Nuclear Naivete

Barack Obama is turning out to be quite the ingenue.

Just after North Korea defied his threats of aggressive diplomacy, and convening an emergency buffet at the United Nations, by test launching for the purpose of eventually delivering a nuclear payload (or to put into orbit a satellite for the purpose of broadcasting Dear Leader's karaoke stylings, if you believe the Godless communists), Mr Obama called for "a world without nuclear weapons." It was as if he hadn't been paying attention.

"I am not naive," he said.

He is naive.

The history of mankind, as I see it, has been and will forever be a history of conflict, of conquering or being conquered.

Throughout history, once a Rubicon of weapons development has been crossed, that bridge has been burned.
Weapons have become obsolete not because we all learned how to sing in three part harmony, but because newer, more efficient methods of killing lots of people were devised.

This will not change simply because we have some starry-eyed dreamer in the White House.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcasting of Dear Leader reciting patriotic messages to his utterly destitute subjects.
