Don’t think they signed the last treaty. Missile testing?? We test them. Why can’t they?
I guess Putin has more flexibility, too.
Draw a red line?
Barry will send them a letter....
They're saying this goes back to 2008??
Sounds like Snowden sent Obama a memo.
Barry puts the US at risk to fulfill the “trust but don’t verify” disarmament dreams of his commie youth that followed the Soviet propaganda push in the US at the time.
Here is the NY Times’ assessment of Barry’s article in 1983:
“Despite Barack Obama’s sympathetic portrayal, his article seemed to question the popular goal of freezing nuclear arms at current levels — rather than cutting arsenals, the topic of his seminar paper. Mr. Obama wondered if the freeze movement “stems from young people’s penchant for the latest ‘happenings’” and called its focus narrow.”
If you’re a foreign leader, its pretty obvious that U.S. influence and power are rapidly diminishing. Why should the Russians bother to comply with anything when there are no consequences for doing whatever you want? The rest of the world is reaching the same conclusions.
Patience describes a situation where you actually care. Obama hasn't shown patience, he's shown apathy.
Sometimes I wonder if we should really trust the Russians...
"But Putin promised me...."
The Chinese and the Russians are getting whilst the getting is good.
Who can blame them - who wouldn’t?
Backdoor Bath House is a pushover on the international stage.
He won’t contest the Chinese or Russians, but he’ll contest conservatives at every turn. Conservatives are the enemy in his foreshortened cranium.
They don’t need missiles they have Obama&Co on our land.
Another possibility for this week’s NSS (no s***sherlock) award.
When you are a scumbag, untrustworthy liar, don’t be surprised when people do the same to you.
All is not as it seems. A careful reading of the NY Times article and of the Russian test shows that the NY Slimes is banging the drums for a big war.
Up is down.
This article shows the 2007 Russian missile tests: http://cns.miis.edu/stories/070601.htm
The “controversy” being hyped today over the “Intermediate Range” missile test also existed back in 2007, which is that Russia is permitted to develop and test short range ICBM’s with ranges below 500KM, but that the U.S. includes the 200KM Iskander missle on the list as a banned Intermediate Range weapon.
Iskander is named in the treaty, so it is banned even though the U.S.-CCCP treaty only bans the Intermediate range tests of weapons with ranges greater than 500KM.
