The GOP's lame duck Hardball

The GOP is mindlessly opposing the START Treaty (The GOP's lame duck Hardball, Washington Post, November 21, 2010)

The GOP has struck a blow in the war on terror; on the side of the terrorists.

A side benefit of the inspection regime of the Russian nuclear sites is the pressure on the Russians to keep these sites secure. Continued absence of American inspectors will result in a slackening of security and a greater ability for unscrupulous criminals to steal nuclear material from the sites and sell them to well funded terrorist groups.

What is it about nuclear security that the GOP leaders, with the honorable exception of Senator Lugar, do not understand?
