On a quick search...(and I did not say NATO was happy, just they understood)
"It is now up to Russia to preserve the INF Treaty," wrote NATO foreign ministers in a joint statement." - Not the US...RUSSIA
European leaders have sought to preserve the arms control framework, even as NATO foreign ministers declared Tuesday that they believed Russia was in violation.
“I regret that we now most likely will see the end of the INF Treaty,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who has spoken of how the Cold War arms buildup shaped his views of security as he grew up in Norway. “We really felt that the world was moving forward when the Soviet Union and the United States in 1987 agreed.”
....they blame Russia rightfully so for breaking the treaty and the fact that it wont last now
By the way...
“Merkel had a very good meeting with Trump and managed to convince the president to give more time before a pull out,” said one European diplomat who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss diplomatic conversations."
So its not like he wasn't asked to delay a little and ignore it. He seems to be working with NATO its just Russia isn't complying.
The problem I see from the left is using all these soundbites that in the end mean diddly squat (sure the right do it too...but we are talking left here...feel free to bring the rights up in another post if you like)
Harping on "he is the great deal maker"...so what? maybe he is and it just wont work here
The left has to make up their damn mind...Is Trump a stooge of Putin or not? Is eh the Manchurian candidate or not? Is he too soft on Russia or not? Is Russia an enemy or not? Stop the flip flopping on this please. If Trump places sanctions on Russia directly or indirectly he gets called terrible...if he does something that might benefit Russia hes called terrible...it does not go both ways.
NATO has outright said they know Russia broke the treaty and have ZERO plans to abide by it ever. I don't know about you...but I don't want another Chamberlain like response....but if you noticed...Merkel asked for a little more time...Trump agreed. But there has to be a limit.
