Russia: We Will Target U.S. Allies if Nuke Treaty Collapses

Source: The Daily Beast



Russia will target countries hosting U.S. missiles with unspecified measures if Washington goes ahead with plans to pull out of a landmark Cold War arms treaty, Russia’s General Staff Chief Valery Gerasimov said Wednesday. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has accused Russia of non-compliance with the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which bans deployment of ground-launched missiles with a range of 500 kilometers (310 miles) to 5,500 kilometers (3,400 miles). Russia denies breaching the agreement and has said it wants to hold talks with the U.S. on preserving it, but Gerasimov said, “the countries that accommodate U.S. systems of intermediate-range and short-range missiles will become the targets of Russian responsive measures” in the event the treaty collapses.

6. Nothing in the world is so bad

that Trump can’t make it worse for no reason. He’s quite remarkable, in a sickening way.

4. This sounds like what drove the old USSR to its knees in the late '80s.

Force us spend so much on the military till we're economically drained and go belly up.

5. And in so doing, Russia would reverse all its efforts to dissolve NATO.

Hard to discuss theory when an asshole has an ICBM aimed at your momma.

7. So Russia is basically saying, "we won't abide by the treaty, but if you don't abide by it

we will target you." They are already targeting you.
