And, yet, how do we convince Russia to get on board again for talks if we don't hold up our end of the bargain on the START treaty to reduce nuclear weapons between our two countries? Ask the Republicans because they are blocking the passage of this treaty in a continuance of their cynical campaign to prevent President Obama from getting a victory. This is coming from the same Republican party that claims to be the toughest on issues of defense!! Not only that, but this START treaty was originally the brain-child of their St. Ronald Reagan!! I don't think even Reagan would find a place for him in today's rapid Republican party.
The Republicans are so obsessed with defeating President Obama that they are risking a lot internationally. Russia is a must partner on resolving issues around North Korea, China and Iran. If we can't keep their trust then any hope of getting much co-operation will dwindle. All because of political gamesmanship.
