11/9/18 James Carroll on Trump’s Planned Withdrawal from the INF Treaty

James Carroll discusses President Trump’s intent to withdraw from the INF treaty, which he thinks could usher in a new age of nuclear expansion. The INF helped reverse the buildup of nuclear weapons that was taking place between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, and its reversal might mean a return to the same kind of arms race we saw during the cold war. Most alarmingly of all, nobody in the mainstream seems to care about this and no media outlets will give it much attention.
