Obama Rama

Apparently presidential hopeful, at least in his own eyes, Barak Obama the junior U.S. Senator from Illinois's romance with the neighbor's canine is not finished just yet.

Hot on the heels of calling for invading Pakistan, a nation with its own nuclear arsenal, Obama has now stated flatly that he would under no circumstances use nuclear weapons.

In comments over the use of nuclear weapons, Mr Obama ruled out the use of such weapons to go after al-Qaeda or Taliban targets in Afghanistan or Pakistan, prompting Ms Clinton to say presidents never take the nuclear option off the table.

Presidents since the Cold War have used nuclear deterrence to keep the peace. And I don't believe that any president should make any blanket statements with respect to the use or non-use of nuclear weapons
New York Senator Hilary Clinton

Mr Obama's nuclear position came a day after he vowed he would be willing to strike al-Qaeda targets inside Pakistan with or without the approval of the government of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.

That's right ladies and gentlemen, after calling for invading a country with nuclear weapons he states he will never use them irregardless of the provocation.

Nice to know which presidential candidate would allow authoritarian states like China, Russia and every third world dictator who can buy a nuclear weapon be able to kill millions of U.S. citizens without the fear of retaliation.
