Obama Legacy Could Very Well Be FUTURE NUCLEAR WAR! Talking Out Of Both Sides Of His Mouth, President Obama Advocates For A ‘Nuclear Free World’ One Day, Then Concurrently & Surreptitiously Develops Smaller, More Precise Nuclear Bombs Thereby Increasing The Likelihood A Future U.S. President Would Deploy B61-12 Nuclear Warheads (With “Dial-A-Yield” Technology) Against Non-Nuclear ‘Sitting Ducks’ Just As We Did In 1945 Against Japan. The Marquis Of Queensbury May Not Enter 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue! The New Fleet Of Nukes Will Cost $1-Trillion Over 3-Decades. Perhaps That’s How Obama’s T.A.R.P. ‘SLUSH FUND’ Will Be Used. Russia Calls This Obamanation “Irresponsible And Openly Provocative”. (Reminder: The United States Of America Is Only Nation On Earth To Deploy Nuclear Bombs In War.) 2 Pieces Of Good News: 1- Nuclear Countries Need Not Fear US Because America Only Nukes Countries That Are Themselves Nukeless, Not Our Nuclear Equals! 2- President Obama Only Lies About Really Important Stuff! Now Please Look Up The Definitions Of ‘Bravery’ & ‘Cowardice’, Then Apply To USA War Foreign Policy! Did I Mention ‘Lately’ ‘DEPLETED URANIUM WEAPONS’ Already In Use By US Military & The B83?




     A Future President?




A new report reveals how the Obama administration has upgraded the U.S. nuclear arsenal to create smaller, more precise nuclear bombs. The New York Times reports that despite his advocacy for a “nuclear-free world”, President Obama’s administration has potentially increased the likelihood of a future president deploying a nuclear weapon by creating more precise warheads whose explosive force can be dialed up or down. A former top nuclear strategist for Obama, General James Cartwright, acknowledged “what going smaller does is to make the weapon more thinkable.” The B61 bomb is part of a fleet of new warhead types planned under an effort that will cost up to $1 trillion over three decades. Russia has called U.S. tests of the missile “irresponsible” and “openly provocative.” The U.S. is the only country ever to use a nuclear weapon in war.



Engineers at the United States’ nuclear weapons lab in Albuquerque, New Mexico, have spent the past few years designing and testing the B61-12, a high-tech addition to our nation’s atomic arsenal. Unlike the free-fall gravity bombs it will replace, the B61-12 is a guided nuclear bomb. A new tail kit assembly, made by Boeing, enables the bomb to hit targets far more precisely than its predecessors.

Using “Dial-a-yield” technology, the bomb’s explosive force can be adjusted before launch from a high of 50,000 tons of TNT equivalent to a low of 300 tons—that’s 98 percent smaller than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima 70 years ago.


Tabacco: It would appear that “Dialing Down” too often would be extremely wasteful, speaking both Nuclear Material-wise and Price Tag-wise! But who knows what a President Trump would do!


Despite these innovations, the government doesn’t consider the B61-12 to be a new weapon but simply an ?upgrade?. In the past, Congress has rejected funding for similar weapons, reasoning that more accurate, less powerful bombs were more likely to be used. In 2010, the Obama administration announced that it would not make any nuclear weapons with new capabilities. The White House and Pentagon insist that the B61-12 won’t violate that pledge.




The B61-12 could be deployed by the new generation of F-35 fighter jets, a prospect that worries Hans Kristensen, a nuclear weapons expert at the Federation of American Scientists. “If the Russians put out a guided nuclear bomb on a stealthy fighter that could sneak through air defenses, would that add to the perception here that they were lowering the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons?” he asks. “Absolutely!”


So far, most of the criticism of B61-12 has focused on its price tag. Once full production commences in 2020, the program will cost more than $11 billion for about 400 to 480 bombs—more than double the original estimate, making it the most expensive nuclear bomb ever built.
