Why is it that Russia sees the benefit in ‘better, cheaper, faster’ and we don’t?
“The talks have stalled over Russia’s opposition to retaining the ban on the encryption of the telemetry monitoring data on missile tests. START banned such encryption so each side could monitor missile tests from a distance to make sure the other side complies with the treaty.
Russia has balked at keeping that provision, saying the exchange of data would be unfair since it is testing new weapons to replace the Soviet-era ones while the U.S. isn’t developing any new missiles.”
Our aging weapons are becoming more and more dangerous… and unpredictable. Time to replace them.
