The New Arms Race Begins:

• https://www.zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden

After last Sunday's first ever Pentagon test of a previously banned ground-launched cruise missile with a range of over 500km in a post-INF treaty world, Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday said he has ordered a reciprocal response, meaning the Kremlin will likely soon conduct its own highly visible land-based missile test. 

The Pentagon on Monday confirmed the flight test of a "conventionally configured ground-launched cruise missile" held at a base in California the day prior, and released video of the launch. 

n his remarks before Russia's Security Council on Friday, Putin was scathing in his reaction to the US missile test as well as American Defense Secretary Mark Esper's recent signalling of a possible missile deployment to Asia "sooner than later". Putin said any planned Asia-Pacific region US deployment "affects our core interests as it is close to Russia's borders".
