Obama Promises Unilateral Disarmament
Topic: Politics
In 2007, Barack Obama spoke before the Caucus for Priorities, which proposes re-routing defense spending to social causes.  He promised,

"As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus for Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.  First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq.  I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning -- and as president, I will end it.

"Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.  I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.  I will not weaponize space.  I will slow our development of future combat systems, and I will institute an independent defense priorities board to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

"Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons.  To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material, and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.  You know where I stand."

In other words, Obama plans to gut US defenses.  If the US ceases to defend itself, it will soon be overwhelmed; then who else would step up to defend the world against Totalitarianism?  France?
