 Radical Obama Arms Negotiator Negotiates Away Nuclear Deterrent Vs. Russia

Posted 06:48 PM ET

Gottemoeller: A Russian apologist gives away U.S. deterrence.

National Security: As Russia test-fires new, updated ICBMs on the heels of its Ukraine invasion, Obama's top arms negotiator is busy downsizing and mothballing America's nuclear arsenal and destroying our deterrent.

Thanks to Undersecretary of State Rose Gottemoeller, a left-wing peacenik and old Soviet apologist, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is inching dangerously closer to first-strike capability.

Gottemoeller, a longtime anti-nuke activist, is the architect of the disastrously one-sided 2010 U.S.-Russia New Start deal that slashes America's nuclear arsenal from 5,000 deployable warheads to just 1,550.

In a major concession to Moscow, the deal also limits our development of missile defense interceptors.

The administration won't even certify to Congress that Russia is complying with its end of the deal (the requirement was removed from the last budget deal). That's because it's not. And while we're gutting our nukes, Russia is upgrading its arsenal.

Moscow's nuclear modernization program includes new warheads and delivery systems, both missiles and bombers. Yet, "We are not developing new nuclear weapons or pursuing new nuclear missions," Gottemoeller recently clucked.

Worse, the administration has agreed not to even test our aging nukes for reliability. Gottemoeller is pushing the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty as a top priority.

Despite her overtures — or perhaps because of them — Moscow has toughened its posture toward the U.S. and is no longer interested in arms control talks.

No matter, Gottemoeller is fine with disarming America unilaterally, if necessary.

She proposes cutting our strategic warheads to as low as 300. Next, she wants to cut tactical or battlefield nukes, both deployed and non-deployed, even though Russia has a massive 10-to-1 advantage in such weapons. She even wants to ban fuel production.

How can she do that without a treaty? Easy. Obama can make an executive agreement, bypassing the difficult Senate ratification process.

Like her boss, Gottemoeller thinks America is a global "bully" and that its nuclear superiority has created a global arms race. She argues the U.S. must show humility by signing nuclear disarmament treaties and become strategically equal with Russia.

"According to colleagues of Gottemoeller who worked with her in the private sector," national security expert Bill Gertz recently said, "while an arms control analyst at the Rand Corp., she was part of a group of arms control advocates dubbed 'the Apologensia' — specialists and officials who frequently dismissed or played down Soviet and later Russian non-compliance with arms control agreements."

Most Cold War babies grew up hating the Soviet Union. Not "Rosie" Gottemoeller.

She admired the former communist superpower. Her father told her the Soviets were better at science, so she studied Russian and immersed herself in Soviet propaganda. She's visited Moscow so many times she now considers it her "second home."

With her sitting across the negotiating table, no wonder Moscow is thumbing its nose at arms reduction.

No wonder a Russian general recently threatened to take preemptive military action against U.S. and allied missile defenses in Europe.

No wonder Russian strategic nuclear bombers are flying so close to Alaska and California.

And no wonder Putin has no problem marching into Ukraine. He knows nothing will happen.

His Soviet-style power play shows just how dangerously naive Obama and his nutty no-nuke advisers are. Gottemoeller's ambitious plans for further denuclearizing the U.S. will only invite worse military aggression.

Is there anyone in this admin who doesn't hate this country.

I'm not defending the twit, but the difference between 5,000 deployable warheads and 1,550 deployable warheads doesn't seem that big to me.  To my mind more important are (a) the type, yield, and technological sophistication of each warhead, and (b) the actual state of readiness of those warheads; i.e., how much lead time is needed to get one of those things operational and in the air, should the need arise?
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.
