Sohu: Russia is the only country that dares militarily confront the United States


The material in the Chinese media is devoted to the alignment of military forces in the modern world. One of the authors of the military-thematic section of Sohu writes about the prevailing opinion that at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States of America remained the only great power in the world. Moreover, the author is ready to argue with such a judgment.


From the material:

After the collapse of the USSR, it is believed that the world turned into a unipolar one. The United States turned out to be this single pole. But if this is so, then how bad was the American policy in terms of its own interests, which eventually allowed the emergence of new poles of power.

The author notes that in fact, in the eyes of Washington, Russia regained power again, gaining strength in the power plan. It is reminded that today Russia is already dictating to the United States its conditions in certain regions of the world, including the Middle East.

From the article:

In the current situation, Russia is the only country that dares militarily confront the United States. The first thing you need to know is that even if the United States is again at the peak of prosperity, they definitely will not dare to fight against Russia, because the latter is one of the largest nuclear powers in the world.

The author, apparently, forgets that the USSR was a nuclear superpower at one time, which, unfortunately, did not prevent the United States from contemplating the collapse of the Soviet Union. And therefore, the presence of nuclear weapons today hardly worth calling a panacea.

One of the commentators, agreeing with the author of Sohu, writes that China should learn a lot from Russia in terms of confronting the United States.

          If nuclear fuss is started, then everyone will scoop up. And China, with its population density and industrial production, will get the most. They have something to lose. China may not even get involved, but the overseas “humanists”, in which case, they’ll cripple the heavenly, just like everyone else, they have enough missiles. To sit back "on a branch" will not work.

          The problem of the monkey is that, according to a centuries-old habit, it measures its local fauna: tigers there, mantises, etc.
          The bear is now in conflict on the one hand and the national team: elephant + donkey (USA) and all kinds of poodles and European hyenas, on the other. And if the whole riffraff can not climb trees, then the elephant and the bear solve this problem at a time.
          And yes, a tree (Earth), albeit a large branchy one, but one. The cunning monkey will not jump to another.

        A wise monkey will remain on a branch. Because one of the two tigers will come out victorious and will not give the monkey a chance.

      The U.S. Army has also shrunk dramatically since the Cold War. We can ensure strategic parity plus or minus.
      The US State Department previously released information on the implementation of the Russian-American START-3 agreement on the reduction of strategic offensive weapons, from which it follows that the parties comply with their "ceiling" obligations - 1550 deployed nuclear warheads and 700 carriers. The United States has 1376 nuclear weapons and 668 carriers, Russia - 1426 and 513, respectively.

        We only save one thing now, the inevitability of a destructive retaliatory strike against ANY enemy. This is not a position, this is a temporary situation ....

          If, for example, we strike a TNW at Turkish military facilities (in the event of a war with the latter), isn’t the USA taking the same measures against us? I personally do not believe it. Therefore, nuclear weapons (especially nuclear weapons) are not only a guarantee of a retaliatory strike. This is an offensive weapon.

            Difficult question. Assuming that a country with vigorous arguments, someone from the minor league will climb, it’s in no way ... except in an crowd ??? And so, it was officially announced that Russia reserves the right to respond to the aggressor by any means available in its arsenal to save the country! It was ... it will not save from yapping and other virtual arrivals, but in real life no one dares to check!

              to save the country!

              And where is this line when the country is in danger? The rout of the "ordinary" parts of the RF Armed Forces? For example, the defeat of our group in Syria is a threat to the country? In my opinion, yes - is. Absolutely not the market behavior of the same Saudi, trying to bring down our economy, is a direct threat, and if Gerasimov, for example, appeared on TV with a warning in one hour to level the Saudi oil industry with sand, it would be fun on the exchanges. For us.
              The Russian Federation - in fact, has one important and powerful argument for protecting its security (including economic) and it is time to uncover it, let it take a look at the hill and draw conclusions.

                By what was said, the events in Syria do not really fall under the reasons that determine the possibility of applying sound arguments ...
                All the same, it is necessary to look for justification precisely in statements written in officials and that is not a fact that it will turn out to be understood, to understand what and how can happen.

          There is no logic there, one continuous bile and malice towards the USSR.
          I noticed that people who consider themselves to be “believers” are extremely intolerant towards those who do not share their views on religion.
          Everybody is told about the commandments, but it’s not their fate to look at themselves, because “love your neighbor” is clearly not about them. The same goes for the attendants at the church, who are selling candles and crosses there. Try to go to church and don’t buy a candle, you’ll get so much bile and negativity, no gypsies were standing nearby.

                I saw and wrote the answer. They are funny in their blind hatred of the USSR.
                Everything was in the Union - both good and bad. For me, it was so much more good.
                At the same time, what else I want to add. We do not call "to burn with a hot iron" ... unlike the ardent haters of the USSR. Apparently they have sinned a lot there and now, for their malice, they want to drown what they are ashamed of.

