Pentagon: Russia prevents US dominance

Russians in the Middle East are hindering Americans, the head of the Central Command of the country's armed forces, Joseph Votel, said in his report, while complaining about Russian air defense.


Pentagon: Russia prevents US dominance


The growing number of Russian anti-aircraft missile systems in the region threatens our ability to dominate the airspace.
- he considers. According to him, it is necessary to fight with Russia for influence in the Middle East.

The document says that the Russian presence in Syria has made Moscow one of the main players in the region for a long time. The Kremlin also uses the Syrian conflict to test its weapons systems and does not take into account the damage from operations, as well as losses among the civilian population of the country, according to the Pentagon.

In addition, Votel expressed dissatisfaction with Russian influence in Central Asia, as a result of this, "the United States has less military capabilities", and it can also harm NATO's supply lines to Afghanistan.

            Well, they already used the opportunity to test the latest MANPADS on Russian planes.
            Now you can raise the screech "they kill peaceful alien fighters and help the bloodthirsty local army"

              I like their concern for the civilian population. According to ang. medits. Journal of Victims in Iraq until 2007 there were more than 600 thousand people among the civilian population. If you add to the present time and taking into account Syria, then this is a million. Given the refugees, this is already much more.
              Apparently, after Vietnam, the NATO so respect the Russian air defense system (USSR) that they are probably called the main threat to democracy. hi

      "the United States has fewer military capabilities,"
      This is the result of Russia's actions in Syria. So we are acting right, since the United States has less and less opportunity to wave a military club.

      Interfere RUSSIAN or RUSSIA ??

      There was no Russia in the Middle East .. who was stopping them?
      In Africa, the Chinese interfere.
      In Europe, again, Russia hinders
      In the Arctic, Russia interferes again
      In Latin America, Russia and China got there and again interfere
      In the Pacific zone., Recognized by Trump as the main zone of vital interests of the United States, China and Russia interfere again and again.
      And in America itself, everywhere they interfere from Russia. In the election,.. Just think -.... the President of the United States .. !!
      ..picked up an old American record ..

          Just like they always interfere with the Russians. Geopolitics is not going anywhere. Read Marx’s Capital - without new markets there will be no further growth. And it is easier to take new markets, not in competition, but as a monopolist. That’s what prevents each other from becoming monopolists in a single region

      The US political elite clearly consists of masochists alone. Neither can they satisfy their perverted fantasies without domination. Although the motivation is understandable, without hard dictatorship, no one will pay attention to either American green wrappers, and it is precisely transactions with American "securities" that bring the United States more than 80% of revenue.

      Have you heard Russia declare its desire to dominate? There is no need to ascribe to Russia goals that it does not have. Russia wants only one thing - to establish a fairer world order, stop imposing Western hegemony on the world (read American hegemony), stop interfering in the internal affairs of states under humanitarian pretexts and under the guise of democratic slogans, organizing coups, color revolutions, interventions and other things like that. Even in Syria, how many times have the West been offered to act together against ISIS, Nusra and other scum. Russia does not have a goal of quarreling and conflict with the West, and it never has been, all that is happening now is only Russia's reaction to the actions of the West, protection of our national interests.

      It hindered in Vietnam and not so bad hurt. And in Syria it turned out to be hindered, they themselves recognize as we see. Probably because this is another story and air defense. The era of Soviet technology ends.
