Wikileaks: US agrees to tell Russia Britain's nuclear secrets

According to the UK "Telegraph" and their apparent informant Wikileaks, "the US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website".

IMO: Seems that without adequate air defences and with the US telling potential enemies the UK nuclear secrets, Cameron must do something positive for the so-called "special relationship". Surely decent politicians can provide enough 'hot air' to fix this matter - and also to repair treaty arrangements ruined by Bliar.

Experts apparently say: "The British make their own warheads for them - "Chevaline" is the designation, I believe - and they are of course free to keep details of these to themselves - like warhead yield, numbers of MIRV reentry vehicles and penetration aids, etc. The only useful things the US could tell the Russians about these missiles would be things like range, throw-weight and CEP (circular error probable)".