        Thank you, but my post did not contain a question. The USSR, with all my nostalgia for that country, was not viable and unable to withstand the United States. Here, the status of a nuclear superpower does not solve the issue 100%. Here we hear a lot about the American missile defense system in Europe? We don’t hear anything, because it was multiplied by 0. This was not achieved in the Soviet Union, but in Russia, although not without the help of the USSR

            De jure, this is a missile defense system, and de facto this is an advanced area of ​​attack weapons. Because as a missile defense it is very, very so-so. Both in quality and quantity. But as a base for the blow of the first wave, it’s quite imagined.
            Because universal containers with missiles are easily and quickly interchangeable. Yes, and flashing target designation tools (radars in use) even faster. This is if it is required at all. But it was not laid in the first place and was simply not involved.

    Extremely controversial statement. Warlords, alas, always develop tactics of past wars. In the age of nuclear weapons and globalism, in the broad sense of the word, war, in the classical sense of the word, with a front and a rear, is a thing of the past. Most likely, all that we are witnessing at the present time is WAR. NEW WORLD.

      Yeah, this is while the war is not declared, by the wrong hands and in the territory of third countries. As soon as everything touches the main national territories and ceases to be lightning fast, everyone will immediately remember the classical front, the rear and other attributes of total war.
      Even with the complete inequality of forces in the Iraq war and the unwillingness of the Iraqi army to fight stubbornly (another question, for what reasons), there was both the front and the rear. No streak. That is, a really serious war cannot do without it. , India and Pakistan also somehow rely on guerrilla warfare and mobile groups do not really rely on regular clashes. Yes, and Israel with others without it.

      About military potential. The newspaper VPK comparison of the number of military aircraft of the USA and the Russian Federation Russia is inferior significantly. If you add NATO aviation to US aviation, it’s not so much fun.
      Crimea is of course ours, but Kharkov surrendered. How long can I fly or get from Kharkov?
      Finally, they are very proud of how much military equipment is sold abroad. Although it should be proud of how much equipment enters the native army.

        Comparison of the number of military aircraft of the USA and the Russian Federation Russia is inferior significantly.

        US aviation is degrading and shrinking. Americans will be cutting back on many more.
        The situation with the fleet of American bombers is currently in decline, said former deputy chief of staff of the US Air Force, General John Michael Law.
        In the budget request of the US Air Force for fiscal year 2021, a third of the B-1 fleet is planned to be withdrawn from the air force and written off.
        Modernization to increase the survivability of the strategic B-2 Spirit bombers has been canceled, and the new B-21 Raider, until ten years later, can make a significant contribution to increasing the combat and operational capabilities of US bomber aircraft, Defense News writes.


        Of the 140 strategic bombers remaining in service, only 20 B-2 Spirit, made using stealth technologies, have the ability to penetrate airspace, where modern air defense systems dominate, to strike at critical targets.

        https://m.gazeta.ru/army/2020/03/14/13004233.shtml

        If you add NATO aviation to US aviation, it’s not so much fun.

        And if we add the aviation of China and India to the Russian aviation? You ask where does the aviation of China and India, and I will ask you here the aviation of NATO countries, if in 2018, the Americans ate the United Kingdom and France for the strike of the Kyrgyz Republic, the rest "allies" of the Americans threw. So you can add anything to anything, but all this is far from reality.

    It’s not clear what it means to “oppose”. We all understand that only and exclusively the Soviet nuclear triad protects Russia from a direct attack. NATO is not afraid of the rest, and, alas, nothing shines much in the non-nuclear military conflict against the West. Well, of course, we will fight for some time, all that, but the result will ultimately be unambiguous. Figuratively speaking, there are significantly more aircraft carriers and Tomahawks. Therefore, instead of billions of developments of all kinds of Armats, which are doubtful from a practical point of view (they will not be useful in the global war with NATO, and the T-72 will crush all others), it is necessary to improve and modernize the nuclear shield. Who and not to say, this is the only guarantee that cools any aggressor from the desire to resolve the issue with Russia by military means. IMHO, all of course.

    If the confrontation is considered exclusively from a military point of view, then only the Russian Federation can render a full-scale rebuff to the armed aggression of the evil empire, but there will be no winner in such a confrontation. In any case, the large capital of the evil empire will suffer unacceptable losses, which completely excludes such a scenario. Therefore, subversion and propaganda, blackmail, threats, economic sanctions, virtual sabotage against strategic sectors of the economy, such as an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, come to the fore in the war of the empire of evil against its opponents.
    In the current situation, Russia can confront the evil empire, but it’s not a fact that this will be decided, because it professes a policy of non-resistance to evil by violence both in terms of direct insults to the head of state and regarding the rattling of arms of NATO, the rhetoric of Ukrainian Nazis, the genocide of Russian-speaking people in the EU, provocations of the evil empire against the property of the Russian Federation and its citizens around the world.
    No other state in the world allows anyone to treat themselves like that and the Russian Federation should learn diplomacy from Iran or the tiny DPRK with a population of about 20 million people. each time adequately responding to all the threats and provocations of the evil empire and its vassals.
