Are there tons of people — Obama included — who can’t stand the fact that we are a dominant military superpower in the world?

This statement was made at the closing of his Nuclear Security Summit: “Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower:

  • There are folks who believe that he is not really weakening our military. From what i understand, it's all a facade to make it seam that way to other countries. I can't even say where i got that info.

  • Once again, balance. Collectively, countries that use terror and oppression as a means to rule are a superpower as well. To everything in this world there is a balance and so yes, There needs to be an America that is a superpower as well.

  • It's a fascade to fool the pacifists who elected him. His treaty with Russia won't get ratified but he can claim he tried.

  • Your messiah Reagan proposed exactly what he is proposing. You just don't like to let them pesky facts-y and truth-y get in the way of your daily lies. Reagan wanted a world where nuclear weapons did not exist and to reduce the arsenal by 30% too.

    Maybe he will even get another Nobel peace prize for it... Or did the first one count for this, since the first one was about his vision?  But then should they take the first one away because of the Afghanistan troop surge? hrmmmmm.....  Ohh that liberal funny stuff again..

  • It would be nice if we were the most HUMANE Nation in the world. Personally ,knowing that we have bigger,more lethal weapons and armies is not a real comforting thought to me. It sounds like we can crush other countries more easily. Is that a good thing? What would Jesus say?
