Trump is pulling out of the 1987 nuclear weapons treaty signed with Russia that banned the development of intermediate range nuclear weapons. It is being alleged that Russia has violated the treaty.
The United States announced Friday that it is pulling out of a landmark nuclear arms treaty with Russia, arguing that it should not be constrained by a deal Moscow is violating with “impunity” by deploying banned missiles. Democrats in Congress and some arms control advocates slammed the decision as opening the door to an arms race.
President Donald Trump repeated a yearslong U.S. accusation that Russia secretly developed and deployed “a prohibited missile system that poses a direct threat to our allies and troops abroad.” He said the U.S. had adhered to the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty since it was signed in 1987, but Russia had not.
“We cannot be the only country in the world unilaterally bound by this treaty, or any other,” Trump said in a written statement.
The Trump decision reflects his administration’s view that the arms treaty was an unacceptable obstacle to more forcefully confronting not only Russia but also China. China’s military has grown mightily since the treaty was signed, and the pact has prevented the U.S. from deploying weapons to counter those being developed in Beijing.
Pulling the plug on the INF pact, however, risks aggravating relations with European allies, who share the administration’s view that Russia is violating the treaty but who have not endorsed a U.S. withdrawal.
I have no idea if Russia is violating the treaty or not but pulling out of the treaty is not going to stop the Jewish media from calling Trump a secret KGB agent working for Vladimir Putin. Even if Trump ordered a nuclear strike on Moscow, they’d still claim that he’s a KGB asset of some kind. That’s how unhinged the media kikes are.
But you know what, nuclear war might actually be preferable to the existing situation. Would anybody be upset if places like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City got nuked? One could argue that these cities getting nuked would be a major improvement.
