American admiral: Nuclear war with Russia or China becomes quite possible

118

An article was published in the American media, which examines "the real prospect of a clash of nuclear powers." Bill Gertz of The Washington Times writes about this. Hertz's article is a response to the material of the American Admiral Charles Richards, published in the scientific journal of the US Navy Institute.


The American admiral writes that at the first stage after the end of the Cold War, it seemed that the very possibility of a nuclear collision was left behind. But as Richards adds, now that confidence has faded.

From the material:

In the past, there is already the very hope that a nuclear conflict is improbable.

The American admiral notes that the situation is following a path in which a nuclear war with Russia or China becomes quite possible. Richards notes that if you do not take any measures, then it will come to the use of nuclear weapons. The admiral writes that this can happen if armed conflicts with the use of conventional weapons directly threaten the opponents of the United States (we are talking about China and Russia). At the same time, the admiral does not specify which conflicts he has in mind.

Richards:

I propose to change the concept that the Pentagon is used today. Move from the thesis about the impossibility of nuclear war to the thesis that nuclear war has become a real prospect.

If the concept is reformatted in this way, then, as the American military expert writes, it "will help the Pentagon to better respond to possible challenges, including those that clearly threaten the very existence of the United States of America."

The Washington Times notes that 10-15 years ago, the very discussion of the issue of a probable nuclear war would have seemed like "conspiracy and a game of a sick imagination." But today this has become possible.

        Do you want to disarm? Why so many weapons? In my opinion, the answer is obvious.

          The answer is obvious, but you look at the reality. Our Army is being cut more and more. According to the doctrine, the size of the Army in peacetime is 1 people. Currently less than 300.
          Such abbreviations are not clear.

            Do you want the times of millions of armies to return? ) In my opinion, modernity requires unification and modernization. There is no need to waste budget money ineffectively! Or do you want to accuse Shoigu of incompetence? In my opinion, the "saneest" Minister of Defense in decades! He knows what he is doing .. And if he lost somewhere in quantity, then he will arrive in quality, for the same money! That's right! Our budget is not rubbery and we don't print dollars either, like some ..

              Of the 900 thousand. Landmen, about 600. Of these, about 200 are rear services. 400 are distributed across the country. Even if there are 300 in the western direction, how long will they last? At most a week. Any weapon is made to destroy the enemy, not for parades.

                    Suvorov, Kutuzov? Or were there simply different times? You can continue. Sevastopol to Crimean, Gurko on Shipka. Let's take into account the motivation slightly? Moreover, Kutuzov and Suvorov is a constant superiority in forces and weapons from the enemy. Skobelev's Central Asian campaign and Linevich's expedition - overwhelming superiority in manpower.
                    No, of course it makes no sense to rely on the motivation and genius of command. These factors are from the category of "heavenly blessings". The army needs to be dealt with. Hold the contract, drive out conscripts, arm and train. Try to secure the possibility of deploying these "large battalions". However, educating your citizens as defenders is the same thing.

                      When we fight with the same weapon, then it will really be relevant.
                      The realities of today Syria of barmaley is ten times more than ours and we cannot deny them their self-sacrifice, fanaticism, but we have modern technology. The result to tell you?
                      Recent conflict in Karabakh. Azerbaijan's equipment turned out to be better and the army was larger. The result is to tell you or you know.
                      There is a video on the network when our special forces are destroying the barmaley, night, dark broads and a detachment five times larger than ours was destroyed. There is a video from Iraq. A helicopter with electro-optical equipment fires a detachment of the Iraqi guards. Death came from nowhere.
                      Such are the examples.
                      The winner is the one with the larger army and better weapons.

        Translation from www.translate.ru
        The United States must be prepared for a nuclear war with China or Russia and look for new ways to deter both countries from using new advanced strategic weapons, the US Strategic Command Commander warns in a major new review of the global nuclear balance.

        Admiral Charles Richard, writing in the current issue of the US magazine Naval Institute Proceedings, has given a blunt and detailed assessment that the luxury of living in the post-Cold War era, when direct armed conflict with a rival nuclear power was impossible, is over.

        "There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could quickly escalate into a conflict over nuclear weapons if they believe the loss of conventional weapons would threaten a regime or state," the four-star admiral wrote.


        Let me ask you, who is our master of regional conflicts!?! angry Sit there behind your puddle and don't stick your head out - there will be no conflicts !!! am

            The meaning of the article is the same - the admiral is still in the service, and sang the old song in a new way. But as soon as he leaves the service, he will immediately sing another aria that the world must avoid a nuclear catastrophe. In general, another dummy for civilians, there is nothing interesting in it.

        Colleague, thank you so much for the link. I got acquainted with the original source and realized what a LADY they had slipped to us here! They snatched out a fragment and perverted the meaning of the article by the commander of the US Strategic Command! And this is a figure, by the way.
        Meanwhile, a 4-star the admiral talked about very real things:
        - if, when using conventional weapons, the Russian Federation or China will lose and their territorial integrity becomes a threat, they will use nuclear weapons, for which the US Armed Forces are not ready;
        - the US military continues to prepare for the wars of the Cold War era, but they have changed. The term "cross-domain threats" has been put forward.
        - China and the Russian Federation are aggressively rearming themselves, which challenges the leadership of the United States, so the Yankees will have to "accept the glove of competition between the great powers and OUR NUCLEAR COLLEAGUES."
        - China is a "strategic Peer" It continues to make "technological leaps" in all areas (!). A new long-range b-k, GZO, space and anti-space systems, in the next 10 years will double the nuclear potential ... Cyberattacks and threats in space.
        Richard points to "passiveness in the face of CUTTING Chinese and Russian strategic threats."
        - RUSSIA is "aggressively modernizing", 70% has modern weapons: GZO, a torpedo with YaBZ, modern ballistic missiles and missile defense systems, anti-space weapons ...
        And they are trying to sniff us the propaganda of the political education of the era of L.I. Brezhnev, presenting the Commander as a STRETCH half-wit ... There are no such people in the upper echelons of the Pentagon.
        Therefore: in order to win, the enemy must be known and respected by worthy counterparts ...
        AHA.

