US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — According to the Russian satellite news agency Moscow on April 2, the US State Department data shows that Russia has reduced its nuclear warheads by 100 since September 2019, compared with only three in the United States.
The results came out, and public opinion was in an uproar. The despicable tricks of the White House not only deceived Russia, but also received fierce criticism from many countries in the world, but Trump really gave the world a lesson.
Russia and the United States signed the “New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty” in 2010. According to the agreement, both parties have an obligation to limit their armed forces to 700 nuclear weapon delivery vehicles, 1,550 nuclear warheads, and 800 launchers.
According to information published on the website of the US State Department, as of now, Russia has deployed a total of 485 intercontinental ballistic missiles and ballistic missiles on heavy bombers and submarines, a decrease of 28 from September last year; and the United States is 655, compared with 668 previously. It seems that there have been 13 reductions, but in fact Russian ballistic missiles were equipped with 1,426 nuclear warheads, but now it has been reduced to 1,326, while the United States used to have 1,376, and now it has 1,373, but only 3 reductions.
In addition, there are land-based nuclear weapons. Russia had a total of 757 deployed and undeployed launchers in September last year. The current figure is 754; while the United States has 800 cases throughout, the number has not changed. To sum up, it can be seen that whether it is space-based, sea-based, or land-based, the number of nuclear warheads owned by Russia has been significantly reduced, but the United States clamored to reduce nuclear weapons, but it was almost indifferent in action.
Looking back at history, it is not difficult to find that the practice of the United States is really too numerous to mention. In 2016, the US State Department canceled its plan to approve the sale of 26,000 assault rifles to the Philippine police and government agencies, on the pretext of concern about human rights violations by the Philippine government ’s anti-drug operations.
Later, according to the Russia Today report, Duterte recalled the fact that the United States stopped selling assault rifles to the Philippine National Police in Tokyo that day, saying: “The United States is another matter, it is too bossy. Their deputy spoke like a general, That’s why I don’t listen to them.
They don’t have any honors. ”There was also Sino-US trade friction in 2018, which had positive results after the two heads of state met at the end of the year. The two heads of state reached a consensus to stop the imposition of new tariffs, and instructed the economic teams of the two countries to step up consultations and reach a specific agreement for mutual benefit and win-win in the direction of canceling all tariff increases.
However, just before the 11th round of Sino-US economic and trade consultations began, the US suddenly released news that it would increase the tax rate on the US $ 200 billion Chinese imports from the US from 10% to 25% from the early hours of May 10th. And finally implemented. So far, several rounds of economic and trade consultations have returned to zero, and China has to take countermeasures.
Facts have proved that the United States is a repeat offender. But after Russia cut 100 nuclear warheads, the White House cut only three. This practice also surprised the outside world.
From this point of view, in the process of reducing strategic weapons and nuclear warheads, the United States always holds the attitude of having an absolute advantage.
This idea is exactly the same as the signing of the “Reduction” treaty. On the surface, it is to maintain the world’s nuclear balance, but in fact it is trying to trick its opponents to give up their advantages, so that they can dominate the country! Moral support from many, scant support. At present, the actions of the White House have been criticized by many justice countries.
