U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed the START treaty Thursday, a major arms control agreement that reduces the nuclear stockpiles of both nations.
The new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty – known by its acronym, START – builds on a previous agreement that expired in December.
Obama has called the treaty the “most comprehensive arms control agreement in nearly two decades” and said it would cut the nuclear weapons of the United States and Russia by about a third.
They aren’t really a concern to Obama anyway. He won’t use them even if your child is coughing up their own intestines from a chemical or biological attack while he and his children are safely hunkered down in their government bunker.
