It’s hard to keep up.
WASHINGTON — Russia has secretly deployed a new cruise missile despite complaints from American officials that it violates a landmark arms control treaty that helped seal the end of the Cold War, administration officials say.
The move presents a major challenge for President Trump, who has vowed to improve relations with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and to pursue future arms accords.
This move by Putin tells me… 1) Putin has Trump in his pocket and knows he’ll get away with this, or 2) Putin has no fear of Trump and knows he’ll get away with this.
I’m so old that I remember when people told me that the world didn’t respect Obama. Here we have a major power flaunting a treaty with America because they have no worry that the current president will lift a finger.
Interesting, and yet another one where inaction will be met with alarm followed by contempt. I fully expect Trump will be called out as a liar many times in coming days as the corporate media tries to remember it’s job, I also feel we’re at a rapidly arriving tipping point with Trump, Putin and Russia. Expecting the usual barrage of lies in coming days from all the usual suspects, but this is a bridge too far and a mountain of denial far too high to explain away.
Trump can (will?) claim that he negotiated the cruise missile deal and in exchange he got _______ from Putin.
A) a pat in the head
B) a border fence
C) his old Apprentice job back
D) (don’t worry about it, but it is great, believe me).
E) more bankruptcy forgiveness
F) asylum for Flynn
G) Lillies to carry Ivanka Trump Fashions.
After all the mischief we’ve done in the Ukraine, why would Putin do this ?
