I have mixed feelings about this. If we think of England as it used to be, then this is outrageous and beyond acceptable and Obama needs to be impeached and maybe jailed immediately. If you think of England as it is today, a place where the MI6 even said if it wasn’t for US surveillance on England, it would be a source near constant horrifying terrorism to the world, then suddenly I want Russia being able to disable British nuclear weapons as I think they may be in the hands of Islamics within a few years.

In an incredible breach of trust with an ally of two centuries, United States President Barack Obama secretly agreed to give Russia sensitive information on Great Britain’s nuclear arsenal in order to sweeten the pot for a treaty deal with the former power that was once known as the Soviet Union. WikiLeaks, which has revealed many recent foreign affairs secrets, had kept the information cold.
Obama intends to sign the agreement with Russia next week and this revelation is certain to enrage conservatives on both sides of the pond. The news of this arms deal should cause alarm to all of America’s allies about just how smart it is or isn’t to be a friend of the United States. The relationship between the United States and Great Britain has been referred to as “special” for decades but it has become apparent that Obama has nothing but contempt for it.
On his first day in office Obama had the statue of Winston Churchill removed. A couple of months later he was ice cold to then Prime Minister Gordon Brown, despite the fact that he was a fellow leftist. But this betrayal of nuclear secrets to Russia trumps all of that. Britain has long maintained the need to keep their nuclear power arsenal a secret due to its relatively small numbers in comparison to the powerhouses of the United States and Russia.
WikiLeaks also revealed that the Americans were trying to get dirt on British foreign officials with tidbits on their private lives. It was learned that the only way Russia would consider making an arms deal with the United States was if they were given information about Britain’s nuclear capability.
