    US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets

    Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.
    Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.
    The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.
    Details of the behind-the-scenes talks are contained in more than 1,400 US embassy cables published to date by the Telegraph, including almost 800 sent from the London Embassy, which are published online today. The documents also show that:

    It's going to take years to recover from the disaster that is Obama.

    I have a hard time believing Obama or his staff would jeopardize a 70 year relationship with the U.K., without the U.K.'s knowing it.

    I have said from early on that Obama was Anti-American and this proves it.

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

    Obama has got to go, the sooner the better.

    Happens all the time, but I can see why this would make a diplomatic crisis initiating material.

    A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.
    Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.
    Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.
    Sadly, Obama asked for permission, was denied, did it anyway.

    I'm sure the Brits will have something to say though...

    70 year relationship? i think we've been going around with them in the global playground a lot longer than that.
