Clinton Pushing START

Clinton081210.jpgHillary Clinton is urging the Senate to quickly pass the New START treaty, arguing that it will make relations with Russia more stable and predictable. The CNN reports:

There is nothing in the measure that will prevent the United States from modernizing its arsenal and maintaining a “safe, secure and effective” deterrent, she said…

…”Opposing ratification means opposing the inspections [that] provide us a vital window” into Russia’s nuclear arsenal, Clinton warned. “As time passes, uncertainty will increase,” leading to greater unpredictability.
