American press: "In the confrontation with Russia and China, we need to prepare for another war"

The United States is ready to confront Russia and China, the Pentagon has developed numerous plans to counter the enemy in the event of military conflicts. However, all the plans of the American military are aimed at conducting intense hostilities, and it is necessary to prepare for a completely different war. The American magazine Forbes writes about it.


Strategic planning of the Pentagon provides for various options for responding to the emergence of a threat of military conflicts from Russia or China, but all of them provide for the conduct of intense hostilities using aviation, ships or ground forces, the author writes. However, this approach is already outdated; America's enemies are preparing for a completely different type of war.

While the US Department of Defense is preparing plans to repel a military invasion by the Chinese army in Taiwan or the Russian military in the Baltics, strategies and systems are being developed in Beijing and Moscow to eliminate the advantage of the American army. Both Russia and China are trying to avoid the scenarios for which American troops are preparing.

According to the author's conviction, Russia and China are preparing for "wars of the future", where the main efforts are directed not at an attack on some territory, but at electronic or physical damage to information sources and means of communication, introducing chaos into managerial ties and logistics, etc. Thus, they combine information operations with the isolation of the enemy, avoiding actions that could be followed by a US response. The Russian operation in Crimea is cited as an example.

At the same time, the current US forces, designed to conduct large-scale hostilities, do not match such a conflict. Namely, this scenario can be imposed by China and Russia.

As a result, the author proposes to revise the Pentagon's plans and prepare not for large-scale hostilities, but for a "war of the future" in order to prevent a "new Crimea".

    Oh, the Americans are cunning. In fact, they expect that there will not be a full-fledged war. And they will continue to deliver democracy around the planet on their AUG.

            Gotland is an excellent location for the Balls, Iskanders, gas pumping stations and berths for the Caliber corvettes.
            With such a "gentleman's set," Gotland would become a bone in the throat of Northern Europe.

      The United States has become so insolent in permissiveness, in its shameless "right" to interfere in the affairs of other countries and dictate its will to the world community, that it has lost touch with reality. The reality is that more and more countries are becoming dissatisfied with Americanism and their horror stories about aggressive Russia and China.

      There will come a time when they can only "express concern"!

      In fact, that's what they do ...
      Just a formidable mask and power over other people's wallets so far cause caution among opponents and feigned fear. It makes no sense for now to openly enter into confrontation, for the United States is weakening, far-sighted competitors are playing for time.

      What did they do in Crimea or Hong Kong? Only sanctions - and this is "concern" ...
      Even Maduro resisted.

      Just like the Soviet Union provided peace to its neighbors. It is always worth keeping in mind the example of Germany: the FRG and the GDR. The West is controlled and supported by the United States, and the East is controlled and supported by the USSR. Mercedes, BMW, Porsche were produced in the West. East of Trabant and Wartburg. The West went on vacation to the Maldives, Bali, Kenya or the Cote d'Azur. East to Bulgaria, Crimea and Turkey. That says it all.

      The Baltic States are a bridgehead, there the forces are always ready at NATO and the logistics are thought out, if in the first days you do not throw them back into the sea, it will be sad. If it rolls, then they will attack through Belarus and Ukraine, it will be harder there.

    Such statements and confidence in the plans of action of the Russian Federation and China are the hallmarks of US strategists. This is the logic of constantly looking for threats to knock out the largest possible budget for yourself. And only then - traditional sawing, spraying. It seems that Taiwan is not China's main target, and, with the support of the United States, the Taiwanese authorities fear that they will be thrown at the most crucial moment. But, I believe that China through Taiwan simply keeps the tension and encourages its army to train and learn "military science in a real way" (as they wrote on the posters of the USSR). Such a point of application of soft power. At the same time, the scenario of Crimea in Taiwan will not work. There is no threat of "friendship trains" and nationalist purges there.
    The second question: Will the US contingent in Taiwan and nearby decide to defend against an invasion of the PLA landing force? It seems that the Anschluss scenario as it was in Austria at the end of the 30s is quite possible. And the US forces in the region are essentially an occupying contingent that does not want to lay down their lives for some pro-Western Chinese.
    Question three: the Baltics and the forces of the Russian Federation. Not everything is so unambiguous. Kaliningrad is cut off from the territory of Russia, therefore, with the growing threat of an unacceptable blockade and a NATO military attack, "breaking through" the land connection with Kaliningrad is a logical way out. And ending chaos in Ukraine with the help of the Russian Federation is a parallel step. Why do we need hostile troops and strike assets so close to the western border ...

    What plans the Americans are making for waging a war with Russia and China, one thing is clear that even the United States, together with its "allies", will not pull such a war either physically, and even more so morally. It is not with the natives to fight, even which in some cases they cannot suppress. What's interesting is that Forbes teaches the Pentagon what kind of war to prepare for.

    Interestingly, this statement from the American press came after:
    The PLA Coast Guard was given the right to open fire on foreign ships if necessary.

    And a statement like:
    Quote: Thrall
    Oh, the Americans are dissembling. In fact, they expect that there will not be a full-fledged war. And they will continue to deliver democracy around the planet on their AUG.

    It does not stand up to criticism in terms of deceit: it is the United States that is not ready for a full-fledged war only because in the case of Russia and China, they are threatened with heavy losses in equipment and manpower. It is to Africa or the Middle East that they can bring the "fruits of democracy" under the guise of AUG. Against Russia and China, which are armed with hypersonic anti-ship missiles, this is no longer "canal". We all remember how soon the campaign against the DPRK ended. And this is just an army, not comparable in the quality of weapons to its neighbors.
    Let them prepare. It seems to me that there will soon be no one to fight for the interests of the United States (after an adequate "response").

    Thus, they combine information operations with the isolation of the enemy, avoiding actions that could be followed by a US response. The Russian operation in Crimea is cited as an example.

    Yes, Russia returned Crimea home without firing a shot. And there they were already confidently drafting the US project - the NATO base in Sevastopol, and in general, the admission of Ukraine to NATO. The Crimea event is a "bolt from the blue" even for the CIA and NSA. When asked by the NSA, what was going on there in Crimea, the CIA, sitting in the building of the SBU of Ukraine, itself had no "idea". All communication between Kiev (General Staff and CIA) with Crimea was absent.
    They learned about the events in Crimea from the Russian media. All administrative communications of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine were blocked. So, the article correctly says that a new type of weapon of the 21st century has appeared - "an information operation to isolate the enemy." And Russia showed it brilliantly.

    It's strange to hear from the Americans about the information war on the part of opponents, like they are boots, and we are sneaks. Exactly the same conversations we had about the American strategy of war in the future (today already in the present), only the situation was presented exactly the opposite wassat what has changed interesting?
