Russkis Change START Treaty Terms. We Lose, or Maybe Win

HopeyChangey don't get realpolitik. They don't teach that at Community Organizer School.

The State Duma (the lower house of the Russian parliament) plans to confirm the link between the reduction of the strategic offensive arms and the restriction of antimissile defense systems’ deployment in the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), signed between the US and Russia, Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the Duma Committee on International Affairs says.

The good news?

Since the Russkis will (likely) change the terms, it has to come back to the US Senate for re-ratification.

There, it will die a well-deserved death.
