(Worthy News) - A top U.S. military official has said that U.S. intelligence agencies believe Russia is likely conducting low-yield nuclear testing that may be violation of a major international treaty.

Lieutenant General Robert Ashley said in a speech on May 29 that Russia could be doing tests that go "beyond what is believed necessary, beyond zero yield."

The problem, he said, was that Russia "has not been willing to affirm" they are adhering to the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]

  1. Uh ....... so what. Is this just another allegation ...... like Assad being accused of using chemicals 3 times, then found to have been used by the terrorists and not by Assad. I really don't put much credence to anything that comes out of the Pentagon ...... which is still loaded with Obama Generals. Remember all those Generals that Obama fired and replaced with his own puppy dogs. Well, they're still there.

  2. Seriously? The USA is moaning about Russia not complying with nuclear treaties when the USA formally decided to break all ties with its nuclear treaties with Russia? Makes no sense.
