Read the above link regarding the definition of Espionage and treason and tell ME, if what Obama did doesn’t qualify as Treason?

 

Why is Russia interested in British capabilities?

Does the Espionage Act belong here?

Barack INSANE Obama (MY daughters name for him) has betrayed the allies of the US for what?  Why is he doing this?

The British and the US are allies.  That’s the special relationship.  We have much in common.  The US has the same basic Religious value.  The same language.  There is much in common.

Obama betrays the Brits to the Russians, can the special relationship survive?

February 5th, 2011 3:00 pm ET

Documents released by Wikileaks suggest that President Obama traded British nuclear secrets to the Russians in exchange for Russian agreement to the new START treaty.    The UK’s Daily Telegraph is reporting that the US asked the UK for permission to reveal some of this nuclear information in 2009 but the British refused.  It appears the Obama administration may have provided the information to the Russians anyway.  This incident raises fresh questions regarding the decades long “special relationship” between the US and UK, a relationship which has served as the foundation for the defense of the western way of life for generations.

Nuclear Missiles

The British government opted for the Trident nuclear weapons system because it estimated it could kill up to 10 million Russians and inflict "unacceptable damage" on the former Soviet Union, according to secret Whitehall documents written in the 1970s. The macabre calculations that underpinned the decision in 1980 to replace Polaris nuclear missiles with Trident have been revealed by a Ministry of Defence memo, marked "personal and top secret". In a nuclear war, Britain would have had to be prepared "to finish what we start", it said.

 

The special relationship began to strain shortly after President Obama’s election.  He famously returned a bust of celebrated British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill rallied the world against the Nazi and Soviet threats and was instrumental in helping the US shape the cold war policy of Soviet Containment.  Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair had presented the bust to President George W. Bush after the 9/11 attacks as a symbol of solidarity between the two countries.  President Obama decided he didn’t want it.

The UK Telegraph has a list of the top ten insults perpetrated against the United Kingdom by President Obama.  Highlights include when a senior diplomat appeared to dismiss the special relationship, and when Obama suggested the US would remain neutral in any future conflict between the UK and Argentina over the Falkland Islands, sovereign British territory.  Papers in the UK have also not forgotten when the Brits were told that President Obama was “too tired” to provide Prime Minister Gordon Brown with a proper welcome.

The United Kingdom has stood with United States as a faithful and reliable ally for almost a century.  Through the struggles of both world wars, the Cold War, conflicts in Asia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iraq again, the US has had no better ally in the world.  We share a common heritage, similar cultures and similar outlooks.  Indeed, taken as whole, Great Britain and her former colonies such as Canada, Australia and India, have formed the core of our struggles against totalitarianism and extremism around the world.

WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain’s nuclear secrets

The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.By Matthew Moore, Gordon Rayner and Christopher Hope9:25PM GMT 04 Feb 2011

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.

Details of the behind-the-scenes talks are contained in more than 1,400 US embassy cables published to date by the Telegraph, including almost 800 sent from the London Embassy, which are published online today. The documents also show that:

• America spied on Foreign Office ministers by gathering gossip on their private lives and professional relationships.

• Intelligence-sharing arrangements with the US became strained after the controversy over Binyam Mohamed, the former Guantánamo Bay detainee who sued the Government over his alleged torture.

• David Miliband disowned the Duchess of York by saying she could not “be controlled” after she made an undercover TV documentary.

• Tens of millions of pounds of overseas aid was stolen and spent on plasma televisions and luxury goods by corrupt regimes.

A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.

Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.

Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.

Professor Malcolm Chalmers said: “This appears to be significant because while the UK has announced how many missiles it possesses, there has been no way for the Russians to verify this. Over time, the unique identifiers will provide them with another data point to gauge the size of the British arsenal.”

Duncan Lennox, editor of Jane’s Strategic Weapons Systems, said: “They want to find out whether Britain has more missiles than we say we have, and having the unique identifiers might help them.”

While the US and Russia have long permitted inspections of each other’s nuclear weapons, Britain has sought to maintain some secrecy to compensate for the relatively small size of its arsenal.

William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, last year disclosed that “up to 160” warheads are operational at any one time, but did not confirm the number of missiles

Why the administration seems to take our relationship with such a staunch ally so lightly is unknown.  Theories abound, many of which are not worth delving into here.  What is known is that the UK is beginning to understand they may no longer have a reliable friend in D.C.  Many around the world are whispering that the US may no longer be a reliable ally and US security guarantees, along with their deterrent effect, may soon become worthless.

This is not a question of whether the US can or should play the role of “globocop”; it is a question of US credibility and understanding our national interests.  If we continue to alienate our closest and best allies in an attempt to appease our enemies, we may find ourselves abandoned in our time of greatest need.

Obama sells out U.K. to Russia despite his popularity there:

In news certain to shock the United Kingdom, where President Obama is popular, every Trident missile supplied to Britain by the U.S. will be known to Russia as part of Obama's arms control deal, according to information obtained by Wikileaks. From the Daily Telegraph:  A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.  Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.  Washington lobbied London in 2009 for permission to supply Moscow with detailed data about the performance of UK missiles. The UK refused, but the US agreed to hand over the serial numbers of Trident missiles it transfers to Britain.  During the negotiations, somebody must have told Obama to lie back and think of England. Unfortunately, it looks like he did. Most galling is the willingness of U.S. negotiators, and thus President Obama, to use Britain to secure the support of Russia for an arms control treaty that puts America at a disadvantage.  In fact, Britain has up until this moment had very strong sentiments for Obama. During the 2008 election, a British poll found that 53 percent felt certain Obama would make the best president:  Barack Obama is overwhelmingly Britain's choice to be the next US president, five times more popular than his Republican rival, John McCain, a Guardian/ICM poll shows today. Carried out ahead of the Democratic candidate's visit to Britain next week, the poll reveals that 53% feel certain he would make the best president, with only 11% favouring McCain; 36% declined to express an opinion.  There wasn't much question from region to region either:  The survey, carried out late last week, found that Obama's support is strongest among male voters - 57% of whom want him to be president. There are small regional variations in support: 50% back him in the south-east, against 57% in the north of England. But overall enthusiasm for an Obama presidency is solid across people of all ages and backgrounds. Unlike the US, there is no evidence of young Britons being keener on Obama than older people.  Even an article in the Daily Mail in December still boosted for Obama, headlined, "Finally something to smile about: Obama's popularity is on the rise as Sarah Palin's takes a tumble." And the London Times reported in July 2009 that British support for the U.S. following Obama's election was up 16 points from the previous year, at 70 percent:  Europeans have grown fonder of the US since Barack Obama became President, but Israeli affections have cooled and the Muslim world has barely noticed the new man in the White House.  These are the findings of a global opinion survey published by the Pew Research Centre yesterday. The poll found the biggest change in mood in Western Europe.  In Britain and most European countries, sentiment towards the US has returned to levels not seen since before the Administration of George W. Bush.  The French love America, with 75 per cent pronouncing themselves favourably disposed towards the US. Britain rings in second with nearly 70 per cent, up 16 points since last year.  This isn't the first time Obama has spurned the British. Within days of becoming president, he returned a bust of Winston Churchill that was a gift to the U.S. He gave the Queen an iPod and the Prime Minister some DVDs.  In other words, here's how Obama has cultivated the "special relationship:" By treating the Brits like a dog.
