Vote “No” on Obama’s START treaty.

Congress is currently looking at the START treaty the dreamy eyed Obama team has been pushing for. I have repeatedly pointed out how bad of an agreement this is for the US, specifically because and in typical pre-Cold war fashion, we have the same kind of peacenik morons giving away our critical missile defense capability, by drastically limiting our options. I am not alone on this issue. Considering how adamant State and Obama were that this was not the case, this revelation, which came out as part of the Wikileaks shenanigans of Assange, sure points to the fact that everyone else is worried that the US will get substantive missile defense capabilities.

The Russians sure seem to think so, or they wouldn’t have been so adamant about limiting our capabilities. This Administration is also pulling a Bill Clinton “What’s the meaning of ‘is’” defense to claim the treaty doesn’t obligate the US to give up missile defense, when it clearly does. Then you have Harry Reid pulling a Pelosi on Healthcare Reform, a.k.a government takeover of healthcare, and telling us that they should ratify the treaty so we can find out what’s in it. Way to go morons!

Kill this thing and negotiate, in earnest, so we do not have to give up our defensive capabilities. With North Korea on the verge of giving new meaning to “Coo-Coo for Coco Puffs” and Iran already showing us they will either use the leverage of owning a nuke to destabilize the area or actually just use it to do so, I think we might really want to push that whole missile defense thing to be non-negotiable. I am sure our NATO allies will agree now that we find out Iran has obtained missiles from China that can easily hit Europe, and can carry nukes. I can even go for the idea of sharing the shield with the Russians, since Moscow would also end up being vulnerable, although I bristle at sharing the technology. The Russians have a bigger problem with the Chinese stealing their military tech and copying it than we do.
