In the USA: it is foolish not to include in the missile defense system counter threats from China and Russia

33
In the American media, it is reported that next week the Pentagon will publish a review of the US missile defense system, which should have been submitted about a year ago. The delay in publication is due to the fact that in the States there is a problem with the logistics and the purpose of the missile defense elements created.


In the USA: it is foolish not to include in the missile defense system counter threats from China and Russia


Портал Defense News writes that military experts criticize an approach in which the designation of missile defense systems in Washington is described exclusively as “against Iran and North Korea”. In particular, the arguments of the analyst of the Center for Strategic and International Studies of Thomas Karaco. He says that it is foolish not to have a plan to protect American objects and objects of US allies from China and Russia. According to Karako, the statements of Donald Trump that the missile defense system implies protection against North Korean and Iranian missiles and does not threaten strategic stability with respect to the PRC and the Russian Federation are "strange in the modern world."

Karako uses metaphors and allegories:
For so many decades, we acted like Samson, dividing Russia and China on the one hand and missile defense on the other, declaring that they were not connected in any way. But we need to protect ourselves from the Russian and Chinese rocket weapons.


They are proposing to add to the missile defense program items on “protection from Russia and China” and other representatives of American professional circles.

However, what attracts special attention is in the USA and those who call themselves attempts to contain Russia and China through missile defense systems are stupid. This opinion is shared by Laura Grego from the United States Union of Scientists. According to her, to organize an effective missile defense system for China and Russia is to spend huge amounts of money with an unpredictable result.

Laura Grego:
Attempting to organize strategic containment of China and Russia with the help of missile defense, of course, is a foolish errand and leads us further away from reducing nuclear weapons. I hope that clever heads will win.


Representing the Arms Control Association, Kingston Rafe stated that it is necessary to introduce distinctions in missile defense systems — into regional and global systems. He suggested that Congress should “attend to” the creation of hypersonic weapons in the Russian Federation and China and include ideas on countering such weapons in the strategy for the development of missile defense.

Recall that several years ago in Russia, they spoke about the fact that the US missile defense system in Europe is an element that undermines the strategic balance and carries a security threat to the Russian Federation.

    s missile defense.

    Yeah they built they built and finally they built.
    Only now it will not save Russia from a retaliation strike.
    On February 2, the US ultimatum expires under the RMiSD agreement and it will be necessary to carefully monitor what the United States will do.
    In general, history moves in a spiral.

          This, in general, is a normal American foreign policy practice - stick your nose where they are not asked to do it, attract as many people as possible ("I was not the only one who tumbled in the field!"), Politely leave to change my diaper, nobly leaving the rest to rake heap piled up by me.

                Well, in general, you are right. And it happened as a result of selection. And everything is documented. We open the Book of Books and see how a certain Lord led his chosen people with the aim of educating and strengthening the most base human traits, defined by the word bastard. When the results of selection became stable, the "seeds" were planted in the rest of the world and entrenched in the Anglo-Saxon branch of humanity.

    Russian and Chinese research in the development of hypersonic weapons significantly outstripped the United States, writes a military expert of the publication, complaining that the United States does not have similar combat systems. Maneuvering warheads, many times exceeding the speed of sound, make American missile defense useless, emphasizes in the article The Hill (USA) https://news.rambler.ru/weapon/41545798/?utm_content=rnews&utm_medium=read_more&utm_source=copylink
    The United States, through its actions in Europe, spurred Russia and China to accelerate work in creating new weapons. And so accelerate that the states were dangerously behind. To date, they have practically nothing to oppose to hypersonic weapons. Now the striped senate is beating in a paddle, and is thinking how to plug this gap. A new round of the arms race begins, with which I congratulate everyone.

      Romania is in the biggest bag of alabaster, having built a missile defense base against Iran and North Korea. In Iran, about 15 people know about the existence of Romania, and none of them was going to attack the Romanians. In North Korea, the figures are disappearingly small. And now this whole Balkan country is under our sight, just in case (taking into account its area), and builders (organizers) have nothing to do with it.

        This is the policy of the United States, ensuring its security, to substitute the so-called. allies who can slobber a few bucks, promising protection and help (which, of course, they will not wait), in short, bought for beads. But against this background, Poland looks all the more ridiculous, as it crawls out of its skin with a bang in order to get into the sight. Recently, there has been some progress in the FRG, which are beginning to understand what the "friendship" with Washington threatens them. It is not in vain that they are making such efforts to prevent America from breaking the INF Treaty.

      Normal experts are well enough for themselves ... And they are telling the truth, realistically assessing the capabilities of the Yankees-PRO: the system created by them is able to protect only from single launches of the Korean or Iran ballistic junk!
      Such a system will not save from the strike of the rocket armies of Russia, since it is useless. But for some reason, the Western press does not advertise the second half of expert conclusions! Probably, in order not to shock the public and contribute to the Yankees-MIC and go on to eat the military budget of the States and K * further three times.

    Recall that several years ago in Russia, they spoke about the fact that the US missile defense system in Europe is an element that undermines the strategic balance and carries a security threat to the Russian Federation.

    There is a small state in the Middle East - Israel. It is not very worried about what they will say from the outside, and it’s mercilessly delivering bombing missiles at facilities that could threaten the sovereignty of the country and the security of its citizens. belay
    Is it time for the Russian Federation to take care of its own security and warn especially zealous that it would be fraught to place foreign military facilities and equipment near the country's borders. And, if the gentlemen continue to do the same (build up, improve and develop), launch a preventive missile strike at the WTO against the objects of concern. And not everywhere, but by singling out especially presumptuous. How they do it in a fight - the leaders of the coden are put out of action ...
    It is assumed that such measures of influence will have a proper impact on the formation of foreign policy directions in a number of Novonatov's East European countries. There is another option - the deployment of strike missile systems (with prior notification) in the immediate vicinity of the United States, for example, in Mexico (or elsewhere). So many billions are being withdrawn from Russia that even rabid fans of the secular London elite will throw themselves into the "holy cause" ...

    In words. Although even a child understands that missile defense systems were created against Russia and China. From how to present the goal of creating these systems, their specific and real tasks have not changed. They would have honestly said that today the situation (Russia's new weapon) creates certain difficulties in counteracting. And then from empty to empty.

    ABM against Russia is when scumbags from Ukraine appear, they are already arriving in Russia in large quantities, they even caught a few at Navalny rallies, one even managed to fight Zhirinovsky. As the experience of Libya, Iraq, Yugoslavia shows, air defense suffers more from these scumbags from 5 columns than from missiles. 300 Spartans, who in social networks, mowed under the Russians and chose Trump, did more damage than our hypersonic missiles, the United States still shakes. Such a US bombing has not happened since the Vietnam War. But the Russian selling elite was frightened of this victory, and I’m sure to even fart fear in the direction of the United States, and the United States took measures. And how, with the help of 5 columns, they blew up the USSR, promising that everyone will be millionaires, this is generally a song ....

    Of course, it is necessary to continue cutting the huge US military budget, the main directions of cutting: stealth technology, hypersonic weapons and missile defense systems. Many directions in modern realities are clearly ineffective: it is a stake on aircraft carriers, stealth technology and missile defense systems, but the cut will continue in these directions, so the wind is in their backs.
