US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets

The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

The complete story is HERE.

After reading this article I thought to myself, EGYPT, now GREAT BRITAIN, it seems that under President Obama, With Friends Like Us, Who Needs Enemies?

You forgot Israel. Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'

Gee, looks like more Republicans should have listened to Romney on START.

We're turning into the laughing stalk of the world. Our word, USED to mean something. Not anymore!

I have been saying since early after Obama took office that our friends should get the memo, they are no longer our friends.

My wife, Noelle, reminded me of Poland being the first snub. He backed the US out of putting a missile defense system, which we had promised them under the Bush administration.

Of course, we had the worldwide apology tour where Obama, the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, bowed(!!!) to not as friendly nations and enemy nations (even Cuba to give a very recent example)

Then Britain was snubbed when Obama returned a bust of Winston Churchill back to England. And now this.

Of course, we can't forget how Obama has railed on Israel for building settlements in non-disputed Israel lands. And then had the Israeli PM escorted out the back of the White House past the garbage dumpsters.

The world should take note, if they have not already (and they have ... see Iran, Tunisia, and Egypt), the USA's friends are now their enemies (for 2 more years).

A somewhat relevant blog post I made back in 2009, concerning Obama's treatment of Israel.

It's a pretty sad day when our long time friends and allies have to be careful of what they tell us in fear of being betrayed.

I just hope our next President can undo all the harm that Obama has caused in our relations around the world.

This news is really disgusting.

I almost fell off my chair when I saw this headline on Drudge, yet I can't really say that I'm all that surprised.

2009 - Obama apologizes to the world for America.
2013 - America apologizes to the world for Obama.

Rich, poor, foreign, domestic - Obama is untrustworthy on an equal-opportunity basis.

In Britain we are fuming, but we are not stupid enough to think this is typical of American people. We also feel the same disdane for our own weak leaders in Britain for not standing up to him.
