"We do not want war with Russia and China": The United States complained about the lack of air defense systems

The United States is closely monitoring Russian and Chinese investment in advanced missile technology because it does not want a war with them. This was stated by the deputy head of the US Chiefs of Staff, General John Hayten.


The general assessed the correlation between "Russian nuclear forces" and the American "deterrent potential." According to him, if we take into account the medium-range missiles of all types and investments in them, which Russia and China have, this is a "challenge" for the United States. The United States needs to conduct a "diligent analysis" of how to counter Russian and Chinese missiles.

Because the last thing we want is wars with Russia and China

- he stressed.

According to him, at present, the American missile defense system is focused on the threat from the DPRK, and is not directed against Russia, China or Iran, although the latter is also actively building new missiles.

At the same time, the general complained about the insufficient number of anti-missile systems to destroy missiles, since Patriot systems are a "limited resource" and they are "always insufficient." Hayten added that even these complexes are not enough to sell to other countries.

If you look at how people buy air and missile defense systems in the world, they would like to buy a Patriot, but most of the time we have no Patriot to sell, other than what we have already sold.

- he said.

Earlier, the Pentagon acknowledged that the American missile defense system would be able to intercept missiles from North Korea or Iran, but was not designed for a missile attack by Russia or China.

    Of course, in a war you can get hit in the neck yourself ... another thing, bombing with impunity! This is their business, the most favorite

    "... if we take into account the medium-range missiles that Russia and China have ... this is a "challenge" for the United States."

    If the general is about air defense and missile defense missiles, then what does this threaten America?
    If about medium-range missiles, then they will not reach America and the question is the same, how does this threaten America?
    You lie, General, shamelessly and shamelessly. And also the general.

      If about medium-range missiles, then the Russian Federation does not have them at all. prohibited by the contract (while in force).

        Already a year has passed since there is no such agreement. (The beginning of the 19th - in fact, when the US dances on the way out began and we have legally since August 2, 2019)

      They become generals not for reasons of conscience, let alone shame, these are people who are absolutely degraded and subject to degradation of their subordinates by means of statutory relations, moronic orders and orders. ...

    this is a "challenge" for the United States. The US needs to conduct a "diligent analysis" of how to counter Russian and Chinese missiles

    And just do not plan, do not develop and ... all sorts of "limited" and other non-peaceful ideas in any way? Don't want to coexist peacefully with the rest of the world?

    And whose system was in Japan when Kim launched a missile through Japan and the missile defense system slept through it? Tell such tales of Tikhanovskaya until she broke down there while building a house for Lukashenka ...

        Thank you, but about your comment below, about
        "give me more money"

        this is you to the point, well, their missile defense system on each destroyer is quite advanced, the rocket has good flight performance characteristics, and the price of the SM-3 rocket is generally awful, fluctuates in the range of $ 12-24 million, and the SM-6 is probably even more expensive, so in quiet "give more money" does not work, Russia and China are the best stimulants. You with the past hi

    How can you believe the words of the Americans, who admit their powerlessness against the Russian missiles? They themselves scream at every corner about their exclusivity and super duper weapons and the world's best air and missile defense, and now what? So another catch ... do not go to grandma ...

    It’s incomprehensible, if they’re afraid, why then pump up and constantly rattle weapons all over the world ?! If for internal use and only for "give more money", then this can be done quietly, with a get-together between the Senate and members of the military-industrial complex. It is not at all necessary for this to yell at all the mouthpieces that we and China are their enemies and constantly, on every occasion, try to make us another byaka. Whoever is afraid sits quietly! So they have conceived some next brothel, together with the Square, judging by the affairs on the border with the LPNR!
