The Pentagon decided to expand the air defense system due to "violations" of the INF Treaty by the Russian Federation

In connection with the “breaches” of the Moscow INF Treaty, Washington is developing measures that include “changing and expanding the air defense system,” reports RIA News Post Assistant Deputy Head of the Pentagon Brian McKeon.


The Pentagon decided to expand the air defense system due to "violations" of the INF Treaty by the Russian Federation


“In connection with Russia's violations of the INF Treaty and, in general, aggressive behavior, we are developing and implementing a strategy in response to Russian military actions, which includes changing and expanding the air defense system to counter Russia's offensive capabilities”,
stated McKeon.

Washington periodically accuses Moscow of violating the RSDM treaty. In turn, Russia declares the groundlessness of criticism and makes its claims to the Americans about the execution of the document.

    The Pentagon always has a reason, but earlier there was "Iranian nuclear threat, and now" Russian threat ".

      Even if something was wrong with us, let them be grateful for the occasion, they would still have made us disgusting.

        The Pentagon always has an excuse, before it was the "Iranian threat", and now the "Russian threat".

        And there is the threat of diarrhea from fright

          Again, the Pentagon, as they say, transfers its guilt from a SICK head to a HEALTHYwhile denying, in essence, that the United States constantly - in violation of the US verbal agreements with Gorbachev, and then with Yeltsin - not to push NATO to the borders of Russia, not only promote its military bases and NATO bases, but also accept the former Soviet republics to NATO, but they are also creating a missile defense system directly aimed at Russia.

            Direct confirmation by the Pentagon of the one against whom the missile defense is directed!

        These "partners" at any time may have another test tube with white powder, which they will call any Moscow plague and call on the whole world to condemn, surround, bomb, etc.
        Therefore, we must do what we think is necessary, but within the framework of reasonable and sufficient defense. Although with such "partners" defense can never be enough.

        It seems that by the totality of their gestures, they are not just crap, they are preparing a great war. Fearing the Russian air forces that have so successfully proven themselves in Syria, logically strengthen air defense.

        Y-yes. Didn't we even move at all !? Whatever we do to defend the country, any step we take in international politics (and domestic politics too) causes fear and fear among the US authorities and their allies. Don't we move at all? How to live with such suspicious "partners" on the same planet? It is necessary to be calmer somehow, gentlemen "Washington hawks", more humane or something. And it’s not far from sin!

        Even if we have something wrong ...

        Is it our medium and short range missiles that threaten US territory? No. These are their S and M D missiles stationed in Europe, which threaten us. It is time for us to strengthen the national anti-aircraft defense systems.
        They are drawn to our borders and yell that Russian missiles have become dangerous for you, so bring them overseas and you will be safe from Russian INF. yes

      In connection with violations by Russia of the INF Treaty and, in general, aggressive behavior!
      So RIAC or "aggressive behavior" (political independence)?
      They ate in the ass, between the two chairs it will fail too much.
      Inspired by the creation of the "Fitness" special forces!

    Yeah ... We brought our borders closer to NATO.
    In general, let them bay. Russia does not have goals such as attacking and capturing one or all of the immediately-limiting quasi-states, such as the Baltic states, or Poland.
    All these statements are made only to escalate hysteria and fear among the inhabitants of Western countries.
    As for our medium and short-range missiles, one thing can be said: - "Do the states and the West comply with at least one agreement, even signed and ratified" ???
    Enough in your foreign and defense policy to be unilaterally decent. Everything must be done so that the country is reliably protected and the West does not even think about an attack on Russia!
    And the western air defense (ABM) system against our newest weapons is as "effective" as a club against a machine gun ...

    Russia must withdraw from this Gorbachev treaty.
    Around us, a bunch of countries possessing INF, we are alone unarmed!

    By the way, interestingly, America is in a better position. Unlike us, at short range they do not have a critical nuclear subscriber. And we have Europe at hand and Pakistan, India, China with the DPRK.
    Although delivery vehicles do not tackle this imbalance, we still have less time to think about than they do.

      Let Perimeter think if something happens ... We need to officially announce that the decision on a retaliatory strike, and on the massive use of SVN too, is taken by our computer! So scare him and then show him if you survive!

    It's time to organize another discharge of the "Status-6" type
    Well, for example, they sent a nuclear submarine to the shores of America with 200 nuclear "balls" on constant watch.
    Or they launched into the space the Fronton-9 super-laser with the 6-and nuclear-pumped barrel laser system.

    Well, if we already allegedly violated, then it is already possible to create ground-based ballistic missiles with a range of 1000 to 5000 kilometers and install medium-range cruise ships on land launchers.

    The insolence of the United States has no limit. The United States withdrew from the ABM Treaty unilaterally and itself violated the INF Treaty by deploying dual-use launchers in the EU, from which it is possible to launch Tomahawk missiles, including those with a nuclear warhead.
