Cedmie: the US does not need to have the illusion of victory over Russia in the arms race

The US official withdrawal from the Russian-American Treaty on the Elimination of Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles (INF Treaty), in effect, means the announcement of the start of a new arms race. The White House apparatus confidently declares that they are not afraid of an arms race, since President Donald Trump has good relations with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.




Many experts believe that such statements should be taken seriously. This may mean that the United States is confident that they will quickly eliminate the backlog on new types of weapons, including the development of hypersonic weapons. They are convinced that their economy is so dominant that the Russian economy will not be able to withstand a new arms race by definition. It is from here that the Americans behave, and it is from here that they are absolutely convinced that nothing threatens their dominant position.

The guest of the talk show Evening with Vladimir Solovyov, Yakov Kedmi, an Israeli expert, believes that the Americans should not have illusions about the victory over Russia in the arms race. He will tell you what the main goals the United States pursues with its exit from the INF Treaty, and why they are not ready to confront Russia.

      Actually, Yakov Kedmi always speaks interestingly and to the point! And most importantly - he always very competently assesses the international situation.

      So there is something to listen from and something to listen to.

        But lying and slandering on Solovyov in this case, Vasily, is not necessary! Namely.

        Solovyov in this video didn’t say anything like that - "our economy is ahead of the rest" - did not say at all.
        You have to be objective and not give your negative wishful thinking.

    Everything is simple. Our president said - what the hell is a world for us in which there is no place for Russia? I hope the European countries are in second place, where they will send "parcels" vigorous. In the first place are decision-making centers. This is in case of conflict of course.

    China cannot fight us for many reasons.
    Firstly, in order to get to resources and energy resources, one needs to move very far. But this will not solve the problems, because the delivery of resources to the PRC is complex and not quick. Throws of huge armies will burn up all fuel reserves, but it is already lacking. Roads capable of withstanding the march of armored vehicles to the arctic ocean - no. And when winter comes, a bunch of problems with security will come up.
    Secondly, the Indians will attack the Chinese from the rear, simply because they understand that China will not be able to cope with the war on two fronts, which means that it is necessary to squeeze the zemstvos. The Vietnamese will probably attack in the same way, because they all dislike each other there, despite socialism and so on.
    Thirdly, the Russian army is the strongest on the planet in defense, no one has defeated us, no one will win, own land will help.
    And, fourth, and most importantly - we can simply burn them in nuclear fire, and while their mines with missiles are located under the cover of our air defense, we won’t even get an answer. And even if we get it, they won’t reach the European part, respectively, most of the population will survive in the event of an exchange of missile attacks. But their mega agglomerations will simply become mass graves.

    But all this is not so important, much more important is that the PRC leadership understands all this perfectly, and therefore there will be no major attacks from China. Yes, they don’t even need this, it is beneficial to be friends with us, we supply them with the resources and brains, we will help you from threats from across the ocean, if that.

    But economically, they can absorb us and turn us into a raw materials appendage, but here it is hoped that our steering will come up with something

      One cannot ignore the development of new technologies. Perhaps tomorrow they will develop an effective laser defense, which can intercept any missiles. And here we cannot answer China.
      I don’t know about you, but I’m not afraid of war with America, their gut is thin. With China, I'm afraid these may, and have already done.

    To some extent, the leadership of Russia should learn from Trump. Namely, to announce the threat of the destruction of the existing contractual state, the announcement of their claims in an ultimatum form, and then to bargain with counterparties on new terms favorable to their side. Why, for example, not to announce that due to changes in the geopolitical situation over the past two decades (the termination of the INF Treaty and the possible deployment of this segment of strategic weapons around Russia, the threat of strategic offensive arms-2, NATO's proximity to the borders, voluntarism in US politics and their allies) Russia will change, according to the realities of today, the Military Doctrine, refuses to use nuclear weapons first and allows the possibility of a preemptive strike on strategic objects of a potential enemy, leaves Do OVOR the non-proliferation of atomic (nuclear) weapons, as well as missile technology. If only these possible steps of the Russian side are voiced, we can understand what noise will rise on that side. Of course, the latter will scare them the most. After all, Russia is a recognized leader in nuclear and missile technologies. Both military and civilian. And that “market" which threatens to form in the world after this, namely the market of military nuclear and missile technologies, can derail the entire security system not only of our potential adversaries, but also of the whole world. Well, the arms race that Russia is facing will no longer strike Russia, but these countries. There are too many who want to enter the atomic and missile club. And they will certainly find money for the purchase of such technologies. And not these unsecured green papers, but for real gold or other materials.
