According to Israeli military-political expert Jacob Kedmi, the current strategic position of the United States weakens before our eyes. In the Middle East, Russians are beating terrorists; in Europe, the Iskander-M operational tactical complexes are deployed. In the east, China is gaining military power, not allowing to unleash a war against North Korea. The African continent is also coming under Chinese control.
In order for a little "stay afloat", the Americans will have to make enormous financial efforts, otherwise there can be no talk of parity with Russia, and with China in the future.
