Obama amputates our nuclear arms
By: Charles Krauthammer
Under President Obamas new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty, explained Gates, then the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.
Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up-to-date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)
However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT noncompliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.
This is quite insane. Its like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets hanged or 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.
Apart from being morally bizarre, the Obama policy is strategically loopy. Does anyone believe that North Korea or Iran will be more persuaded to abjure nuclear weapons because they could then carry out a biological or chemical attack on the United States without fear of nuclear retaliation?
The naivete is stunning.

Saddam’s WMDs and Connection to Terrorism

Lots of good commentary.
BTW Iranian man arrested for molesting/fondling girls between nine and fourteen in a swimming pool in South America. Turns out to have diplomatic status! Good grief.
Having seen Zimmerman testifying on TV, I remembered Obama’s claim that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin.
In fact Zimmerman’s features very much resemble Obama’s and I wonder if someone with graphics skills could put together a combines photo of Zimmerman, Obama and Trayvon in that order and ask the question of who looks like Obama’s son.
If you do please post it here with your comments.
One of these men could be the father of Trayvon if he had a son, the other has a genuine birth cerificate. Can you tell which one?
Good one, your jest ( guess) is as good as any other, if not better!
I can’t believe that the control of what is said about Obama in the MSM is so strict , that some writer/broadcaster does not make a big break on the issue of Obama’s proof of birth documentation.
What is scarey is that so few rag writers want the Pulitzer? Maybe they are actually afraid for their lives? One wonders what threat is being used.
thank you Fred Nerks!
As far as a stranglehold on free press and speech:
FYI the Google Browser “CENSORED/HID” this photo making you to click on a holder, then asking for it to be shown in a separate window.
Had to access our FR site with Internet Explorer to immediately see the photo.
Also Google is blocking Google Blogs from activating if you come in with Internet Explorer rather than Google’s browser!
Luckily for long time Bloggers, they offer the old style option if you arrive via the Google Browser.
the new Google style may seem simpler and easier for THEM as they claim but NOT really for users.
I have been partly off the Internet for about a week but receiving teh usual severalhundred Emails so am a bit off center on where I saw something.
In this case the Recent “gift” of about $770 MILLION to a close relative of Nancy Pelosi as a loan for a failing Green Energy company he/she owns.
This is a very notable sum and event I cannot find it on FR nor via Search on Google. I have a vague recollection that it may have been a Lucy post.
Anyone remember this with a link? Please be so kind as to post it.
This is what I meant.
The Solar thing just got a little more interesting.......REALLY! The Tonopah Solar company in Harry Reid’s Nevada is getting a $737 million loan from Obama’s DOE. The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanent workers. That’s costing us just $16 million per job. One of the investment partners in this endeavor is Pacific Corporate Group (PCG). The PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi who is the brother to Nancy’s husband. Just move along folks.....nuthin goin on here.
I’m not real impressed with either browser, I use Opera myself. I was a long-time user of FireFox, but Version 4 was so horrid that I switched over to Opera and haven’t looked back.
Firefox 4.0 was so awful, as was their support, that I’ll never go back no matter what they’ve fixed. Until the next release, Mozilla would only offer elaborate workarounds and trial-and-error troubleshooting that mostly involved uninstallation, registry tweaks, then reinstallation in a do-loop that doesn’t end until you stumble upon settings that are somewhat stable. No thanks. If the program is that unready for primetime, I’m not going to spend my evenings providing free troubleshooting for them!
I run into websites occasionally that aren’t real compatible with Opera but it’s worth having a browser that isn’t a clunky RAM-hog whose main function is to throw advertisements in your face constantly.
We gotta get this psycho out before our elections are all like Putin’s.
In case you missed any of this.
I just read that Firefox has come out with a new version. 11 ???
Sounds like they’ve put some work into it-as well they should! But they sure lost a lot of people with that rotten 4.0.
Oh, I’ve been “connecting dots” and taking names for years....
Beyond that, I’m in EMCON.
I know how trite this sounds because it would take a majority of GOP House members who could actually find their scrotals with both hands (!!), but that type of rip-off is directly Impeachable under the Rules of the House and Senate.
I tweeted it.
Good for you! Let us kow what comes back at you. If anything.
The source is often questionable but seems to always provide a situation of “where there’s smoke there’s fire” and worth a second look for more than just the title
Thanks for the ping!
PRAYER REQUEST - PLEASE PASS THIS ON EVERYWHERE.
could have copied the text here but it would lose the visual presentation found on Alan’s site emphasizing the simplicity of these few words.
Amen. Thank you for sharing, FARS.
Hospitals Prepare for NATO Attack, Perform Dirty Bomb Response Drills (Chicago)
Suburban hospitals are preparing for a worst-case scenario during next month’s NATO summit, in a FOX Chicago News exclusive. (snip)
Dr. Temple said Wednesday’s dirty bomb scenario had been worked out in conjunction with the Secret Service and the federal Dept of Homeland Security.
U.S. authorities are preparing in the days ahead to deploy black-suited federal agents in and around federal buildings downtown.
They’ll set up checkpoints at entrances to the area and at individual buildings. From there to Evanston Hospital, where a young intern tried on a protective hood this evening, the watchword is be prepared.
If something does happen, God forbid, we’ll be ready to do something about it, Dr. Michael George said.
While the feds said there is no specific, credible threat of an attack inside the United States, they did warn Thursday that a so-called “lone wolf” terrorist might try to mark the first anniversary of the killing of Osama Bin Laden next week. That anniversary comes on May 2.
They’re afraid that a rogue terroritst might take advantage of the cesium found in old nuclear plant waste leftover from the Cold War and use it in a suitcase bomb, or a dirty bomb like it.
Thank you, Velveeta

