Nuclear Abolition and Media Capitulation
By Phil Perkins
September 28, 2009
President Obama has shown his incredible naiveté or downright malevolent intentions toward his own country yet again, this time on the world stage as he presided over a U.N. "summit" calling for a world without nuclear weapons and a halt to "proliferation" of such weapons. This myopic pronouncement comes at the same time that there is increasing evidence of Iran's nuclear weapons development, not to mention the recent tests by the hostile North Korean regime. All the while, the drive-by media pass off this incredible, self-promoting presidential display without a whiff of challenge. The unrelenting media bias has gone way beyond the issue of fairness—it has become downright dangerous.
It's bad enough that Obama used the world's bully pulpit to once again drone on about the so-called "climate change" crisis and how imperative it was for us evil energy-gluttons in America to apologize to the world and accept draconian measures to compensate for our past sins. But when you juxtapose that ridiculousness against the very real threat faced by the free world due to the madmen running the dictatorships in Iran and North Korea, it makes the climate argument mighty small indeed. But you'd never know that the way the U.N. conference was reported.
A recent article stated that the U.S.-drafted resolution called for "further efforts in the sphere of nuclear disarmament" to achieve "a world without nuclear weapons" and urged all countries that have not signed the 1970 nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to do so. However, China among others stated it has no plans to scrap its nuclear arsenal. Nor does China intend to do anything, let alone its fair share, to address the so-called climate change crisis. Yet Obama's idealistic pronouncements are praised in the media, not only since the media agree with him, but also since the U.N., especially its more roguish members, affirmed him as they have no president since the organization was founded. When the deranged, megalomaniacal Khadafi gushes over Obama as akin to a son, that confirms what we know about the president's anti-American worldview.
So what do Obama and the media do for an encore? Of course, the predictable bob and weave which liberal politicians and their media friends have used for years. To placate those of us who felt that Obama was giving away the store at the U.N., the president is now talking tough to Iran after the Ahmadinejad regime disclosed that its nuclear enrichment facility will soon be operational. Sorry, but this is a classic case of closing the barn door after the horse is out. The president's words must surely ring hollow in Tehran, given his previous failure to lift a finger in support of anti-Ahmadinejad protestors after the regime's largely fraudulent election, and his starry-eyed speech at the corrupt U.N. about a world without nuclear weapons. The dinosaur media's predictable response—gosh, how will he be able to focus on healthcare now with this annoying international problem staring at him? Never mind that this annoying international problem is growing daily due to the improper actions and inactions of this president.
