    MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s Ministry of Defence said on Tuesday it had shown the country’s new Avangard nuclear missile system to U.S. inspectors for the first time, a move Moscow said showed a key arms control treaty was still effective.

    Russia is due to deploy next month the Avangard system, a hypersonic glide vehicle designed to sit atop an intercontinental ballistic missile, one of several new types of weapons touted by President Vladimir Putin as ahead of their time.

    The Defence Ministry said a group of visiting U.S. arms inspectors had been shown the Avangard system from Nov. 24-26 under the auspices of the New START treaty, which came into effect in 2011.

    The treaty limits the number of strategic nuclear warheads the world’s two biggest nuclear powers can deploy to no more than 1,550 each.

    Putin wants to extend the START treaty, which expires in 2021. Trump doesn’t want to because Obama did it, and he likes big bombs.

    Do you think the current Democrats in the house will let him sign a treaty with Russia?

      It’s strange how the Democrats have become the cold war (and hot war) party.

      Trump, to his credit, has tried to establish good relations with the Russians.

    Is this a suicide mission? How else are we going to hasten Armageddon without faster missiles pointed back at us?

    I guess electing Trump was just the original dedication to suicide.

    These people think that Bernie is the ‘radical’ choice?
