My question is who did we sign the ABM treaty with? Russia or the USSR? If Russia who and where was Russian from 1919 to 1991? And if it's USSR where is it today?

One of these parties no longer existed and the other was not a signatory to the treaty. So who are we promising to not make ABM's with? I would sayI am confused but I am not.

If you voted for Obama then all the mistakes he makes are your fault and I will point this out to you every time he does mess up.

When the fall is all that remains. It matters a great deal.

These mini-nukes have only minimal deterrent value and are clearly offensive weapons.

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, a lot of the Hawks were trying to get JFK to invade. He refused, having already learned the hard way that things like this can go very wrong. What the Hawks didn't know, was that along with the bigger nukes on the island, the Cubans also had a bunch of minis. If we had invaded, they had permission from Moskow to use the minis. They could have wiped out anything we sent againt them. I think they are in the Big deterent category.

QF: The UN nuclear weapons inspectors praised the cooperation of Saddam's regime and said they had found no evidence of an active nuclear program.

They also elected Libya to chair the Human Rights Committee.  So the UN must be a brilliant judge of the world…

Setting aside the fact that JFK was a fool for taking us so close to the brink when he didn’t have to and had a position of strength.  You are right low yield nuclear warheads have the advantage of being more flexible in the range of situations where they can be used.

No, the nuclear weapons inspectors did not elect Cuba to chair the Human Rights Committee.
