Ronald Reagan, one of the most important presidents in American history, advanced a defense policy based on “peace through strength,” and “reducing nuclear dangers.” In so doing, he dramatically altered the United States’ approach to dealing with the Soviet nuclear threat.
President Reagan’s successful policies involved not the elimination of all nuclear weapons, but the simultaneous modernization of all legs of America’s nuclear Triad in a manner that enhanced national security and strategic stability, while significantly reducing the size of the strategic nuclear arsenals of both the U.S. and the Soviet Union. He further enhanced America’s deterrent by deploying nuclear cruise missiles (SLCMs) on naval ships, and medium-range nuclear missiles and new nuclear artillery in Europe.
Redacted Tonight host Lee Camp says he is unsure that President Donald Trump has the discipline to maintain a peace deal with North Korea, but notes that his opponents would rather face nuclear war than give him credit.
We’ve got the uranium, the know-how and a sudden desire to be respected by our nearest neighbour.
These Clarion videos from 2016 serve as a reminder as to why we in the West should fear a nuclear Iran.
My vote is to make Iran the world’s first nuclear carpet bombing recipient.
Leave not a trace of their civilization.
In a recent closed meeting, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, said the nuclear deal was a “terrible mistake,” adding that the Iran nuclear deal permitted Iran to maintain certain key facets of its nuclear program. Cohen slammed the Obama Administration’s decision to lift sanctions on Iran, arguing that it significantly increased aggression by Iran.
Anyone with two brain cells knows that.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un pledged his commitment to ‘denuclearization’ and to meet U.S. officials, China said on Wednesday after his meeting with President Xi Jinping, who promised China would uphold its friendship with its isolated neighbour.
This could end up as a remarkable turn of events that pivots human history away from its first-ever true nuclear showdown. Or it could be total smoke and mirrors from the leader of the hermit kingdom, who’s trying to play us all for fools. The truth is likely somewhere in between.
Putin said the weapons include a nuclear-powered cruise missile, a nuclear-powered underwater drone and new hypersonic missile that have no equivalent elsewhere in the world. He said the creation of the new weapons has made NATO’s U.S.-led missile defense “useless,” and means an effective end to what he described as Western efforts to stymie Russia’s development.
While the left is quick to blame President Trump on the matter of a nuclear North Korea, including Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and those in Hollywood, Kim Jung-Un has been collaborating and testing nuclear weapons and missiles long before Trump entered the White House. They omit the fact that in the last 8 years, Obama did nothing….NOTHING.
Mark your calendars for Jan. 16. That’s the day you can learn how to survive a nuclear blast.
Before dealing with the question and Hyten’s answer, let’s clear away some underbrush. The president is the commander-in-chief. Period. If he gives an order, and is determined to carry it out, no number of generals can stop him. A general officer holds a commission signed by the president. If he voices his objections and is still told to do it he has two options. Resign or do it.
Air Force Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, said at the Halifax International Security Forum in Halifax, Nova Scotia, that he would tell Trump he couldn’t carry out an illegal strike, CBS News reported.
Trump has never – never – threatened to use nuclear weapons. North Korea, on the other hand, has repeatedly said they would nuke the US homeland and its territories. Hyten is obviously a political operator and is probably going to be unemployed soon.
It must be tough when you have to come up with a new way of smearing President Trump every day, but the editors and reporters of the Associated Press are up to the task. Today’s headline: “Could anyone stop Trump from launching nukes? The answer: No.” Because, of course, Trump is such a lunatic that he might unleash nuclear weapons at any moment, for no particular reason.
The evidence is mounting that Iran is not only violating the spirit of the no-nukes deal, but that it is also violating its letter. The prologue to the deal explicitly states: “Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.” This reaffirmation has no sunset provision: it is supposed to be forever.
Yet German officials have concluded that Iran has not given up on its goal to produce nuclear weapons that can be mounted on rockets.

“Since the United States declared war on our country, we will have every right to make countermeasures, including the right to shoot down United States strategic bombers even when they are not inside the airspace border of our country,” Ri said.
