Mattis: US to Respond to ‘Blatant’ Russia Violation of Arms Treaty

Just days after US Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison threatened to start a war against Russia by preemptively destroying a certain type of Russian missiles over a perceived violation of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, Defense Secretary James Mattis is continuing the saber-rattling.

Mattis claimed Russia is “in blatant violation” of INF, and that the US will not allow the “cavalier disregard” to continue. He says the US is reviewing a series of potential diplomatic and military options to be taken about it, and that not taking action is “untenable.”

The INF treaty issue has been ongoing for years, with the US objecting to a certain Russian test. Russia insists the missiles in no way violate INF, and there appears to have been little attempt to discuss the matter at all between the two countries, with the US just claiming violations in increasingly desperate terms, and threatening to take what would seem to be very reckless actions in response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does Mattis have any specifics to which he can refer when talking to the American people?!?!

Because in my world, particularly when you are dealing with a world power, as Russia is, you had better have some very specific reasons for making these accusations, or you will make yourself look like a laughing stock, and potentially find yourself on the receiving end of a world war.
