US discussing giving Russia missile defense data
AP (Administration Propaganda) ^ | 5-8-13 | DESMOND BUTLER

Posted on 05/08/2013 8:05:16 PM PDT by TurboZamboni

WASHINGTON—The head of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency says that the Obama administration has discussed declassifying key data on U.S. missile defense in order to provide it to Russia. The administration has been exploring how to ease Russian concerns that the U.S. missile defense shield is aimed at countering Russia's nuclear arsenal.

Arms control advocates have suggested that revealing missile interceptor capabilities could provide a breakthrough on an issue that Russia says stands in the way of nuclear arms reductions. But doing so would provoke charges by Republicans that the administration is compromising national security to appease Moscow.

Why doesn’t he simply order a huge sign painted on every significant building in the United States that says, simply, “Aim nukes here!”

This guy really does intend to destroy the US one way or another....

If we and they, as the powerhouses of the northern hemisphere, united in common defense against the islamic world, then fine.

But Obama simultaneously worships the soviet era of the Russians, and is trying to push homosexuality, atheism, and muslim love on them today.
It’s a very bizzare policy we offer. They will happily accept anything we give them, and probably give us nothing in return.

As for them not trusting our motives with missile defense in Poland, thats just smart. Who could look at current US foreign policy and find anything coherent besides atheism, homosexuality, and islamophilia?

Reagan offered to, in exchange for things they did not do. But he did not just call up and offer it to them for nothing. But anyway,,that was back when they were the atheist marxist government, and we had a strong leader who put national interests first. Now its the other way around.

There won’t be many such calls because most in power themselves have a treasonous mindset.

The history of anti-missile systems has been odd. During Nixon’s presidency the US and Russia negotiated an ABM treaty restricting how far the two nations could develop anti-ballistic missile systems.

It never made sense to me to limit development of a defensive system, but it became all tangled up in the mutually assured destruction thinking of the Cold War. But for Obama to just give Russia technical data on any of our military systems is insane. No one can predict what direction Russia will go in the future. Just as likely they’ll end up much closer to China.

Stories such as this again raise the question of whether Obama is that inept and incompetent, or whether he is intentionally weakening the US. And it can always be said that the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

I honestly don’t know if this fly infested unclean one actually believes the lie that we have no external threat to this country, for which there would be no need for a nuclear deterrent, or if something even more deceptive is at work here? Either way its dangerously naive and arrogant,

We couldn’t find a better choice to play the role of Belshazzar at the end, all we need next is the handwriting on the wall and its over for us,

“ease Russian concerns that the U.S. missile defense shield is aimed at countering Russia’s nuclear arsenal.”

What??? Of course it is to counter Russia’s arsenal, and anyone elses.

He’s buried us economically. Working on socially, with moral decay and trying for class/race warfare.

The icing on the cake for this traitor is to weaken the U.S. military. Pushing the gay agenda is but one way. Helping the Russkies and cutting the nuclear arsenal is another.

Unfortunately the fact that 0dumb0 got elected for a 2nd term, after destroying the economy & bankrupting the country means nothing to the RAT bastard, commie pig organizer, or the retards that voted for him.

I think 0bama does not see any foreign enemies for the U.S. if he appeases China, Russia & the muzzie nations. The only enemies that 0bama & his fellow conspirators see are white, white, conservative, patriotic, Christian Americans.... and gun owners as well.

The SHTF has got to happen one of these days, and the sooner the better as far as I am concerned. I am tired of having to put with liberal RAT bastard demoRATs.

To make things clear, Russians has both a technology and functional missile defence system, designed and deployed in earlier 1970s before it was prohibited by treaties which made development of similar technology for USAF impossible.

So let me get this straight.. The Bamster declassifies information in order to give it away to foreign countries but classifies information in order to keep Americans (such as whistle blowers) from seeing it? This shows whose side he’s on.

Russia will never ever end up close to China. Not anymore. They are about as natural allies today as Hitler and Stalin were.

There are no common interests between two nations right now and it only will make worse in a future. Russia has nothing to want from China and China wants Russian technology, natural resources and land.

It is not exactly a ground for cooperation, more like a platform so be at war at the time.

It's two different ways of saying the same thing. He is ideologically incompetent - i.e. living in a dream world of one big happy commie paradise.

I could see a quid pro quo, but Obama is talking about a giveaway. Certain U.S. ballistic missile sensors and intelligence assets were fully disclosed to the Soviets, as part of SALT III. They had the drawings, specifications and source code, Soviet Generals were allowed to tour the facilities on locations that even today require a letter from a general for a U.S. citizen to have access to.
