheeple will always follow OBLAMMER. Otherwise they would have to take a good long look at thierselves and realize THEY are the biggest part of the problem.

        • SoulStraw

          Thanks for proving my point, Klansman screeminmeememe, that you ARE a lying racist bigot! Clots like you appear to demonize efforts to make Obama look like a traitor. Do they pause to consider this, or simply rush in blind for the opportunity to throw this president under a train?
          What kind of a man uses this term?

          I think people that end up using racist terms are, for the most part, uneducated and ignorant...aside from the obvious, racists.
          They are usually close-minded.
          Obvious, they just want a racist, bigoted white president who is a hard-core Christian who spews hate about religions NOT dominated by bigots like him and start wars like a crazy….Wait, even though he wasn’t a racist, bigot; we already had a president like that

          And show some respect to President Barack Hussein Obama...he is the PRESIDENT OF THE U. S. and A.

          Obama is NOT a Muslim; he is an OPPORTUNIST, period. He's proven this fact quite well over the past several years.
          how many times have you been told that you are the personification of racism and bigotry and when will it sink in?
          Yes, you should be, you traitor. Show some respect, you racist, bigot scum!

        • screeminmeeme

          SoulStraw....Geez...Get a grip. You're nearly incoherent. Hysterical people who yell invectives usually have nothing else worthwhile to say....and certainly nothing to refute anything I've said. I gave you facts, not emotional blather. Since you have no intelligent response to my comments, you use insults. But just sos you know...I"m don't offend easily so cool your heels. I never used one racist term in my post..just facts derived from Obama's own writing. Based on the structure and vocabulary used in your comment, I'll take a wild guess and say you're the racist here.

          I have absolutely NO RESPECT for OBAMA, in spite of his being the President. He stole the election by using his election cronies to commit voter fraud. He is a pathological liar and a thug who has given comfort and aid to our enemies. I'd like nothing better than to see him led out of the White House in handcuffs. It's a shame that the first black president is not a man young black kids could look up to and emulate. He's a rotten example who will go down in history as America''s worst leader.

        • SoulStraw

          I'm getting sick and tired for you cons talking about facts but post BS all the time! Deny racism all you want. That is your right. But what's pathetic is you mention Obama's own words? or just other people misinterption of them?

    • 357Ruger

      Excellent comment, I feel exacly as you do and believe me its all true what you say. I watched this guy from before he ran for President and has a dangerous idealogy of what we are or what we should be and wants to destroy this nation as he tells his view in interviews about the constitution and what it means, before he was President. People who vote should have some aptitude test because the american people are so dummed down it is pathetic. Obama hates this country and why American's can't see it, shows how neive and so trustful to an idiot who has con'd this nation with his stupid ideology of Hope and Change or Transformation B.S.! Yea transformation to bringing it down like a reckless demolition team destroying this nation along with the people. They are doing it piece by piece, bolt by bolt, and alot of people just don't see it!
      We need to get him and his wife out of the White House asap!

    • Myrtlelinder

      He is preparing the country for easy take over of foriegh forces and out people had better wake up. We have nobod i n the Government to defend us I am so afraid, but GOD is still there and is in control!!!

    • madog2

      Can't we get rid of this marxist/muslim imposter before he completely betrays America to the russians and chinese? For God's sake and the American people want the Government elected weasles put a stop to this forign born Chicago criminal?

  • Tommy D.

    We told Russia where our nukes were. We promised them we would take down our missle shield in eastern Europe. Now we are giving them islands that are part of Alaska. Now this article. Its almost like we are doing the opposite of what we should be doing.

    • Scott C in Spring Tx

      Putin obviously smart, Obama obviously stupid say native American.

    • Scott C in Spring Tx

      These islands have never been part of Alaska. Educate yourself before you speak. Miscommunication is a huge part of our problem in America. Both Russia and The United States have explored these islands but neither one has ever declared them as territory. The largest island is 88 miles north of Siberia Russia and over 300 miles west of the nearest Alaskan land mass. The more you know, the more you might understand. This story is bad reporting from it's very first word. We laugh at CSPAN, MSNBS, and other liberal media outlets for similar reporting. This is just as bad and gives our Democrat and Liberal counterparts something to laugh at on our side of the reporting issue. The issue about the islands is hogwash!

