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?
I am left speechless and horrified...
“How will BHO defend us against North Koreas 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?
You’ve got to be sh###ing me! Obama is bound and determined to let any thug have his way with our homeland.
Why do I think we just sold our birthright for a mess of pottage?
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.
“sic semper leftists”?
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?
Wouldn’t China have a say in this, too, no matter what Russia decided to do?
BHO protecting America is like Hitler protecting Czechoslovakia.
If you can’t trust Putin, who can you trust?
Me? It may be time to look for real estate in the Philippines...
A pact that Russia will vaporize the Norkies if they try that?
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.
Sure feels like treason to me . . .
THAT IS AN INSULT TO DOMESTIC FELINES EVERYWHERE!
