Subj: Trump pulls out of missle treaty with Russia

This was always going to be hard to reach an agreement with but in many ways this is troubling. The "master negotiator" fails to negotiate again. This gives Russia permission to develop harder to detect weapons that could hit places in Europe.

Along with the constant attacks on NATO (and apparent threats to pull out and the desire to do so) this is further evidence of Trump pulling the US out of the world stage as a leader.

The spin is that this gives the US permission to make similar weapons. But given that Russia has wanted this outcome for quite a while, this is pretty much just caving and giving Russia what they want.
