Global Power: Moscow launches four ICBMs in a large-scale nuclear drill as Chinese state media, brandishing detailed maps, show how Beijing's nuclear submarines can attack U.S. cities. We press "reset," they press "launch."

In March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a red "reset button" to symbolize improved ties. The era of confrontation when American presidents demanded the tearing down of walls was over. From now on, we would make nice.

Fast-forward to 2012, when President Obama met with Dmitry Medvedev, Russia's then-president and now prime minister, at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea.

That was when Obama assured Medvedev he'd have more leeway after his re-election to weaken missile defense. This would help him achieve his dream of U.S. disarmament and bring about, as he expressed in Prague in 2009, "a world without nuclear weapons."

Apparently the Russians and the Chinese do not share that dream. On Wednesday, Russian strategic forces carried out a large-scale surprise military drill that included the test launch of two land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles and two submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

So while Russia expands and tests its offensive and defensive missile capabilities, President Obama lets our missile capabilities wither and caves to Russian demands to halt previously planned expansion.

To placate Moscow, Obama has already betrayed our allies in Poland and the Czech Republic by abandoning plans to deploy ground-based interceptors and missile defense in those countries.

  • We should be building up our military and nuclear capabilities to the point where NO country would even entertain such an idea as bombing the USA. 

  • Good point Gunner!

  • I'm sure they have the coordinates but why would they bomb their collaborators?  I doubt they would be willing to do the American people such a favor.

  • Do you think the Russians and the Chinese have the coordinates of the White House and the Halls of congress?  Perhaps starting over isn't always such a bad idea.  So sue me, I'm just thinking out loud.

  • I wonder if Obama will issue another executive order that all schools must hold 'duck under your little desk and hold in place until the plutonium fries your little body'?

  • I wonder if the Ruskies are targeting the same cities as Ovomit?

  • I have been following this. I swear I can not think of a more dangerous time for nuclear threat from abroad and that includes living in the 50's. Kennedy handled the Cuban missile crises aptly. He did so by letting the Russians know we would not retreat.

    Obama, Hillary and now Kerry are retreater's.
