    US: Russia violated 1987 missile treaty

    Invading neighboring countries, using treaty banned weapons. Why does that so so familiar?

    The Russians are not friends. But that is not the problem. They are trying to shape a world in which nations must compete militarily instead of helping to create an international architecture for security that will make that unnecessary. That is a problem.

    As Putin has noted, the treaty is antiquated, doesn't serve Russian interests as it may have the old Soviet Union and besides, treaties are good until one country decides they aren't and withdraws. Just ask the Whitehouse.

    I suppose that you think that US foreign policy has those aims? We're talking about having just supported the violent overthrow of an elected and legitimate Ukrainian government, to plant our man Yat's in the Ukraine. Working with and supporting terrorist groups in an attempt to overthrow president Assad, overthrowing president Saddam Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi. Your bored today, and you figured you'd thrust a stick in and stir, or you're just suggesting that the US seeks to achieve an "international architecture for security" just for ****s and giggles. Ok, it worked.

    I know that you don't think so, but you will find that there is a higher probability than you think, if you read up on it. There was a rather lengthy discussion in the better foreign policy journals and the r2p thing introduced by the UN in 2005 was a direct result of US urging to initiate the necessary steps.

    True. But does that contradict what I said?

    No it was me agreeing with you in a way that also allowed me to get rid of all the rage inside me from losing some games.