      • Scott C in Spring Tx

        By the way, the Islands have had Russians living on them for many, many decades. Non-issue. We would get into a stupid war if we tried to declare them as being ours. It would be like Russia taking over Catalina Island near San Diego.

    • Bob S

      Do you have any idea where those islands are? Have you looked them up on a map? They are closer to Russia than Cuba is to us. What would you do if Russia laid claim to Key West Florida? I am far more concerned about the Islam invasion of Europe than I am with the fledgling democracy of Russia. My wife voted in 2008 and will be voting in 2012 for Putin. There is a lot to like about Putin if you are a Russian. Of course, Russia has not spend 10 million dollars on political campaigns against Obama as our State Department has against Putin, but then he has a budget to worry about and Obama does not have that worry. But do just beleive me check with Dr. Petro of the University of Rhode Island.

  • Dean

    Obama is just a dumb A--. Are you people who voted for him happy with all the HOPE and CHANGE?

    • Stuart

      Dean asking your question to the numbnuts who voted for Ovomit falls on deaf ears. They will do the same again in November as their IQs are so low they can't comprehend whats going on around them and they are color blind seeing in black and white only.

    • Carol

      I couldn't agree with you more if I tried he is such a dump a-- he doesn't know where his a-- is.

  • Supertad108

    On a side note: As obama downsizes the US military could/is he building "his" promised civilian army with these funds?

    • Mutantone

      yes just where did his 100,000 man civilian force go any way? he already has that many but where are they? are they cleaning up poluted rivers? Helping devistated inner cities? where are they now?

    • Independant

      We need some more attention paid to his Brown Shirts. Out of 300 Mil citizens, we must have 200 Mil living under rocks.

  • Jonathan Gartner

    First of all Obama is a homosexual muslim crack smoker that is not a personal attack but, what he says in his books that everyone should read. He is anti-western civiliazation by his actions in the way he has treated long time allies like Britain and Israel. We should not disarm one bit although Obama would love to see it and if reelected he will have a chance to make it reality. As for Russian there economy is in worse shape than ours. This is sabre rattling in support of Iran and if you look at their forces they are lucky if they could put about 10% of their fleet to sea. This however is not a time to let down our guard we must build improve and honour our military something that Obama would not do according to his own words and actions.

    • Carol

      What you said is so right in so many ways but you said it for me because I wouldn't come up with the proper words Thank You so very much.

  • EdinNOLA

    Entered into the Congressional Record, in 1963 as the Communist goals (for the USA) summary (partial):

    #3. Develop the illusion that total (unilateral) disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength

    80% reduction in nuclear arms, giving part of Alaska to the Russians, spreading our troops all over the world and reducing the military budget by 500 million, or whatever absurd figure is being put forth! Sounds like what any good Communist would do as President of the USA.

  • Hanna

    I'd be willing to bet that the missiles he wants to rid from our arsenals will be given to Russia.

    With the 100,000 military reduction, there will be 100,000 more people out of work in the USA. . . . thanks to obummer. Let's see to it that obummer is out of a job soon.

    We all know now, that skin color is not an indicator of job qualification..

  • Nate M.

    In my opinion, the military is way overpaid. I couldn't imagine making over $88,000 per year as a junior captain in the USMC, but that's what I'd be making now if I were an O-3 over 8 with dependents and flight pay. My brother-in-law made $120,000 per year to sit at a Navy desk, and he's retired at a fairly young age making way more money than I could hope to make in this economy, and he'll draw his pension for probably thirty years. I'm not knocking the individuals who served our country, but we're a broke nation. We can't afford these overly generous salaries and pensions anymore. Maybe he could start by making retired military wait until 62 to draw their pensions. That sound reasonable given that we're headed for monetary collapse.

    • John C

      I certainly hope you're joking, Nate! You obviously haven't spent any time in the military to make statements as ignorant as those I just read on your post. How long did it take your brother-in-law to get to that income rating and what, exactly was his rank and job description?

      • Guest

        his brother in law had big lips and knee pads...

