BREAKING! Russia Moved Nuclear Weapons near NATO Allies

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Russia moved nuclear weapons to installations near our NATO allies.  According to WSJ:

The U.S. believes Russia has moved short-range tactical nuclear warheads to facilities near North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies as recently as this spring, U.S. officials say, adding to questions in Congress about Russian compliance with long-standing pledges ahead of a possible vote on a new arms-control treaty.

U.S. officials say the movement of warheads to facilities bordering NATO allies appeared to run counter to pledges made by Moscow starting in 1991 to pull tactical nuclear weapons back from frontier posts and to reduce their numbers. The U.S. has long voiced concerns about Russia’s lack of transparency when it comes to its arsenal of tactical nuclear weapons, believed to be many times the number possessed by the U.S.

So, to summarize, President Obama wants to enter into a decade-long nuclear treaty with a country that recently moved tactical nuclear weapons closer to our allies.

Americans need to understand that serious problems exist with the President’s nuclear treaty and that the Russians have a long history of cheating on their treaty obligations.   It is time Senators and the press start paying attention to the issues.
