part 3

In an ideal world, the United States and Russia would pursue a new round of nuclear reductions via a treaty that limits not only deployed strategic forces, but also non-deployed and nonstrategic nuclear warheads, which aren't currently limited by any accord. However, the negotiation of such a treaty will be far more time-consuming and complex than the New START negotiations, which lasted about a year. In the meantime, Russia could deploy a new heavy ICBM, the momentum for further cuts could stall, and the two sides could make down payments on modernization plans that lock in excessively high force levels for decades to come.

To avoid these outcomes, the United States could jump start the process by declaring itself willing to reduce its deployed arsenal below the levels in New START if Moscow is willing to reciprocate. It's a step that could save money, reduce Russia's incentive to build a heavy ICBM, and pave the way for formal negotiations on a new treaty that limits all nuclear warheads. Non-treaty-based reductions have been a long-standing feature of US defense policy under both Republican and Democratic presidents.

As they pursue further weapons reductions, the United States and Russia should also pursue confidence-building and transparency measures that establish mutual trust and could be incorporated in future negotiations. Of particular importance are initiatives that address US concerns about Russia's large stockpile of non-strategic weapons and Russia's concerns about US missile defense and high-precision conventional weapons. Projects that might have that effect would include information sharing, joint experiments and studies, and enhanced dialogue.

The pursuit of further nuclear reductions will not be without significant challenges. Russia's willingness to participate remains uncertain and Republican opposition is congealing. Nonetheless, President Obama should make the push he promised in the State of the Union. If he doesn't, he'll pass up a chance to significantly enhance US security

Ah, this is a lie, there is NO bullet (ammo) shortage. We have enough ammo to engage in an all out war for at least SIX months. But we will have a shortage of "training ammo" a few months from now. This is no real big deal.
On Aug 30, 1981 I blew out an engine on a Chinook helicopter in S. Korea. It was the only total engine failure I had in my 21 years of flying helicopter. It was a T-55 ASA engine but it was also the second failure in eight days in my unit. As a result they inspected all the other engines in my unit and condemned six more engines.
Now those six engines would be returned to depot for overhaul but the engine on my aircraft and the week prior where trash. So there we had four of out 16 Chinooks without engines. But there were engines available in WAR reserve status. In other words we needed special permission to get those engines shipped and they would not release them. Sooo, for two months we waited for eight engines to be shipped through normal channels.
They have ammo, tires, medicine, MRE's, etc. all in storage but they will not release them as they are WAR reserves. And they will have enough ammo to train with, just not as much as they would like.

U.S. Marines Rattled by Bullet Shortage
27 March 2013

At least one branch of the U.S. military is scrimping and saving every bullet it can while the Department of Homeland Security is on a bullet-buying spree.

Marine Corps Commandant James F. Amos blames sequester budget cuts.

In a video to Marines, he says,“I ask you to save every round, every gallon of gas, that you take every single aspect, or opportunity, in training to get the most bang for the buck.”

Amos said it’s “no time to do business as usual.”

Things have changed. The landscape has changed,” he said.“I need you to be conservative in the way we do business.”

Oh, bask in the early 1980's they were converting A, B and C-model Chinooks to D-models. New rotor blades, new transmissions, new everything including uprated engines.
Soooo, they started with the A and B-model Chinooks with the 2,60 and 2,850 hp engines and they were sold as surplus. And the people who race unlimited hydroplanes bought them up to replace the WWII piston engines like the Merlin V-12's that flew in P-51 Mustangs.
And then someone told the hydroplane people at they could get 3,750 hp engines from the C-model Chinooks but they could not sell them but they could be "leased". So the hydroplane people leased them and at the end of the year they turned them in and leased newer engines.
They Army units started to get engines from depot, opened up the crates ...... and found highly corroded rebuilt engines!!!! Yep, they DoD civilians had been illegally renting out our engines. They FBI moved in and sent them to prison!!!
Real story!!!

Starting in 1980, they have increasingly used Vietnam War-era turboshaft engines from helicopters (in 1973–1974, one hydroplane, U-95, used turbine engines in races to test the technology). The most commonly used turbine is the Lycoming T55, used in the CH-47 Chinook.

