The Pentagon spoke about the strategies of the United States in the war with Russia and China

The Deputy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Paul Selva, spoke about plans for a possible war with Russia and China.


Strategies that can bring success in US wars with Russia and China are very different from each other, and will require large resource costs, Selva said, Defense News reports.

The Pentagon spoke about the strategies of the United States in the war with Russia and China


Any battle with China, if it happens, will basically be a battle at sea and in the air
- said Selva. According to him, a potential conflict with China will most likely require a "significant contribution" of the Navy and Air Force, and the army and marines will provide support.

In turn, Russia will have to confront in the air and on the ground, said Selva. However, the general noted that Russia cannot be reached bypassing the Atlantic Ocean, which means that naval battles cannot be avoided.

According to Selva, despite the fact that Russia in the new US national defense strategy is called a “global” challenge, Washington has other threats. Among them, he called the DPRK and Iran, talking about how to combat these countries.

It is easy to plan a war with North Korea, the general said, since Pyongyang gets its weapons through deals with Russia and China. Iran, according to Selva, is a more difficult adversary due to its “geography”.

Recall that in December a new US national security strategy was published, containing a statement that Russia and China are challenging the power, influence and interests of the United States, reports Vzglyad.

      In general, there’s some kind of nonsense: any war between Russia and the states is an exchange of nuclear weapons. The American layman, however, shatters such statements by his generals.

            And mattresses are worried about "high resource costs."

            Mattresses always consider conflicts from two perspectives - acceptable damage and unacceptable damage. The option of a showdown with Russia or China clearly promises unacceptable damage to them, so they will act within the framework of a strategy of economic strangulation. The option with the DPRK is tempting, but Kim Jong-un’s presence of nuclear weapons and high readiness to use them are also fraught with unacceptable damage. The option with Iran is inconvenient geographically, but safe from the point of view of receiving a response using nuclear weapons, and also allows you to hang the lion's share of the costs associated with material and human losses on your satellites like Saudi Arabia and junior trustees in the NATO bloc, which opens up opportunities for the United States unlimited supply of weapons and profit without major losses from the United States, which can be attributed to acceptable damage.

            They simply write off human losses as “collateral” losses.

Especially with our armed forces, designed only to fight terrorists, and with our raw materials economy, weakened by the liberal comprador policy of the defense industry, and a large group of the 5th column in state power.
      As for nuclear weapons, in the current conditions no one will use it, it’s more expensive for itself. Naive people, damn it. laughing laughing laughing

        I do not agree. I believe that our armed forces are able to withstand the army of almost any state at a decent level. To do this, there is much, means of command and control and destruction. Today, the Russian army is able to restrain almost all of Europe, without the use of nuclear weapons.

        Why not? Firstly, I don’t think that in the event of a nuclear war it will be a continental shove into the potato field, but rather tactical mutual attacks on military facilities, with the goal of creating strategic superiority, which will increase if necessary. Secondly - as a weapon of last chance, when there is nothing to lose.

          How can the Russian Army, "reformed" organizationally into a brigade-battalion structure, seriously fight "with any enemy"? We only have 1500 flight personnel. There are no regiments, divisions capable of stopping in an organized and powerful way and further starting to smash the enemy. Yes there. Watch the video of Lieutenant General Sobolev V.I.

            I am not a supporter of the theory of repetition of the Second World War. There will be no wall-to-wall fights and trench warfare, primarily tactical missile attacks and sabotage operations, well, and punishment from the sky, in the form of unmanned and not very LA aircraft, their fight against air defense. As a climax, it is tactical and then strategic nuclear weapons.

              Something similar happened in the history of military art. Do not remember? The doctrine of the Italian general D. Douai.
              "The essence of Douai’s views was that the decisive weapon of the war would be the air fleet. His first task would be to gain dominance in the air. After solving this task, Douay argued, the air fleet, having launched widespread offensive operations against the enemy’s vital centers, will so suppress the ability to resist enemy country, that further warfare will become impossible for her, and she will surrender. "- http://militera.lib.ru/science/npv/02.html
              Not justified. On the battlefield, final fixing him to the winner, the infantry was and will play the most important role, or rather, in its current form, infantry, correctly and skillfully organized, and supported by tanks, artillery, aviation, air defense and other types and types of troops.

