    And give it to whom?

    REDUCING ‘REAL RISKS’:

    https://www.politico.com/newsletters...8?cid=su_tw_md

    Nearly three dozen House Democrats on Monday called on Biden to relinquish his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, in the latest appeal to reform the command-and-control structure so that no single person can initiate a nuclear war.

    “...Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” states the letter spearheaded by Rep. Jimmy Panetta of California. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.“

    “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter adds. “The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”

    They offer a number of alternatives, including requiring other officials in the line of succession, such as the vice president and the speaker of the House — “neither of whom can be removed by the president if they disagree — to concur with a launch order.”

    all it would take would be an emp attack to knock out communication and then our enemy gets a free nuke attack on us before we can respond.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    They're asking to let military heads be in charge of the button. How does that makes it better? Until they decommission nukes, everything else is the same.

    Give it Kamala of course. We are going into Women's Month soon. That would be a perfect time for her to take the reins.

    If the Demoncrats get their hands on the nukes, they will most definitely find an excuse to launch them. Thats what worries the $#@! out of me. Literally. I just checked my butt and theres no $#@! in there! Even my $#@! is scared!

    Seriously they are looking for ANY measure to trigger MASS DEATH.

    That this is not screaming red DANGER in headlines across every media organ only goes to show how far gone we are.

    This is insanity.

    I think could very well be what they actually are worried about.

    Maybe Biden will accidentally launch a nuke at DC. Don't think anybody will complain about that.

    This is more than the reality that Biden has dementia.

    No one person can just launch nukes and there is no big red button. The system was setup decades ago to require multiple people taking multiple actions.

    I think this really highlights how liberals are geared toward decisions by committees. They generally aren't strong decision makers and are distrustful of those that are. Liberals are all about the group think. They are unsure of themselves in many ways and they are threatened by confident individuals.

    Meanwhile Biden really doesn't have any business carrying the nuclear football.

    I am a libertarian. I am advocating everyone enjoy maximum freedom on both personal and economic issues as long as they do not bring violence unto others.

    I swear the ONLY possible outcome of ANY agenda the people in power are proposing is MASS DEATH. I mean like on the scale of BILLIONS of people. Starvation. Nuclear War. Civil War. Invasion. Alien Invasion. What ever it takes, I swear these people WANT DEATH come hell or high water, and at this point I would not be too terribly surprised if we got both HELL and HIGH WATER.
