Pentagon requires additional funds to confront Russia and China

The Pentagon intends to increase its military capabilities in the Indo-Pacific region in order to confront Russia and China. To this end, the US military requested the Congress of the United States to allocate an additional $ 20 billion to funds already budgeted. About this writes Breaking Defense with reference to the text of the message.


According to the military, the United States is losing its leading position in the Indo-Pacific region, while Russia and China continue to build up their military capabilities, which in the future will lead to the infringement of the interests of the United States in this region.

The absence of an effective and convincing deterrent in the region will prompt China and Russia to take actions that will infringe on US interests

- The Pentagon message says to Congress.

According to the military’s plans, in addition to the already pledged sums, it is necessary to allocate another 2021 billion dollars in 1,6, and further 18,5 billion dollars for 2022 - 2026 financial years.

According to the US Department of Defense, the allocated funds will be used to purchase new radars, cruise missiles, deploy additional troops, create new intelligence gathering centers, and also conduct more maneuvers with the allies.

        Pentagon coronavirus - not a hindrance! How much money the Pentagon asks for, so much the US Federal Reserve $$$ and prints! There will be no failure.
        Not the United States, after all, they buy $$$ from the countries of the world, but on the contrary, the whole world buys American dollars from the United States for its national currency, filled with material content.

        No, there are ventilators ... with vertical take-off. In general, they would have surprised me by saying that we don’t need so much ... But requirements - more money - this is already familiar ... laughing

          When Congress asks its own people (sometimes it happens), where is Zin’s money ???
          I always remember the "space pen and latrine"! How much spent and the rest like that.
          It is clear that the military in all countries is approximately the same, but against the global background, the Pentagon is an undoubted leader.

              It is hard to believe that those who were supposed to do not understand that the spread of any infection is limited by the speed of delivery of the infected person from point A to point B by the same commercial aircraft !!!

                Well, they could not imagine that this could fall on them.
                Remember September 11th. They were shocked that in their country, terrorism would come overseas.
                They thought that they were safely hiding behind a puddle, and here it was on you.
                The shock was not from how many people died. The shock was that terror turned out to be possible and that they were not safe from this

                  After September 11, they took up security on their territory well, and now their attacks are not from international groups, but only from their crazy people. Moreover, the best defense against terrorism is the active actions of intelligence and special services in advance, in other countries, which they show.

      Here I still think the fact is that now their AUGs no longer pose such a danger as before .. A couple of "Daggers" are hypersonic and there is no aircraft carrier .. These are not my words, but Y. Kedmi ..
      If I’m not mistaken, “Daggers” hit the target not horizontally, but from a height, vertically with great speed .. So “Saw the ShUR, saw”)))

      Not only. Trump wanted the other day ... the moon. He spat on an international agreement on Earth’s satellite and actually declared it a zone of American resource interests (which does not exclude the desires of profits and "primacy" in the world).

    Well, in the Pacific, it’s still understandable, but in the Indian, why should Russia resist?
    What kind of forces and means do we have there?
    And though - paper will endure everything! Print, brothers.

    will encourage China and Russia to take action that will infringe US interests
    By and large, it is high time not to infringe on your actions, but to nip you, as a country toxic to the rest of the world.
    ... deployment of additional troops ...
    With the calculation for placement on the moon? On Earth, wherever you poke around, you’ll always fall into the American.
