Arrow US and Russia blame each other for abandoning missile treaty

US and Russia blame each other for abandoning missile treaty
By: AP News - 8-22-19

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Russia and the United States are blaming each other for abandoning a landmark arms control agreement on missiles, with Moscow warning of a new arms race and the Trump administration demanding details of a recent mysterious explosion that killed five Russian nuclear engineers.

Russia called Thursday’s Security Council meeting following the U.S. test of a missile banned for more than 30 years by the 1987 intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Both countries withdrew from the pact Aug. 2.

Deputy Russian Ambassador Dmitry Polyansky rejected what he called American “hypocrisy,” saying the U.S. test Aug. 18 so soon after the expiration proved the U.S. had violated the treaty.

Acting U.S. Ambassador Jonathan Cohen countered that Russia’s deployment of multiple ground-launched cruise missiles that could hit critical European targets violated the treaty.


Oh how the Big Boy's like to make false statements like this. They all got what they wanted and just now are making excuses. But in reality they now have to live with their end results.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
