Skip to comments.Merkel miffed at Barack Obama and David Cameron 'nuclear war game'
Posted on 03/25/2014 9:51:50 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
World leaders played an interactive nuclear war game designed to test their responses to a terrorist atomic "dirty bomb" attack that threatened the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
David Cameron joined Barack Obama, Angela Merkel and Xi Jinping and other world leaders to play a "nukes on the loose" war game to see how they would cope with a terrorist nuclear attack.
The German chancellor grumbled at being asked to play games and take tests with the Prime Minister, US and Chinese presidents around a table with dozens of heads of state at a nuclear summit in The Hague.
Her complaints were overruled because Mr Obama was keen on the idea and in on the surprise.
In the war game, played out by actors in a series of short films, a terrorist attack with an atomic "dirty bomb" takes place in the financial heart of an unnamed but Western metropolis. "It could be the City of London, or Wall Street, Milan or anywhere", summit leaders were told.
As the scenario unfolded, it emerged that the terrorists are from an unidentified global terror network and they have stolen nuclear material from an unidentified country that had poorly secured its radiological and nuclear stockpiles.

we are playing nuke war games with China, so they can see how our president and national security systems react?
“Mr Obama was keen on the idea and in on the surprise...”
Limbaugh theorem proven.
“...Send in the clowns. ...”
Send in??? They’re ALREADY in.
Remove the Clowns should be our motto.
Mutual support network for curtailing such liberties as remain IMO.
Obama would rather have played golf, but will settle for war games.
The head clown was there.
Oh Lord...just take me now.
“unidentified global terror network”
The Tea Party.
Obama: Whoops, did I do that?

I actually have some experience in Pol-Mil Wargaming from years ago both in Checkmate and the Center for Low Intensity Conflict. The first, absolutely first, rule is never directly involve the head of state. He or she can watch but should not become directly involved. When one does become involved it lets an audience see how you think and what you would do. This goes all the way back to Kennedy and his first Pol-Mil game that was done at Camp David.
This will give him something to do the next vacay he takes and there is a rain day or something.
Man, this guy is lost like a ball in tall grass. Frightening!
It wouldn't surprise me if she really gets p****** and walks out.
Obama loved it as he declared Martial Law and proclaimed himself President for life!
Do you want to play a game?
Who was behind the imaginary plot, white Anglo-Saxon Protestants again?
Obama: Whoops, did I do that?
It’s not my fault, it must be because of Global Warming, The Republicans, George Bush, The NRA, The Christens or Racism.
Best post of the day, month and possibly year.
God help us all.
Merkel miffed at Urkel.
Smartest man in the room.../s
Merkel irked at Urkel.
“Obama and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands sharing a light moment ... “
Queen Maxima: “That John Hamm—`Don Draper’ on `Madmen’—he is `hunky’, no?”
Obama: “Yeah! You got that right, girlfriend! Mmmm mmm mmmmmm!”
"Did I do that?"
CNN’s immediate response was that there is no evidence terrorism was involved.
Let me get this straight: The point of the “game” was to learn the spontaneous reactions of various world leaders to a nuclear attack, but Obastard was “in on the surprise?”
So, IOW, he cheated.
Did the videogame crash as the Obamacase Hussien’s Un-Affordable Care site did???
‘The first, absolutely first, rule is never directly involve the head of state. He or she can watch but should not become directly involved. When one does become involved it lets an audience see how you think and what you would do”
is such common sense but I wouldn’t have thought of it.
However one would hope the so called leader of your country would be smart enough to think of it
thank you for pointing this out
"You made a BINGO!"
Was Reggie Love on the bus ? :-)
Speaking of Reggie Love, if you type his name up on Google, this is what appears in the right hand side :
Reginald L. Love served as the special assistant and personal aide, commonly referred to as body man for taking care of the president's needs, to United States President Barack Obama. Wikipedia
Born: June 21, 1981 (age 32)
Party: Democratic Party
Position: Wide receiver
It is interesting to note, that nowhere does it mention that he plays football :-) LOL
What idiot’s idea was this? Are these people so lacking in any amount of backbone, that nobody said, “This is stupid. Where are the grown ups?”, and just left?
Right before a horde of incoming MIRVs overwhelms your defenses.
Soooo.... Obama forced everyone to play a surprise game that he already had the answers to and he won. Cuz he’s s’smart.
He’s like the kid at the birthday party that everybody hates.
Honest to God. Are there any adults left????
As John F'n Kerry might say, this concept is soooo "20th Century" our primary concern now should be Global Thermo-Environmental Change ...
This latest action is positively stupefying in its utter naivete.
Hope these pictures get back to the grifter in China.
Sounds like Merkel’s the only adult head of state in the West.
Great, so when it happens for real Obama will charge into the situation room and says I know how this ends.
I wouldn’t let Obama run a game of Harpoon without being afraid of him attacking his own side. As for comment, I have come to the conclusion that all of the professionals from the 80’s have either left or been pushed aside.
Jerking around while Iran’s centrifuges keep spinning, gas and food prices skyrocket, people by the millions are losing private healthcare, and the culture deteriorates with more infanticide and celebrated perversion.
May the Lord Jesus have mercy on His remnant.
Here is his main National Security Advisor for Europe. A disarmament wonk. Also, notice the timeline, started working for Bill Clinton in the 90’s,after the Cold War was over.
