Andrei Putin puts one over on Obama and gets the US to betray the Brits secrets

All my life the US has had a special relationship with the Brits.

Ronald Reagan helped Maggie Thatcher during the Falklands War - it was a given.

And George W Bush had a bronze bust of Sir Winston Churchill, on loan from British Government in pride of place in the Oval Office. Obama was given the option of retaining it but pointedly sent it back.

Anyway, thanks to wikileaks we now know that as part of Obama's much vaunted START treaty with Russia he has agreed to supply the Russians with details of Great Britain's trident missiles.

That's just ... bad. But then, not unexpected, from the perspective that states tend to look to their own interests first. It's always been the way, unless they consider themselves beholden to God, and thus having to act in an honourable way.

I cannot wait for 2012 to roll around so that we can finally be free of that embarrassment.

Not surprising in the least, the fellow despises his own nation and wants to sell it down the toilet, don't expect anything less than betrayal for allies.