                  Watch the video of Lieutenant General Sobolev V.I. - He is a professional, as they say "there is nowhere higher."
                  And I'm just a fan of military history, although once at the military department of the university, we studied such a subject, “History of military art,” and later served as an officer of the IAS Air Force.
                  From my point of view, and I completely agree with General Sobolev, we have the Army "reformed" to fight terrorist organizations, we do not have an Army to deter a serious aggressor.
                  I served in Transbaikalia, if you drive from Chita to Zabaikalsk, you can see dozens, if not hundreds, of abandoned military towns and garrisons, military airfields.
                  He served in Borz, at the airport, in my time, there were 2 aviation regiments, then they added another helicopter regiment, not a single one today, an abandoned aerodrome with partially removed concrete slabs, a military residential town with a dozen also abandoned, looted multi-access five-story buildings, plus such barracks, boxes, etc.
                  And so in most military garrisons of Transbaikalia and the Far East.
                  In fact, the border with China is not protected by Russia. For example, in the eastern part of the Chita region, only the Borzoi motorized rifle brigade “reformed” from the tank “blue” division, as we called it, remained only in Borzoi. What can she protect if the Chinese trample? Never mind!
                  Do you think better on the western border? Yes, the same thing. It’s only the last year or two, they have come to their senses, have again begun, it seems, to restore armies, divisions and regiments, but in single pieces. What can they do? Big doubt.

                      Illiterate you reason. By the way, on the site it is customary to communicate with strangers on YOU.
                      If you want to be a state partner, as you write, and maintain good relations with this partner, you must first rely on a strong Army so that this partner does not turn your hands in partnerships.
                      If there is no strong Army capable of potentially restraining a partner’s neighbor, then he will begin to dictate tough partnership conditions for you, which now happens when China pushes its policy - “Russia has a lot of land, but few people inhabit and use it, China has little territory but a lot of people who have nowhere to put. "
                      You don’t see this “partnership” policy in action, when entire regions of Transbaikalia and the Far East were given to China for a pittance “for 49 years of lease”, and hundreds of thousands of Chinese people in our territory and in our cities? Just try to call them to order and accomplish what we need, see how the “partner” China rises to their defense. Which by the way, and it was, if anyone remembers when, when overclocking the Cherkizon market in Moscow, they affected the interests of Chinese entrepreneurs.
                      And now the flow of Chinese going to Lake Baikal, and buying land there to organize Chinese tourism there. And the so-called TORs, in which they can live, conduct economic activities, actually establish their own laws and elect power?
                      Think about it, then you won’t talk about partners without quotes.
                      And for example, the now-printed map of China, including the Far East, Transbaikalia, including Lake Baikal. Look at her, she is on the Internet.

    and they don’t care, Americans live on a separate planet. Hitler also followed the slaves and the earth. And these are the same.

    So they are waiting for the fate of Hitler! laughing

    and they across the Atlantic need to drive their European vassals forward to the east. It’s scary for ourselves.

    So, this is how much they will go! laughing

    They really think in terms of WWII. Carriers, convoys, the war with Russia at the land theater in Europe ... And we will watch how they sail across the ocean and their AUGs are approaching our shores: laughing laughing laughing go. God forgive me ... Yes, let them jerk ... In any case, they will turn into an economic midget, and they will remember the hegemon!
    And to fight with China at sea and in the air? Here in general - they, apparently, remembered the rebellion of the boxers?
    How are the Marines frolic laughing

    YES. There are many degenerals in America who rave about successes in the war with Russia.
    Obviously, Korea and Vietnam became forgotten.

    You cannot reach Russia bypassing the Atlantic Ocean, which means that naval battles cannot be avoided. --- And why do we need the Atlantic Ocean! We will approach the USA from the east side across the Pacific Ocean! fool Warriors! Here we are closer tongue

      Because, as children close their eyes with their hands, they think that no one sees them. They, the Americans (and we have plenty of them, also think that God sees them only when they put a candle in the church ,,,

    The strategies that can be successful in US wars with Russia and China are very different from each other, and require large resource costssaid Selva

    I completely agree and support the general ... it’s time to shake the Fed’s owners, they won’t get away from them, they will print as much as the general says ... or they will lie down with their machine tool. laughing

    Yes, if you take only China, then if the people of China stand at the same time back to the USA and excuse me, they will turn toward the USA, sweep away everything in its path with a wave!

    There will be no sea battles. Everything in the ports will be burned in place. Those remaining and hiding in the open ocean will hang out there until their reserves are exhausted. Because there will be nowhere to moor. The surviving population will act in accordance with the instructions set forth by Hollywood in peacetime before the war - to rob the rest and hide in the cellars.
    Mexican neighbors will guard their territory, protecting for their part the walls built by Trump and the company.

      So this is the real meaning of the wall. Bravo
