US official says Russia deployed missile in treaty violation

There are 6 comments on the Fox News story from Wednesday Feb 15, titled US official says Russia deployed missile in treaty violation. In it, Fox News reports that:

Russia has deployed a cruise missile in violation of a Cold War-era arms control treaty, a Trump administration official says, 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.

Putin and his illegitimate Manchurian puppet Trump has fooled the gullible unpatriotic right into supporting the destruction of this great nation. This white house is in chaos and Trump is the carnival barker barking insanity and stupidity. Anyone who still supports Trump should be dealt with a s a treasonous traitor.

This disgusting illegitimate Manchurian puppet Trump has constantly praised Putin and denigrated America as he proudly claimed that this nation is no better than Putin’s Russia… The true enemy has infiltrated our country through Trump and the right-wing fools are complicit in this treason.

You're right about that. But, Trump always could talk the skin off a potato, especially when he was conning the Human Potato-Heads.

The Trump administration reports Russia deployed a cruise missile during Obama's last year in office, Obama kept the treaty violation secret, and you think it's Trump's fault. You have been conned, Ms. Potato-Head, and not by President Trump.

The Russians were developing it and the Obama Administration had protested to Russia. It was just deployed.

Now, if the issue is so simple as you mouthbreathers and Ill Duce Trump would have it then we'll see the US make Russia (and N. Korea) back down in double time. You know, like Ill Duce Trump made China back down on the One China Policy....

Meanwhile, the US has been building first strike capability in the form of anti ballistic missiles right on Russia's border arguably in complete violation of that Treaty. Naturally the US says it's only to stop Iranian missiles, as though that, even if were true, would render the violation moot.

Nope. The article says this:
"U.S. intelligence agencies have assessed that the missile became operational late last year, said an administration official."

The missile as deployed while Obama was in office.
If you're surprised that another one of Obama's protests were ignored by a foreign government, you're in very small company.

Trump just announced the violation that Obama kept secret during an election year.
