Russian contradicts Obama: START would limit U.S. missile defense

The Obama administration is insisting that the new Strategic Arms Reduction Talks treaty (START) will not limit U.S. missile defenses. But Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters in Moscow that Russia believes the treaty will limit U.S. missile defenses to current levels and that any increase would result in Moscow pulling out.

The treaty has three levels: Text and protocols on basic rights and obligations and technical annexes. None of the details have been made public.

The treaty limits each side to 1,550 warheads on deployed ICBMs. Deployed SLBMs count toward this limit and each deployed heavy bomber equipped for nuclear armaments counts as one warhead toward this limit.

Also, the treaty will impose a combined limit of 800 deployed and non-deployed ICBM launchers, SLBM launchers and heavy bombers equipped for nuclear armaments.

It will include on-site inspections and exhibitions, data exchanges and notifications related to strategic offensive arms and facilities and provisions to facilitate the use of spy satellites and aircraft for treaty monitoring. It will also require exchanging telemetry data used in missile tests.

According to the White House, START “does not contain any constraints on testing, development or deployment of current or planned U.S. missile defense programs or current or planned United States long-range conventional strike capabilities."

Reading comprehension isn’t taught where Obama went to school. Either that or he got social and affirmative action grades and promotions.

Nope..... just regurgitate everything in front of you without giving it any thought. He sucks at reading and understanding a contract or treaty....... but oh can he read a teleprompter like nobody’s business.

Obama doesn't seem to get this "president" thing.

You're not going door-to-door in friendly neighborhoods anymore, or dealing with people who will be frightened by friendly TV commentators denouncing them for daring to disagree with you.

This guy and Hillary along with the pinheads and sycophants around them are so not ready for prime time.

Not one of them could carry John Bolton's jockstrap.

This is going to be like BJ Clinton's signing Kyoto. The Senate won't ratify but 0bama will strut around as if he's done something amazing.

I’m sure that the goat fornicator and his negotiators know damn well what’s in the treaty. He’s lying about it so people don’t find out that he’s selling our missle defense down the river along with everything else.

Agreed. You would think by now that people would have wised up that no one is this incompetent. What's being done is intentional.

The scary part is how the permanent bureaucracy that undermined W at every turn is going along with all this. If those traitors aren't leaking and trying to derail what Obamao is doing, it means they've been waiting for in place for a statist like him.

Exactly so. Too bad we can’t get rid of the permanent state dept scum. Most are radical leftwingers.

State Department is indeed a big problem.

Obama says one thing the Russian’s say another. Which do YOU believe?

Both have a reputation as known purveyor’s of untruths.

W’s biggest mistake was not doing a Hercules and totally cleaning out the filthy DC stables.

Obama is in way over his head and simply does not have a clue.

Russia has 7,500 to 10,000 tactical nuclear bombs that were NOT addressed by this “treaty”. Russia refused to discuss them. America has about 500 tactical nukes....

The US Senate will have to confirm this treaty. GOP Senators will be able to call witnesses and discuss how Putin sees this differently.

The Senate Dems already "saved" Obama's Presidency by passing ObamaCare. Will they be in the mood to "save" Obama again this summer, while Harry Reid flounders around in search of 2 votes rub together? Will other Dem Senators down in the polls be in the mood for sacrificing themselves to "save" Obama?

This is going to be fun to watch.

I never believe anything an LRB(lying russian bastard)says, but I’m going to make an exception in this case.

It seems that Liz Cheney mentioned this on Fox News Sunday.
