OPINION, October 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- In 2007, Barack Obama appeared before the far-left pacifist group, Caucus for Priorities, and promised to disarm America.
His 132-word pledge can be seen on YouTube (link below). Among his promises: "I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems."
Today, Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.) indicated how Obama's plans to gut the military would be translated into budgetary allocations. Frank told the editorial board of The Standard-Times that the Democrats would slash military spending by 25%, forcing America to withdraw from Iraq sooner. Rep. Frank said, "We don't need all these fancy new weapons."
Rep. Frank also called for massive increases in federal spending for social programs and increased taxes.
As president, Obama would take office while two wars are raging, and as the first new commander-in-chief since the attacks of 9/11 brought down the World Trade Center and directly hit the Pentagon.
His own vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden warned that his election would spur a major international crisis of great danger. But Barney Frank assures voters that Obama remains serious about gutting the military and disarming America.
