Putin: failure to ratify START would be 'dumb'

• AP

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is warning that his country will find it necessary to build up its nuclear forces, if the United State's doesn't ratify a new arms reduction treaty.

The treaty, called New START, was worked out this year amid praise that it marked a newly cooperative spirit between Washington and Moscow. However, many Republicans in the U.S. Senate are expressing reluctance to ratify it.

 If the objective is to initiate WWIII, then failure to ratify is not dumb, it's smart.
