Some people thought Elizabeth Warren was more rationale? She nuked that myth.
“Warren, Bullock spar over ‘no first use’ nuclear policy”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) sparred Tuesday night over her proposed “no first use” policy on nuclear weapons during the Democratic debate.
In defending the proposed policy, Warren argued for diplomatic and economic solutions to conflict, saying “we should not be asking our military to take on jobs that do not have a military solution.”
But Bullock opposed that proposal, saying, “I don’t want to turn around and say, ‘Well, Detroit has to be gone before we would ever use that.’”
Warren is the lead sponsor of the Senate version of a bill that would make it U.S. policy not to use nuclear weapons first.
It has long been the policy of the United States that the country reserves the right to launch a preemptive nuclear strike.
Former President Obama reportedly weighed changing the policy before leaving office, but ultimately did not after advisers argued doing so could embolden adversaries.
What morons. Naturally Obama thought about it — read: really wanted to but was stopped by advisors. So no speed bumps for Elizabeth Warren though. She wants to grant a ‘privilege of first strike‘ to our enemies and enshrine it into national policy.
Gee, I wonder what we get in return? Dare I ask.
