ABM Treaty Talking Points-- As the states parties to the NPT debate whether the United States and Russia are fulfilling their obligations to eliminate their nuclear arsenals, the US is pushing ahead on several fronts to deploy a National Missile Defense (NMD) - nonexistent technology that would violate the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. In an attempt to convince Russia that the system would not be designed to protect the US from an overwhelming Russian nuclear attack, the US has presented to Moscow a "talking point" document including a proposed protocol to the ABM Treaty that would permit deployment of a NMD. Among other points Washington is making is that Russia could overpower the US even after START II and III cuts are in place "over the next decade and thereafter." The US is also apparent at ease with the fact that "Russia now keeps its strategic arsenal on constant alert and apparently will do so even at START III levels." This document was leaked to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in Chicago, which place the entire talking points, proposed protocol and annex on its website.
