US withdrawal from INF Treaty to threaten whole world and to cause new arms race


Interview with Penzanews 6.6.2017

Assessing the possible consequences of the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty, Pal Steigan, Norwegian politician, publisher, writer, independent entrepreneur in the field of culture and information technology, also pointed to the threat of destabilization of the world security situation.

“By raising the issue of a unilateral US break with this accord US politicians are stepping up the war preparations and threaten to destabilize the military situation in Europe even more. These weapons are weapons particularly adapted to a European war theatre and would add significantly to the danger of war. With US bases and weapons systems readied for nuclear weapons brought up to the Russian border the danger even of a war by mistake would be increased further,” the expert said.

He stressed that the INF Treaty was an important step to reduce the nuclear arms race.

“If the US withdraws from the treaty Russia would have no other option but to start developing these weapons herself. This will greatly further the nuclear arms race,” the Norwegian politician said.

In his opinion, compliance with the INF Treaty makes the security situation more calm.

As long as there are binding treaties and detente between the nuclear powers the situation is less dangerous. But with unilateral withdrawal the rules of the game are changed in dangerous ways,” Pal Steigan said.

A specific problem is that in some circles in the US politicians believe that a nuclear war can be won, and they have started to talk about coming wars with Russia and China, he added.

“The nuclear scientists have set the Doomsday Clock to two and a half minutes before midnight. With a US withdrawal from INF I am afraid they’ll have to put it another minute closer,” the analyst concluded.

  1. In my opinion, one should never underestimate the dangers of russian weapons, they are here, they will be used here, and most likely be used first: this is a given thing from someone surrounded by enemies beating the swords on their shields…
    But that is in reality a moot point: who started it. It will be ants and beetles that finishes it…..

    On the weapons itself, I think its a pretty fair asessment that the russian counter-weapons are alredy ready, and most likely ready to be fielded.

    In earlier times russia was thoroughly behind in their development-curve.
    But as we have seen with more and more complicated weapons systems, like F22 and F35, cost have escalated out of control end endless years have been spent trying to make botched designs work.

    The russians have always followed a different philosophy, and have demonstrated over the last two years in Syria that they now have modern, complex weapons systems that can survive the rigors of combat conditions.

    So the conclusion most likely is that this warning is too little, too late and that we have a FUBAR situation on hand.

  2. Fra «informationclearinghouse» (info). Sakser et lite avsnitt fra en artikkel verdt å få med seg og som handler om krigstaten USA, hvor gjelden bare øker. Dollaren møter konkurranse, hegemoniet er i fare. Libya mestret de ødelegge, men Russland, China, Iran … og potensielt mange flere land står iveien for dem.

    «Consequently, the world is faced with a global superpower in mortal decline, which is now expressing its existential fears with wanton military aggression across the globe. This will result in a grave threat to humanity as the US grapples for its place in a new multipolar global economy» – sitat slutt.

    Vil krigsmakten USA sine europeiske partnere «IN CRIME»/NATO fortsatt stå dem bi, i ødeleggelser av flere land og folk. Hvor og hvordan stopper deres virksomhet i ondskapens tjeneste? Er der bare 1-en utvei. Den som vil ramme oss alle..
