Since Greenland is a poor location, the US could simply bribe the entire populace with $10,000 each for a total sum of $500,000,000, which in terms of Washington’s budget is peanuts. Hearts and minds have to be won but often they can just be bought.
Russia and China are right to condemn the testing this week of an INF-busting new missile by the US. Washington is brazenly jeopardizing global security under the usual cynical guise of “defense”.
Washington’s withdrawal from the INF Treaty is just the latest move against Russia that will serve to intensify an arms race on the European continent that is already underway. It may also force Russia to take things to the next level.
One day after the Trump Administration announced it was getting out of the Reagan-era INF treaty, the new Pentagon chief said US would be sending missiles once banned by that treaty to Asia. Targeting China. Will an Asian arms race be stabilizing or destabilizing?
