US and Russia Sign Nuclear Arms Reduction Treaty, Wingnuts Freak Out

World • Views: 2,407

Today, President Obama and Russian President Medvedev signed a historic nuclear arms reduction treaty, reestablishing a nuclear inspection agreement that lapsed along with START last December.

Wingnut blogs are going bonkers, of course, because that’s what they do. Pamela “Shrieking Harpy” Geller has a representative comment, delivered with her characteristic taste, class, and blatant racism:

Obama says to our enemies, bring it on, we won’t fight ya — leaving us bare naked vulnerable like a virgin slipped a Rohypnol on her first date with a Chicagoland gangsta.

But the former Secretary of State for Ronald Reagan, George Shultz, says the Gipper would have approved.

“President Obama has picked up on the notion that we can seek a world free of nuclear weapons, and that was very strongly felt by President Reagan,” the Gipper’s former secretary of State, George Shultz, told me by phone from his home near the Hoover Institution in California, after returning from a meeting with Obama in Washington on Tuesday.

“What he’s proceeding toward is trying to get to a world free of nuclear weapons,” Shultz said. “And how do you do that? You take a series of steps. First of all, since most nuclear weapons that exist are in the hands of Russia and the United States, you’ve got to start there. And since the START Treaty that was proposed by President Reagan expired last December, it’s important to get it replaced with a treaty that has verification permissions in it and continuous investigations.”

Shultz described the treaty’s broad outlines as containing “relatively modest reductions” but concluded, “I think it’s a constructive step.”

In today’s right wing world, Ronald Reagan would have been ostracized as a RINO.
