"For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons, or launched a crippling cyber attack."

"substantially narrow the conditions under which the United States would use nuclear weapons, even in self defense."

Obama Limits When U.S. Would Use Nuclear Arms - NYTimes.com


From "45 Communist Goals":
Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35
January 10, 1963:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.


'Goals' 4-45 can be found here:

As you can read, some people are disappointed in this news, as well as anxious and impatient to use nuclear weapons.

No doubt Jesus would agree with Obama's stance, and in the end that's all that really matters to us Christians.

We didn't use a nuke in WWII. Those were atom bombs. One can destroy a country the other can destroy world.

An atomic bomb is a nuclear device, there is no nuclear device which would "destroy the world" only the exchange of hundreds
