"I read Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Jan. 3 opinion piece, 'Let's Commit to a Nuclear-Free World' in horrified fascination. Please tell me she doesn't think that a 'nuclear-free' U.S. would inspire North Korea's dictator and Iran's mullah's to give up their pursuit of nuclear weapons. I'm certain Vladimir Putin would also welcome such a situation", Bill Brockman letter to the WSJ, 7 January 2009.
"Sen Feinstein makes an unsubstantiated claim that nuclear weapons are 'not a deterrent'. I respectfully, but strongly, disagree with her", Steven Stevens letter to the WSJ, 7 January 2009.
JRN is spot on. I read the Dianne Feinstein (DF) piece JRN refers to which appeared in the WSJ. I had difficulty believing a US Senator, a Stanford graduate, could be so ignorant of America's strategic arsenal's capabilities. DF is a dangerous ignoramus.
I agree with Brockman.
Unlike Stevens, I disrespectfully disagree with DF.
