US expected to announce withdrawal from nuclear arms treaty

The US government is expected to announce Friday its withdrawal from a nuclear arms treaty. The withdrawal, expected for months, would follow years of unresolved dispute over Russia’s compliance with the pact, known as the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces. Technically, a withdrawal would take effect six months, leaving a possible window for saving the treaty.

If anyone thinks Russia is honest and has been in compliance, I have a bridge for sale. We should not be in deals where the US is held accountable for everything and the other country gets a finger wag.

Two dangerous countries racking up the cold war sentiment and develop nuclear weapons once more. It looks like that anyway. So tell me: why we even bother with Iran? Shouldn't we put sanctions on Russia and the US?

Most Americans are not aware but their corporate controlled govt is pulling out of ALL forms of human responsibility and protection. Such as the Nuclear treaty, the Human Rights council, among others. Most Americans have no glue their govt is publicly separating itself from global institutions that are meant to "help" and/or "protect" People and humans rights. It's very scarry when the most powerful nation is being steered by the sinister billionaire class and the world does NOTHING? Where is the United Nations on this? Americans better wake up before the entire world teams up to stop our rogue govt.
