Obama to hold nuclear weapons summit

Obama says he'll convene a global summit by year's end to discuss the protection, reduction & eventual elimination of nuclear weapons. Uh... HELLO!! Is he completely DAFT? Or is he just mentally incompetent? What an idiot thing to contemplate doing... Think: Iran, Syria, North Korea, Russia, China, etc, etc? To answer that query: He is completely off his egomaniac rocker! ~ 4Christ (with a little editing by yours truly.)
I can completely understand what my friend 4Christ was saying in her digg description. Just read the following excerpts from the column, and I can say most of us with at least a brain cell or two can see just how daft O-bomb-uh can sound at times:
PRAGUE – President Barack Obama on Sunday launched an effort to rid the world of nuclear weapons, calling them "the most dangerous legacy of the Cold War" and saying the U.S. has a moral responsibility to lead as the only nation to ever use one. In a speech driven with fresh urgency by North Korea's rocket launch just hours early, Obama said the U.S. would "immediately and aggressively" seek ratification of a comprehensive ban on testing nuclear weapons. He said the U.S. would host a summit within the next year on reducing and eventually eliminating nuclear weapons, and he called for a global effort to secure nuclear material. "Some argue that the spread of these weapons cannot be checked — that we are destined to live in a world where more nations and more people possess the ultimate tools of destruction," Obama said to a bustling crowd in an old square outside the Prague Castle gates. "This fatalism is a deadly adversary," he said. "For if we believe that the spread of nuclear weapons is inevitable, then we are admitting to ourselves that the use of nuclear weapons is inevitable."
