Well that makes a little more sense. But of course, that's not true either, if they beat their child to death they will have to face point #5 anyway, which of course is the government. :)

I assume you're right though.

"Stop arguing with everyone here and go to Move-on.org for some like-minded conversation."

Yeah, I have realized that many people here don't want to have their opinions questioned. Fortunately, I don't really care. :)

As for the rest, I think it just comes down to difference in world view. Reagan had a world view that was essentially very positive. I liked his stance on nuclear proliferation. It WAS "peace through superior fire power" - Reagan understood, as he mentions in the speech I quoted above, that MAD was NOT superior firepower. It was merely equal firepower, that upon provocation would only lead to both super powers' destruction. It was not sustainable.

The only way to decrease the risk of nuclear attack/war is to reduce the proliferation of nuclear weapons. I am frankly a bit surprised that this is apparently a "hot topic" - I honestly thought that this was settled back in Reagan's day as a laudable goal.

I don't think me arguing it any more than I have will change anyone's mind though. :)

The one where nobody was home. ;)

I specifically stated that the situation in the world has changed since. The goal is still the same: a world free from nuclear weapons. It has to be the goal, IMO, even though it's not any more or less realistic now than it was at the height of the Cold War when Reagan stated it.

Obviously, the efforts by pretty much all previous administrations have not worked as intended, at least not when it comes to North Korea. Something new is needed. It doesn't mean we can just arm us to the teeth and pretend that keeps us safe.

Way to take this off-topic.

Yay.

That's obviously your prerogative. I agree that we shouldn't just unilaterally dismantle our nuclear arsenal, I haven't seen anyone suggest we should.

It's pretty obvious that the reputation meter is mostly a measure of how much you can express your hatred for Obama. I don't worry too much about it. ;)

I guess you're just pissed off in general then, and have no input on the topic at hand. Gotcha.

You probably don't like it, but Glenn Greenwald is actually looking at that. See today's post for example: http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/04/06...

Obama is so far in many respects just continuing what Bush started. If he doesn't take action soon, I'd say it's getting to be time to charge Obama with war crimes, along with Bush, Cheney, Yoo and the others.

Might not be the answer you were looking for though. ;)