            Of course they do. Therefore, Richardson in his article advises generals close to politicians to look at things realistically and asks ... to modernize forces. Nature has not gone anywhere: the conclusion that the United States is losing leadership pushes him to build up military muscle. But most importantly, he points out the threat from China, calling him "strategic Peer"!
            And this is perhaps the main thing.

          And how to call him after that - well, honestly, isn't he a half-wit who seriously talks about a scenario where we start a war against the United States with conventional weapons, or American tanks will start attacking from the Baltic states. Where are you personally, at what meeting did you hear that we will fight the United States with conventional weapons and without the use of nuclear weapons? I don’t remember this in my life, even at the level of a group of troops. Following your statement that there are no idiots in the upper echelons of the Pentagon, then why should they believe that we will only fight with them with conventional weapons?
          Because I do not believe that he was carrying a gag, I suspect that his words are just another propaganda maneuver in light of the division of the military budget or attempts to increase it. There is nothing smart from a military point of view in his words, and therefore I think that this is just another empty shell that does not relate to us in any way. I got acquainted, and immediately the informational into the trash - in my time they worked like that.

          The doctrine of Russia clearly states that ANY attack by ANY type of armed forces is viewed as a threat to the state, which uses nuclear weapons in response.
          For some reason, they decided that it was possible to start a conventional war, and the main thing was not to provoke Russia to use nuclear weapons.

        Yes, in my opinion, on the contrary - "healthy, fit." The forces are equal again, the economies are also equal (China and the USA). Therefore, a real war is possible. Not inevitable, but quite possible. Therefore, it is necessary to think it over in advance.

            Come on. You need to think about where they will hit you, how they will hit you. How will you answer ... How much and what will you lose at each stage of hostilities. How to transfer, supply, feed and heal. Even your notorious cemetery must be counted. How many shovels and everything else you and the enemy will need. Will you keep the general rule of the country and the blacks ...
            They'll count it, and it will become clear that it is possible to attack, but the cat cried for the achieved goals. Or vice versa, the case costs a couple of hundred million lives. You can stir up.
            By the way, earlier in the mob prescription from the RVC it ​​was indicated that one should run to the place of gathering, and not to the cemetery. Do you see the difference?

    In matters of war and peace, situations do not go by themselves. It is diligently led by those entities who hope to realize their dominance over it (the situation) and over the defeated enemy, the victory over which seems inevitable to them. This entity is a kind of "deep state" within the Anglo-Saxon world. It is she who is the global threat to peace. However, it is clear that it itself is not recognized in its plans for the destruction of the world and will not go over from cannibalism to vegetarianism of its own free will.

    A major military-political scandal is being discussed in Poland. The Winter 2020 headquarters exercise, in which several thousand officers took part, ended in impressive disgrace. The simulation showed that after just five days the war on the eastern flank of the country (the border with Russia and Belarus) was lost, and the Polish army ceased to exist .... First of all, as the Interia journalists found out, the simulation took into account new weapons systems ordered by Poland but not yet delivered to the United States are Patriot anti-aircraft systems, HIMARS missile artillery and the F-35 multipurpose aircraft. The defense of Poland was concentrated on the northeastern flank, bordering with Russia (Kaliningrad region) and Belarus. “The fierce defense of eastern Poland led to the defeat of the units stationed there and huge losses. On the fifth day of the virtual conflict, the enemy reached the Vistula. On the fourth day, Warsaw was surrounded. Strategic ports were blocked or busy. The aircraft and navy ceased to exist despite NATO support. To the east of the Vistula, the Polish units suffered a crushing defeat. The battalions of the first line have lost 60 to 80 percent of manpower and equipment, ”the portal describes the results of the exercises. laughing In theory, losing gamers should bill Russia for brazen virtual aggression ... what a disrespect for European values  laughinghttps://eadaily.com/ru/news/2021/02/02/na-4-y-den-varshava-byla-okruzhena-ucheniya-v-polshe-zakonchilis-pozorom

    So the Pentagon uses a different concept (Warcraft), first we create a bridgehead, let the meat go, check the enemy's defenses, wait for the meat to be carried further, the aggressor tries to seize the Baltic states, Ukraine And so on, we carry the aggressor, and then, like Napoleon and Hitler to Moscow (the morder must be defeated) and the entry from the west as in a history textbook, and for those who write a couple of lines with Yao, no one near the border of the Russian Federation will use it, so the wind can blow to the east, and in the media, like many years ago, the bear will again be to blame) )

      Yes, not he, he was ordered, and he made a statement. Let me remind you of our recent history - there was such a NGSh Kvashnin, who said that we would replace the closed Lourdes with an orbital group. Only a dim-witted general could say this, but I think that he was not, but blurted out what he was ordered, although in the eyes of professionals he looked like a complete layman. The same is the situation with the military in the United States - there they are not at all as free in their opinion as someone might think. General Schwarzkopf, hero of the Gulf War, flew out of the army with a crash as soon as he dared to have his own opinion, and naturally the US military knows and remembers his history.

    And why did some people think that the general is crazy.
    He said absolutely right
    - If America continues to press so impudently on China and / or Russia, then it may shoot back.
    America's aggressive actions can lead to a military conflict. First regional, small. And then this small conflict can easily turn into a global nuclear one.
    Those. Americans need to be prepared to retaliate. And then after the victory over the USSR, some think that no one will dare.
