    Russia is what is left of the Soviet Union and you know it. Russia was the core of that Union.

    I personally see no reason to expel Russia from the organization, though I don't see how we could not have relations even if they were removed. We probably should start looking to add China and India.

    According to Obama, the subject is nuclear proliferation.

    "The amount of loose nuclear material that is floating around in the former Soviet Union, the amount of technical know-how that is in countries that used to be behind the Iron Curtain'' would pose a greater threat without Russia's cooperation, Obama said.
    Does Obama know Russia has aided Iran in developing nuclear capabilities?
    Does Obama know Russia threatened the US because Americans want a missile "defense" shield to prevent Iran from attacking the US?

    Obama appeases a well known terrorist nation. :eusa_eh:

    Yes, the same Russia that has supplied nuclear capabilities to Iran and cries about the US putting defenses in place against Iran's nuclear capabilities.

    I see this as terrorist appeasement.

    The carrot has failed, maybe the stick will work?

    The Cold war never ended, Russia just tricked us into thinking it did, so we would stop out spending them and give them time to catch up.

    You know, this never would have been an issue if TR was elected instead of Wilson.

    Just saying.

    We are going bankrupt thanks to the lack of an energy policy. I don't think we are going to be "out spending" anyone.

    Bush's tax cuts gave American taxpayers record tax revenues. The Govt. has a surplus of the taxpayer's money!
    Better defenses and tax cuts are in order.
