Colin Gray Quote

“American strategic [nuclear] forces do not exist solely for the purpose of deterring a Soviet nuclear threat or attack against the U.S. itself. Instead, they are intended to support U.S. foreign policy.”

~ Colin Gray

and now we talk of using them preemptively... essentially pushing those without to go out and acquire their own... while many here at home are (literally) praying for Armageddon... when will these children whom we are letting play at running our government ever grow up!

"No one can deny that a state has the right, if not the bounden duty, to meet threats of agression by appropriate military force. Since international law clearly recognizes the right to self defence in the face of clear and present danger, the question here is simply one of capability, and not one of morality." From a nuclear weapons policy manual I read while in ROTC. Scary.

The war monger's notion that might makes right supports and empowers the imperialists' foreign policy.

I am reminded that US dollars are no longer backed by gold or silver but by plutonium. 'We deal in lead, partner.'
