The grubby duplicity of the Trump administration regarding its obligations on nuclear-arms control is a lamentable demonstration of American disgrace.
The cheap stunt with China’s flags and distortion of the bilateral talks in Vienna with Russia does not inspire confidence in U.S. intentions.
Early in his term, President Trump asked why the US can’t use its nuclear weapons. If Washington successfully torpedoes START II and re-starts testing, he may get to do exactly that.
Washington is pursuing an ulterior agenda and exploiting nuclear fears for its own selfish geopolitical gain regarding China.
