Why not? If we expect other countries to openly display their arsenals to us then why shouldn't we reciprocate those actions to them?

As is common with most US media reports, the article is very short on specifics. It is almost mentioned just in passing. I think they wrote more about Hillary's broken elbow. I would have to reserve final judgment until I knew exactly what those inspections entailed.

However I think this "could" be a good thing if the inspections are done on both sides. For instance, we could potentially see the readiness of the Russian arsenal as well gather more information about the security of those nukes. I think most of us are more worried about Russian nuclear security than we are of an actual attack.

On the flip side, don't you think it might be a good idea to let the Russians know that our Nuclear capability is VERY ready to strike at a moments notice? Just the thing to remind them that WE can wipe them out at anytime.

This isn't anything new. They have inspected them for a long time as I understand it. There is an old crusty guy here at my base that was a nuke guy and said when the Russian inspectors would come around when he was a low guy on the totem pole he was told to stand there silently with sledge hammer.

This has been ongoing for years... it's part of the SALT I and SALT II treaties signed long before Obama was even claiming to be a US citizen.....

The press is always lying to you.... believe what you see not what you hear on the news.

Yeah, I'd show those puppies off. And be like, you grab the tail, you get the horns. Course, we can avoid all that...

A different attitude might be like the other member said. Fair is fair, we took a look at yours, now go ahead and take a look at these, if you want to. Although, I don't even know why they would bother, these days. Maybe to try and keep up some kind of easily seen through appearance?

But as for the whole sledgehammer thing... I have to ask. What's he going to do? Reach over there and set it off? Yeah right.
