The Federal government is a hot mess.
After what they've done to the banks, the auto industry and healthcare, they cannot do the one most important thing they were meant to do.
The Sinaloa Cartel is thought to have seized control of Ciudad Juarez by US intelligence, and is being used as the main artery to traffic drugs into the United States through the city of El Paso. With that comes kidnappings, murders, crime, ect.
Federal agents even refer to the cities as the "ground zero" of the ridiculously titled war on drugs.
Any peep from the Obama administration? Any pullout from the Middle East and "redeployment" to that area of the border?
Instead, Obama is focusing on dismantling America's nuclear standing. A treaty with Russia to disarm in Prague? REALLY?!?
A 30% reduction in our nuclear arsenal and a reduction in submarines and strategic bombers coupled with the defense budget cuts Obama has already made is insanity! Do we really expect that Russia will live up to their word to disarm as well just because they say they will?
Even worse is the idea that we take the nuclear option off the table for countries that promise not to develop nukes. Sure. Does he really think that any such country wouldn't just attempt to gain nuclear capability under the radar? And what of terrorist sponsoring states? I suppose they can pack as many nail bomb vests as they wish, safe in the knowledge that we will never get to the point of exhaustion with their bullshit and just hit the button, solving the problem once and for all.
And Obama expects that Republicans will just get in line behind this?
He's probably not far off the mark. Considering the utter spinelessness in the GOP, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.
Speaking of surprise, is anyone surprised that Netanyahu cancelled his trip to the Washington nuclear arms conference? I wouldn't attend such a farce either, were I he. Considering the treatment of Israel by the Obama administration, why come to a table and be listen to my state, the ONLY stable one in the Middle East, be berated for my nuclear weapons program while the Hitler of Iran is given a pass?
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin is calling Obama out on his idiocy. (I know, not a difficult thing.) She has astutely pointed out that no previous president has ever considered such an foolish move.
Obama childishly responded that he would not respond to Palin, saying,
