“Our tanker aircraft are on average 47 years old and our strategic bombers 34 years old, and besides, their numbers are totally insufficient for America’s global missions. For example, our air force shrank from 82 fighter squadrons at the end of the Cold War to 39 today and our Navy is in worse shape.”
Back in 1967, the United States had an arsenal of more than 31,000 strategic nuclear warheads.Since 1967, the size of the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has been reduced by about 95 percent. The START Treaty that Barack Obama signed back in 2010 limits both the United States and Russia to a maximum of 1,550 deployed strategic nuclear warheads.Unfortunately, that was not nearly enough of a reduction for Obama. In June 2013, he announced to the world that he has decided that the United States can reduce the number of our deployed nuclear warheads by another one-third…
After a comprehensive review, I’ve determined that we can ensure the security of America and our allies, and maintain a strong and credible strategic deterrent, while reducing our deployed strategic nuclear weapons by up to one-third.

It is not the lands for us.” In the clip – believed to be the first footage of a Briton fighting for the militants in Iraq rather than Syria – he urges others to give up their weekly Nandos take up arms and join the growing ranks of foreign fighters.
Parvez’s close friend, fellow Briton Mohammad Nasser, died fighting with IS jihadists – but despite this the young Londoner has vowed to continue fighting. It is estimated that more than 500 to 600 Muslims from the UK have travelled to the Middle East to fight for IS, which has slaughtered thousands of people in its bloody war to carve out an Islamic Caliphate. The clip comes amid growing calls for British extremists who go abroad to fight to be stripped of their citizenship and banned from returning home.
