Russia will respond to any American deployment of short or intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Europe by targeting not only the countries where they are stationed, but the U.S. itself, President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday.

In his toughest remarks yet on a potential new arms race, Putin said Russia was not seeking confrontation and would not take the first step to deploy missiles in response to Washington's decision this month to quit a landmark Cold War-era arms control treaty.

But he said that U.S. policymakers, some of whom he said were obsessed with U.S. exceptionalism, should calculate the risks before taking any steps.

"It's their right to think how they want. But can they count? I'm sure they can. Let them count the speed and the range of the weapons systems we are developing," Putin told Russia's political elite to strong applause.

"Russia will be forced to create and deploy types of weapons which can be used not only in respect of those territories from which the direct threat to us originates, but also in respect of those territories where the centers of decision-making are located.”

Alleging Russian violations, Washington said this month it was suspending its obligations under the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty and starting the process of quitting it, untying its hands to develop new missiles.

The pact banned either side from stationing short and intermediate-range, land-based missiles in Europe and its demise raises the prospect of a new arms race between Washington and Moscow.

Russia denies violating the INF treaty. Putin responded to the American move by saying Russia would mirror the U.S. moves by suspending its own obligations and quitting the pact.

The conspiracy theorists will claim Putin is just making a public statement like this to convince the American people that Trump isn’t secretly his puppet.

The 'Russian Collusion Delusion' has pushed Trump to enact policies to show he's "tough" against Putin. "No one is tougher against Putin than me!"

We are inching closer and closer to another Cold War. Unbelievable. Everyone is to blame here.

Russia and the US have had a lot of close military calls since 2016.

Wtf?  Trump wouldn't impose sanctions that he was supposed to early on.   Him being tough on Russia is a farce.

Then you haven't paid attention to many of the events around the world. For example, arming Ukraine (a big blow in Russia-US relations),bombing bases in Syria and intervening by arming rebels that are fighting Russia.  Also, they are at odds over Venezuela which both sides are pretty involved in.

America is supporting Neo Nazis, Arab enslavers of Africans, the global drug trade and ISIS  in order to reaffirm a unipolar world. Putin wants a multipolar world where the Anglo American establishment that wrecked havoc over the world and is currently threatening the existence of humanity and the ecosphere aren't the only ones with a say on global affairs, considering that are insane sociopaths using fake diversity and mindless self loathing hedonism as a propaganda tool to put a pretty face on their blatant totalitarianism.
