In case you needed another reason to believe Russia is not our friend amidst the thousands, literally thousands of reasons that already exist and they are indeed the Diet Soviet Union, reports from the Hudson Institute assert that Russia is violating the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty by testing above the zero yield limits.Lieutenant General Robert P. Ashley asserted such when discussing the issue at an arms control forum.
"The United States believes that Russia probably is not adhering to its nuclear testing moratorium in a manner consistent with the ‘zero-yield’ standard,"
What a bunch of toolbags. Here we are being totes cool guys, not violating nuclear arms treaties and then there is Russia who has violated one, probably two within the last few years. It's easy to rage on our foreign policy, but when we maybe kinda sorta act in good faith with these treaties, and then the other guy with a large nuclear arsenal decides they don't want to play by the rules anymore...well it's easy to stop being critical of ourselves and look at these wobblecocks like they believe mayonnaise, lima beans and peas are good toppings on pizza.Yeah, think about that, Mayo, Lima Beans, and Pea pizza...got that image in your head? Good. Now you know how we feel about Russia playing these stupid games. It's almost as if everyone doesn't believe World War 3 will happen, but also at the same time believe in it enough to violate the treaty and therefore cause World War 3. The facepalming is extreme here ladies and gentlemen.Buncha self-fulfilling prophetic douchebags if you ask us.Anyways, there isn't much detail on the subject aside from Lieutenant General Robert P. Ashley asserting such, but given that he was on a fancy schmancy board at a super dope think tank like the Hudson Institute, his words might have some legitimate reasoning or factual data behind them...might.
