Obama to Russia: stop Iranian nuclear weapon and US will scrap missile defence

President Obama today offered to scrap plans for a missile defence shield in Eastern Europe if Russia helped to stop Iran developing a nuclear bomb.

He appealed in Moscow for a new era of partnership between Russia and the United States to fight the spread of nuclear weapons to rogue states and terrorist groups.

"That is why we should be united in opposing North Korea's efforts to become a nuclear power and preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon," he said.

Russia strongly opposes US plans to site the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, which Washington says is necessary to defend against a surprise attack from Iran.

Mr Obama made clear that he was willing to strike a deal with the Kremlin.

"I know Russia opposes the planned configuration for missile defence in Europe . . . I have made it clear that this system is directed at preventing a potential attack from Iran and has nothing to do with Russia," Mr Obama said in a speech to students graduating from Moscow's New Economic School.

How will BHO defend us against North Korea’s missiles, then?

“How will BHO defend us against North Korea’s missiles, then?”

It is clear that BHO does not love America enough to defender. Anyone who does not love America has NO BUSINESS being President of the United States.

China owns our money. Saudi Arabia owns our way of life. Now Russia owns our defense system. What’s left?

BHO said during the campaign he would scrap our BMD program. He meant it! Should be no surprises here.

So, Iran continues to build the bomb, with Russia’s help,

and we dismantle our missile defense.

"I know Russia opposes the planned configuration for missile defence in Europe . . . I have made it clear that this system is directed at preventing a potential attack from Iran and has nothing to do with Russia,"

Is it just me, but I have never heard this given as a reason for the planned missile defense? I thought it was a planned deterrent to a Russian attack?

Obama is such a naive intellectual lightweight that he thinks he's outmaneuvering a people who consider chess a spectator sport.

Saw a couple of Prophecies that the US would nuked by subs off the coasts. China would nuke us from the Pacific and Russia would nuke us form the Atlantic. There are even psychics saying the same thing.

Exactly. Suppose Russia sez: “Hey, we did the best we could, but they got nukes anyway. Now, keep up your part of the bargain.” Obama will gladly comply.

Exactly what I have been saying all along. BHO knows exactly and precisely what he is doing. He went to Moscow to trade away our BMD and he is doing precisely that.

so he is willing to trade a defensive system - he had nothing to do with its development - a system we would not have if he had a vote

assuming the deal works, what will we give russia to handle kim jong - or the next wackjob that wants a nuke

wonder if putin would take 50,000 community organizers to fix that whole mideast thing

Seriously folks, this is the community-activist crap we have occupying the WH, thanks to a broken and indoctrinated school and college system, Gays & Lesbian dollars, Hollywood trash with their multi-miilion dollars donation, ACORN, the NEA, SEIU, NARAL, ACLU, NAACP, and the overt and shameless complicity of the MSM. America is gone! ‘Tis my country no more. Thanks to your fellow Jews and fellow Christians for voting this fraud into office bereft of ideas except the clever bumper sticker slogan, hope and change.

That’s the reason Bush gave for putting the system in Poland. Putin promptly went ape-sh*t, claiming it would reduce Europe’s vulnerability to Russian nukes (yeah sure, like by a factor of maybe 5%).

IF they DID nuke us, they’d go after the coastal and near-coastal metro areas like NYC, LA, Boston, D.C.

Anyone who thinks that’s a possibility should move to Kansas or Iowa (the breadbasket of the third world and dictatorships). They’d be NUTS to nuke their own FOOD SUPPLY.

Then again, most of them ARE nuts so never mind.

Two small wedges left: China needs our business and Russia needs our food. If either nukes us, that will seriously mess up their lunch tickets.
