Top general wants key nuclear pact with Russia expanded to include new weapons

It is not a surprise ⁦@US_Stratcom⁩ supports New START but this article reveals how ⁦@AmbJohnBolton⁩ will try to kill the treaty. We must keep New START as it is. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
There are lots of ideas, some of the good, for how the US should seek to contain Russian nuclear capabilities. But we have one chance to extend New START and any attempt to amend, alter or expand treaty will require Senate to approve. Will. Not. Happen. Before New START expires
And that is John Bolton’s strategy. Make a set of demands to expand New START to cover tactical or novel nuclear weapons and when Russia declines use that as an excuse to kill the treaty. Trump and Bolton have Zero desire to save New START.
New START is last nuclear restraint agreement between US and Russia and their 13000+ nuclear weapons and enabled on site inspections in both countries. Without it, there is nuclwar anarchy and worst case planning. The loss of New START would be a strategic threat to US and allies
New START can be extended by Presidents at stoke of a pen. US still has not said it favors New START extension. If Trump will not extend Treaty Congress should make extension a condition of most nuclear modernization. Without nuclear guardrails, US should not play Bolton’s game.