    • Republichic

      Nate: I do not consider the military overpaid when you consider in a split second and in the right place, your dead. My son is in Afghanistan as I write. He drives and operates the machinery/trucks that detect and disarm roadside bombs. Now, to say he is overpaid would be so untrue. Our military have always be equipped with what is needed to fight a war. Their pay scale is just another tool to assure we have men and women who are willing to risk their lives for our country. Now, as far as the budget, we have a President and Congress who added millions plus to payback their buddies, fund ridiculous programs, and assure their re-election. Can you envision that if our government had written a check to each taxpayer for a million, it still would not have been as much as the earmarks attached to the first stimulus. Just look at the activity Americans would have stirred up with that kind of money to invest in homes, appliances, vehicles, etc. I will never blame the military for our economy. We owe all the blame to the turkeys (mostly Democrats) in Congress and to our conspiring President, who has one goal and one goal only - bring America down.

      • Independant

        I understand what you are saying even though it's mixing some oranges with the apples. I do pray for your son and his buddies to return home safe and sound.

        • Republichic

          Thank you so much. He us scheduled to leave in March. We are holding our breath praying that nothing happens to him before he can get out of that God-forsaken country. This is his second tour. He spent over a year in Iraq.

    • Ralph

      So,back in 1941 when FDR mobilized the National Guard my brother was only getting $21.00 a month as a PFC,and so the
      military needs to get rid of do nothing desk jockeys in the Pentagon,and stop buying Fair Weather Flyer F-22 Raptors that have to hide inside their hangers anytime it rains wasteful spending since yes indeed the USA is broke and needs to really
      prioritize military spending all over as well. And,while at the same time carefully moniter the massive Russian & Communist
      Military Build Up and Procurement of new advanced weapons systems. As you can only cut the US Military so far or you once
      again end back up into same dangerously gutted US Military we had prior to WW 2 and on since then. And we all know how
      that worked out for the USA don't we now? It is said,"That unless we learn the lessons that history is trying to teach us then
      we are doomed to repeat them over and over again," and that also means Albert Einstein simple definition of insane, about
      "Doing the same dumb thing over and over again and each time expecting a different result".

  • bpitas

    I am by no means a fan of Obama - I think he's the worst thing ever to happen to the country. But read that article again and notice that the reason Russia says they are re-arming is because WE haven't be respecting sovereign countries rights. If we weren't over bullying people around in the middle east who don't want us there, we wouldn't need such a big military budget. If we just stuck to defending our homeland, as we're supposed to, we could *definitely* stand to cut some pork out of the military budget. Stop all foreign aid, and bring our troops home to support OUR borders -put America first!
    And we could *definitely* stand to lose 75% of our nukes. We already have enough to destroy the world 200x over - why would we possibly need that many? It's ridiculous how much power the military/industrial complex has in this country. Reduce the size of our military budget maybe down to twice that of China or Russia and we'll still have FAR more than we need, but we won't be wasting so much money that could be used to fix our crumbling infrastructure or create jobs.

    America's Most Corrupt Politicians http://godfatherpolitics.com/2887/americas-most-c...
    In the list of the top ten most admired men, was none other than President Barack Obama.
    Now Judicial Watch has released the Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians list. To no surprise of my own, President Barack Obama made Judicial Watch’s list along with the nation’s top cop, Attorney General Eric Holder.
    Judicial Watch’s Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians for 2011 are listed in alphabetical order:
    Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-AL)
    Former Senator John Ensign (R-NV)
    Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL)
    Attorney General Eric Holder (D)
    Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL)
    President Barack Obama (D)
    Rep. Laura Richardson (D-CA)
    Rep. David Rivera (R-FL)
    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
    Rep. Don Young (R-AK)
    Dishonorable Mentions for 2011 include:
    Former Senator John Edwards (D-NC)
    Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA)
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA)
    Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano (D)
    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY)
    Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY)
    Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius (D)

  • floyd

    Note that six of the ten list are Democrats and six of the eight listed on the dishonorable mention are Democrats. That’s 75% of those on both lists are Democrats. That has to say something for the overall mentality of the attitude of being above the law that permeates the Democratic Party.
    As for President Obama making this list and being listed as the most admired man in the country speaks volumes as to just how far American society has declined. Why would a nation of people admire one of the most corrupt politicians of the day and probably in the history of the American presidency?
    Obama has repeatedly defied the US Constitution and federal laws. He ignores the mandates of Congress and the general opinion of the American people and yet they turn around and admire him for it?

