The growing tension between Russia and the United States over cruise missiles and the daring patrols of Russian nuclear submarines is threatening to bring back the arms rivalry between two of the world’s most dominant nuclear forces. The U.S. has warned it will take action in retaliation for the new cruise missile Russia had recently developed. According to the Guardian, the U.S. had accused Russia of violating one of the key arms treaties in the Cold War.
