Obama Pledges to Lead World Into Nuclear-Free Future


www.foxnews.com

PRAGUE -- Declaring the future of mankind at stake, President Obama on Sunday said all nations must strive to rid the world of nuclear arms and that the U.S. had a "moral responsibility" to lead because no other country has used one.

A North Korean rocket launch upstaged Obama's idealistic call to action, delivered in the capital of the Czech Republic, a former satellite of the Soviet Union. But Obama dismissed those who say the spread of nuclear weapons, "the most dangerous legacy of the Cold War," cannot be checked.

"This goal will not be reached quickly -- perhaps not in my lifetime," he told a cheering crowd of more than 20,000 in the historic square outside the Prague Castle gates. We "must ignore the voices who tell us that the world cannot change. We have to insist, 'Yes, we can.'"

Few experts think it's possible to completely eradicate nuclear weapons, and many say it wouldn't be a good idea even if it could be done. Even backward nations such as North Korea have shown they can develop bombs, given enough time.

As good of this sounds I highly doubt this could ever happen. The way I perceive the future moderately funded terror organizations will easily have the capabilities & resources to make sufficient nuclear weapons but perhaps not ones with advanced missile technology.

Sounds to me like this is going to be something that is pushed thru United Nations sanctions and members of the United Nations will gradually get smaller and smaller. Finding reasons to remove certain nuclear nations just to gain more power in the world. But what about Russia, does Obama really think that there will ever come a time in which we the United States are the last remaining country on the planet with Nukes. That would never happen cause and we would never give them up before all before us either.
