Default New START: From Russia with Glee

New START: From Russia with Glee

Official numbers confirm what Obama officials denied: New START requires reductions only by the U.S..

The results of the data exchange on U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear weapons required under the New START treaty were released by the State Department on June 1. They demonstrate conclusively the truth of what treaty skeptics had said for months: The treaty brought the United States nothing in terms of lowered Russian force numbers.

In promoting the treaty to the Senate and the American people, the Obama administration claimed that New START provided the great benefit of reducing U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear warheads by 30 percent from 2,200 warheads each to 1,550 warheads each. It also placed a ceiling on the number of deployed American and Russian strategic launchers (missiles and bombers) at 700 each. Both sides are required under the treaty to be at or below these ceilings by 2018. The catch here, and the undoubted source of considerable amusement in Moscow, is the now-indisputable fact that only the United States must make actual reductions under New START.
This isn't a lack of leadership skills...It's either a gross negligence of duty or an outright demand at self-immolation!...

Who the f**k enters negotiations on behalf of your own country where the other side has to give up NOTHING and you have to make reductions?????

I swear! He just negotiated with Russia on behalf of Russia!!!!...
