Russia violates arms control treaty while their spy ship appears off the US coast: reports

Russia violates arms control treaty while their spy ship appears off the US coast: reports

        


U.S. officials believe that Russia secretly deployed a cruise missile, according to a New York Times report. The move would violate the arms control treaty that ended the Cold War, administration officials told the paper.

At the same time, Fox News reported Tuesday that a Russian spy ship was spotted patrolling off the east coast of the United States. Officials say that the ship was seen 70 miles off the coast of Delaware and was moving north at 10 knots.

United States territory lines extend 12 nautical miles off the coast of the lands.

In an interview with Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” Trump attacked then-President Barack Obama for being “weak” and “ineffective” on issues of foreign policy.

“I believe I know far more about foreign policy than he knows,” Trump said. “Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine [and] how tough he is with Russia, in the meantime they took over Crimea.”

Two weeks before Trump was inaugurated, he took to Facebook to explain how Russia will respect the U.S. again under his leadership.

“Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only ‘stupid’ people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!”

It is unclear where the Russian spy ship is going.

I wonder how common it is for other countries' spy ships to be so close to our shores?  I wonder what past administrations have done if this has occurred before?

I'm surprised that they would need to spy.

And 4 of their planes, fully armed, buzzed one of our ships out in the ocean. And wouldn't answer us when we tried to contact them.

I think trump has reneged on whatever he promised Putin and this is a warning that Russia isn't going to play his stupid games. Putin should have known though that trump is famous for not following through on any of his promises.

But now, all of us are going to have to suffer and be afraid of what they plan to do to us. This time a war could be on our own soil.

And they didn't violate anything. They were in International waters.

I wish the liberals would just accept defeat and stop trying to drub up conspiracy theories about Russia.

Extremely uncommon according to the Coast Guard.

There were Nazi shops off the east coast during WWII, but I don't think anything since then.

Did you read your own article? This does not happen frequently.

And yes, they are in international waters but Russia is violating a treaty signed by Reagan and Gorbachev in 1987. Mentioned in your article.

So no, not business as usual.

I happened before. however they didn't violate anything here. I am interested in why but not conspiracy theories.
