Obama Vows to Disarm America

Obama's goal? 'Jeopardize U.S. battlefield superiority'
Critics blast Dem for assurance he'll cut nation's defense dollars


An organization dedicated to the mission of protecting and defending individual freedoms and rights under the U.S. Constitution is criticizing presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama for promising to cut, and possibly gut, U.S. military defense spending.

The Center for Individual Freedom, a non-partisan, non-profit, has posted one version of a YouTube video of Obama "inexplicably" pledging" to "unilaterally jeopardize American military superiority."

"When you find yourself in a hole, just keep digging," the organization said in its accompanying commentary. "That appears to be the logic of Sen. Barack Obama, who already finds himself in the proverbial hole on defense and national security issues. At this pace, he'll reach China by November."

The organization said the Obama video, which originally was posted online by BarackObamadotcom in late 2007 but has been reproduced in other versions too, he tells an audience at a group called Caucus4Priorities he would cut "tens of billions of dollars" in spending.

This would come at a time "when our armed forces are already stretched and in need of new weapon technologies and armor," said CFIF.

The original 2007 video is here: Barack Obama promised a leftist group that he would disarm the United States.

He also guarantees he will "cut investments in unproven missile defense systems," and he "will not weaponize space," and that "unnecessary" spending will be eliminated.

"Most alarmingly, however, Sen. Obama literally promises to 'slow development of future combat systems,'" CFIF said.

"Think about the frightening implications of this pledge for a moment.
"Future combat systems are the cornerstone of American military modernization and superiority. As America fights the war on terror and deters potential military aggression by rogue nations cross the world, advanced combat systems provide us with better equipment, unmatched situational awareness and communication systems that result in American battlefield domination. Other ascendant nations such as China and Russia seek to match our prowess, but we continue to outpace them," CFIF said.

It cited new satellite technology that "allows us to pinpoint and eliminate the enemy, unmanned drones that promise amazing advances in battlefield safety and effectiveness, bunker-buster weapons that penetrate deep into the caves in which remote terrorists hide and communications systems that allow lightning-quick troop deployment and rescue missions."

"They ultimately protect the lives and health of our troops, just as they protect us," CFIF said. "Despite this, Sen. Obama bizarrely pledges to jeopardize our battlefield superiority."

The group cited the nation's stealth aircraft, which penetrated Saddam Hussein's air defenses, precision-guided weaponry that has reduced harm to non-combatants and the Strategic Defense Initiative, "which forced Mikhail Gorbachev's negotiating hand and helped end the Cold War."

Obama uses the speech to emphasize that he is "the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning."

He says:

Thanks so much for the Caucus4Priorities, for the great work you've been doing. As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus4Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.

First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.

Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.

I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.

I will not weaponize space.

I will slow our development of future combat systems.

And I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.

Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.

"In what realm does Sen. Obama’s ideology dwell, that he would expect his promises to somehow endear him to American swing voters?" CFIF asked. "What makes Sen. Obama's statement most perplexing is the fact that he already faces an uphill battle to convince American voters that he won't be the second coming of Jimmy Carter in undermining our military forces."

Wild Thing's comment.........

I have posted this video before, but I did not have the added article and it is important too. It even had the video with it so this really is the original video of when he spoke.

How can anyone be this stupid, he has no idea how important our military is, how important it is to have the best in technology and anything we would need to defend our country and aid our troops.

....Thank you Mark for the link to this update and article.

He's got such grandiose plans, doesn't he? Didn't Jimmy Cahtah try this crap too and it backfired?
I guess Obamanation doesn't want allies in the middle east and wants the conflicts to continue.
He has no idea what he is getting into and he's going into it with blinders on. He sees the world through rose colored glasses. He's still a boy, not yet ready for prime time player.

Both Russia and China are building their defensive and offensive capabilities and this clown wants to slow development of future combat systems.

Lynn, yes it sure is a lot of changes, so many maybe that will help that because of that none of them will happen.

"not yet ready for prime time player"...LOL yes that's for sure.

BobF, thanks, your right. Doing it like Obama wants to a person would be going to a gun fight and then handing over their gun to the enemy. sheesh

Obama, the United States worst nightmare, Nobody on the left has any idea or they do and they know full well the horror this man can reap. Why, because they hate this country as much as Obama does.

The American who doesn't think his vote counts and doesn't show up to cast it. They must believe they can make a difference and this too must change otherwise we lose our country.
