The United States is the protector of many, a threat to none.
Russia is a threat to many, a protector of none.

Do not be fooled for one minute to believe that the START Treaty will help eliminate nuclear weapons around the world. This Treaty is between the United States and Russia – not Iran, North Korea and many others. Pure transparency with other countries is extremely risky when it comes to national defense, especially in a very weakened economy.
Limiting ourselves for the sake of “appeasement” is not the answer and puts our nation at a disadvantage. History has shown that “appeasement” does not make people love and come together.
The START Treaty is appeasement and an insult.
