Trump Blasts Russia for Nuke Reneging, Rips Up Treaty

Obama had a chance to do the same, but was pressured by Germany to ignore the infraction.

While Robert Mueller continues to toil away at his investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, the President is busy laying down the law on Moscow.

For years, it has been fairly obvious that Vladimir Putin hasn’t been interested in playing by the rules of the global community.  For the most part, the world abides by this, allowing Putin’s leash to remain fairly slack until something like Crimea occurs, and then a quick yank tends to set him straight again.

But some instances of treachery and deceit are more worrisome than others…especially when they involve something as dangerous and unstable as nuclear weapons.

For instance, there is evidence that Russia has been working on weapons that go above and beyond the limits of a 1987 treaty between the US and Russia.  This has caused President Trump to figurative tear apart the treaty, having declared it void just hours ago.

President Trump said the U.S. will withdraw from a decades-old treaty with Russia that eliminated a class of nuclear weapons after he accused Russia of violating the treaty.

“We’re the ones that have stayed in the agreement and we’ve honored the agreement, but Russia has not unfortunately honored the agreement,” Trump told reporters in Nevada, “so we’re going to terminate the agreement, we’re going to pull out.”

Signed by President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty banned the U.S. and Soviet Union from having “ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges of between 500 and 5,500 kilometers,” and required the destruction of the missiles, launchers and “associated support structures and support equipment,” according to the State Department.

The two countries eliminated 2,692 missiles after the treaty’s “entry-into-force” in 1988, the agency says.

General Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, told Congress in March 2017 that military officials “believe that the Russians have deployed a land-based cruise missile that violates the spirit and intent” of the treaty.

Former President Barack Obama remained in the treaty even after an incident in 2014 in which Russia was believed to have tested a weapon that was far beyond the limits of the agreement.  This move was made at the behest of Germany, whose leadership was concern over the possibility of a new arms race in their backyard.

National Dissatisfaction Grows, With Stunning New Poll Numbers

This is looking downright abysmal.

Published

The tone being set by the White House right now is simply unforgivable for many Americans.  They see a lackadaisical and reluctant President who has a hard time looking interested in the job until they put him behind the wheel of some new vehicle in some new factory in some midwestern city.

Perks of the job, I suppose.

But outside some of those events, which feel a little like a monarch visiting his more industrious peasants, Joe Biden has been pretty much unwilling to take serious, meaningful action on some of the issues that face our nation, desperately, as a whole.

The polls are being to show it, as well, pushing the White House into a two-pronged fight; against the mood of the nation, and against the media that’s feeding it.

Seventy-two percent of Americans say the nation is headed in the wrong direction, a Sunday NBC News poll revealed.

As rising inflation, coronavirus chaos, supply chain woes, and foreign policy blunders have impacted Americans throughout 2021 and into 2022, 72 percent of respondents believe the country is on the wrong track, up one point from October’s NBC News poll.

Only six times have 70 percent or more of Americans believed the nation is headed in the wrong direction in consecutive surveys.

And that wasn’t all.  Oh, no.

The polling also revealed both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s approval ratings remain in the 30s. Biden: 39-48 percent. Harris: 32-49 percent.

According to the poll, the economy and jobs are the most important crisis facing the country (42 percent), with coronavirus (29 percent), election integrity (25 percent), and border security (22 percent) subsequently ranked.

Biden has had a year to overcome whatever messes that he may think Donald Trump left him, and it appears as though that’s about as much time as America was willing to give him to fix them.