    • screeminmeeme

      Why would a nation of people admire one of the most corrupt politicians of the day and probably in the history of the American presidency?

      Answer: For the same reason they watch The Sopranos and choose The Godfather as their favorite movie. The would-be rebellious and defiant love the overtly rebellious and defiant. Birds of a feather and all.

  • floyd

    And then there has to be a lot said when the US Attorney General makes it to the Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians list. The man who is supposed to uphold the law turns out to be one of the biggest violators of the law. Every day, more Congressmen and women are calling for his immediate resignation and even more are signing on to a vote of no confidence and yet he sees himself as doing no wrong. Leaving Eric Holder in his role as US Attorney General is like placing a career pedophile in charge of a day care.
    I wish we could post Judicial Watch’s lists of the Ten Most and the Dishonorable Mention outside every polling booth in the nation so that it’s the last thing voters see before placing their votes. Just maybe, it would be enough to change a few votes this next year.

  • 1599

    Russia is too great of a nation to allow itself to sit on the sidelines. Putin is correct to be concerned about the West's open disregard for international law (Libya, for example) and the military buildup surrounding her. Maybe a stronger Russia will be a good counter balance against the corrupt neocons and one percenters who currently dominate the world.

    Oblama should be arrested for treason.

    • 1599

      Also for his miscalculations regarding Russia"s response to his agressive policies. Do we want another cold war?

  • Dr. Lawrence

    History is repeating itself. The USA downsized its military forces before and after WWI and WWII only to rush to rebuild them
    for the defense of the nation. Remember June 25, 1950? Our downsized military was caught unprepared for the Communist
    onslaught in Korea. Then, in the post-Korean War period (1954 to 1964) (a time of relative peace), our "leaders" ROPA-ed the military ( a reduction in forces) and once again when the call came to help South Vietnam, we had to resort to a draft to build up
    our military forces. But now when the war on terrorism has not yet ended, the wonderkids of the USA Leadership want to reduce the military. Obioulsy it is not for a savings but for a re-distribution of the income, I would suggest that they take a good look
    at history for their lesson. The world in on the edge of a financial calamity and the boys in DC want to play "monopoly"! Oye!

    • John Hand

      After The Great War, and then WW2, America had the luxury of having the span of two oceans to protect us while be built up our military. Next time, the oceans will not protect us.

  • PDavis

    I am appalled at what is happening to this country. What I am even more appalled at is that no one is doing anything to stop Obama and what he's doing. Everyone just keeps giving way to Obama and everything that he wants to do. Where is the uproar that should be out there protesting what's being done to this country? Where is the Tea Party that was so strong last year and protesting? Surely we still have laws that can stop the complete dismantling of this country and the blatant disregard for our Constitution. I constantly hear how he is just constantly stepping around the Constitution, doesn't follow the lawful procedures, etc. and I don't hear a peep from anyone. I know the liberal media is keeping a lid on a lot of what's going on but surely there are plenty of other ways to get the truth out as to what is going on. I think a lot of people are just holding on hoping that when election time comes we can vote him out but I'm not too sure that is going to happen. If the GOP candidates don't quit acting like a bunch of morons and taking each other down instead of focusing on the issues and the wrongs that Obama is doing, we as a country are doomed.

    • Independant

      Majority of our citizens see life through the boob-tube. They are educated politically and economically through watching ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX. Yes FOX gives a little more, yet far from enough for the average citizens to see what's going on. I know people who only watch the Networks for their understanding of what's going on in Government. They think things are great except for the rich Republicans who are causing our jobs to go overseas. Yes, some Repubs along with most Dems have driven our jobs overseas, but they have no clue as to how their Representatives voted on issues. As you see I am an Independent, I don't vote straight ticket. However, it's been a long time and a different state (Md in 70s) when I voted for a Democrat.

