Trump has actually — and stupidly and recklessly — decided to withdraw from a treaty that Reagan and Gorbachev signed in 1987 to reduce the likelihood of nuclear war. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty reduced the dangerous nuclear confrontation in Europe.

I posted to my blog some information about this already. See this link: http://parallaxperspectives.org/trump-provokes-new-nuclear-arms-race-and-war-by-pulling-out-of-the-1987-inf-treaty-that-reagan-gorbachev-signed
Now Senator Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) has introduced S.312, which is described as “a bill to prevent a nuclear arms race resulting from weakened international restrictions on the proliferation of intermediate- and shorter-range missiles, and for other purposes.” It would ill would make it more difficult for the Trump administration to obtain funds for the procurement, fight-testing or deployment of any ground-launched or ballistic missiles, according to the text of the legislation.
Let’s urge our U.S. Senators to co-sponsor and vigorously support S. 312 to inhibit Trump from provoking a new nuclear arms race with Russia.
