“US is on the path toward withdrawal from the INF”
U.S. is withdrawing from a nuclear weapons treaty dating back to 1987 and abandoning our European allies who would be the countries targeted by these weapons.
Putin said earlier this month he would “retaliate” for withdrawal.
So… I guess we’ll develop our own intermediate-range nuclear-capable missiles, maybe with Europe, and deploy them? Because… don’t mess with Russia?
