American Elephants


The Estimable Mark Steyn by The Elephant's Child

Mark Steyn points out today that Obama held “the biggest meeting of world leaders on American soil since the founding of the U.N. 65 years ago” on nuclear nonproliferation — and Iran wasn’t on the agenda.

Iran has already offered to share its nuclear technology with Sudan.

The mound of corpses being piled up around the world today is not from high-tech nuclear states but from low-tech psycho states.  It’s not that Britain has nukes and poor old Sudan has to make do with machetes.  It’s that the machete crowd is willing to kill on an industrial scale and the high-tech guys can’t figure out a way to stop them.  Perhaps for his next pointless yakfest the president might consider a machete nonproliferation initiative.

“So the principle underpinning Obama’s Seventies-retro nuke summit — that the size of a civilized state’s stockpile adds to the global threat — is not just false but dangerously delusional.”
