Putin speaks of Russia’s two outside military bases. TWO! How many does the U.S. have? 900? 1400? Figures vary. But I just noticed that Nick Turse has published another hard-hitting piece.
Very much appreciate Putin’s hard, punchy attitude — appropriate out-picturing of this week’s Saturn square Mars and Pluto square Mercury.
Putin answers questions from a UK journalist in relation to his intentions of getting along with the US. The treaty that he refers to in the conversation is the The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM Treaty or ABMT) between the United States and the Soviet Union on the limitation of the anti-ballistic missile (ABM) systems used in defending areas against ballistic missile-delivered nuclear weapons. The United States withdrew in 2002.
