    U.S. Gave Away UK Nuke Secrets in Return For Russian Ratification of the START Treaty


    Is it 2012 yet?


    WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets - Telegraph

    From the UK Telegraph

    "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.

    WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets - Telegraph
    "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."

    Remember who voted for this peice of junk. 13 Republicans, 56 Democrats, and 2 independents. START Treaty Passed By Senate not only does Obama have a disreguard for the rule of law and the constitution (As shown in the oil permatorum and the Obamacare ruling) but he is ruining international relations among our strongest allies for years to come. But no doubt the media will fail to report on this as well.

    Well, this is an interesting development.

    Still not sure why we need the New Start treaty. I was under the impression that the cold war was over.

    Reagan won the Cold War. Russia was defeated and is no longer a threat. Who cares?

    We aren't planning a War with Russia. They aren't planning a War with us. What's the point of this agreement. How does it benefit us?

    Nothing good for us. But the Russians agree that the treaty prevents us from establishing a defence sheild and thats perfectly fine with Obama. It's never been about us. Obama is more than happy to stab his allies in the back and hurt our ability to defend ourselves against missiles if it means following his rediculous socialist nuke college thesis that he refuses to release to the public.

    Obama does. He thinks that he can do away with nuclear weapons all togather. Atleast thats what he campaigned on. Furthermore the Russians and Obama have something in common. They both dont want us to have our Nuke missile sheild.

    I personnally question Obama's judgement in throwing those he no longer has use for under the bus.... I know, he looked into Medvedev's eyes and found a friend.....
