‘Russia is Public Enemy No. 1’ – Mitt Romney

US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has branded Russia as America’s
number one geopolitical enemy. He slammed President Obama’s comments to
Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev over flexibility concerning US
missile defense as alarming and worrying.
"This is without question our number one geopolitical foe; they
fight for every cause for the world's worst actors. The idea that he has
more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed," he saidThe
presidential hopeful cited this case, along with the new START treaty
and the decision to reduce missile defense sites in Poland and Alaska,
as “unfortunate developments.”
While saying that the greatest current threat to the world is a “nuclear Iran,” he lambasted Russia for consistently “standing up for the world’s worst actors,” referencing the Russian veto of the Security Council resolutions on Syria.

“The
idea that our president is planning to do something with them [Russia]
that he’s not willing to tell the American people is something I find
very alarming,” Romney stressed.
Romney appeared on CNN
to comment on President Obama’s off-the-record moment with Medvedev
during the international nuclear summit in South Korea. Obama was caught
on camera saying that he would have more “flexibility” on thorny issues such as missile defense following the November elections.Medvedev said he would pass the message on to President elect Vladimir Putin.


Obama
addressed the wave of republican criticism following his statements on
Monday, saying that he had no secret agenda with Russia and he was not
trying “to hide the ball.”Washington released a
statement in an effort to underplay Obama’s words. The Whitehouse said
the fact that both countries were going through elections this year
meant a “breakthrough” in negotiations on the matter was not going to happen.The
US president then echoed this statement to the press during a break in
the summit in Seoul on Tuesday, describing the current political climate
as “not conducive” to these kinds of negotiations.The
planned US missile defense shield for Europe has been a major stumbling
block for Russian-NATO relations. The US maintain that the shield will
only be used for targets outside of Europe, while Russia says there is
no guarantee the facility could not be turned against them.
Following
his meeting with his US counterpart, President Medvedev described the
last three years of US-Russian relations as the most productive ever.http://rt.com/news/romney-russia-enemy-obama-532/

  • Ok, he said we are geopolitical enemy no 1 of USA. Thats true. We dont need to suck American dick to keep rolling, so they hate us. But to say we are public enemy no 1 is a little exaggeration. We dont causing any problem worldwide, "evil empire" is pure myth to scare stupid electorate.

    At least this man is talks what he thinks. This is respected here.

      It's quite debatable who's missile technology is better, as Russian engines (e.g. RD-170 and NK-33 series) are selling in America like hot-cakes.

      Russia isn't asking for missile technology or secrets, it's asking for written proof, and a binding document, that the ABM system being built in Europe is NOT AIMED AT RUSSIA. Period. That's all they're asking. The Americans claim it's only against Iran and North Korea, but they are not willing to confirm that with any binding docume More..

  • Another hapless warmonger. To suggest that avoiding overt threats towards Russia is not conducive to American interests is true, if American interests are based in the resource-rich regions of the World - which they are. Yay imperialism.

      He means exactly what all the GOP candidates are doing, too.

      Because the majority of American voters are a tiny bit factually challenged, ALL the candidates must talk tough about America`s enemies, tell everybody how religious they are, how they value the Founding Fathers and the Constitution, how owning a gun is a basic human right(lol), courts must give tougher sentences, climate change is a lie, evolution is a myth, USA is Number One in any category (kind of chuck Norris of coun More..

  • No, he is right. We need to 'Buy' back our loans from China. We need to 'Buy back America'.

    'Take back America' is jut a Tag line and is not specific enough.

      So Mitt wants to get China (Russia's strongest ally) to fund a missile shield in Alaska so you can buy back your debt from China?

      I have read your statement three times and fact that you have lots of thumb+'s tells me I am missing something.

      I don't get how funding our missile shield buys back our debt from China.

      I just don't understand those words in that order.

      That's exactly it, it doesn't make sense. Mitt's two stances are contradictory.

      Mitt is concerned that the Alaskan missile shield might be off the table.

      Mitt wants to buy back your debt from the Chinese.

      Building the missile shield would require more lending from the Chinese.

      Please provide poof that they ARE behind proxy wars (which ones by the way?). These wars America is in today, were arguably started by America (with Iraq being started under false pretenses, no less). Iran, has had a massive growth in regional power, arguably due to your actions, because you took out Iraq - it's main regional rival. Now let's look back into history of how they became Islamo-fascists. Remember Operation Ajax? Remember the Shah? Remember the blowback from that, i More..