  • John Hand

    The answer to 'why' Obama is doing what he does lies in the last chapters of the Bible. In the end times, Israel will stand alone against all enemies. In order for this to happen, America must be rendered ineffective. Obama is fulfilling prophecy. But let's not leave Hillary out of the picture. She is right there with Obama, wanting to render the USA gutless, and turning all power over to the UN.

  • 71cijug

    obama didn't set us up, we did.

    We did not acknowledge the damage done do our "readiness" or ability to make ready when we steadfastly refused to adopt any form of industrial policy in this country. We have been on this course for more than thirty years.

    Our basic industries, extraction, steel, machine-tool, arguably automobile, are crippled where they exist at all. We do not have the capacity to re-arm and are at the mercy of other nations, each with their own self-interests, to produce war materiel. Few other countries possess the depth of natural resources the United States has, but Russia and China are among them.

    We are in no position to respond.

    History does indeed repeat itself way too often. When our enemies are building up their military forces, that should send us a signal that in reducing our military WILL invite destruction to our own military and our homeland. Obama and his allies must be sent into the unemployment lines this November 2012 along with the rinos and his entire administration. Obama, his executive orders, ignoring the US Constitution and freedoms that we have had is a telling sign that he and his entire administration is a grave and present danger to the survival of the United States of America. People had better wake up and act before this election is over this November before it is too late.

  • Tom

    Every thing Obama does is wrong and every thing he says is a lie. He must go, now or November at the latest.

    • Jack Forrest

      Tom your 100% right on...I know how I'm voting next election...let's take it to the poll's and get rid of him. Let him make his living singing with a "rock" band...like Alcatraz....

    Where is any outcry from those big weenies in Congress? Traitor Boehner just bends over and lets Obama give it good. A good percentage of this problem is the Congress sitting silently by and saying Nothing. If Obama gets another four years, we better hope the GOP is the majority in Congress & Senate, without Boehner, McConnel, McCain, Graham, and other notable RINOs. Want to get sick...just imagine four years of Obama, Pelosi as Speaker and dirt bag scum Reid. Excuse me while I go vomit.

    Screw the START treaty as written and use the escape clause.

    Just another example of obama and many of those in his "Administration" (aka: Reich), taking us to total control by those in DC. Unless the American people wake up and see exactly what he is doing, they may as well get ready to have numbers tattooed on their body just like Hitler did the Jews. obama is not above doing this, and neither are his cohorts and thugs. His hatred of the USA, our Constitution, and Americans is starting to surface more each and every day.

    Obama has nothing but contempt for America , her people and her military . His sole ambition is to destroy America by any means possible in order that HE can make it over in his beloved COMMUNIST ideals . He has his cadre of backers , Harry Reid , Maxine Waters , Charlie Rangel, Nancy Pelosi , Eric Holder and yes , even Hillery Clinton , to assist him and I suspect amore than a few rino's . Time for American's to wake up and vote the bunch out of office asap . You make wake up to Communist State of America if you don't

  • Peter

    Stand by,... Russia and China will be invading us to take possession of our resources as payment for our bad debt they hold. But you might think that they'd be worried about the fact that so many Americans are armed and know how to use them. You'd be wrong. They are not worried, because Hillary and the UN are going to take away our arms. Just sayin'

    Take a lesson from Putin, you dumbo! There's no doubt about it, we must get rid of the anti-American and illegal president NOW! Will somebody up there in Washington please get the IMPEACHMENT going NOW before its too late. Also what must happen in the next election is to get rid of the Democratically controlled Senate. That dingy harry reid has no brains to be the head of that body. So if we can get a majority of new Republicans in place of several liberal dumbocrats, we could be okay even if that Kenyan wins another term in office, heaven forbid!!

  • Chad

    Maybe because Russia currently has a military budget about the same size as The Boy Scouts.., perhaps this will bring them up to normal nation levels. Their past giant military is what broke their country yrs ago.

    "The West (which includes the US) and their openness to disregard international law in intervening in other sovereign countries"....
    Hasn't anyone noticed that this pizzes off every Nation ... BlowBack is what we get.
    This article has fear mongering all over it and, sure pops up at a convenient time.

