American general: the world has become multipolar, but we must strive for supremacy

Over the past decades, the world has undergone a transformation and has become multipolar, but Washington should in any case strive for military superiority over other countries, reports TASS statement by the head of the Strategic Command (STRATCOM) US Armed Forces John Heiten.


American general: the world has become multipolar, but we must strive for supremacy


We must look at (nuclear) containment through a new lens. We are no longer determined by the bipolar world of the two superpowers, which simplified our approach to containment. The call of the United States throws many opponents, expanding their potentials. In order to maintain military superiority in this multipolar world, we must think, maneuver, make partners and innovate better than our opponents,
said khaiten.

The United States "remains committed to (maintaining) strategic stability with China and Russia," the tone assured.

At the same time, he noted that "Russia continues to throw challenges that require a steady and decisive concentration of attention."

The steps that Moscow is taking in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region are designed to help it achieve the goal of seeing Russia as a global military and diplomatic power,
considers the general.

In his opinion, the new weapons, about which Vladimir Putin spoke in his message to the Federal Assembly, "are aimed at intimidating the United States and ... allies and forcing them to act as Moscow would like".

Touching on the subject of military construction in China, Heiten said that Beijing "aggressively modernizes ... mobile nuclear forces and modifies long-range ballistic missiles so that they can be fitted with separating warheads of individual guidance." Along with this, China "is rapidly developing and testing hypersonic armaments," he added.

The general also stated that the creation of a low-power nuclear warhead in the United States for submarine-launched ballistic missiles and a new sea-based nuclear cruise missile is necessary, including due to the alleged “imbalance between the United States and Russia concerning the tactical nuclear delivery vehicles weapons».

Russia now has "at least 11 different platforms for delivering low-yield nuclear warheads, and the US has only one, and this is an airplane," said STRATCOM.

          This kind of calls for striving, focusing attention, and not immediately bombing! Does it cast a shadow on the fence or is it scary?
          They talk too much there! Who to believe? What to believe? How to deal with such, if their head does not know where the tail is waving?
          It is difficult of course, but there is no other!

          They modernized according to their gangster concepts, threw off gentlemen's husk and climb now and everywhere in everything, with their raking paws.

            the problem is that they never hit these paws properly, hence the complex of "exclusivity" until they get the snout properly (they can’t stop firing at schools, but they all climb into hegemons.)

              So after all, they are sitting in a large puddle, and their history has only about three hundred years. There was no time to receive in the face! Although, in Vietnam they managed to get it!

      He did not see, but rather heard the familiar language that Putin spoke at the Assembly. At the same time, back in 2007, Putin indicated that the world had ceased to be unipolar, and only 11 had reached the mattress generals after 80 years ... that is, level XNUMX Estonians.

        Fear is also an incentive, why?
        They have a lot of money, very much, and technical change is somehow not very visible, at least not everywhere!
        They will try to do it, and there will be even more PR, advertising, boasting! All the most significant, effective is usually done quietly, in secret! In short, we'll see!

    What else can a warrior say?

      The third was China. But the general is not told to announce this to the general politician. And politicians are traders. But the Earth is round and one at all.

    Well, what can I say? "Humpback grave correct", because American superiority serves only one purpose - to dictate its terms.

    that is, it’s so simple to come and bomb anyone who wants to, when the United States wants it, it won’t work out ... but how it all started "well": Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria,

    The world is so far unipolar, many "international" organizations and the media are under the complete control of liberal globalists. The United States, with its state apparatus and army, simply serves globalists. So the general is still ahead of the curve.

    The Americans, of course, gave us a head start, having overslept the rearmament of Russia. But I would not relax, understanding what the collective West has scientific, production and financial opportunities. If they wake up, they can catch up in three steps.

    Just an excuse for why the Pentagon is not succeeding in complete outrage, as before. Under the unipolar world, whoever could, he began to grow "shell", "spikes", "teeth" and "claws" to protect his sovereignty from democratizers. Who couldn’t, he climbed his knees to the USA and took the oath of allegiance, having received NATO membership. But on the example of Turkey, it became clear that this is not a guarantee of protection against mattress color revolutions. All the blame for the increment of nuclear countries in the world and nuclear weapons lies entirely with the United States - they were the first to use and spread nuclear weapons for their economic dominance

    I'm losing weight with them. What are they, according to the ad recruited? Is it possible to "peacefully modernize nuclear weapons"?

    It would be necessary to print not 700 lard of the military budget, but at least a couple of trillion a year. Otherwise, gentlemen partners, parity cannot be restored. And for this it would be necessary to rob ... who is pink and bold there? Ah, old Europe! Good for you!
