Get ready for ludicrous amounts spend on weapons, warfare and nuclear R&D which will produce more than enough bombs and missiles put in active service that could destroy the earth 10 times over.
Putin announces suspension of New Start Treaty citing "The West seeks to inflict a strategic defeat on us and to creep onto our nuclear sites. In connection with this, I am forced to announce today that Russia is suspending its participation in the New START Treaty. I repeat - not exiting from the treaty, but suspending its participation." So not exactly an article 14 just yet, but we are getting there, because with no sides seriously talking or listening to one another, it will only be a matter of time as there really is no other outcome possible.
Where even to begin on this one? I remember making a short video on this exact issue a few years ago when the United States was talking about withdrawing from the INF treaty. "Should the US withdraw form the INF treaty in 2019 and should Russia then trigger article 14 from the New Start treaty, it would be the first time since the 1972 SALT agreement that the US and Russia were not bound by any legally binding arms control agreement."
I'm actually surprised it lasted this long to be honest. I mean, since the INF cancellation we've had about 75 billion Euros worth of missiles and arms sent to Ukraine, a literal terrorist bombing of a German-Russian gas pipeline and even further Nato expansion ambitions which are solely kept in balance due to Ankara first demanding to have Kurdish fighters now living in Sweden extradited to Turkey.
I actually doubt many will realize the gravity of this and it of course doesn't mean there will be WW3 next week with a billion ballistic nuclear missiles raining own upon us, but in the long run, we are all less safe, in more danger than ever before and more money will be wasted on bombs and missiles while people are either starving or sleeping on the streets. War really is a lose-lose scenario as some degens don't seem to realize you can't take your weapons stock profits to hell with you. So maybe, just maybe, some people need to be more focused on eliminating profits from war and military contractors instead of being obsesses with the crypto markets?
But why is this "the last" arms control treaty anyway? If preventing a world war with these type of weapons which will surely kill us all, isn't having more and better treaties a safer option? Well, behold.
