You Can’t Trust the Elites, in any Party. Some GOP Senators cave and now seem poised to ratify disaster of a START treaty!

Posted by mrfixit on December 21, 2010

You see it is the elites vs. the US Citizen.  These Senators think they are so smart, but they have no clue they are dealing with an administration of mostly radicals hell bent on dismantling the USA as a world superpower!

Just like gun control, those that cheat, or don’t follow the law gain when there is more law to restrict the ability of the law abiding to put up a defense.

Prior to WW2 we had treaty limits among the major Naval powers to limit the size of the various Navies, the Axis powers, Japan and Germany ignored the limits and commenced a major aggressive arms buildup, an in plains sight while the UK and US did nothing significant to stop it. 

It was the classic “stop or I’ll say stop again”.   A demand without the means to back it up, or a demonstrated weakness by being unwilling to do what is needed for victory, that INVITES an encourages crazed brutal dictators to rise up and challenge more and more the largely peaceful parts of the world, it is in progress RIGHT NOW, but we are having idiot Senators ratify a reduction in our defensive capability as they arm up?

Fools! They are condemning us to repeat history’s errors. Their blind elitist arrogance and false sense of security has made these political elites blind to reality, and they consign the rest of us to pay for the damage of their foolish decisions.

Hard to find, but reasons and rationale this treaty is very bad for the USA:

“When Senate Republicans offered an amendment to clarify the preamble to ensure the United States can develop missile defenses, Democrats blocked it.”

Misguided and devoid of logic, Judith Miller, of Fox News, gets it totally wrong:

The “Right Thing” is to provide a real credible and sustained national defense, not sell out and permit an advantage to the would be enemies, especially ones that won’t play be the rules anyway!  We are dealing with a corrupt tyrannical dictator like regime, why would he deal HONESTLY with us, and we are STILL paying in our defense budget to clean up the mess left from the Soviet Nuclear Submarine program, while they pay to BUILD NEW more capable submarines?!  Oh, and we are cutting the size and capabilities of our aging submarine fleet at the same time?!

This only makes sense if the goal is to bring America DOWN, to make it fair for one world government, ruled by unaccountable elitists.

U.S. Naval Institute – December 23, 2010

  President Barack Obama was outmaneuvered by the Russians and should have abandoned the New START negotiations instead of seeking a political victory, says former nuclear plans monitor Vice Admiral Jerry Miller, USN (Ret).

“The Obama administration is continuing a dated policy in which we cannot even unilaterally reduce our own inventory of weapons and delivery systems without being on parity with the Russians,” Miller told the U.S. Naval Institute in Annapolis, Md. “We could give up plenty of deployed delivery systems and not adversely affect our national security one bit, but New START prohibits such action – so we are now stuck with some outmoded and useless elements in our nuke force.”

After meeting resistance from several Republicans, the U.S. Senate ratified the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia by a vote of 71-26 on Wednesday.

“The Soviets/Russians were done in by Reagan and our missile defense program because they cannot afford to build such a system,” said Miller. “They instead try to counter our program with rhetoric at the bargaining table. And they won by outmaneuvering Obama.  START plays right into their hands.”

Former President Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) is often credited with bankrupting the U.S.S.R. because the Soviets were unable to keep pace with the technology being developed by the United States.

 “We have always been superior in quality of our nuclear force, so we did not have to negotiate with a party we do not trust,” said Miller. “If Obama wanted to save some money and improve national defense, he should have gotten out of the nuke negations and acted unilaterally. START is simply a political victory for Obama.”

Miller, who helped prepare the National Strategic Target List and Single Integrated Operational Plan for waging nuclear war and later participated in arms control meetings with the Soviet government, expressed concern that START could leave the United States vulnerable to other emerging threats.

“The treaty prohibits the conversion of an existing ballistic missile system into a missile defense system,” said Miller. “We might want to do that with a Trident or an ICBM sometime in the future, particularly if the Chinese alleged threat materializes.”

Miller’s book “Stockpile: The Story Behind 10,000 Strategic Nuclear Weapons” details the buildup of nuclear arms and the policies to keep the stockpile under control.

    Here is a very good summation of how the Start Treaty is another nail in the coffin of the U.S.
