You’re surrounded by armed and murderous villains; ugly, scar-faced brutes from the wrong side of the tracks; blackguards with garlicky breath and moldy bits of falafel wedged like bookmarks in their dirty moustachios. They’ve kept their distance thus far because you’re carrying bigger and better weapons. Do you
A. Stay alert and be ready to defend yourself at all times?
B. Drop your guns, raise your hands, and march briskly forward into the unknown, confident that good intentions will always fare better than superior firepower …
If you’re Barack Obama, the answer is always “B” because he’s somehow convinced himself that the wild-eyed hordes just outside the perimeter wire have ample reason to hate your well-fed guts — you’ve never treated them fairly. But Barack-O’s marching you out there with him. And if he’s wrong — which he is — there aren’t any do-overs after you’ve been hacked to pieces:
President Obama has decided to seek deeper cuts in deployed strategic nuclear weapons to as few as 1,000 warheads, sharply below the target of 1,550 warheads required under a 2010 U.S.-Russia arms treaty, U.S. officials said Monday.
The lower warhead levels also would be contrary to recent congressional testimony from a strategic forces commander who said further cuts would weaken the ability to deter nuclear states like Russia and China.
A U.S. strategic nuclear force posture of 1,000 strategic warheads has not been seen since the early 1950s.
Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton, a former State Department arms control undersecretary, said he is very worried that deeper cuts will harm U.S. security.
“Levels under the New START agreement are already too low,” Bolton told the Free Beacon. “Going below that reflects blind ideology, not strategic analysis of U.S. defense needs. This is what a second Obama term will bring.”
President Obama was overheard during a meeting with then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev telling the Russian leader that he would have “more flexibility” in strategic talks with Russia after his presumed reelection. The comment was widely viewed as the president offering additional concessions to Moscow beyond many already made as part of the administration’s conciliatory “reset” policy toward Russia.
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney said the administration is seeking to unilaterally disarm U.S. nuclear forces, something that is “the most dangerous thing I have ever seen an American President attempt to do.”

There is, of course, another possibility, a raison d’être besides breathtaking naivete; a reason that satisfactorily explains the otherwise inexplicable and historically irresponsible actions of Barack Obama.
He belongs to the other side.
