    Russia nears arms pact approval, warns on pullout

    Russia nears arms pact approval, warns on pullout - Yahoo! News

    The amendments stipulate that Russia could withdraw if military deployments or even plans by the United States or NATO jeopardize its security.
    They highlight lingering rifts over U.S. plans for a European anti-missile shield and Russian concerns over other weapons it fears the United States or NATO could deploy.
    A missile system that weakens Russia's nuclear arsenal would "force us to use the article of the treaty that provides for the withdrawal of a state that feels violated in terms of security," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Duma, Interfax reported.
    It looks like we were lied to by Obama et al again. The Obama Administration insisted that passing the START Treaty would not impact the US antimissile defense systems.

    Please don't act as if you are surprised that Obama was once again lying.

    His record for being caught in lie in the first two years exceeds even President Bush in 8 years and I thought that was impossible.

    The above quote is from the Whitehouse website. I’m just curious how Obama is going to spin this.

    “Durr…I guess I was duped” or “you knew I was a liar when you elected me” or “Sarah Palin made the Russians do it”?

    The American people elected Obama. They deserve their fate.

    There is no technologically feasible defense against ICBMs, and designing such devices would undermine our security in the first place. Have people already forgotten the concept of MAD?

    Let's say you and I have guns. We have them pointed at eachother. If one pulls the trigger, the other will do the same. We both die. Pretty unlikely that either of us would choose to do that. So we stand there, guns pointed.

    Then one day you see me start to put on a kevlar suit. Once I get the suit on, I have the advantage: I can kill you, but you can't kill me. Do you
    A) Allow me to put on the suit
    B) Pull the trigger before I get the suit on, while things are still equal

    http://www.mda.mil/global/documents/pdf/testrecord.pdf

    44 of 57 hit-to-kill intercept attempts have been successful across all programs since the integrated system began development in 2001
    o Includes Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense, Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD), Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), and PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3
    31 of 40 hit-to-kill intercept attempts have been achieved for THAAD, Aegis, and GMD test programs since 2001
    It looks pretty feasible to me. Apparently the Russians seem to think it’s feasible too. Landing a man on the moon wasn’t technologically feasible either, until we decided to do it. Look at how that turned out.

    Mad is almost as outdated as our nuclear arsenal.

    Then you both get bigger guns or better ammo to mitigate the affect of the armor, now the armor is for all practical purposes worthless and all that's been done is that each side now has a greater capacity for destruction.
