So... no nuclear deal with iran, no nuclear deal with Russia and no nuclear deal with N. Korea.
I am starting to worry that Trump just may be cumb enough and a big enough idiot to think a nuclear war is winnable.
Hold on here.
I also had a small spike of anxiety when I heard this, but I looked deeper into it. There are some things you should know before passing judgment.
The treaty was set to expire.
It was going to end anyway. He's not cancelling it.
Russia intends to violate the treaty.
They're building a new missile, which the treaty forbade. We asked them to stop. They said fuck you.
There was diplomacy, it didn't work.
We talked to Russia, but their minds were made up back when we had a disagreement over the anti missile defenses.
It seems like Trump's not at fault here. I hate the guy, and I hope he falls off the planet, but I'm going to hate him for good reason.
In the end it is just an excuse to spend more money on stupid nuclear weapons programmes which have been proven to contribute nothing to society other than a great deal of fear and uncertainty. They should continue to dismantle these programmes, not cancel the treaties.
