Putin signs bill suspending participation in nuclear treaty

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed legislation Wednesday suspending a 1987 nuclear missile treaty. Putin’s decree formalizes Russia’s departure from the treaty with the US following Washington’s withdrawal from the pact. The United States is set to pull out of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) on Aug. 2 citing Russia’s development of a missile that breaks the accord.

I heard an urban legend that one of the men on the Manhattan Project said, "now we're all sons of bitches" after the Trinity shot.

'Putin has vowed that Russia will not be the first to deploy new intermediate-range missiles and warned the U.S. against deploying new missiles in Europe, saying that Russia will retaliate by fielding new fast weapons that will take just as little time to reach their targets.' I really wonder who will blink first.

It's Trump's "new" path to winning the Nobel peace prize. It drives him crazy that Obama got one. It's something he can't remove by executive order or have one of his toadies rescind.

You can’t created a treaty to punish something retroactively ...that’s retarded. Also, if they don’t sign up to it they aren’t in breach of it?
