Pompeo: US will create missiles to counter "Russian aggression"

The United States intends to create intermediate and shorter-range missiles to counter "Russian aggression." This was stated by the head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo.


Speaking via video link from Jerusalem to participants in the Republican Party's national election congress, Pompeo said that the US withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) has made it possible to build intermediate and shorter-range missiles needed to contain "Russian aggression."

America abandoned a harmful treaty so that our country could build missiles to deter Russian aggression

- he stressed.

Talking about the successes of the current US President Donald Trump, the Secretary of State said that he (Trump - approx.) Achieved the strengthening of NATO, armed Ukraine, dissuaded North Korea from nuclear tests and did many other good things for the United States.

Today, thanks to President Trump, NATO has become stronger, Ukraine has defensive weapons system, resists the aggression of Iran in the region (...) he defeated the terrorist group ISIS (banned in Russia - approx.), defends America from the predatory strategy of the Chinese Communist Party

- said Pompeo.

Recall that the United States withdrew from the INF Treaty on August 2, 2019, accusing Russia of this. Despite all the statements that the United States is not developing missiles prohibited by the treaty, on August 21, 2019, a Tomahawk rocket was tested from a ground installation. In response to the US withdrawal from the treaty, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the development of an appropriate response.

        As much as the Amers regretted about it .. It was not a bad contract all the same .. Russia will always find an inexpensive and effective answer, as has happened more than once in our history.

          Here you should rather think about where they will place these missiles ?! They have already withdrawn from the agreement, and even earlier they had put financing into the budget.
          I think they can do it in Afghanistan. In the west, Iran (SD missiles hit much farther), in the east of the PRC (Beijing will reach even the coast of TO), in the north of Central Asia and the Russian Federation (a range of 5 thousand km - they reach the northern Urals), in the south India and Pakistan. A "trump" place is obtained - all nuclear countries in Asia are targeted. hi

            Well, we also wonder where they have close by .. Can you imagine what kind of panic will start? Why is the United States possible, but Russia is not .. I'm sure the Amers themselves will ask for negotiations on these missiles .. There is a risk of a big war, of course, but what remains for us?

    How did this political clownery get it? am But at least he admitted that they left the INF Treaty not because of Russia's violations of the treaty, but because of their own wishes, or had already forgotten about what tales they told the world when they left the treaty what , already progress laughing , although what am I talking about? and yes, these storytellers get all the information from the media, and they can start a war if some rag writes about Russian aggression negative

      Well, they also justified the Chinese, they say, the PRC has these RIACs like dirt, and we here with the Russians are self-limiting, and soon we will completely disappear from the Chinese threat.
      The CIA spy - China is here as an excuse, they will be deployed in Europe against the Russian Federation.

          In Japan, at least somehow it can be attributed to the Chinese, but from Europe to threaten China with the INF is somehow strange.

    The difference is that they can drag these missiles to our border, but we cannot.
    Placed in Chukotka, so only in Alaska (and what the hell?) And Canada will get it.

    How easy it has become to cut the budget striped: he threw a cry about the aggression of Russia, once and allocated a dozen dollars to arms corporations, soon, when mentioning the invasion of the Atlanteans and talking about illegal stellar aggressors, Congress will easily transfer hundreds or two billions of greenery to the development companies. So it's not a pity - a lot of paper, they will print as many bucks as they need ...

    The trouble is that the INF is purely offensive weapons and cannot deter aggression in any way, if missile defense and air defense, to a greater extent, can be attributed to defense, then it does not roll.
    So who is the aggressor? Who interfered with the INF Treaty?

    From Posner to the most recent pro-Western political scientist, everyone is trying to convince us that American citizens do not give a damn about foreign policy, they are only interested in what is happening in their country, but for some reason it is precisely the success in foreign policy that is decisive during the elections ...

    Well, and then for several years they talked that Russia is violating, Russia is violating ... The same happened with the missile defense system in Europe - "against Iran," but not against Russia. And the expulsion of diplomats, and the appropriation of Russian property, and spy scandals, and hackers, etc. - all from one opera. With missiles it is clear, but when to expect sanctions on "Navalny's list"?

    Exactly two weeks after leaving the INF Treaty, the United States tested a supposedly just designed and built (in two weeks !!!) land-based cruise missile with a range of 621 miles. Any questions about who violated the INF Treaty? No questions :-)

    Everything American for the sake of peace on earth. Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan were bombed for the sake of democracy and the prosperity of their peoples. Are these missiles likely to be especially peaceful?
