I was reminded yesterday while out driving around and listening to NPR that Ronald Reagan had actually, to the annoyance of his rightwing base, fought for nuclear weapons DETERRENCE. Made me think about who is actually against nuclear weapons races now-it sure isn't George Bush, Junior. Holocasusts like nuclear bombs shouldn't be talked about lightly, but Clinton did last year, making her a hypocrite THIS year. I want every presidential candidate to come out clearly AGAINST nuclear weapons, period, not alluding to using them as if maybe it might be an option on the table in the future. The US, as we know, is the ONLY country that has ever attacked another with weapons of mass destruction. Not a game. And I'm against the Clinton posturing (as well as Obama's) that would not speak out AGAINST WMD in any sense at all.
Clinton, who has tried to cast her rival as too inexperienced for the job of commander in chief, said of Obama's stance on Pakistan: "I don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons."
