Everyone saw this withdraw coming but the issue that I think most are glossing over is where they would be deployed.

Most likely Micronesian islands like Guam and/or Saipan also some in Alaska.
To name but a few.
The INF banded a class of missiles with or without conventional warheads. It simply block banned ground based missiles with a set range of 500Km to 1000km and 1000km to 5500km.
With the withdrawal from the treaty the US would be able to employ systems of this class from launchers like the MLRS. There is already talk of the Long Range Precision Fires originally limited to 499Km range getting modifications to extend its range.
It also means the US is now open to its own Ground based anti ship missile systems beyond the 500Km limits.

Pershing-II and BGM-109G got axed due to the INF treaty. Don't know about Pershing-II type weapons but the BGM-109G like weapons could make a comback.

Venezuela /Cuba can be considered as well.
.... really? Did you read the title?
I know what you are up to but again what is the end game

Si Cuba.... oh wait we played that game once remember. 90 miles from Florida the US set up an Embargo. Cuban Missile Crisis Take 2.

Venezuela is over 4500 Km from the US okay you get an IRBM base.
good luck the country is unstable as heck right now as is. Add that to the fire and the unstable regime just got all the attention it never wanted.

Congratulations you just justified a southern east coast ABM site in Florida.

The Cuban missile crisis started NOT with the Cuban missiles, but with the USA missiles in turkey.


It ended when the USA agreed to withdraw the missiles from Turkey, and the Soviets did the same with Cuba.

This getting the same situation, with tomahawk missiles in Poland / Romania .

Re read the title. The Word Asia.

The US has not deployed Tomahawk missiles to Romania or Poland. And all evidence is they don’t intend to. The Mk41 launch system may be Compatible but the aim is Missile defense.
The US insists the system has measures taken to prevent loading of TLAM by aegis ashore.
As yet neither site is operational and unless TLAMs are proven on the deck at either site it’s just politics.

The topic try to found out where the USA will deploy to its military bases in other countries missile systems to target China, NK, Vietnam , Bangladesh and so on.

It is very important to understand that the Soviets was willing to go up to the nuclear war with to USA to get rid of the missiles from Turkey, the whole story of the "Cuban missile" was a political move to avoid the complete face losing of the Capitol by telling the USA citizens the fact its government was willing to do stupid and aggressive things with the other nuclear superpower.

So, question is, China will be willing to go up to and including the full out nuclear war to get rid of the USA missiles from the pacific ?

The Soviet went up to that point.

Well this is a stupid move by the US.

The INF only limits ground based missile, it did nothing to limit ship based tomahawks, which is the US’s primary long range strike missile.

The missiles banned by the INF are only of use in a fight on your own doorstep; which the US does not expect to have to fight in the foreseeable feature.

As such the INF limited the Soviets/Russians far more than America.

Australia has already ruled out hosting any new intermediate ranged US missiles on its soil, and the same economic and military calculations apply to all other US leaning nations who might be potential hosts to such weapons, especially in Asia; which seems to be a main reason the US ripped up the INF as it wants a new similar treaty to also include China (good luck with that).
