The Pentagon is alarmed by the Russian "supersonic threats"

Washington is alarmed by the statements of Moscow on new types of strategic weapons, reports RIA News Statement by Pentagon Director General Samuel Greaves of the Missile Defense Agency (PRO).

As for the statements of Mr. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, they are disturbing, they force us to pay increased attention to the (combat) capabilities that we need in order to defend ourselves from what he said,
- supersonic threats, Greaves said at the Senate hearing, responding to the relevant question from lawmakers.

Recall about the newest Russian weapons Vladimir Putin spoke on March 1, delivering a message to the Federal Assembly. The President said that the Avangard system was created in Russia, which is capable of "flying in dense atmospheric layers to an intercontinental range at a hypersonic speed exceeding the Mach number by more than 20 times." He also reported on new samples of laser weapons, an underwater nuclear drone, a new ICBM.

The President explained the development of such weapons by the need to counter the US missile defense system, the deployment of which near the Russian borders threatens to disrupt the strategic balance.

        Don’t say “gop!” Taking on faith, said the Anglo-Saxon, is deadly. A coalition led by the Yankees can make a trick at any unexpected moment. You can’t relax.

          I already wrote that this was the calculation: to alarms, to force spending money on research, to create prerequisites for increasing them, without that ruining the military budget ...
          Also, a kind of economic blow! “Supersonic” threats - sanctions, with long-term, long-term prospects ...

          Trump is a politician, so his chatter is worth little, especially since he changes his shoes on the go 3 times per hour .....
          They got a little scared of Korea, are they really going to trample us ....?!
          At the helm, it seems, it’s not Gorbachev the bald, who lost everything without a game !!!

            Trump politician,

            Trump, first of all since his youth, is a showman. Hence all his explosive statements addressed to Un, and to Assad, and to China, and to our address. (He parted, and sprinkled: "the triangle will be drunk, whether it is a parallelepiped, whether it is a circle, a louse is ed.") Already today it was announced on Twitter that he did not set a deadline for the attack on Syria, that he wanted to be friends with Russia, that he needed to get rid of the sanctions policy .... What was it if not a show? Zakharova pricked about this:

        And recently, Trump so ardently threatened the DPRK with “launches”!

        The idea of ​​earning between tweets is very interesting. I believe that it is so.
        Trump is a businessman. And he probably perceives the presidency as an opportunity to earn, too, and perhaps above all else. Age, habits, it’s too late to change, and it’s useless - it will damage your health.

      We remove the sanctions, otherwise we will repeat the situation - the methodology has already been developed and practiced.

      In his next tweet, he wrote: “Russia needs our help in the economy. Stop the arms race? ” Trump seems to be consulting with aliens.

      In the Pentalgon there are real concrete specialists who really work and perceive the words of politicians with grins, and talking heads and talking heads.
      Trump is also the talking head of those corporations that made him president.
      Fees to the public is one thing, but what is happening under the carpet? !!!
      In Aleppo and Ghout, Western specialists are really captured and pokotsat.

    How much can you smack this chukhniki ..? Well, he said and said --- who will refuse the extra money, especially when they themselves are floating in their hands thanks to these "vanguards"?
    We also have a security committee in the Duma and probably some kind of open hearings are being held, so can we start broadcasting the news from there and discuss the main thing?

    So the incumbent Pentagon general realized, unlike the Ukrainians and "some" on the VO site, that Putin showed more than just "cartoons."

    It's good to be alarmed. No wonder the president warned them in advance about this. Now, American aircraft carrier strike groups in the Mediterranean Sea are under the sights of Daggers.

    Mattresses are in a hurry ... after 2-3 years, when adopting the listed GDP complexes, the US military superiority will evaporate. That is why all this fuss with a blow to Syria and, accordingly, a confrontation with us. Moreover, there is another point - the mattresses are sleeping and they see the state of affairs in Syria being rewound, at the time before the appearance of our VKS. With a missile strike of mattresses, all this Igilov rabble is activated.
