    Russia threatens to quit START as US deploys Aegis destroyer to Spain

    About time. Russia should get out of the START. The Start treaty is disadvantageous to Russia as the US has an edge in a conventional war scenario. What the Ameriks are trying to do is to reduce the nuke arsenal of Russia and at the same time increase missile defence deployments in Europe. This will reduce Russia's capability to strike the US without having any negative effect on the american capability to strike Russia and thus affecting strategic balance.
    And to top all this America has placed nukes in countries such as Turkey, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium and Germany (nuclear proliferation when done by america is legal :rolleyes: ). This means Russia will have to take out these countries too in case of war with Amerika, which means Russia needs more nukes for this purpose.
