    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.
    I understand and to a point agree with those sentiments. However, please don't blame the entire United States. Americans regard the British as friends and worthy allies, even if we don't always see eye to eye. It is that dumbo currently residing in the White House... another reminder that never EVER should a graduate of Harvard Law School (as we are also learning in Taiwan) be permitted to become head of state/government ANYWHERE in the world EVER again!

    The special relationship between US and UK lies within the people. This .... incident has not changed it nor will it. But I do not view US Government as a friend or ally of UK

    Obama has been Anti British the moment his ass sat on in that Oval office.

    What is done cannot be changed but we should learn from it. UK should start drawing back from US foreign policy including our troops and either cancel our entire Nuclear project --- what is the point of it? What stops Russia selling it on? Or restart again with absolutely no US hand in it at all.

    Heh. With allies like us, who needs enemies?

    I can't wait for 2012. I really can't. Because I just cannot wait to see what kind of incompetent lunatic the American people decide to follow President Obama with. I'll even make sure to bring a fiddle to the polling booth.

    If this doesn't prove to everyone worldwide that Obama is a socialist-lover, I don't know what will. And we can thank our left-wing friends for voting this treacherous clown into office.

    Yeah I ain't happy about all this, but the UK ain't going to war with the US.
    My 2p worth.

    I don't blame America for working in it's own interests, I blame the UK government for being naive about what our relationship means at a political level.

    /shrug a non story. Not the first time nor the last time the US pisses on its allies. Bush did it all the time, even in public as we all remember.

    Per the article, the U.S. and Russia already share nuclear arsenal information. The Brits don't like sharing those numbers and have wanted to keep things hush hush. It seems Obama blew that for them.

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.
    This isn't a practical issue but a strategic one.

    The buck stops at the President and always has. No need to change it now when it's inconvenient.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes indeed.
    It is the political elite who need to lose their rose tinted glasses.

    The British people have been aware for a very long time the US Government is not our friends.

    Huh. I was under the impression the new administration was top notch as opposed to Cowboy Bush. Seems I was wrong.
