The Obumbler gives away the store

I know that a lot of you outside of the US are sitting and wondering what the Obumbler is doing in Moscow. I'm vaguely aware that he's there trying to cut America's nuclear arsenal, I'm savvy enough to realize that the key in that department has nothing to do with the number of American nuclear weapons (to be 'somewhere between 1550 and 1675') but with something that's not even being discussed in Moscow: America isn't going to update its nuclear weapons delivery capability anymore. But Obama has given away the store in another area that's far more dangerous and goes far beyond America's nuclear weapons capability. Ralph Peters explains.
What they really wanted -- and got -- was a US cave-in regarding limits on our nuclear-capable bombers, submarines and missiles that could leave us with as few as 500 such systems, if the Russians continue to get their way as the final details are negotiated.

Moscow knows we aren't going to start a nuclear war with Russia. Putin (forget poor "President" Dmitry Medvedev) wants to gut our conventional capabilities to stage globe-spanning military operations. He wants to cut us down to Russia's size.

Our problem is that many nuclear-delivery systems -- such as bombers or subs -- are "dual-use": A B-2 bomber can launch nukes, but it's employed more frequently to deliver conventional ordnance.

Putin sought to cripple our ability to respond to international crises. Obama, meanwhile, was out for "deliverables" -- deals that could be signed in front of the cameras. Each man got what he wanted.

President Obama even expressed an interest in further nuclear-weapons cuts. Peace in our time, ladies and gentlemen, peace in our time . . .

We just agreed to the disarmament position of the American Communist Party of the 1950s.
The good news is that the administration won't be invading Honduras to reinstall the anti-Democratic President-for-life Zelaya. The bad news is that it won't be available to help out putative allies small countries like Georgia, Ukraine or Israel if they are attacked by their larger neighbors.

In return, the Obumbler got no commitments from Russia on selling nuclear equipment to Iran or North Korea. He got no commitment from Russia not to sell the S-300 anti-missile system to the Iranians.

What could go wrong?

Its consistent with Obama's intent to eliminate America's superpower status - and he's succeeded.

What could go wrong indeed

Dhimmi Carter tried to do this too. It didn't work.