Nuclear weapons cuts will make the United States safer
By Kingston Reif | 6 March 2013
Nuclear arms control is back in the news. After paying little public attention to the issue over the long course of his reelection campaign, President Obama said in his February State of the Union address that the United States "will engage Russia to seek further reductions in our nuclear arsenals." A recent report by the Center for Public Integrity revealed that senior Obama administration officials believe the United States can reduce its arsenal of deployed strategic warheads to between 1,000 and 1,100 without harming national security..........
-- such as the development of a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Verifiable limits on reserve warheads and nonstrategic arms would further enhance stability by addressing Russia's large stockpile of such weapons and ensuring that nuclear warheads are actually eliminated as opposed to merely placed in storage.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!

Now, we have Iran on the edge of deploying their nukes as is North Korea and you think that we can reduce ours and we will be safer? Yes, you and Obama believe that but there are many who think you are foolish.
In the Mid-1930's when German, Italy and Japan were building up their militaries, FDR has his thumb up his azz. And on Dec. 7, 1941 Japan caught us unprepared for war. Japan thought they could bloody our nose and then we would seek peace, but they were wrong. But until we rebuilt our military, we got our azz kicked for about six months. We can not afford to do that in the nuclear age as the next war maybe LOST in 72 hours!
You see, even the Romans two thousand years ago knew that strong military deterred war. Sure, it might not happen next year or the year after, and it may not happen before Obama leaves office, but sooner or later we will pay for not maintaining a DETERRENT!

Illegal immigration to the United States
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The illegal immigrant population of the United States in 2008 was estimated by the Center for Immigration Studies to be about 11 million people, down from 12.5 million people in 2007. Other estimates range from 7 to 20 million........

OMG, only 1,100 ICBs left to defend the US. At an average of 6 nuclear warheads per ICBM, that comes to 6,600 nuclear bombs. And Rogue and those smart Republicans think that is too high a reduction in warheads. We must of course assume that the Russians have an equal number of ICBMs, so that makes 13,200 warheads. China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Israel, France, the UK also have multiple warhead missiles, and I have no idea how many, but for the hell of it, let's say a combined 2,000 missiles x 6 = 12,000 more nuclear warheads. Total : 15,200. Hmmmm, do you think , Rogue, that maybe, just maybe, we should all start reducing those stockpiles a teeny weeny bit? It's like your 10,000 rounds of ammo hidden under your bed, how many bullets do you need?

I'm surprised that a "military" man such as yourself would think that your country has so few warheads. I may even have underestimated the number of warheads per missile (6) as it seems to be more than that.

Read : en.wikipedia.org/.../Multiple_independently_t... ...

"Purpose

The military purpose of a MIRV is fourfold:
Providing greater target damage for a given ballistic missile payload. Radiation (including radiated heat) from a nuclear warhead diminishes as the square of the distance (called the inverse-square law), and blast pressure diminishes as the cube of the distance. For example at a distance of 4 km from ground zero, the blast pressure is only 1/64th that of 1 km. Due to these effects several small warheads cause much more target damage area than a single large one. This in turn reduces the number of missiles and launch facilities required for a given destruction level - much the same as the purpose of a cluster munition.
With single warhead missiles, one missile must be launched for each target. By contrast with a MIRV warhead, the post-boost (or bus) stage can dispense the warheads against multiple targets across a broad area.
Reduces the effectiveness of an anti-ballistic missile system that relies on intercepting individual warheads.[1] While a MIRV attacking missile can have multiple warheads (3–12 on United States missiles and 3-10 on Russian), interceptors may have only one warhead per missile. Thus, in both a military and an economic sense, MIRVs render ABM systems less effective."

So we are talking over 10,000 warheads for the US alone. The number given by Wikipedia that you supplied (you supply one in a blue moon and it's wrong) is low and may be badly defined. I had not used any source for my number of 6, is why I kept it low.

Frist, you give no reference.

Second, it may have taken 3, 4 days for FEMA to move its derri่re, but where does it say it was on account of Chiles's delaying tacticts? Fema is not exactly the fastest-moving bureaucracy in the world, as N.Orleans showed. Show me where it says Chiles delayed the aid. I'll be glad, don't mind at all, to say I was wrong if you come up with it. But you won't. YOU said it, onus is on YOU to find the proof, not me, I didn't say anything about Andrews or Chiles, only asked you to confirm what you accused Chiles of doing, or not doing.
