Polish discovery: the US Army is weak and falling apart

54
The US Army is weak and in crisis. Problems are present in all kinds of American troops. In the event of war in Europe from the Americans there is nothing to protect!




If a military conflict begins in Europe, the US army will not be able to protect its allies, warns the author of the Polish edition "Polityka". To enumerate "all the problems of all types of US troops" would have to publish "a multi-volume encyclopedia", the website quotes the publication "InoTV".

We present the main problems of the American army, collected by Polityka. The range of problems covers the areas from strategic nuclear weapons to infantry combat equipment. Outdated weapons inferior equipment potential enemy. The crisis negatively affects the combat readiness of the army, which is designed to protect the interests of US allies in Europe.

To patch the holes, you need at least 10 years. This year, the Deputy Chief of Staff of the American Ground Forces, General Daniel Ellin, reported to the House Armed Services Committee on the crisis situation with training, equipping and staffing ground forces. The general tried to explain to politicians that the “world hegemon” remained so only in his dreams. The author of the article adds: “... the equipment is already in such a state that it threatens the military more than any enemy”!

The American fleet, for example, "sinks itself." In January, ran aground in Tokyo Bay "USS Antietam". In May, USS Lake Champlain collided with a South Korean fishing vessel. Then followed the incidents with the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John McCain, which killed seventeen people. US senators were shocked. The response of the sailors was disappointing: the causes of the crisis were in outdated equipment and insufficient manning and preparedness of the crews.

With land forces, the situation is even worse. Over the past twenty years, “asymmetric operations” have undermined the very spirit of American soldiers. Problems added and budget cuts. Chief of Staff of the US Army gene. Mark Maili claims that “there is a shortage of military” for solving strategic tasks. Indeed, over the past 8 years, ground forces have lost almost 90.000 troops!

From here, we add, we can make an interesting conclusion. The Third World War is not what the United States can do now. No matter how hard Mr. Trump is, he will not have time to rearm and retool at least one branch of service on his throne in his short term. At least a decade is required not for the general rise of the armed forces to a different level, but only for the "closing" of holes! But "potential opponents" also will not sit idly by. That is why Mr. Trump will be more likely to fight on Twitter than anywhere else on Korean soil.

        No, the Poles want to cancerize the whole of Europe. So they probe the soil.
        The Russians will not attack. The Poles know this. Americans are weak. But there is simply no European army. So that the Poles are marking the throne.

              the connoisseur seems to be the same .. lousy journalist knows all the ins and outs of the American army.
              Journalists as a whole have the same approach - from some kind of threshing floor to mold an information bomb. They didn’t have such a concept as journalistic ethics, but now they aren’t even there. Sheer lies.

                  Poles, unlike the Germans, have no deterrent after the Second World War. At present, the French are just a name. Polyakov fed the entire EU all the post-Soviet time. They have enough ambitions for the whole of Europe. So, if Europe continues to pray for NATO, the Poles will quietly create the strongest army in the EU.

    What should be the conclusion: urgently opening a wider wallet? If the author is so worried about the American army, let him sponsor.
    As incidents with the fleet, I have counter-questions and suggestions: 1) are there new ships in the Russian Navy? 2) faced with the South Korean, and where did they look: the helmsman and the watch commander? They sat on copper, but I have a question: maybe the navigator needs another? Still cheaper than a new one.
    I also have a suggestion: let them elect for president ..... He will restore order to the evil rabbit

      There are problems in the US Army, but not of this kind. Their main problem is the high salaries of soldiers
      and high pension officers. It takes a large part of the budget, and not enough for new weapons.

          Brains in bulk. Thousands of engineers move to the States every year
          and scientists from around the world. And from Russia as well. Some begin to work in the military-industrial complex.
          And from the universities - the best in the world - part goes to the military-industrial complex.

            Why then slow down the development? An engineer — an engineer of discord — he himself worked with such “engineers” who had received higher education. How is it - scientists from all over the world come together, and paradoxes complain about holes in the army themselves?

              What developments do they slow down?
              The Americans work - they give out new developments - much faster than Europeans or Russians. Fleet: all new types of ships and submarines - strictly on schedule.
              Aviation is the same. You can sometimes say that the development is expensive. But European ones are even more expensive. But the final products are workable and delivered on time.

    No army can be constantly strong and alert. This is fundamentally impossible at the current level. Just because even a money printer cannot provide the shaft of funds needed for such an incredible business. This is when people fought with swords ... however, and then it was not possible to ensure constant combat readiness.
    So now everything goes in cycles. Politicians are gradually preparing the situation for a new war. By the time the war can be declared and (presumably) won, funds are being accumulated, modernization and replacement of equipment, training of people is underway.
    The rest of the time, the army only pretends that it is strong. It is around these cycles that world politics is being built, and the economy too. As a matter of fact, this is largely why the West was sobbing with happiness when they "defeated" the USSR. The release of such cycles from tension was desperate. Everyone relaxed, the European armies instantly stagnated, a blunder ... And suddenly it turned out that the threat didn’t disappear! No USSR? So the United States began to gut pockets ...

    This is so if we look at the problem exclusively from the point of view of the US military participation against Russia in land operations, but this is nonsense. They will fight with Russia through the wrong hands, and consider their participation only in the use of nuclear weapons in the hope that Russia, fighting off on several fronts along the perimeter, will lose its vigilance and ability to detect and prevent a disarming nuclear strike in a timely manner.
