Under the approval of President Barack Obama, the U.S. Department of Energy is developing an updated nuclear weapon system, reported AllGov.com. It’s complete hypocrisy. President Obama is a Nobel Peace Prize recipient and he just struck a deal with Iran preventing that country from creating nuclear weapons.
The B61-12 will explode with the force of 50,000 tons of TNT, triple the power of “Little Boy,” the atomic bomb that devastated Hiroshima in 1945. The key feature of this new weapon is that it’s laser-guided. The Department of Energy plans on spending $11 billion to construct 400 bombs.
Developed by Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory, the crew can also adjust the bomb’s explosive yield. This thing is sinister. “We do not have a nuclear guided bomb in our arsenal today,” said Hans Kristensen, a nuclear weapons expert with the Federation of American Scientists. “It is a new weapon.”
In 2010, President Obama pledged not only to refrain from constructing more nuclear weapons, but also reduce the number in America’s stockpile. Like many things Obama has said, that turned out to be a complete lie.
