US formally withdraws from Open Skies Treaty that bolstered European security

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/11/22/politics/us-withdrawal-open-skies/index.html

CNN)The US on Sunday formally exited the decades-old Open Skies Treaty, some six months after President Donald Trump first announced the decision, according to the State Department.

The 1992 treaty allows the 34 member countries to conduct short notice, unarmed, reconnaissance flights over the other countries to collect data on their military forces and activities.

The Trump administration has cited Russian restrictions on Open Skies flights as the reason why it sought to exit the treaty, accusing Moscow of imposing limits on flights near its exclave of Kaliningrad, an area between Poland and Lithuania where the Russian military maintains a robust presence.

1. Donny is doing Vlad's work right up to the end.

How can anybody not see that Trump is a Russian asset?

12. So Trump (and Putin) know this will be reversed shortly after Biden is sworn in

Why would Trump do this now? Sure, to piss off Europeans and poke Biden in the eye.

But might there be something more sinister in store? We've seen a lot of capitulation to Putin, but so far, no shit hitting the fan.

I'm frightened that Trump's last stand may involve Russia and war prior to 1/20/2021.
