"Russia will cut cables, China blocks communications": American admiral wrote a novel about the third world war

47

After resignation, not all high-ranking American military personnel manage to take a "grain" place in one of the defense corporations or make a political career. Among them was US Navy Admiral James Stavridis, who served in navy 30 years, after which he commanded NATO forces in Europe. He decided to try his hand at the creative field, co-writing the work "2034: a novel about the next world war."


Stavridis' detailed operational knowledge of military strategy and tactics has created a realistic, detailed and highly readable narrative of how World War III could begin.

- indicated in the ASPI Strategist edition.

The book is structured around a scenario in which the PRC, once it raises its military to world-class standards, will quickly oust the US and other foreign navies from the South China Sea and use its newfound power to unite Taiwan with the mainland. To this end, the PRC is closely cooperating with its allies - Russia and Iran.

China's advanced cyber offensive capabilities take the US by surprise, highlighting its Achilles' heel - the book devotes an entire chapter to "Blinding the Elephant" as part of an all-encompassing attack

- noted in the publication.

In the story, China is busy blocking American military communications in the South China Sea. Russia is cutting submarine cables in the Barents Sea, dramatically slowing down Internet connections across the United States. Iran remotely takes control of an American fighter jet and uses its cyber-cloaking, stealth materials and satellite communications to render its air force virtually invisible for extended periods of time. After that, the secure communications systems of the White House are hacked and Washington's connection with the outside world is cut off.

Unaware of the limits of the US red lines, the Chinese inadvertently provoke a tactical nuclear strike against their port, which leads to a series of retaliatory actions.

"Russia will cut cables, China blocks communications": American admiral wrote a novel about the third world war

As you can see, the retired American military official has a rich imagination, but it is based on all those, if I may say so, newspaper horror stories that have been broadcast in the United States in recent years.

          To the Norwegians, not so long ago, Hollywood showed the series. About the Russian attack.
          It seems funny, but the States have already placed bases in Japan. Without war.

          I wonder if the author himself expects to live until 2034? And if so, what will he do during the war? Or will it be the second volume of the "immortal roman"?

    IN THE EYES OF BULGARIA GENERALS AMERICAN SOLDIERS PERFORM EXERCISES AT FACTORIES IN BULGARIA! I am ashamed of the gas flushing and the betrayal of the Bulgarian politicians in front of the cows!

    SOFT SLAVERY
    Today American soldiers invaded the Bulgarian enterprise. The teaching was! Obviously, they are learning to kill on the other side of the planet, and I cannot remember what interests they have on other continents. And the hare of Bulgarian politicians, under whose kind eyes this crime against Bulgaria is being committed, no longer surprises me. What surprises me is when every Bulgarian government over the past three decades has been appointed and approved by Kozyak!
    In fact, today we are slaves again. Yes, we have no visible chains, slavery is mild at first glance, but we have no more rights in our own country than the serfs in the Ottoman Empire. Cowboys define our government, define our values, define our history, define what our children should learn, indicate which of their enemies to expel or arrest in our (or rather their) country.

    Well, the admiral wrote a book. And what? Our quite domestic authors dashed off about the 3rd world, probably with a thousand, choose anyone who likes what. Has anyone read Clancy? By the way, he even described the use of a passenger liner by terrorists in great detail. True, he immediately sawed into the Capitol, but these are details.

    Fantastic film, action and drama: Invasion Day (2013, USA).
    Plot:
    "The near future. China unexpectedly launches a large-scale cyber attack on the United States for non-payment of debt. Every computer, every gadget made in China is endowed with a deadly virus that paralyzes all financial, telecommunications, military and energy systems. Planes fall from the sky, cities remain without light, the inhabitants of the country find themselves in occupation. Now every American is obliged to wear a special bracelet by which the invaders track the whereabouts of a person. One of the American cybernetic scientists, by a lucky chance, escapes captivity. He has a plan to save his family and prevent further invasion but for this he will have to travel a long road full of dangers. "

Unfortunately, the world works like that. Look at Ukraine, Poland, Georgia. They are cutting neighbors, not just people of a different nationality, faith. before they kill whites, they need to destroy their nuclear weapons, no one knows how the blacks will treat them and against whom.
