Press Release: 20 Former United States National Security Leaders say: STOP UNILATERALLY DISARMING AMERICA'S NUKES, OBAMA!



Press Releases | | Nuclear Deterrence

For Immediate Release

22 February 2013
Hon. Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C.  20500

Dear Mr. President:

The latest North Korean underground nuclear test represents both a danger and an opportunity.  The danger is obvious:  One of the most unstable regimes on the planet is continuing to amass the skills and the capabilities to produce, weaponize and perhaps use the most dangerous weapons known to man.  The fact that Pyongyang is doing so together with other nations hostile to us and our allies – notably, Iran – raises the possibility that the threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear weapons technologies will soon metastasize around the globe.

The opportunity this ominous turn of events offers is the chance to reconsider your pursuit of the goal of “ridding the world of nuclear weapons.”  It is now clear that, as a practical matter under present and foreseeable circumstances, this agenda will only result in the unilateral disarmament of the U.S. nuclear deterrent.  That will make the world more dangerous, not less.

In our professional judgment, born of decades of experience with national security policy and practice, America’s “Triad” of nuclear-armed land-based and submarine-launched missiles and bomber-delivered nuclear weapons has promoted strategic stability and discouraged proliferation.  Steps that raise uncertainty about the viability, reliability and effectiveness of our deterrent will have the opposite effect.

According to published reports, you are considering further, draconian and perhaps unilateral cuts in the numbers of nuclear weapons in our arsenal.  We respectfully recommend that this plan be abandoned in favor of the fulfillment of commitments you made at the time of the New START Treaty to: modernize all three legs of the Triad; ensure the safety and deterrent effectiveness of the weapons with which they are equipped; and restore the critical industrial base that supports these forces.

Doing otherwise will put our country, its allies and our peoples at ever- greater risk in a world that is, far from nuclear-free, awash with such weapons – with increasing numbers of them in the hands of freedom’s enemies.  It is unimaginable that that is your intention.  It must not be the unintended result of your actions, either.
