American press: the United States has lost superiority over Russia in the development of new strategic weapons

64

The United States is catastrophically behind Russia in the development of new strategic weapons, the US authorities have ineptly squandered the existing technical and production advantage over Russia and China. This opinion was reached by the author of an article for the American edition of The American Conservative, David Goldman.


The Russian economy is inferior to the American one in all respects, but this does not prevent Russia from creating weapons that are significantly superior to those developed by the United States. At the same time, the US administration, instead of investing in the development of new models weaponsspends funds on adventurous projects abroad. The author emphasizes that the United States, which became the winner in the Cold War, eventually became the losers in the field of defense technologies.

According to Goldman, in recent years Russia has been able to develop, test and put into service many weapons that the US and its allies simply do not have. We are talking about ground- and underwater-launched hypersonic systems that are capable of overcoming any missile defense system, including the American one. According to him, Russia is already supplying advanced S-400 anti-aircraft systems abroad, adopting the new S-500 and S-550 air defense systems, as well as the Zirkon hypersonic missile. China, in turn, is also developing hypersonic weapons capable of destroying American aircraft carriers.

The journalist notes that while Russia and China do not have a strategic superiority over the United States, but this time will come pretty soon if they continue to move in this direction. At the same time, the US authorities do not admit their failures and continue to persist in their delusions.

Washington is trying to cover up its weakness with NATO expansion, but this could lead to a war that the US will lose, the author concludes.

    The United States is a powerful power, in their hands there are many instruments of influence that prevent us, others, from developing normally ....
    All this can be overcome if you understand and do everything right.

      We also sometimes interfere with ourselves by storing our gold and foreign exchange reserves in the West, which are then arrested at the snap of our fingers. Isn’t it clear that grandmothers should be kept in our banks, and not with Uncle Sam? I hope this will be a lesson and from now on we will all our profits we will store only in our banks and in our own currency. Everything that is not done is all for the better.

        This will seriously impede international trade, as offsets sometimes do not go through and you need to pay "in cash", and as quickly and conveniently as possible for the seller-buyer. That is why there are foreign accounts, currency ones, obviously ...
        But about offshore companies - that's the point! And in general, it's time to put an end to the undervaluation of the ruble and the revaluation of the dollar. The real price of which is 26 (!) Rubles!!! But our currency ... uh, "speculators" from the IMF branch, it's more convenient ...
        Nabiullina, in fact, she does not report to us ... This is essentially an IMF clerk. From here you need to dance. And about the nationalization of the Central Bank, something has not even been heard recently.
        Somehow, however.

            It was not they who won, but our Gorbachevs and Yeltsins handed over everything to them on a silver platter. They thought civilization was humane and just, but they turned out to be barbarians and liars.

        The country's integration into the world economy is not happening for thanks.
        It has long been known that since the mid-90s our central bank has been forced to "dance" to American "advice" and the help of liberals ..

        Time passes, the situation in the world has changed ... they simply cannot be removed, there will be too much badaboom ... this does not appeal to anyone.
        Gradual squeezing them out from everywhere, building parallel alternative systems of international settlements ... like that.

          Their printing press was given into the hands of Jewish clans in private hands and the printing of papers untied from gold backing began, but all the other currencies in the world were tied to this currency and, most importantly, they imposed it, for oil and other payments purely in dollars ..

      All this "many tools" comes down, in the end, to only one word - DOLLAR. There will be no world hegemony of the dollar - and the US will be a "regional power" like Mexico.
      Economic and scientific power has not been in the leading positions for a long time. Only financial.
      We will print dollars, we will pay for any army - both our own and someone else's. We will buy anyone and anything. Whoever needs it - we will feed, whoever needs it - we will "cut" the dollars.
      That's all their "power". The profitability of their financial sector reaches 50%, and the main part of the profit (about 80%) is created abroad. They have been doing everything lately to undermine confidence in the dollar - good luck to them! I'll see where the green candy wrappers from the "magic machine" to the Fed will go if no one in the world needs them.

