Are Nukes Needed to Deter Cyber Attacks? Bachmann Says 'Yes'

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., raised eyebrows among liberal foreign policy observers by suggesting during a Wednesday rally with Sarah Palin that the American nuclear arsenal is needed even to deter cyber attacks.

"If in fact there is a nation who is compliant with all of the rules ahead of time and they've complied with the United Nations on nuclear proliferation, if they fire against the United States a biological weapon, a chemical weapon or maybe a cyber attack, well then we aren't going to be firing back with nuclear weapons," Bachmann said. "Doesn't that make us all feel safe?"

“No!” shouted the crowd of thousands in Minneapolis.

The new policy announced by President Obama places limits on the circumstances when the United States will use nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Posture Review says that the U.S. will not use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Regimes like Iran and North Korea are not protected by the new policy because the U.S. says they have violated nonproliferation agreements.

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.
