I did not see anything Presidential at all from this traitor who is selling out our country.
You said it, now back it up. Traitor? Those are strong words. Sources please.
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.
