You have to believe that Putin scratched his head after Obama bowed down to him and went on to abandon our Eastern European allies by giving up missile defense in Eastern Europe, and routed any American advantage by signing START.... Putin must have said, "This is too easy, it must be a trick!"
No, Putin, it's just an enemy in the White House. Obama sold out America for START and, according to new Wiki docs, he sold out the UK, too.
Here is a real president's take on START: John Bolton: New Start Is Unilateral Disarmament -- WSJ.com
The centerpiece of "New Start," the arms-control treaty that President Barack Obama signed with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in April, is its reduction in nuclear warheads. Less well-understood—but profoundly misguided—is the treaty's return to outmoded Cold War limits on weapons launchers, which will require the United States, but not Russia, to dismantle existing delivery systems. This could cripple America's long-range conventional warhead delivery capabilities, while also severely constraining our nuclear flexibility. We will pay for this mistake in future conflicts entirely unrelated to Russia.
In pursuing New Start, the Obama administration has essentially jettisoned the 2002 Treaty of Moscow, which only dealt with the limitation of nuclear warheads that were operationally deployed. That freed large numbers of U.S. launchers (land-based and submarine-based ballistic missiles, along with heavy bombers such as the B-2) to carry conventional payloads world-wide—a concept known as "conventional prompt global strike."
Such delivery flexibility is far more important to America than to Russia, given our global interests and alliances. Its wisdom was evident after 9/11, as we fought in Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond. New Start encumbers us with unnecessary constraints that will distort strategic priorities and weapons-development for decades. (read the rest)
According to a report on Fox, Obama asked England if he could give the Russians information on Britain’s nuclear forces as a bargaining chip. England said no.
Obama did it anyway.
As I laid out meticulously researched and proved in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America, Obama is abandoning our allies and relinquishing American hegemony. Our "special relationship" with Britain and Israel is all but in ashes.
Now this .......
The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain's nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.
Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.
The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.
Details of the behind-the-scenes talks are contained in more than 1,400 US embassy cables published to date by the Telegraph, including almost 800 sent from the London Embassy, which are published online today. The documents also show that:
• America spied on Foreign Office ministers by gathering gossip on their private lives and professional relationships.
• Intelligence-sharing arrangements with the US became strained after the controversy over Binyam Mohamed, the former Guantánamo Bay detainee who sued the Government over his alleged torture.
• David Miliband disowned the Duchess of York by saying she could not “be controlled” after she made an undercover TV documentary.
• Tens of millions of pounds of overseas aid was stolen and spent on plasma televisions and luxury goods by corrupt regimes.
A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.
Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.
Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.
Professor Malcolm Chalmers said: “This appears to be significant because while the UK has announced how many missiles it possesses, there has been no way for the Russians to verify this. Over time, the unique identifiers will provide them with another data point to gauge the size of the British arsenal.”
Duncan Lennox, editor of Jane’s Strategic Weapons Systems, said: “They want to find out whether Britain has more missiles than we say we have, and having the unique identifiers might help them.”
While the US and Russia have long permitted inspections of each other’s nuclear weapons, Britain has sought to maintain some secrecy to compensate for the relatively small size of its arsenal.
William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, last year disclosed that “up to 160” warheads are operational at any one time, but did not confirm the number of missiles.
UPDATE: Armaros railed
Like Hitler. First he goes for the Jews than for Great Britain.
Your book should have been titled, Obama s war against the West. As he is against the West not just America.
There isn't an ally he doesn't despise.
He wants a nuclear free world starting with disarming Israel, UK and France while making sure Iran and China can tower over us with theirs. Not to mention Russia.
He criticizes France who dared move against burkas, attacked the British in speeches, insulted their icons and Monarch.
While he went to Cairo defending hijabs.
Kept silent when Iranians rose against the mullahs and is throwing Mubarak to the Jihad. He ushers the Dalai Lama through the trash and hosts the Chinese communists with a communist anti American song played at the WH. A song which celebrates American corpses in Korea fighting against Kim and his patron China.
Russia is after Europe. They make no secret about it. They want to disarm Europe so they can move against Poland and their former colonies which used to be part of the Warsaw pact.
Commie in chief rushes to oblige.
As Ayers commanded, the Russians must take control of the West.
The West is racist, Islamophobic and socially unjust. It must be destroyed.
The future is Islam, Russia and Communist China.
