Barack Hussein Obama says he will not use nukes to defend Israel, or under any circumstance. I guess that makes him the modern day Jimmy “Held Hostage” Carter.
Presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Thursday he would not use nuclear weapons “in any circumstance” to fight terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan, drawing criticism from Hillary Rodham Clinton and other Democratic rivals.
“I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance,” Obama said, with a pause, “involving civilians.” Then he quickly added, “Let me scratch that. There’s been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That’s not on the table.”
Obama was responding to a question by the Associated Press about whether there was any circumstance where he would be prepared or willing to use nuclear weapons in Afghanistan and Pakistan to defeat terrorism and al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
“There’s been no discussion of using nuclear weapons and that’s not a hypothetical that I’m going to discuss,” Obama said after a Capitol Hill breakfast with constituents.
When asked whether his answer also applied to the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons, he said it did.

And here is what Hillary had to say about the potential use of nukes:
ABC’s Chris Cuomo asked Clinton what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons, according to the network.
“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president we will attack Iran,” Clinton said. “In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”
I had said earlier that I was going to hang the moniker of ‘MacDaddy’ on Obama…I’m thinking ‘Carter’ might be be a better appellation for the naive little…
No wonder terror groups like Hamas and FARC are rooting for Obama to become President. You know, I was extremely pissed at the Democrats (Daily Kos) and Independents for interfering with the GOP Primaries earlier this year and gave John McCain the extra little push that made him the nominee for the party.
Perhaps Senator John McCain is exactly what this nation needs in these perilous times. He has seen the face of the enemy, suffered under the loving embrace by Socialist Vietnamese torturers while Democrats fought to help their fellow travelers win the war against America.
