    However, I'm not really sure what giving them serial numbers will do. So they have a better idea of how many Trident missiles the UK 'might' have. How does that help Russia?
    Yeah, they'll know Britain has *at least* x missles. But they know they have more, just not how many more. Which kind of makes this knowledge not very useful.

    If there's one good thing they did, its that it helped give our diplomatic forces some spotlight. Most of these reports the diplomats put a lot of time into and most get barely a skim. It's nice they get appreciated for once.

    No one in their right mind would do this and expose out allies to this.

    Obama has got to go, the sooner the better.
    He did not give the Russians information on our nuclear arsenal. This at best could prove he is anti-British. Of course, it is really quite useless to give them serial numbers. If the Brits lob a few dozen nukes at Russia they are not going to be taking the time to check the serial numbers before they retaliate. Knowing exactly how many there are, we already have a rough idea, also won't do much good if they do not have any defense system capable of getting them all. Plus, who says we have to give them the exact number? If we give them bogus serial numbers or leave out a few dozen nukes the Russians will be none the wiser.

    If our relationship with the Brits is damaged by this don't you think it would be more the fault of the people who passed this information along without telling the British?

    Demon, if we really tried to kill civilization with nukes, we could do it now. If we focused the world's energy on building just nukes, in 30-40 years we'd have enough to knock the moon off its orbit and into earth.

    personally, i'd rather know the truth about what my Government is up to.

    the US should be more ashamed than usual. this is the respect that they show their allies? at the end of the day all they have proven is they have no loyalty to anyone. they have no true allies in their minds, just countries that are usefull for a time.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Re: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets

    If confirmed as true .... Someone remind me again why British soldiers are still fighting alongside American soldiers?
    We British should take this as a final nail in the coffin of this bull**** one sided relationship and a lesson to never trust the US.
    It's time for UK to become completely independent with its weapons and outside of US control. They can't be trusted

    **** you Obama.
    Edit: And for those who say it is no big deal, well. Why doesn't US publish it's nuclear arsenal online or email it to China and we'll call it evens? I didn't think so.
