    U.S. Naval Institute - December 23, 2010

    President Barack Obama was outmaneuvered by the Russians and should have abandoned the New START negotiations instead of seeking a political victory, says former nuclear plans monitor Vice Admiral Jerry Miller, USN (Ret).

    “The Obama administration is continuing a dated policy in which we cannot even unilaterally reduce our own inventory of weapons and delivery systems without being on parity with the Russians,” Miller told the U.S. Naval Institute in Annapolis, Md. “We could give up plenty of deployed delivery systems and not adversely affect our national security one bit, but New START prohibits such action - so we are now stuck with some outmoded and useless elements in our nuke force.”

    After meeting resistance from several Republicans, the U.S. Senate ratified the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia by a vote of 71-26 on Wednesday.

    And that's why the Joint Chiefs of Staff endorsed START?

    U.S. Military Leaders and Bipartisan National Security Officials Overwhelmingly Support New START

    On Dec. 16, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James Cartwright said "all the Joint Chiefs are very much behind this treaty...we need START and we need it badly." The Joint Chiefs' support for the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty is broadly shared by senior U.S. military leaders and former national security officials from both sides of the aisle, including President George H.W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice, sectrateary of state to President George W. Bush

    It seems like every expert in the US was for START, but that didn't stop the ideologues who seriously lack the hands on knowledge these superior thinkers have to make ignorant claims.
    Why do people make fools out of themselves? Because they are toys of their ideology!

    So his complaint is that this treaty doesn't allow us to unilaterally disarm?

    You dredge up one retired geezer against the treaty and accuse the other poster of cherry picking?

    lol, your debut here was inauspicious enough, and it's not improving with age.

    His points were refuted long ago. Refutations don't expire just because trolls like you keep reposting the same crap.
