Obama: I'm Concerned About a Loose Nuke Being Detonated in Manhattan
Weekly Standard ^ | March 25, 2014 | By Daniel Halper

Posted on 03/25/2014 9:23:31 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Romney still wrong about Russia, says Obama.

Speaking at a brief news conference in the Hague, President Obama said he's more worried about a loose nuke being detonated in Manhattan than he is about Russia:

"With respect to Mr. Romney's assertion that Russia is our number one geopolitical foe, the truth of the matter is that America has a whole lot of challenges," said the president.

"Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neigbors, not out of strength, but out weakness.

"Ukraine has been a country which Russia had enormous influence for decades, since the break-up of the Soviet Union, and we have considerable influence on our neighbors, we generally don't need to invade them in order to have a strong cooperative relationship with them. The fact that Russia felt compelled to go in militarily and laid bear these violations of internationl law indicates less influence not more.

"So my response then continues to be what I believe today, which is: Russia's actions are a problem. They don't pose the number one national security threat to the United States. I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan," said Obama.

the solution is to outlaw and ban Islamic practice in the United States , and end all moslem immigration. That would be a good starting point , to prevent the Manhattan eventuality

Considering it could likely be a nuke suitcase bomb made in Russia.. were such a thing to happen.. God forbid. Ouch.

Well, at least De Blasio wouldn’t have to worry about snow removal complaints anymore.

“I’m Concerned About a Loose Nuke Being Detonated in Manhattan,” says Obama at the 9th hole. “Now excuse me, got another round to play.” “But Romney was wrong about me.”

Dear Supreme Dictator of the World:

That so called loose nuke you are worried about will actually be "loosed" from a Soviet or Red Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile fired from Soviet or Red Chinese territory or a Russian nuke boomer sub. Don't worry about Omar and his suit case. Worry about Igor or Poo Chung firing off one of their nukes. You have destroyed all of ours, thus we cannot respond.

Duncehead has no idea what a geopolitical foe is. Russia is in fact the largest. China would be the only possible alternative. Not a terrorist with a nuke.

A loose nuke taken from the Ukraine. Which, btw, we promised to help protect in return for disarming them.

I'm just as concerned about one going off near Charleston SC.

So, he can only worry about one geopolitical issue at a time? Aren’t both important enough to merit consideration?

Biggest U.S. strategic foreign policy concerns:

1. Chinese domination of Japan and the Pacific rim and its commerce routes.

2. An emergent Russia as Great Power and an growing domination over the Baltic States, the Ukraine, the former Eastern Bloc, western European countries (especially Germany).

3. A consortium of Muslim powers becoming organized, well-managed, and getting their hands on the powers of the mid-sized or large sized nation-state.

Total BS propaganda piece to solicit something from the sheeple. We have numerous nuclear sensors on the ground, in the air, and in space. There is ZERO chance anyone could move a nuke without detection.

Beyond dumb to say that. So like him, though, and he gets a pass every time.

Wonder if it was a freudian slip about something he actually knows, a missing airliner, as only one example?

It’s just part of making you go “Huh?” when he says, at the same time, he wants his NSA to stop collecting phone call records. And on that point, he claims to need Congress to approve an order that he is empowered to make.
