US official: Russia deployed missile in violation of treaty

There are 12 comments on the WATE-TV Knoxville story from Tuesday Feb 14, titled US official: Russia deployed missile in violation of treaty. In it, WATE-TV Knoxville reports that:

Russia has deployed a cruise missile in violation of a Cold War-era arms control treaty, a Trump administration official said Tuesday, a development that complicates the outlook for U.S.-Russia relations amid turmoil on the White House national security team. The Obama administration three years ago accused the Russians of violating the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by developing and testing the prohibited cruise missile, and officials had anticipated that Moscow eventually would deploy it.

Well, we're not going to war over an arms treaty violation. But we do have to decide who is going to be an ally, Russia or Iran? And I think Russia would be the best bet for an ally, as we have a hell of a lot more in common with Russia than we do with Iran. We even go into outer space with Russians. And we've got be sensible and stop crying "The Russians. The Russians," every time it's politically expedient.

Russian companies are about to build a power plant and enhance generation at another in Iran in a contract worth several billion dollars, an Iranian deputy energy minister says.

Under an agreement signed between the two sides, the Russians will improve efficiency at the Ramin power plant in Khuzestan province to 50-55% from 36% now, Alireza Daemi told the Mehr news agency on Wednesday.

Another Russian company will build a 1,400-megawatt power plant in the Iranian city of Bandar Abbas in Hormuzgan province, he added.

Funny, I don't remember this critical a reaction (from lefties) when Iran violated treaties on numerous occasions during the last regime.

What am I outraged about?
I'm just pointing out that it's beyond laughable to claim that Putin, who's quoted as saying that the ONLY reason the US had any interest in relations with Moscow was that Russia was the only country that could "destroy America in half an hour or less" is a hardly potential ally.

The fact that American "conservatives" insist that Iran is the worlds leading manufacturer of terrorists, while Russia regards them as a critical ally and business partner, should make that painfully clear.

That's fine. I find it equally laughable that the same people who were ready to polish Obama's knob over the "Russian Reset" and his willingness to have better relations with Putin are now aghast over Trump.

Personally, I don't trust them but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try and have a decent relationship with them. It wouldn't be the first time we held our nose dealing with a world leader, and it won't be the last. And if Trump happens to create a atmosphere where things aren't as tense, that's could be a good thing.

tRumps ego compounds his naïveté.
He’s vulnerable to flattery; his confidence in himself exceeds his intellectual capacities.
All of this makes him particularly susceptible to exploitation, an easy mark.

For this reason, dubious figures have always gravitated to him.(Please read David Cay Johnston’s persuasive account of Trump’s long ties to organized crime.)
It seems the Russian president has noticed this, too.

To quote Trump on Putin,“A guy calls me a genius and they want me to renounce him? I’m not going to renounce him.”

“Yeah, but...”

Russia deployed the cruise missile while Obama was in office.
Obama kept the treaty violation secret during an election year.
Trump tells you about the treaty violation and you think that this is an indication of Putin playing Trump's naïve
You display a special kind of ignorance, boy.

With any continuation of Obama policies using NATO and U.S. warships to increasingly harass Russia's borders closer and closer, we can expect a nation like that to increasingly show the U.S. it won't stand for constant violations of its peaceful coexistence and border security. Russians have an almost genetic will to resist oppression and invasions from foreigners. More than any other people on Earth, Russians have suffered loss to incredible degree from foreign violations. They take harassing ships, flights, artillery and troop movements on their borders and in their inland waters very seriously. The recent, totally obnoxious and threatening invasions of Russian border areas and the Obama U.S. funded illegal coup takeover government in Ukraine, including the ridiculous attempt of NATO to steal a major Russian Naval Base in Crimea, have made Russia flex its military muscles more than once. Continued jingoistic nonsense from Democrats and RINOs in America will only make the situation worse. Russia is not a paper tiger.
