I later checked the Russian newspapers and did not find any information on the details of the treaty. American newspapers are also unusually silent. It seems like Obama and the Russians keep the details in secret. Why?
On the Russian side, Medvedev and Putin have complete control over the country. Their party controls the Duma, and any member who votes against the wishes of this couple will have their balls cut off. And I mean it literally, not figuratively - Russia has very explicit laws against dissing the current president and his dangerous prime-minister. Just ask Khodorkovsky.
So, the only people who risk being rejected are Obama and his friends. I've found official website which gives details on the treaty. I always assume the worst about Obama, and I am rarely wrong - and in this case I have a strong feeling that somehow he found another way to screw this country. For some reason I believe the treaty should include a strong prohibition on the missile defense program. Obama's website says the following:
The Treaty does not contain any constraints on testing, development or deployment of current or planned U.S. missile defense programs or current or planned United States long-range conventional strike capabilities.Given that Obama cancelled American missile defense program (just ask Eastern Europeans about this) - I can only conclude the Obama put into writing that US will not put the missile defense in Eastern Europe, and won't develop a large scale anti-missile program including space-based defense. Essentially, Obama made the deal with weakenned Russia that Reagan rejected when negotiating with a much stronger USSR.
Any takers who disagree with this prediction?
