    Democrats are proposing in Congress that the United States give up the option for a nuclear first strike – for any reason, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

    The policy for decades deliberately has been one of “calculated ambiguity.” It stemmed from a Cold War era in which the U.S. and NATO faced “numerically superior” Soviet and Warsaw Pact conventional forces in Europe, explains a document prepared by the Congressional Research Service.

    “At the time, the United States not only developed plans to use nuclear weapons on the battlefield to disrupt or defeat attacking tanks and troops, but it also hoped that the risk of a nuclear response would deter the Soviet Union from initiating a conventional attack. This is not because the United States believed it could defeat the Soviet Union in a nuclear war, but because it hoped the Soviet Union would know that the use of these weapons would likely escalate to all-out nuclear war, with both sides suffering massive destruction.”

    That policy of ambiguity has been continued, with even the Obama administration promising that the U.S. “would only consider the use of nuclear weapons in extreme circumstances,” far short of a promise never to use them first

    We will, right after we launch a first strike.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    What is it with these leftist freaks?! Just warm and fuzzy bullshit. Like exit strategies, rules of engagement, they always want our enemies to be fully informed on what we'll do next.

    This sounds like info that our Defense Department's dirty tricks boys plant into U.S. press-releases periodically. Project confusion to generate confusion, hesitation, over-confidence, etc., in our adversaries.

    China's never been in a sea-battle. And Russia lost their only one-or-two to Japan.

    China's only battle-strategy throughout history is to attempt to overwhelm by sheer numbers. The U.S. is saying: " Go on, guys. Gather around in one place. There's room for everybody. "

    We're the only tyrannosaurus rex on the gameboard.
