Planning for a conflict with the Russian Federation entrusted to the Committee of the Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces

24
The Pentagon once again handed over the task of planning in the event of a potential conflict with Russia from the European Command to the Chiefs of Staff Committee (CSC), reports TASS report from the deputy chairman of the KNS, General Paul Selva.




Selva recalled that during the Cold War, the responsibility of planning for the case of any military operations against the USSR was carried by the KNSH. However, since 1991, this function has been transferred to the European Command.

In the past, we viewed Russia as a European problem,
he noted.

However, now, according to the new US National Defense Strategy, Russia and China are characterized as “global problem sets”.

According to the general, now military planning in relation to Russia and the PRC "will be carried out using all the tools of the Ministry of Defense."

This means that we will not entrust the solution of the problem of competition (with these states) to the heads of this or that military command,
he explained.

A global campaign plan will be built around both (countries - Russia and China). And the head of the combat command will then receive coordinating authority to manage this plan,
clarified Selva.

Any conflict (USA) with China, if it comes to this, will be basically a battle at sea and in the air,
he said.

As for Russia, we can talk "mainly about a battle in the air and on land supported by the sea, since it is impossible to reach Europe without crossing the North Atlantic," the general added.

      And if Russia and China unite, the Chinese do not need to launch rockets, it is enough if one and a half lard of the Chinese march from the west to the east coast of the United States there for a hundred years then the grass will not grow. fellow

        If they march in the amount of 1.000.000 inhabitants per day, then this time will take three with a tail of a year (without days off and holidays). ))) That's to whom the expression "throw caps" is applicable to all 100. )

      We will issue it. But we will also dig ourselves. And the fact that they do not officially mention Europe in planning already means that they write the script for the EU-Russia dance.

    One might think these plans were not there, they were and are constantly being adjusted.

    As for Russia, it could be “mainly a battle in the air and on land supported by the sea, since it is impossible to reach Europe without crossing the North Atlantic,” added General Selva. Recalled from the movie "300 Spartans":
    -... A thousand peoples of our empire will attack you. Our arrows and spears will cover the sun like a cloud.
    - Leonid: Well, then we will fight in the shade.

    In the "war" to play war, it’s not for them to print green wrappers and to scatter them around the world. Navel in a swoop will loose, how to give a drink! negative

      A Russian hero enters the Chinese border and shouts:
      - Hey, a hundred thousand Chinese, come on for the hill to fight ...
      The Chinese gathered and went ... After a couple of days because of the hill
      Russian hero comes out and shouts:
      - Hey, a hundred thousand Chinese, come on for the hill to fight ...
      The Chinese gathered ......................
      After a couple of days, the Russian hero comes out again and shouts:
      - Hey, a hundred thousand Chinese, come on for the hill to fight ...
      The Chinese gathered .... suddenly, from behind a hill, an unfinished creeps out
      Chinese and with the last forces verbs:
      - Do not go, this is an ambush - they are there two am !

      And to "fight" with amers - one bomb on Yellowstone volcano is enough hi

    Question: What did their general staff do before that? Any General Staff of any country has one of the goals of its existence, the preparation of plans for wars, response to threats and other military planning for ANY possible situations and their constant operational adjustment. That is, this is another escalation throw for your people, and in Russian: air shake

    In the event of such a war, they will deal with us and the Chinese at the same time, as with a single power. Here our neighborhood will be in our favor. There is nothing left of the Americans.