          Resellers can't. I have a firm, figuratively speaking, "works with his hands." I do not resell anything, I - everything according to K. Marx. I produce goods. I get surplus value not from resale, but by investing labor.
          Therefore, for me personally, somehow green paper is deep on the drum. I even buy Komatsu bulldozers and Hitachi excavators for rubles. I understand that they come to Russia for dollars "from there". Well, again, this is not a question of the indispensability of the dollar - give me the T-500 Cheboksarin, make me the Uralmash excavator as hardy and profitable in operation as the Hitachi. Not to mention the fact that Hitachi is sometimes cheaper than Uralmash in price.
          I repeat - the question about the import "from there" for dollars is not for me, but for those who talk about "import substitution" on TV.

    The United States is catastrophically behind Russia in the development of new strategic weapons
    Therefore, they will be so hysterical trying to crush Russia economically. European henchmen gladly supported and also joined the new "campaign to the East" to their own detriment.

      The next crusade of the Anglo-Saxons against Russia has begun, already in the open .. We have not beaten them in the face yet, they always dodged, substituting others under the Russian fist!

    FSA recognized themselves as losers?
    This is just the beginning!
    There is still a split ahead, a civil war, pay and repent.
    Demilitarization and denazification.
    Humanitarian corridors to Mexico through the Texas People's Republic will be provided.

      Calm down, this is just a frequent opinion of some newspaper ...

      They never admit they are wrong or losers.

      Demilitarization and denazification.
      Only after Ukraine, and that may be. Against the backdrop of all that is happening, the government of Latvia stated that "We respect the Russians" "we live and grow rich in one country" "This is your land too" The latter is worth explaining. For Latvians, LAND means everything. It means belonging. And finally, "We respect and Appreciate Russia, but not Putin's Russo Federation" In short (who haven't read it) they offer the Russian Balts to hate Russia together.

      It is they who squeeze the loot for their military-industrial complex. Take, for example, the maxim about the sinking of aircraft carriers. Who, apart from the states, has aircraft carriers the main striking force? Whose aircraft carriers do they need to sink? Chinese? They can be dealt with with the means available.
      Or air defense systems. Everyone else needs serious air defense systems, since NATO has a monstrous advantage in aviation. In NATO, aviation is responsible for air defense, Patriot - so, on the sing-along, no more. They will need an effective air defense system, they adapt SM-2 and SM-3 to land.

    So they greatly relaxed the rolls after the collapse of the USSR, of course. Take the same uranium. And thank God we had the mind not to give up and go forward. And there is insider information that there is already a product, compared to Zircon, it's like an F-1 car with a bicycle.

    American press: the United States has lost superiority over Russia in the development of new strategic weapons

    Unfortunately, not yet, since the samples have not yet been brought to mass production, the enemy is still strong and should not be underestimated, but there is a trend.

    This is only the beginning of the conflict with the West, which we have in the form of oligarchism, corruption and all sorts of other hangers-on! It is still unknown how it will end. And who and by whom will CLEAN Russia? Take, for example, the Moscow CANCER tumor on the body of the country! What to do with it and how to remove it - after all, it will not be possible to gently transform ...
    Yes, and we are in places and in the brains in many ways the same TUMORS ...

      Sanctions will cure everything. Already at the end of this year, a real apocalypse will begin in the Western economy. And we, willy-nilly, will have to redo our economic development model. Due to the fact that money is being printed intentionally, trying to prevent a crisis, and Biden is transferring arrows from himself to Putin, they say it's all because of Putin, such prices, and not because of my economic policy.

    In development, on the contrary, they are ahead of us .... they are developing to hell, we cannot achieve quantitatively their heterogeneity in development. But the implementation of the developments that are specifically needed right now is far behind them! The Yankees have too many raw novelties poked into their armaments, which is why the weapons and equipment themselves are raw and unfinished to the desired efficiency of use. In any complex mechanism, it is dangerous to introduce more than 15% of new parts that have not been previously tested on other machines and mechanisms, otherwise all new items accumulate exponentially errors in each part and errors in their interaction. This suffers performance and maintenance complexity to insane price and frequency levels. The Yankees have it at every turn in their prodigies. Ours go step by step, step by step, honing any new element. And war requires cheapness, mass production, efficiency of use, ease of maintenance of weapons.
