US Betrays England and Gives Russia British Trident Numbers

US Gives Russia British Trident NumbersWASHINGTON: Further evidence of the perfidy of this administration comes to us from WikiLeaks. Apparently the State Department’s quest to “reset” relations with Russia comes at the expense of our ally, Great Britain:

Recent newspaper reports bring to our attention an intriguing WikiLeaks revelation of US-Russian agreements as part of the New START treaty. The agreement, according to diplomatic cables released by the whistleblowers’ website, detailed plans for the Obama Administration to reveal to the Russians the serial numbers of all Trident D5 missiles which the United States provide to Britain.

The issue here lays in the policy which Britain pursues with regard to its nuclear forces. The policy relies on ambiguity: officials never disclose the exact numbers of the nuclear arsenal that is held by Britain. One can well imagine why this was part of the New START process as part of its raison d’être is the reduction of delivery vehicles used by both Russia and the United States. By also disclosing the number of American supplied British delivery vehicles, the Obama Administration is making sure to gain Russia’s trust. Atlantic Sentinel

The NIP has withheld judgement of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, but now we are thinking that disclosures of this type can only help shine light on the corruption of this administration and hasten the day when true reform can take place with elections in 2012. Consider the slights Obama has given to Great Britain:

  • The first act of President Obama was to send back the bust of Winston Churchill that had formerly been prominently displayed in the White House.
  • President Obama visits England and gives the Queen and iPod as a gift. What’s on the iPod? Obama’s speeches.
  • Many British pensioners depend on BP dividends for their retirement. President Obama decimated BP dividends when he attacked BP during his mishandling of the Gulf crisis.
  • Now the Obama administration sold out the Brits to curry favor with the Russians.

It is a fact that Obama’s Marxist father inculcated Barack with a hatred of the British, but this is a sentiment that diametrically opposes the feelings of the vast majority of Americans. In fact, 71% of Americans have a mainly positive view of Great Britain.

The NIP has warned about the folly of the New START Treaty. Now how do you feel about New START, knowing the cost of this travesty of a treaty is the betrayal of England?

Senate Undermines Missile Defense, Ratifies New START Treaty

US Anti-ballistic Workers About to Be Laid Off

US Anti-ballistic Workers to Be Laid Off

MOSCOW: Russia rejoiced today as the US Senate abandoned its duty to protect the interests of the United States by ratifying the New START Treaty:

“We have to give credit to Barack Obama and his team, who exerted such momentous efforts to ensure START ratification in the Senate. Along with Democrat senators, they managed to secure its inclusion in the agenda of the so-called “lame duck session”. And still, the fate of the document was far from certain just a few days ago. Amid the consequent fierce debate, the Republicans started to issue amendments, which could have virtually buried the treaty. Among them was the proposal to withdraw a paragraph concerning links between strategic offensive and defensive weapons. The Voice of Russia

For the first time in US history this lame duck session of Congress ratified a major international treaty. US citizens have overwhelmingly rejected the authority of this Congress in the last election, they should have no authority to bind the US into any treaty, much less one of this magnitude. Proponents say the treaty will make the world a safer place. We disagree. Here are the basic problems in a nutshell:

  • Treaty limits US ability to research and deploy defensive weapons
  • US has already won the Arms race, we have no need to negotiate with the Russians
  • Treaty elevates Russia to superpower status
  • Treaty does not address Russia’s tactical nuclear weapon superiorty, 10x that of US
  • Verification procedures inadequate
  • Treaty exposes Europe to Russian and Iranian threats
  • Treaty outlaws protection against rogue state missiles, the real 21st century threat

Obama’s letter to the Senate regarding the continued viability of missile defense has as much enforceability as a letter from your grandmother. We understand Russia’s interest in passage of this treaty. After all, the development of an effective nuclear shield would undermine its sales of nuclear materials and technology to Iran. Russia applauded Obama’s cancellation of the Poland’s missile shield shortly after taking office.

If you think you are safer now with the Republicans surge in the last election, just look at this list of Republican defectors:

Ten of the 13 Republican senators who voted yes will be back next year: Lamar Alexander, Scott Brown, Thad Cochran, Susan Collins, Bob Corker, Johnny Isakson, Mike Johanns, Richard Lugar, Lisa Murkowski and Olympia Snowe. Washington Post

The question you should be asking yourself is,  “Why did 71 Senators endorse a treaty that prevents the US from developing a missile shield that would render ballistic nuclear weapons useless?” Find the answer to that question and you probably won’t like the answer.

Obama Sells the US and NATO Down the River

November 30th, 2010 No comments

Obama Scuttles Defense ShieldWARSAW, POLAND: Today the Wall Street Journal revealed (below) that as recently as this spring Russia has been deploying tactical nuclear weapons on the borders of our NATO allies. To understand the issues at stake we need to examine some background.

NATO was formed after WWII primarily as a defense against the Soviets and was proven effective during the cold war, leading to the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union. The United States is the primary funder of NATO and is the most influential member of the alliance. For a deterrent against nuclear deployment NATO relied on the principle of mutually assured destruction, which was effective in preventing nuclear strikes for over 50 years.

Now we have a new game, with Russia and Islamic rogue states in play. The proliferation of nuclear weapons renders the mutually assured destruction defense inoperative. What is required is a new European missile defense system to protect against Russia, Iran and others. In 2007 the US started formal negotiations with Poland and the Czech Republic to construct the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System to protect against Soviet and Islamic threats. This was the beginning of a new strategy to permanently protect the free countries in Europe from domination and destruction.

Candidate Obama gave lip-service to protecting Europe with this new defense shield:

His position is as it was throughout the campaign, that he supports deploying a missile defence system when the technology is proved to be workable.  Denis McDonough, Foreign policy adviser to Mr Obama BBC News

But just 4 days after his election he revealed that Obama was lying during the campaign on this issue:

Obama denies Poland missile vow. US President-elect Barack Obama has not given a commitment to go ahead with plans to build part of a US missile defence system in Poland, an aide says. BBC News, November 8, 2008.

In September of 2009 Obama officially scuttled the US missile defense shield in Poland and the Czech Republic. This resulted in destroying the long-standing relationship the US has had with one of its strongest allies while buying nothing from the Russians. Read more…
