Obama actually manages to get nuclear inspections

  1. The only problem with the inspections is they are being conducted by the Russians and they are being done to our sites.

    Tentative Inspection Program Would Allow Russia to Visit U.S. Nuclear Sites


    Russia and the United States have tentatively agreed to a weapons inspection program that would allow Russians to visit nuclear sites in America to count missiles and warheads.

    The plan, which Fox News has learned was agreed to in principle during negotiations, would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.

    Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said publicly Tuesday that the two nations have made "considerable" progress toward reaching agreement on a new strategic arms treaty.

    The 1991 Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START, expires in December and negotiators have been racing to reach agreement on a successor.

    Clinton said the U.S. would be as transparent as possible.

    "We want to ensure that every question that the Russian military or Russian government asks is answered," she said, calling missile defense "another area for deep cooperation between our countries."

    On another critical issue, Lavrov declared that it would be counterproductive to threaten Iran with more sanctions over its nuclear program -- as he resisted efforts by Clinton to win agreement for tougher measures should Iran fail to prove its program is peaceful.

    Clinton visited Moscow on her first trip since becoming America's top diplomat, in an effort to gauge Moscow's willingness to join the U.S. in imposing sanctions.

    Clinton said the U.S. agreed it was important to pursue diplomacy with Iran.

    "At the same time that we are very vigorously pursuing this track, we are aware that we might not be as successful as we need to be, so we have always looked at the potential of sanctions in the event we are not successful and cannot assure ourselves and others that Iran has decided not to pursue nuclear weapons," she said at a joint news conference.

    Iran insists it has the right to a full domestic nuclear enrichment program and maintains it is only for peaceful purposes, such as energy production.

    President Obama -- who visited Russia in July -- has vowed to "reset" U.S.-Russia relations. On Tuesday, Clinton apologized for missing that meeting because of a broken elbow.

    "But now both my elbow and our relationships are reset and we're moving forward, which I greatly welcome," she said.

    She was to meet with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev later Tuesday.

    Well we dumped the missle shields for the Russians, now we are letting them inspect our missle sites so they know exactly what we have and for what?

    BTW, maybe someone ought to send Obama a memo and tell him that Medvedev ain't running the Russia.

    Yeah, my vision was correct, BO is the fourth term of FDR, second term of Jimmy Carter, LBJ, etc... the economy is sputtering away there BO, if it's not up and running by elections, 2010, no more free candy and ice cream after school.. he's so cute with those big ears and his little teleprompter...

    These Democrats have destroyed the Black family in the US and they still can get away with calling me a racist... guys like BO, an attorney in the race industry, have sued the private sector employers until we would have to have rocks in our head to hire a Black worker for fear of a lawsuit, then they tell the Blacks that the lack of jobs is racism... There is a lot of talent absolutely going to waste in that Black population that could be driving the engine of American prosperity... Blacks buy it, they get a welfare check and a ticket in the Jessie Jackemup lottery and the right to diss whites anywhere, any time with impunity... talk about some token payments, forty acres and a mule was a better deal...

    Democrats, ruthless in their acquisition of power and weak in the face of evil.. they are evil really, anybody that would do that to Black people to get some votes is evil.. anybody that would lock away that much talent from the economy is evil...

    Obama is weak, he removed the missile defense and gave Putin inspections... what a joke... Putin reneged on Iranian sanctions.. maybe he wants some payments like the guy in North Korea....
  3. This is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
