Why do they want to be so deceptive all the time, just do what was promised to do and quit spending tax dollars on junk studies.

"Collina considered it unfortunate that legislators would try to hinder New START, and warned that a failure on America's part to meet its treaty obligations could have significant diplomatic repercussions.

"Russia's already there," Collina explained, having already reduced its armaments below the treaty's requirements with the expectation that America likewise will do so.

"I don't think that's the issue," Hoeven said on the subject. "It's not an issue of not living up to the terms of the treaty, it's about how you structure your forces." The senator believes the ICBM armament ought to be retained as a deployed asset, but that cuts elsewhere would be sufficient to comply with New START.

"We can still meet the requirements," said Hoeven, though adding "I don't think we should make those reductions.""

Politicians make solutions for problems that don't exist, at our expense may I remind you.

"Smith explained that the decision was made as part of the effort to comply with the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty signed with Russia and ratified by the U.S. Senate in 2010. The agreement sets a deadline of Feb. 2018 for further limiting the two countries' nuclear weapons armaments following the expiration of the landmark START I agreement in 2009."

"I don't think they can," Hoeven responded in a telephone interview. "We put right in statute that they're not allowed to use funds to go forward. We'll see what their response is. Hopefully, they'll respond 'OK we recognize that it's the law,' and so they stand down. If not, then we would have to take next steps, and we would have to determine what those are, to make sure they follow the law."

Now that is scary, Hoeven thinks he can mess with an International Treaty...what is he on?? We have to take the next steps once we figure out what they are... blind leading the blind comes to mind.
