Do the Republicans really have to play politics with the security of this country and the world by wanting to slow walk the new Start treaty? The very sort document they were so clamoring for just a few short months ago? Now that president Obama has forged a new agreement with Russia that has the agreement of virtually all of Europe, the Republicans aren't so sure they want this treaty after all. Maybe the numbers of nuclear warheads and the lax security attached to many of them don't really threatened the world after all. At least from their point of view.
They keep saying the world is such a dangerous place. Wouldn't it make sense to get verification of nuclear arsenals as quickly as possible while there is momentum to do so? It seems to me that this is yet another example of how partisan ideology (even though it's not really ideology that's the issue here) put all of us at risk without regard for the consequences of refusing to seize such an opportunity. Senator John Kyle had better get with the program and start (pun intended) to consider the will and future health of his own people.
