  • It's hard to believe what 2 years of this admin. has done to our country on every level. We are failing in every way, I wonder what our children will be faced with in the future as a result of this, imo, travesty?

    Lovin, you are so right! No one will ever trust us, why should they?

  • This was not something the Obama regime wanted out because it shows how little he understands foreign affairs and how ill-equipped he is to be President. To use nuclear secrets of an ally to sway the Russians in to signing a treaty just makes him look like a buffoon. The leaders of Russia and China are rubbing their hands with glee at the thought of dealing with this fool for the next two years.

  • I'm sorry, I don't think its a great big deal. Britain needs us as their ally...I dare say they may have even discussed this,,,


    While the US and Russia have long permitted inspections of each other’s nuclear weapons, Britain has sought to maintain some secrecy to compensate for the relatively small size of its arsenal.


    William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, last year disclosed that “up to 160” warheads are operational at any one time, but did not confirm the number of missiles.

  • I do not think that statement isn't quite right....Britian is a sovereign nation. They are part of the "NATO" like the U.S. is. They also wouldn't share any nuclear info with the U.S. so we can share that with Russia! In a way, that almost would be considered political suicide for
    Obama. From what I have heard or read, Obama and the other past Presidents has wanted a "relationship" for lack of a better term with Russia and the possiblity of other countries so we all can start ramping down of nuclear weapons and the politicians calls this program S.T.A.R.T.~~~Strategic Arms Limitations.

    Sovereign defination~~ (nation or state) Fully independent and determining it own affairs ~~~~ (of affairs) subject to a specified state's control without outside interference

  • It seems very odd . if it is true, there will be a first-class political row in the UK as the coalition government there is none too secure or popular.
