In Response to Re: Obama NO nukes when defending America!!! : And if that was what I was talking about you'd have an EXCELLENT point. However, it wasn't what I was talking about so you don't have much of a point at all. The option of holding our card close to the vest is certainly off the table. But it's been repeated to you and you still don't seem to grasp it. I'm done. Giving me a frickin headache

ROFL. The option of holding our card close to the vest is off the table? What kind of idiot are you?
The announcement was non-committal. He explicitly stated that we'd reconsider if we wanted to.
And as I've patiently tried to explain to this retard*d dining room table, the way the promise is crafted shows it doesn't actually apply to any real country.
1. A country without nuclear weapons
2. That is in compliance with the non-proliferation treaty.
3. That is not North Korea, Iran, or any other country "like" them.
4. That for some unknown reason attacks us.
If such a country exists, then yes, we have shown them our cards by telling them we won't nuke them. Oh wait, but we will if we decide they are "like" Iran or North Korea. And we will nuke them if we decide to "reconsider" the promise.
Damn we're so locked down! We showed them the whole game plan! ROFLMAO.
But you just can't engage in that thought process. All you can say is that I am stupid because your repeated assertion that "you never show your cards" - completely divorced from the actual facts - proves that Obama showed his cards and is thus bad.
Again, can you even begin to describe what cards we've shown? No. Because we haven't shown any. You can't point to a country that anyone has any reason to believe meets #1-4
I mean do you honestly think that if it were absolutely necessary to use a nuke despite the promise, that Obama wouldn't do it because he'd remember the promis? Really?
Well if against all probability you believe that he would consider himself "bound" by the promise no matter what, you would also have to remember that he left himself two outs anyway:
1. Calling a country "like" Iran or North Korea exempts the country from the promise.
2. "Reconsidering" the promise allows him to withdraw it.
Obama gave up the "option" of keeping our cards close to our vest? Swing and miss. I can't believe you're actually disputing THAT point.
