The White House announced plans to accelerate the modernization of key weapons

21
The United States will restore the combat readiness of the armed forces affected by the sequestration, as well as accelerate the modernization of key weapons, the White House Budget Office reported to the Congress on a draft federal budget for the 2015 year.


"The document promotes national security priorities and provides resources and opportunities to protect the US and its interests around the world ... Accelerates the modernization of key weapons systems, activates the restoration of combat readiness affected by sequestration, supports research in the nuclear field, provides for investments in defense facilities and their construction in the country, "- said in a statement.

The purpose of the defense budget items is to maintain modern armed forces capable of responding to a wide variety of threats, including terrorism and cyber attacks, RIA “News».

According to the budget management, the project provides funds for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, humanitarian and diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in Syria, reform in the Middle East and North Africa, protection of strategic interests in the Asia-Pacific region.

In addition, it is planned to strengthen oversight of intelligence activities, to strengthen the protection of US diplomatic missions.

Earlier on Tuesday, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, at a conference on European defense policy organized by the European Commission in Brussels, said that US spending on defense research and development is seven times higher than similar EU spending.

In general, after four years of cuts, global military spending has once again gone up. Researchers have found that the trend has changed thanks to Russia and China, which significantly increased their defense budgets.

This circumstance is already a concern for NATO, although observers say the rise in military spending by the two countries is completely justified.

        In Kiev, civil charter flights are thrown strong guys working in the company "Greystone Limited", registered in Barbados. Greystone, Ltd. is a division of the "private" military company Blackwater (XE services), which oversees the CIA. The guys arrive in small groups, but with them big bags army style. According to some reports, by the evening of March 4 arrived about 300 people. Something similar is happening in Odessa.

        Blackwater mercenaries are saboteurs, professional killers. On account of each - hundreds of corpses. At one time, they in two weeks destroyed the Republic of Serbian Krajina.

          Judging by the numbers, this is not for war. This is for the "protection" of the first persons of the "revolution". In the case of kipish, some documents and people should not fall into the hands of our special officers. And then America's restoration of the facade of the "democratic state" will be expensive if someone from the knowledgeable sings on TV channels. Or maybe they want to clean up the unwanted, dumping all the blame on the actions of the "bloody gebni". The same sashko who played the role of a sufferer is quite suitable. It's no secret that his people do not obey the new government in Kiev. And they will shoot the fool so as not to interfere, and they will dip us into the toilet. Like they flunked the hero of the revolution

            This, by the way, is a very real scenario, a classic move in the arsenal of special services. Remember the elimination of Iranian nuclear scientists - the Saudis crushed them, and they poked at us with their fingers.

    They started earlier, they didn’t even wait for elections. Now it’s clear why the mess in Ukraine was arranged.
    Once I listened to an interview with our Soviet cosmonaut, so he said that at any international conferences the Americans came up and did not hesitate to ask our people to publish such a thread in the scientific press so that they could ask for money in the budget)))) Then, "well, we used it sometimes .. " repeat

    comrades, all this fuss around Ukraine was started in order to show how bad Russia is and it needs to beware, but the essence of all is just some 100 billion dollars that were cut off by the us defense department. Money and money Americans are ready for anything. People will suffer us, soldiers will die. It is necessary to declare a bikeot to American goods.

    The escalation of the race, the armament and rearmament of the army (begun 20 years later, and then against the background of the growing external threat to the country's territorial integrity) are absolutely different things and it is absolutely impossible to compare them. For example, we develop for the most part defensive systems and are guided by the "principle of reasonable sufficiency" and ours " colleagues "prefer offensive systems. So who is the threat to peace coming from? Who is initiating the arms race?

    Damn, I'm driving a Chevrolet smile
    Loot rules the world! It was in the USSR that they brought up humanitarian values, and in the USA the dream is how to earn money. I was always struck in amers that everything is reduced to money. But what about the eternal?

    THE USA WITH THEIR AGGRESSIVE MILITARY DOCTRINE NEEDS AN ORDER OF MORE FUNDS A PRIORI THAN WITH OUR DEFENSE. AND THESE COSTS WILL GROW. IN ESSENCE THEY ARE PLAYING VA-BANK - TO HANDLE YOUR RESOURCES OR Crash. THERE IS EVERYTHING INSURANCE AGGRESSION DIRTY METHODS. THE INTENSITY OF SIMILAR PROCESSES IS EVERYTHING ABOVE AND MEANS THEY ARE APPROACHED TO ZEITNOTE. THE RAISED WATER CIRCUIT TENSIONS THEIR ITSELF. AND GOD LET ME GET THERE TO THEIR CRASH ... OR NOT TO SEE THE FINAL BY OPTION - "SO DO NOT GET YOU TO ANYONE" ...
