Let's just announce our defense secrets to the world so they will like usTopics: Political News and commentaries
I continue to wonder who's side is this clown we have in the WH on; after all, it certainly can't be ours. This is the only conclusion one can draw from Obama's latest move in what amounts to just one of many in his apparent overall plan to dismantle America (H/t - Gateway Pundit).
What began with his world-wide apology tour has now progressed to the Obama Administration will unilaterally announce US secret missile tests and satellite launches in the wish and hope that other regimes will love us, think we're wonderful, start singing Kumbaya and start giving away their own state secrets.
Does anyone other than the Obama administration really expect the likes of N. Korea, China, Iran, and Russia to do anything other than sit back, scratch their heads in utter amazement at the stupidity and naiveness our incompetent fool, and laugh their asses off?
From LA Times:
President Obama has decided to pre-announce to the world once-secret American ballistic missile tests and satellite launches.It's part of a "confidence boosting initiative? Whose confidence? Surely not ours, but perhaps that of our enemies and adversaries who see an America being consistently weakened - and governed by a far-left, liberal-progressive, touchy-feely, fool.
The Democratic administration's goal is to show a friendlier face to other countries and to coax Russia to do the same.
It's part of a confidence-boosting initiative launched, so to speak, last fall when Obama suddenly abandoned the U.S. missile-defense system in Eastern Europe that had exercised the Russians, though it was aimed at potential future missiles from Iran.
Obama hoped such a unilateral U.S. forfeiture would encourage Russia to put pressure on Iran to halt its nuclear weapons development. So far, no good on that.
Of course, the point of secret tests by any state in an insecure, suspicious world is to deny advance notice to potential enemies, making it more difficult if not impossible for them to gain intelligence by monitoring the tests themselves.According to George Jahn of the Associated Press, a confidential U.S. note sent to 128 other countries two weeks ago said:
The United States ... will provide pre-launch notification of commercial and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space launches as well as the majority of intercontinental ballistic and submarine-launched ballistic missile launches.
Security experts note that Obama left himself some wiggle room by using the phrase "majority of intercontinental and submarine-launched ballistic missile launches," many of which depart from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the California coast.
Washington's hope is that Russia will resume doing the same.
