U.S.-Russia tension escalates as Putin ends nuclear cooperation

Tensions between the U.S. and Russia escalated Monday as the Obama administration suspended talks over Syria’s civil war hours after Moscow announced it was ending cooperation with the U.S. on a 16-year-old program for the disposal of weapons-grade plutonium to curb the production of more nuclear bombs.

The Obama administration stopped pursuing diplomacy with Russia amid renewed attacks by Russian and Syrian forces on the city of Aleppo. Frustrated administration officials acknowledged that Syrian President Bashar Assad is making territorial gains with Moscow’s help after the collapse of a cease-fire negotiated by Secretary of State John F. Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“This is not a decision that was taken lightly,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

Not exactly sure what this will mean... but as the article states the Obama administration just suspended talks with Russia over the Syrian War after Moscow announced it has ended a 16 year nuclear proliferation deal with the US.

Is anyone else slightly worried about this? Is this nothing more than a big distraction? Or is the real "October surprise" going to be something we dare not even imagine?

Yeah. After all, part of the whole election messaging is whether or not Trump should have the football. Obama giving a helping hand to Clinton. We're suppose to distrust and fear whichever world power we're told to hate and fear. Today it is Russia.

Maybe Russia is looking for Obama to pay then, like Obama did with Iran.

Kind of shows why we need a trump presidency. Putin and trump have mutual respect for each other.

While Putin would be in a position of strength with Clinton, since who knows what e-mails he has

True, Obama won't even look Putin in the eyes. It's embarrassing.

Trump may respect Putin now, but if he is elected president his ego won't allow Putin to get more attention then himself. The current world we live in today looks bleak. We have government leaders all over the world who are always jockeying for the position of power. While the people of the world just want to live in peace. It's sad we give government so much power to decide our fate.

The human race act like children. We talk about negotiating our differences, but the hate and jealousy we have for each other makes it impossible. I wouldn't be surprised if the human race is stupid enough to destroy ourselves and our beautiful planet. Hate is the catalyst that causes physical confrontation and Trump sure has a lot of it! Be careful what you wish for.

Obama is looking for a serious legacy.

Who can top a nuclear war?

Yeah , we should be worried about this , though its not quite the button fondling levels of the cold war yet , it isn't the cold war anymore.

Globalists can set up wars ,if this is the case then it seems to be after financial disasters mainly , right back to 1918 , and beyond. MIC starts with an 'M'

We've had recently , crisis after 2001 , led to Iraq and Afghan . Crisis after 2008 , led to Libya . When lending banks go , the lloyds and rbs's , the morgan stanleys , and big institutions needed support , its bad .

But what if Central banks , ECB , WB , IMF , are about to collapse (the amount of debt now outweighing the possible recovery _the lent sum being irrecoverable)
what kind of war will they need then ?

Someone on here's been saying , China now joined the world reserve currency - they bought our debt a/c now they own us?

- maybe they want to see old rivals clash and send themselves back a few decades , while it China) moves into future dominance ,
or the globalists together saw the power of or need for future world communism - imagine that ! Its not entirely out of the question at all .

World war 3 coming ? Well there was a one and a two , a Nostradamus and a Bible . Who can say ? If the globalists are seen in the light of day , maybe they will divert , on the other hand its clear to see Putin and Obama don't get on , could speculate all day on this topic , la la la , hope it goes away .

It's an empty threat. Russia can't actually do anything with that plutonium. If they did the Western nations would pass even harder sanctions. Considering the current state of Russia's economy it can't take much more strain. I also don't see China standing by Russia if they start ramping up nuke production. China continued prosperity relies on geopolitical stability. That's not going to happen if the world is at war. Then there's also the fact that such a move would justify everything Putin's neighbors have been worried about.

well if you want to see how the new savior of the world putin and company feel about nukes and how fast they are ready to use them.

start at the 18:15 mark, pay close attention starting at the 20:39 mark, and the 22:30 mark. that there is the savoir of the world from the big bad west.

off topic, you know every country in the middle east needs a King Hussein Abdullah II, that man is smart, i would follow him in a heart beat.

Obama wants to push aside his failures on combatting ISIS, so he's picking a fight with Russia.

What the moron doesn't understand (even after 8 years) is that there is no "safe space" to run to after picking a fight on a global stage.

This is Obama's legacy.

A failure in foreign policy.

Hounddog (or anyone else for that matter), as it relates to the OP, and mounting tensions between US and Russia, can anyone clarify for me what the widely accepted premise is for Crimea on ATS (not what the "official" narrative has been in US media)?

Did the US play a role as a catalyst in what happened in Crimea? The "little green men" without insignias could have been someone other than the Russians, or was that confirmed? Did Russia in fact take over the republic as its own in order to gain strategic control of the region?

I've heard so many conflicting perspectives on this.

The United States finally standing up to Russian provocation is now a "failure of foreign policy"?

I'm starting to believe in the Mandela Effect.

The distraction is, what the hell is the USA doing negotiating ceasefire deals over Syria! a sovereign state half way around the world if their efforts to remove the President of Syria and defy international law wasn't still in full effect.
Just boggles the mind.
