    Party-first obstruction. Major Garrett, once a Fox News reporter and White House Press Corps member, now reporting for National Review, discusses Senator Kyle's crusade to block the START treaty, set for renewal before the end of December. Apparently, upon Kyle's signal, every Republican Senator will vote against ratification, even if a majority of them don't want to.

    Here is what the letter Kyl and McConnell wrote to Obama on March 15th stipulated.

    The article is dated April 9th, 2010.


    I am in 100% agreement...if these three benchmarks are not met, or if missile defense is linked with arms reduction, Republicans should not vote for it.

    and of course the left never marches in step with left wing commentator/consensus...? this proves what? that the right agrees with the right? left agrees with the left?:eusa_eh:

    do the articles have merit?

    it would help it they released the negotiation text of the discussions held most especially on the missile shield.

    putin was supposed to make a statement on the shield when he got to Lisbon.... did he actually say anything?

    I'd like to know what START calls for before we analyze the machinations surrounding its adoption or not.

    What is this concern about "missile defense"? You guys aren't looking to revive that Star Wars thingie, are you?
