VIENNA (Reuters) - China called on the United States and Russia - which hold the vast majority of the world's nuclear warheads - on Monday to make further "drastic" cuts in their atomic arsenals.

A senior Chinese diplomat also told a meeting in Vienna that the development of missile defense systems which "disrupt" the global strategic balance should be abandoned, a possible reference to U.S. plans in Europe that have angered Russia.

A new U.S.-Russian arms reduction treaty will cut long-range, strategic nuclear weapons deployed by the two Cold War-era foes to no more than 1,550 on each side within seven years after it came into force in February 2011.

But they still have by far the most nuclear arms - a fact stressed by the Chinese representative on the opening day of a two-week conference to discuss the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), a 1970 pact to prevent the spread of atomic bombs.

Don’t worry . . . our pencil neck geek Kenyan-born muslim traitor will do anything that the Chicoms want. He’ll sell us out in a minute if he hasn’t already done it.

The only difference between the traitorous behavior of Clinton and this illegal alien is that Clinton liked females.

China buys a US president then publicly whines about about the strength of the US military technology and wa-la, the US president capitulates and China grows in military strength. Bill Clinton the impeached, actually stated publicly that he believes that the US should not be the only world's superpower. If I'm not mistaken I think slick's comment had to do with the Lorral Corps’s transfer of top secret / classified rocket tech to China under his watch. Enemies within will be our demise.

If 1000 nuclear warheads are a credible defense, additional warheads make the defense even better and the world safer. The closer you get to a credible defense is the closer you get to war. If both sides have an immense overkill then neither side will launch a first strike. In particular a country that has no regard for its own citizens uses a different model on what is an acceptable loss in relationship to citizens and infrastructure.

More warheads on each side assure peace. To few warheads on our side invites an attack on our nation.
