US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the Trump administration is pulling the plug on the decades-old Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia, claiming that Moscow “shamelessly” violated the 1987 agreement that restricts missiles with a range between 500 to 5,500 kilometers. Russia says the US invented that fiction so it could have an excuse to clear the way to develop new missiles. -GEG

RT says that the US has tomahawks that are violating the terms as well.. possibly when Poland was admitted to NATO..?. and why was every American official ABSENT FROM THE UNVEILING OF THE RUSSIAN MISSILE.. They were invited… very poor showing after making big claims about that missile….. I could see the need to dump the treaty to drag in all the other countries now in the nuke&missile club, but it sure would be better PR to deal with the opponent’s moves and respond to the counter charges…. Pompeio sure looks phony because of his mishandling IMO.. ttyl
