New York Times Calls for Trump’s Nuclear Codes to be Taken Away

The mainstream media has long used their disdain for Trump as a reason to suggest that he is unfit to serve.

An Op-Ed entitled “Time to Restrict the President’s Power to Wage Nuclear War”, published in the NY Times on Tuesday, called for an unprecedented policy change which would restrict the President’s power to use nuclear weapons to defend the country.

The President’s ability to call for the launch of nuclear weapons are a  moment’s notice is part of what has prevented nuclear war for more than 60 years. Restricting the US President’s ability to launch nuclear weapons would put the US in a distinct disadvantage against other countries which have leaders who can call for the launch of weapons.

In the world that the New York Times is calling for, North Korea could launch a nuke at a US city, and the America would need to pass resolutions through committees in order to retaliate. This would create a significant force asymmetry. The ability to use nuclear weapons is what gives them their deterrent effect.

Removing the President’s ability to launch nuclear weapons all together would ensure that the United States would no longer be the world’s foremost super-power.  The New York Times said “the president has had essentially unchecked power to wage war, including launching a nuclear strike.” This is true.

Unchecked power by the President to wage nuclear war is what makes nuclear weapons worth building and maintaining.

No, political contempt for the President is not a reason to change a policy that’s prevented Nuclear war for the last  60+ years.
