Trump And The INF

Far be it from me to defend US President Donald Trump over his decision to remove America from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), so i won't.
Whether it's the dead cat strategy to remove the spotlight of his woefully weak defence of the Saudi Arabians over the killing of the journalist in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey or whether he generally feels he is being constrained by the inability to create medium range missiles i don't know but it is nice to see everyone piling into him yet again.
Mikhail Gorbachev, who signed the INF treaty with then-US President Ronald Reagan, says Washington’s move to withdraw from it is 'a mistake” and 'narrow-minded', while Germany said the decision will have 'consequences' and was 'regrettable'.
Russia said it was 'a very dangerous step' which if i was of a mind to defend Donald Trump, i would point out was a bit rich considering that in 2007, Russian president Vladimir Putin declared the INF treaty no longer served Russia's interests and withdrew them from it.
Of course i am as keen as anyone to see the racist sex pest in the White House be on the end of the another global kicking for being an imbecile so boo, hiss etc etc at the third fattest American President with a penchant for porn stars and golden showers, get him out and so on.
