"The Russian American Nuclear Security Advisory Council was created in 1997 as an independent organization consisting of Russian and American experts with the purpose of developing new U.S.-Russian cooperative nuclear security initiatives and ensuring that existing programs become deeply rooted and are implemented expeditiously." 

     Does this remind you of the US-USSR Education Exchange Agreement signed by President Reagan and Gorbachev? See Bush, Gorbachev, Shultz and Soviet Education

Did you know? "The Russians are building tremendous new nuclear/biological and chemical weapons systems--all with the assistance of US technology transfers. They are deploying on average, 3 new Topol-M 6th generation ballistic missiles per month. We built our last MX over 10 years ago, and are disarming unilaterally. Further, the Russian are building huge underground nuclear bunkers and weapons production facilities in the Ural Mountains, clearly intended to function during a nuclear war. The US intelligence community (under both Republican and Democratic administrations) knows this and are actively covering for the Russians, so the American people won’t become alarmed.
      "Both Republican and Democratic administrations have been supplying the
Chinese with high technology weapons systems for years, knowing that they, in turn, are supplying other enemies (Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea) as well. ...President Clinton directed our military to absorb a nuclear first strike rather than “launch on warning” (our only true deterrent to a first strike)...." (Joel Skousen¹s World Affairs Brief, 10-6-01) See Bush, Gorbachev, Shultz and Soviet Education

History of the National Security Council: "Two years after the birth of the United Nations with its Security Council, 'The National Security Act of July 26, 1947, created the National Security Council... to coordinate foreign policy and defense policy.... The Clinton administration... expanded [the NSC membership] to include the Secretary of the Treasury, the U.S. Representative to the United Nations, the newly-created Assistant to the President for Economic Policy.... the President's Chief of Staff, and the President's National Security Adviser.'

CFR: U.S.-China Relations: "After thirty-five years of 'engagement,' the United States and China have a relationship that was truly unimaginable two generations ago. At the same time, there are some Americans who believe that China’s strategic interests are incompatible with those of the United States.... The Council on Foreign Relations established an Independent Task Force to take stock of the changes under way in China today and to evaluate what these changes mean for China and for the U.S.-China relationship. Based on its careful assessment of the developments in the country and China’s likely future trajectory, the Task Force recommends that the United States pursue a strategy focused on the integration of China into the global community."
