“I’m the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it. Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of future combat systems. And I will institute an independent “Defense Priorities Board” to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending. Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert, and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.”

He warned us.
One thing we can all agree on about President Obama… He focuses his attention where it is needed least. Americans want jobs – He nationalizes health care. Americans see an emerging threat in nuclear Iran – He signs a nuke agreement with Russia.
That’s what you get when you elect an inexperienced far left radical weaned on Marxism.
FOX News reported:
Reaching anew for peace, President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday signed a treaty to shrink their nations’ nuclear arsenals, the biggest such pact between the former Cold War foes in a generation.
Tenaciously negotiated by even the leaders themselves, the treaty commits their nations to slash the number of strategic nuclear warheads by one-third and more than halve the number of missiles, submarines and bombers carrying them.
In a lavish chamber within the Czech capital’s presidential castle complex, the two presidents put their names to history. The treaty must be now be ratified by Russia’s parliament and by the U.S. Senate, where the White House lobbying effort is under way.
“Today is an important milestone for nuclear security and nonproliferation, and for U.S.-Russia relations,” Obama said. Medvedev hailed the signing as a historic event that would launch a new chapter of cooperation between the countries.
Obama promised last year to reduce America’s nuclear arsenal by 80%… Because with Obama, America is the enemy.
UPDATE: Iran announced today that Russia committed to its agreement for the delivery of the anti-aircraft S-300 missile system to Iran.