      So, Chad are you KGB or one of Barak Obama's white house stooges as Putin is rapidly modernizing the entire Russian Military and adding brand new high tech weapons,new tanks that match our 30 year old MI-A Gen Abrhams MBT while we donot even have a replacement for our 30 year old MBT and very clearly your not even aware Russia hides huge  portions of its real military budget
      inside of other departments of the Russian Government! Go Away You Agent of Deliberate Misinformative Agent.

  • PecosBob

    Americans all over the Country need to take action! Call and write to your Congressman and Senators, and most importantly we need to vote this SOB traitor out. I could live with another Jimmy Carter or another Bill Clinton, but...Obama is truely unAmerican. Obama is taking away our pride and courage without our consent. He is destroying the heart of the American Heritage. Obama is turning us against each other. The United States don't need change. Those who want change should leave the U.S simple as that. We are not a perfect Country, but can anyone tell me what government is better than ours? Obama I pledge to do my part to have you ousted out of office come November. Don't tread on me, Buck-o.

    Russia would have a long way to go before coming close to us.

    And of course, the opposite is true: we'd have a long way to go disarming before we'd come close to Russia.

    In 2013 our arrangement with Russia for uranium from their weapons expires. Uranium is a scarce metal used to generate our nuclear energy plants. Word in the financial world is that it won't be renewed, meaning we're screwed. China is buying up all it can of the scarce metals that are in items we use every single day. And Obama is killing availability to what we already have in resources like coal and natural gas.

    Putin Arms as Obama Disarms? I guess that proves that Putin isn't an idiot. The same can't be said for Obama.

  • Robert

    What would you expect from a man who has nothing but contempt for everything that the United States of America stands for. His sole goal in life is to destroy America as we know it. And to do this he first must disarm all Americans. This is his agenda, And If We the People do not stand up and stop this man, no matter what it takes then maybe we do not deserve to live in this great country any longer.
    At one time America Was the Land of the Free and The Home of the Brave. The way it looks right now a better saying would be the land of the used to be free and The Home of the Cowardly Sheep. How much longer will America stand for people like this? Where did they come from, and why have we as a people allowed them take over.
    From the looks of things America's time in the sun is about over, no one cares anymore, and when people stop caring there is no hope or future.

    Putin may have more insight on the UN Agenda 21/New World Order than anyone gives him credit for. Read his comments with that thought in mind... interesting twist on the rhetoric. Given that O and many other world leaders are buying into the UN "sustainable communities/wetlands/etc." rot, Putin's stance isn't agressive, it's defensive. Why can't we have somebody in the WH who's got a brain?

  • Colorado Joe

    How I long for the wisdom of past great leaders. Wasn't it Teddy Roosevelt who said "speak softly and carry a big stick". It's too bad the people of this country are being suckered into the snake oil salesmanship of this administration. Politicians are being bought and bribed. Even states like Georgia who decided to drop their challenge to Obama's legitimacy. Once dropped, Georgia received an 8 billion federal grant. I only hope and pray there are enough decent people left to stop this lawlessness and destructive path this president is leading us on. Don't be surprised if he gets reelected that websites like this will quickly be banned and the only comments deemed acceptable by this administration will be "Heil Obama".

  • Robert

    China is building up it's militray, N.Korea is still trying to make a nuke work, Iran is working on a nuke, now Russia is starting up again with it's military hardware buildup. What's Obama doing? Having a going out of business sale for the U.S. He wants to get rid of 80% of our nuclear stockpile. The government over the years have closed military bases in the U.S. and abroad. I liked it better when we had SAC bases in almost every state in the Union. This president has got to be voted out of office in November. This nation can not take another 4 years of this idiot in office. We all now know what it's like to have a "radical" as president. Return sanity to this country as well as National Security for all.

  • Ithamar

    Any politician or political pundit who speaks of getting rid of the national debt by reducing the military is an agent of misinformation. The entire military could be eliminated and the deficit spending would still be growing still adding billions to the national debt. When more than 75% of government spending goes to social welfare programs, any talk of regaining economic stability that does not focus on welfarism is being intentionally deceptive.
