Some sensible advice on nuclear disarmament

Jamie Fly and John Noonan have some sensible advice on nuclear disarmament. Too bad the Obumbler won't take it.
A nuclear free world isn’t an ignoble goal, but it needs to be approached realistically. Focusing on the stockpiles of the United States and Russia and limiting U.S. options for use of nuclear weapons does nothing to change the calculus of Tehran and Pyongyang.

Henry Kissinger, who is now among the chief proponents of nuclear disarmament, wrote in 1957 in his landmark study Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy that “A renunciation of force, by eliminating the penalty for intransigence, will therefore place the international order at the mercy of its most ruthless or irresponsible members.”

Our unwillingness to penalize countries such as Iran, North Korea, and Syria for their illicit activities only empowers them. It sends the message to other states potentially seeking nuclear weapons that the path to a weapon can be pursued with few repercussions. If President Obama were truly concerned about the future of the international nonproliferation regime, he would follow his recent disarmament “accomplishments” with some serious action to ensure that rogue regimes realize that there is a price to be paid by those who choose to pursue nuclear weapons.

Husain Barak will do exactly what the Saudis tell him, and unless they are scared stiff from Iran, not much will happen.

BUT, King Fahd is the only person in the world capable to convince Obama to finally attack Iran

He should but no one takes him seriously. The world is not going to be disarmed in our lifetime and indulging in the idea of world peace through mutual disarmament is pure rubbish. Just don't tell the Left they've got it all wrong - they will never take sensible advice of any kind on the subject.
