WASHINGTON (PNN) - October 2, 2018 - Fascist Police States of Amerika Ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey Hutchinson, said today that Russia must cease development of a Treaty-Banned Intermediate Range Nuclear Missile, or the FPSA will seek to destroy it militarily before it becomes operational.
Russia has denied for years it is developing any such missile, which is banned under the INF (Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces) Treaty.
The FPSA believes Russia is developing a ground-launched system in breach of the Cold War INF treaty that could allow Russia to launch a nuclear strike on Europe at short notice. The treaty bans medium-range missiles capable of hitting Europe or Alaska. The FPSA and Russia celebrated its 30th anniversary in Geneva in 2017.
Hutchison said Washington remained committed to a diplomatic solution but was prepared to consider a military strike if Russian development of the medium-range system continued.
“At that point, we would be looking at the capability to take out a (Russian) missile that could hit any of our countries,” she told a news conference.
FPSA Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said he would discuss the issue with his NATO counterparts at a scheduled two-day meeting in Brussels beginning Wednesday.
“I cannot forecast where it will go - it is a decision for the president - but I can tell you that both on Capitol Hill and in (the Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division), there is a lot of concern about this situation, and I’ll return with the advice of our allies and engage in that discussion to determine the way ahead,” he told reporters in Paris.
Russia regards as dangerous a statement by Washington's envoy to NATO who said Moscow must halt its covert development of a banned cruise missile system or the FPSA would seek to destroy it before it becomes operational.
"It seems that people who make such statements do not realize the level of their responsibility and the danger of aggressive rhetoric," said Russia's Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova.
