US military press: The US army does not have the funds to implement a new defense strategy

Recently, the administration of President Joe Biden released a new US National Security Strategy. However, in reality, the American army does not have enough funds to implement it, according to the American military publication 19FortyFive.


“Strategy” implies the need to have such armed forces that are ready to perform any tasks anywhere in the world against any adversary or several adversaries at once. The implementation of this strategy requires a proper policy on the selection of the necessary personnel, as well as considerable funds, the newspaper notes.

According to Mackenzie Eaglen, a researcher at the American Enterprise Institute, the new security strategy is not based on the false premise that the United States will continue to outpace the world's leading powers in military growth. In fact, growth in this direction is already beginning to slow down significantly today, Eaglen emphasized.

The main obstacle to the implementation of the new strategy will be, as before, the inefficient bureaucracy, as well as the strong lag of the defense budget from real inflation, Eaglen believes.

Considering how the country's budget was formed last year, we can conclude that the new National Strategy is only a motivational one, writes 19FortyFive.

Thus, more than $800 billion a year is said to be missing from the implementation of the announced new US strategy. Namely, such a US military budget.

        And that’s all, the time when they could thoughtlessly print money has passed, today, let’s say they printed a trillion in the morning, then by the evening everything will rise in price by exactly this amount, now it’s impossible to reset the dollar inflation to the whole world, there is no such demand for dollars.

      "Song" about how to get money out of the budget to "maintain the pants" of the Pentagon and the local military-industrial complex.

      The main thing is that our political scientists and journalists do not find out about this news, who will foam at the mouth to prove to us that the United States is about to come kirdyk. bully

    So so. Think carefully about the phrase - a country with a military budget greater than either 6 roofing felts of 8 countries following it in terms of budget, TOGETHER - does not have the funds to implement a DEFENSE strategy!
    ((( laughing )))
    Maybe because, firstly, not defensive, but predatory
    Second, all over the world
    And thirdly, because you got carried away with the sawmill!!! Until recently, your RAND estimated the combat readiness that the United States is capable of simultaneously waging 1 high-intensity war plus a couple of medium ones, now they also estimate - 1 conflict of medium intensity, i.e. stupidly NOTHING to jump on China or the Russian Federation. With a budget of 30-odd times more than the Russian one and 4 times the Chinese one)))

    They have money, but no funds for a new strategy, because the funds are also technologies with industrial capabilities.

    And where do you share? The stories about the inefficient bureaucracy and inflation are not convincing. Or maybe all the same corruption Mr. Americans?

    The US defense budget is primarily inflated spending on the development and production of new types of weapons! And the "kickbacks" in the US military-industrial complex are such that the most cunning corrupt officials in Russia never dreamed of! Tens of billions are spent on "development" of who knows what, and then written off!
