2010 Nuclear Posture Review established the Administration’s goal to
set conditions that would allow the United States to safely adopt a
policy of making deterrence of nuclear attack the sole purpose of U.S.
nuclear weapons. Although we cannot adopt such a policy today, the new
guidance re-iterates the intention to work towards that goal over time.”
other words, “nuclear deterrence” is not now and has not been the
policy of the Obama administration going back to and including their
2010 Nuclear Posture Review as well.
Since “nuclear deterrence”
is not now and has never been the Obama administration’s nuclear weapons
policy from the get-go, then by default this means that offensive
first-strike strategic nuclear war fighting is now and has always
been the Obama administration’s nuclear weapons policy.
This policy will also be pursued and augmented by means of “integrated non-nuclear strike options.” (Ibid).
the entire 2013 NPR and Obama’s recent nuclear arms “reduction”
proposals must be understood within this context of the United States
pursuing an offensive, strategic first-strike nuclear war-fighting
capability as augmented by non-nuclear strike forces:
a comprehensive review of our nuclear forces, the President has
determined that we can ensure the security of the United States and our
Allies and partners and maintain a strong and credible strategic
deterrent while safely pursuing a one-third reduction in deployed
nuclear weapons from the level established in the New START Treaty.”

we know now for sure that all the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD)
systems that Obama is currently in the process of deploying in Europe,
Asia, and the United States, on land, at sea and perhaps in Outer Space
are designed to provide the United States with a strategic,
offensive, first strike nuclear war fighting capability against Russia
and China and Iran and North Korea and Syria for starters. The latter
three because the United States has taken the position that they are not
in compliance with their obligations under the Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Treaty: “…the United States has relied increasingly on
non-nuclear elements to strengthen regional security architectures,
including a forward U.S. conventional presence and effective theater
ballistic missile defenses…” Id. at 9.
the United States government is currently preparing to launch, wage
and win an offensive, first-strike strategic nuclear war against
Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and Syria.
All the rest is just palaver. Including by our Dissembler-in-Chief. An “honors” graduate of Harvard Law School.
