Reporting from Prague, Czech Republic With an agreement to scale back the weaponry of the world's two greatest nuclear powers, President Obama and Russian President Dimitry Medvedev signed a long-sought treaty that still will require the ratification of both governments.

One year after unveiling his vision here for a world without nuclear weapons, Obama returned this morning to sign a treaty with the Russian president that both sides call a major step forward on worldwide arms control.

Would it be too strong to say that Republicans should defecate on this treaty?

Russia has already said they won’t be bound by it.

Vlad Putin didn’t waste any time with our faggy president. Putin sent his stooge. I’m sure Vlad is personally repulsed by 0bama. He knows 0bama is a traitor and no one respects a traitor

You know, libs like to have these nude marches, nude photo sessions, liberal women bare their breasts in marches under the claims of, ahem, being afforded due respect, all pointless expressions of their perversity. While public defecation would be a shocker, it would at least convey the true value of 0bama’s unilateral disarming of the U.S.

this is simply...another friendly treaty....what i refer to as tea time treaties.....or "let's do lunch".

I'm not saying it's meaningless....but push comes to shove....and it's meaningless.

Do we know what’s in this treaty yet ?

We give up all the new stuff, they give up stuff already scrapped, as suggested a few years ago ?

Treaties must be given a yes by 2/3 of the US Senate. Lets hope they get to reject this treasonous agreement

Note that nowhere in the article does it state who is giving up the 30% reduction, in what way they are being “reduced” (are we simply “spreading the wealth”?), how many nukes are in Russia and our arsenals, and what progress has been made to track down missing Soviet nukes and other WMD suspected or known by hostile/rogue players.

Oh, look, it’s the vicious, unprincipled, Communist dictator of an enslaved nation ... and the President of Russia.

We’ll see. I have no faith in Washington to do the right thing for the United States.

“I’m not saying it’s meaningless....but push comes to shove....and it’s meaningless.”

If it’s meaningless when we’re in a state of “shove,” when did it have any meaning? We’re talking about weapons of war, here. War, and the threat thereof, is most definitely all about “shoving.”

I doubt it will even reach the Senate. Obama will circumvent it. Yes, I know about the rules. We saw the rules during Obamacare legislation.

I have heard no mention that Senate confirmation is needed. Perhaps the 0bama-trons have found a way to side-step that Constitutional requirement

I am still awaiting the explanation why we need a peace treaty with Russia, when we are not at war with Russia.
