The US proposal does sound very one sided in the link
... United States, which is offering instead a joint data fusion center that would allow both sides to have simultaneous access to missile launch
data from sensors in NATO countries and Russia, giving both sides a full, real time picture of potential threats.
So would Russia also have a picture of what is going on in the US? Intel aside, the real issue is control and who gets to push the button, when, where
and why. Considering all the history and blood behind START it has been impressive to see them all sitting in a room. Now that the technicalities are
getting worked through, fighting is part of the military culture. With the UN divided over Iran, it is only natural that START is getting shaky.
The biggest problem confronting START is separating the national and global interests. How can a global defence network be established that does not
expose national interests and capabilities? Russia has the capabilities and advantage in managing Russian issues, same with the US, NATO and others in
their respective territories. But what about disputed and troubled territories like Iran and others? How could their be a global interests when there
is no multinational consensus? Is humanity mature and ready enough to establish a level of mutual trust, respect and understanding or will the knifes
come out at the first sign of weakness?
If depopulation is the agenda do they have balls to say it like China or is the fundamental rights and collaboration at the core of the UN something
worth alleging to and fighting for? It is a complex situation.