NEED HELP PLEASE!
In trying to conform to Google Chrome which is now the only real way to access Google Blogspot.com and retain the AntiMullah address, Alan inadvertently put a “redirect” setting in Google Chrome setting it to redirect to www.antimullah.com (intending it to work in reverse).
As you can see, if you try to access antimullah.com, it comes up with a silly info that something cool is coming soon. Alan is setting up a termporary site to provide a message as to why AntiMullah does not come up nor does it under the Google direct link of noiri.blogspot.com (whihc tries to sent it to antimullah.com which was never set up as a web site.
Does anyone know or can discover how in Blogger or Google Chrome settings, teh “redirect” to another site can be cancelled, removed or undone.
Please either reply by Freepmail or send solutions directly firstname.lastname@example.org it is virtuallly impossible to get hold of anyone at Google to correct this. I have spent many hours trying to restore to previous settings BUT to no avail.
Gogle does not appear to have they way to do this posted in their help sections. Or not easily found.
All and any help would be greatly apreciated.
Best is to avoid Google Chrome. I actually would like to doscover how to block everything Google.
Blogger not Chrome is the problem. My site is being “redirected” and I cannot stop it doing that - so there is no AntiMullah Home Page
Google and Blogger help is useless and unrespopnsive
As you may have gathered Google ate up Alan’s AntiMullah main page by not having a way to undo teh setti ng of redirecting it to elsewhere. So, a temporary work around was to export the Main page, create a new blog and import the old one.
The link above should be available for new posts.
Would you be so kind as to try the link and see if it gets you to AntiMullah (version 2)
thanks for lettin me know.
Works for me.
Right to it.
Thanks for the link!
Thanks to everyone. In the meantime, with help from Bloggers, the original site has been fixed so all links, new or previous, all work.
the silver lining to all this is the new site Page with the Persian Gulf Medal. We certainly all know someone who served there.
Alan and I will see how best to “deploy” the new page.
Thanks you, FARS.
Thanks for the ping!
This article has been posted by Alan to both the original Antimullah (noiri.blogspot.com or www.antimullah.com ) the link below points to the new page set up when the original temporarily looped around.
Everything now works but you might like the simple layout of the newer one and the Persian Gulf Medal for our vets.
Lots of good reads and a couple of MUST reads
THANKS FOR THE PINGS.
Thanks for the ping!
In case you missed this! We get NOTHING in return - NOTHING!
Thanks for the ping!
