"Russia appears to be moving ahead with a program to produce a ground-launched cruise missile...." The US administration is protesting that such a missile would violate "a landmark arms control agreement."
That accord signed by Reagan and Gorbachev is the 1987 Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Agreement that bars the introduction of new intermediate range (300-3,400 miles) Nuclear-Capable missiles most likely to be deployed and USED in Europe.
The US itself plans to build and deploy a Long Range Stand Off (LRSO) Nuclear-Tipped Cruise Missile. It can be launched more than 3,000 miles from its target!
There is NO WAY for the "other side" to determine if the missile is carrying a Nuclear warhead or not.
In a recent post here, we noted that Candidate Clinton has expressed doubts on deployment of this dangerously destabilizing new weapon.
Sen. Feinstein (D-California) has authored an "open letter" in opposition to this example of planned escalation of Nuclear Weaponry. (Escalation euphemistically called "modernization" by its proponents.)
Also, this month Mr. Putin suspended Russia's cooperation in disposing of his nation's plutonium stocks - the core of almost all Nuclear Warheads.
COLD WAR LIKE MADNESS CONTINUES. We need to STOP IT NOW!
MILLENIALS it will be your world... OR NO WORLD.
Nor can the rest of us remain passive in the face of this imminent Ultimate Threat to our children and grandchildren. CLICK here.
