    U.S.-Russia arms treaty to face GOP scrutiny in Senate

    I really hope that this treaty is examined and all of it's body cavities are examined with appropriate safety. Seriously I hope that this treaty is taken apart, turned inside out, upside down and whatever to make sure it is the right thing for us. I just hope that this is done for the best for the US and not just because the POTUS is a Democrat. I do not trust Russia, Russians, or KGB stooges and that is exactly who we signed this treaty with.

    [html]Among them is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, who said in a statement Thursday that the Obama administration "will need to meet three requirements if it expects favorable consideration of the START follow-on treaty.""The Senate will assess whether or not the agreement is verifiable, whether it reduces our Nation's ability to defend itself and our allies from the threat of nuclear armed missiles, and whether or not this administration is committed to preserving our own nuclear triad," McConnell said in a statement[/html]

    You know the Russians don't actually eat children right?

    Why not sign a treaty that gives the Russians what they couldn't otherwise get...strategic parity with the US?

    And do it at the same the US is making the world less safe by further limiting it's use of nukes as a deterrent in pursuit of a nuke-free world.




    "We wuv it"

    Sincerely,
    Iran
    North Korea and our friends the
    Russians.

    The updated rules on when we use nukes do not apply to states in violation of the NPT. Or to anyone, really, because they leave in the usual "Well this is our policy but we reserve the right to use the nukes if we really think it's necessary" clause.

    We can't trust the Russian government. It would have been wise to create that nuclear defense shield. You can't irradiate nukes, but you can develop more efficient defenses against them. Obama's decision is foolish and his goals are unrealistic.

    NO, actually I do not know that any more than you do.

    The Russians albeit while they could and did repeatedly hide behind 'Soviet Union claim' murdered Millions of not just their own citizens but also the Citizens of other nations the 'Soviet Union' occupied.
    Soviet Union was just a cover up name for Russia.
    They cannot be trusted, they lie, they cheat, they steal, they kill.
    Even up to the present day if one of their dissident speaks too loudly or into the wrong ears, Putin KGB/FSB will have that person killed.

    Funny...but if it's all about nothing, why are the Democrats and progressives applauding it?

    Why would Obama waste his time if it's much ado about nothing?

    Re: U.S.-Russia arms treaty to face GOP scrutiny in Senate

    I am betting that even if some nation who had signed NPT dropped a Nuke on USA, Obama would just shake his head and say 'must have been an accident'

    Nukes are what keeps Russia and China in behind their own borders.

    When will people realize Obama lives to his own beliefs, he refuses to accept any other beliefs, he refuses to accept that he may be wrong.

    No, no, no...Obama would apologize to them.
