New Clear Pose 2010

As best understood - way back in the last millennium's Cold War - Great Satan mastered a diplopolititary feat l' hyper puissant.
Calculated ambiguity.

Weaponized new clear weaponry with multiple, reliable delivery systems provide
"credible military options to deter a wide range of threats, including WMD and large scale conventional military force.”

That's sooooo 2009, 44's New Clear Pose 2010 strips off the thin sexyful veil of ambiguity:
"...explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons or launched a crippling cyber attack."

Whisko Tangy Foxwhat?

"Months of study led by the Defense Department will declare that “the fundamental role” of nuclear weapons is to deter nuclear attacks on the United States, allies or partners, a narrower presumption than the past."


Better than defining Great Satan's New Clear Pose as the sole role of deterring enemy nukes - the "...most serious security challenge..."

Yet still.

One of the charming things about Great Satan is she's crazy and unpredictable.

Ditching calculated ambiguity seems "Unserious"in the conventional world, needless in theory and dangerously provocative

In effect he is surrendering!

It's worse that a surrender, it's an invitation. Gas is cheap and easy, germs are only a tad more difficult. Any country more efficient than Somalia can build a bug laboratory and come up with enough microscopic bugz to kill a bazillion people. They don't even have to come up with the fancy spray cans like in that Tom Clancy book, all they have to do is find enough Jihadi types to quietly inject and put 'em on airplanes before the symptoms show. Then, once here, all they have to do is ride the subways and the bus during rush hour, etc.
