Admiral of the U.S. Navy in the defense plan advised to take an example from the Russian


The American admiral cited the Russian Federation as an example. The case is not ordinary.


We are talking about the US Navy Admiral James Foggo, who spoke about building an effective system of protection of maritime borders.
For reference: James Foggo - Commander of the U.S. Navy in Europe and Africa.

According to Foggo, which leads the publication Business Insider, if you need to protect your shores, then for this it is not necessary to have huge resources.

The American commander noted that if resources are limited, then we can take an example from the Russians.

James Foggo, referring to the allies of the United States:

Pay attention to what the Russians are doing. Use similar weapons: cruise anti-ship missiles, coastal radars, smart sea mines.

As a concrete example, the American admiral cited Russia's defense of the Crimea, where, in particular, advanced air defense systems, including the S-400 Triumph air defense system, are located.

These statements by James Foggo were made against the background of the statements of individual countries, US allies, about the lack of resources to ensure the protection of their borders at sea.

Previously, Pentagon officials said that Russia has built updated systems for protecting maritime borders in all directions: from the Black Sea to the Arctic.

      Much worse when the enemy does not have bright thoughts. Like Hitler’s example.
      At least professionals of this level, like this admiral, understand that Russia is a serious opponent. And this understanding will keep them from stupid things.

        There is an agreement on the prevention of incidents at sea with ships and aircraft above it, in my opinion as far back as 1972. This is guided by the Yankees and we. Therefore, minor misunderstandings-incidents can still be in the everyday practice of navigation ...
        But the "nonsense" at sea, with far-reaching consequences, the military can do only by order of politicians, or rather politicians, such as Bolton or finally rested McCain.

        The admiral understands this, but politicians make decisions. And in this regard (adequacy), recently, some problems have been traced by Western politicians. On the other hand, if the Americans were to defend only their own country, then they would have had enough money with a large excess. But no, you need to shove your huge army and navy around the world. So don't let them complain. For what, as they say, they fought, as they say, and expenses.

      I think it makes sense in your words. But I also think that those who make decisions understand perfectly well that no threat comes from Russia (and all the scarecrows are purely for propaganda). Hence, there is no desire to spend extra money against a fictional enemy.

      HE IS NOT THE FIRST TIME to issue warnings about an increase in the level of perfection of Russian weapons and tactics of the Russian Federation.
      T. E:
      -it is proposed to adopt the experience of Russia;
      -, the allies NEEDED to acquire (EXPLAINLY WHO) clever mines, anti-ship missiles and coastal radars that should operate in a complex;
      - the growth of the level of defense of the Russian Federation says ("voice-over", a hint) about the need. allocation of additional allocations.

      The fact is that this voice is crying in the wilderness. No one will hear this admiral. By the way, it’s not one of them who has such bright thoughts in his head, but there’s no sense in it.

      As a concrete example, the American admiral cited the defense of Crimea perfectly built by Russia

      Well, in the original, not only about the defense of Crimea, but about the defense of the entire Black Sea coast, Kaliningrad and Syria.
      As for the defense capabilities, as I say to allies and partners, if you are limited in the amount of resources available to you and want to protect your shores, think about what the Russians are doing with A2 / AD and look for similar systems, "Mr. Foggo said. He believes that such systems in conjunction with the s-300 and S-400 SAMS, coastal defense radar systems, and anti-ship cruise missiles protect Crimea well. The same systems, according to him, work on the black sea coast, in Kaliningrad and in Syria

      The admiral praises our S-300 and S-400 with might and main and calls on the Allies "look for similar systems for yourself"

        The fact of the matter is that the "like" ... like the Petriot ... Yeah.
        But when they buy the S-400 (Turkey, UAE), then immediately begins a tantrum that flows into sanctions and threats.
        It is good that the Sultan has iron Faberges, so he resisted. But the gentle custodians (under the socialist Francois Hollande) did not sell Mistral to us, although they took 4 billion euros ... Probably the band-ears are hoping for this, advising satellites to buy "similar systems".

          So his speech is designed for that. While the admiral pushes a speech from the rostrum, his subordinates cheerfully distribute to the audience in the hall the brochures of Petriot wink

    And what do we need to look at their cruisers that periodically go into the Black Sea, what is there to "show"?
    Crimea, Crimea .. whoever owns the Crimea, he owns the Black Sea ... Which was called Russian in the time of Byzantium.

    In Crimea, indeed, the air defense was well built up.

    Only there is one big minus! If the site’s commentators saw with their own eyes how the batteries are actually located, they would be discouraged.
    It is enough to separate the DRP in order to disable the C400 battery.
    The location is extremely paradoxical, but characteristic of the general ... relation to business.
    It is depressing.

    Here the American admiral did not so much urge to take an example from the Russians, as he tried to refute the excuses of the NATO countries who did not want to spend money on military needs.

    The general politely explained to the partners where they should go with their complaints, and also made it clear that in the event of which the United States did not hope for help. The obvious things, in general, are nothing new. There are no close smells of bright thoughts here.
