So You Really Think That America Ratified The START Treaty?

It looks like the USA faked a passing of the START Treaty just to appease the world and dump it back on Russia. This is the old “balls in your court” move. Lets try to blame the other guy if they back out now…

The problem is that the US Senate sent its resolution to ratify START to Russia with a number of amendments, statements and interpretations which the Russian lawmakers do not accept. These adjustments are in contradiction with the treaty signed by Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama in April…

So what is the biggest issue? As it sits, the straw stressing the camels back is the issue of missile defense. The United States wants to build a global missile defense shield, so it passed an amended resolution (START) saying that the deployment of global missile defense bases cannot serve as a pretext for Russia to pull out of the START-3 Treaty. This just will not happen. Russia will pull out if America continues the games and that is a fact…

There are a lot of these amendments. Oh yes I know that you were told that the USA ratified this Treaty and there were no amendments. Guess what? You were lied too…

If not for the US amendments, the Russian State Duma would have ratified the treaty last week, Foreign Minister Segei Lavrov says. START-3 is a well-balanced, compromise-based agreement and a significant step towards disarmament, stipulating nearly a twofold reduction in US and Russian nuclear arsenals. Under the Treaty, in seven years from now either party will possess 700 intercontinental ballistic missile carriers, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and heavy bombers with no more than 1550 warheads deployed on them.

Well I agree with Lavrov and now I see that I was correct in my last posts…

The START Treaty really has not been ratified by America! But it was heavily amended against Russian wishes and the wishes of the Presidents that signed the document in April and right now Russia says that it will not be attempted to be ratified by Russia until at least January 26th 2011.

Ratify means: To approve and give formal sanction to; confirm. But ratify does not mean to change and amend. Just confirm…

Russia has a lot of thinking to do and they may decide this is not worth the hassle of dealing with America and her lies…
