In the USA, it is not against placing medium- and shorter-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific

The United States needs to deploy medium- and shorter-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region (APR), as this will "strengthen US security." This statement was made by the commander of the US Air Force in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, General Charles Brown.


When asked if he, as a military leader, sees the benefits of deploying US medium- and shorter-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region, Brown said that such a deployment would be useful for the United States, as it would significantly strengthen the country's security.

That, of course, would be helpful. (...) This changes the calculations regarding what is happening in the region, makes our opponents seriously think about it. Regardless of whether we finance several or many (such missiles)

- he said.

At the same time, the general was unable to answer the question of whether the United States is negotiating with its allies and partners in the Asia-Pacific region on the deployment of its missiles on their territory, saying that it does not know about such negotiations.

I can not answer. I was not involved in any discussions regarding the INF Treaty or the missile potential of this plan. These are political decisions. But I would probably know if we were moving this way

- he explained.

Previously, the Pentagon said that so far the United States has not taken any decisions on the production and deployment of intermediate and shorter-range missiles, especially outside of US territory.

In turn, the Russian Ministry of Defense said that if the Americans deploy missiles previously banned by the INF Treaty, they will respond in a mirror. Until that moment, Russia will not deploy missiles on its own.

        It’s just - General’s Private Opinion

        This is perfectly reasonable in terms of military strategy and tactics.
        Just even spherical in a vacuum!
        The simple question is - would it be beneficial for Russia to deploy its missiles in Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua?
        The answer is simple - from the point of view of strategy, definitely YES!
        Can we do this? NO!
        And the Americans CAN and do.
        And do not give a damn about our and Chinese opinion!
        Saliva !!!
        Can we counteract this? NO!
        And these missiles (ballistic, by the way, with flying time to Vladivostok of a few minutes) will cover our entire Far East, including Kamchatka.

          strategically, it is much more dangerous for China. there is such a population density in the south that any blow is a huge loss. in our case, everything is much simpler. any blow of global significance will not be for the country. the retaliation will not be affected at all.

              Let's call a spade a spade. Namely.

              In the tactical plan, according to the general, as part of achieving his strategic goals in relation to his geopolitical opponents, the USA is necessary in the Asia-Pacific region unleash your American precisely PROXY WAR at the very borders of your geopolitical opponents and FAR from the borders of the USA itself.
              The main thing for Washington is that the US Department of State not only convinces the leadership of its allies that it needs to be deployed with them, but also convinces foreigners of the opportunity to sacrifice their people and their territory in case of PROXY WAR.

              All this is done in order to draw China into the new INF Treaty ... Donya had already mentioned that he needed a triumvirate for INF, which should include Russia and China, in addition to the States. But about England and Storage, he somehow modestly kept silent .... Yankees! What to take from them ...

          I have to disappoint you .. if you so desire, you can put a good pig with RSiMD in the USA.
          Alaska USA is very vulnerable from our Far Eastern borders. What prevents us from using our Kuril Islands, the Arctic as a bridgehead ... you can find methods on Saprykin smile there would be a desire.

      The headline reflects the reality, otherwise why do the Americans test the BDSD? In order to place them in the Asia-Pacific region, otherwise China, with its many BDSDs, will have an advantage in this region over the USA and in the future will kick the latter out of the region. What surprises you so much? Everything is so clear .

          As if already complicated. The deployment of missile defense in the South Caucasus led to the curtailment of the business of South Korean companies in China and a drop in tourist flow from China to the South Caucasus. There, losses to the ten billion per year are approaching.
          The deployment of missiles will lead to the closure of the Chinese market for these countries. American does not replace this.

      Yes, there are a lot of such suicides, at least throughout Europe. If in Germany they still understand what this threatens and are trying to object, albeit weakly. But the Romanians with the Poles and the rest of the Balts, jump out of their cowards, from the strongest desire, to become targets. There are also Japan, South Korea, and you never know who else. Taiwan can foal, say "and they say, place it here, we will sleep more calmly." In general, idiocy is flourishing.

        To stay on the water does not mean to be able to swim.
        And what about modern nuclear submarines and torpedoes for them? Perhaps there is a wealth of successful practice for the "great monkey" in countering the submarine fleet? Maybe there is good practice in maneuvering and using aircraft carriers? Or large formations of warships? We have a proverb - "for one beaten, two are not beaten". So let's see how it will be in the sea-okyane against the opposition of the NATO fleet to those who like to "sit on the shore, waiting ...".

        This is just great. When part of the strategic forces is diverted to completely useless actions, the Chinese are also occupied by the Americans.
        By the way, how do the Chinese make so many nuclear weapons for missiles in every garden? Attention to the question: why did the Chinese call the Americans (Westinhouse) and the French (Arevu) and ours (RosAtom Group) for the construction of nuclear power plants? If they build and rotate centrifuges to produce uranium like hot cakes, nuclear reactors?
        In big politics, 10 years is a very short time. But I suspect that this period is enough to see the death of the Mriies about great China. Let's wait?

    USA - handsome men bully

    The deployment of American RSD in the Asia-Pacific region will solve several problems for us at once:
    - reduce the likelihood or number of their deployment in Europe;
    - stresses not childishly in the PRC and DPRK;
    - will politically justify the reciprocal deployment of the Russian MRBM RS-26 "Rubezh" (analogue of the Soviet "Pioneer-3") at the Anadyr missile base ("Portal" facility) within reach of Los Angeles.

        And we, as promised, will place the RS-26 with a range of 5500 km only in Asia - in Western Siberia and Chukotka.

        The question is different - will the Russian Federation implement Ustinov's plan (canceled by Gorbachev) to deploy Speed-type MRBMs in the border regions with a flat firing trajectory and flight time, less time for reaching launch positions and prelaunch preparation of American IRBMs?

        "Multifunctionally" trained officers of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces have already traveled to Europe on tour to the locations of American IRBMs - as in the good old days of the USSR Special Forces bully

      Therefore, the RS-26 was curtailed, since this is not enough to deter the United States. It is not for nothing that Putin attaches great importance to placing the Zircon on submarines. The Zircon can be used as a medium-range missile from submarines. Or as an alternative to the Tu-160M ​​with new KR.
      Serial production of the upgraded strategic missile carriers Tu-160M ​​is deployed, in the coming years they will begin to enter the arsenal of the Russian Air Force. This was announced by the Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov


      The first built from scratch missile-bomber should be surrendered in 2021. In total, the Ministry of Defense was going to buy 50 of these machines.

    Amos will place their tsatskas in the amr, the Chinese and we will sharply make friends with Cuba and there we will balance and with the Chinese fleet and the dependency of amines on China, amas will be able to do something for them, I think.
