Report of the Heritage Foundation: the index of the combat power of the American army falls due to underfunding

49
Strategic Research Institute Heritage Foundation publishes a report that presents characteristics of the state of affairs in the American army and data on what is commonly called US military power. The report itself is appropriately named. "The index of US military power".


The speakers state that some strange things are happening with the US military power. Solid "underfunding", "slowing down the pace of implementation of strategic programs", "budget cuts" and stuff like that. Representatives of the fund, whose name translates as “Heritage”, tend to believe that the US military component is degrading due to “lack of funds for project implementation”. The report says that the nuclear potential of the United States is practically not modernized, which leads to the dismissal of leading military specialists, who are now forced to look for work in other areas.

Report of the Heritage Foundation: the index of the combat power of the American army falls due to underfunding


Such statements are too openly hinting to Barack Obama that he behaved "wrong" by rejecting the draft military budget, the size of which was proposed to increase by as much as 90 billions of dollars.

Among other things, speakers Heritage Foundation report that the US Army, despite participating in numerous military companies in different regions of the world, is actually slipping into the conduct of similar operations. The authors of the report even walked through the elite units of the United States - the Marine Corps, assessing the level of its combat power "below average". According to experts of the Foundation, the Air Force and Navy degrade. In general, the degradation is complete, and after such statements, again, the Pentagon’s call read: “Give me money! More money!"

Recall that the US military budget in its volume ranks first in the world and is estimated at about 600 billion dollars!

        I think that if we give such a budget to our army, and to drive all Serdyukov out of it, then we and the aliens from Alpha Centauri will be very able to tickle our nerves, not only NATO.

        Once again, it confirms that people are not fighting budgets and doctrines. Do you dress an American soldier in a bronik not of Kevlar, but of gold 40 mm thick - that he will no longer be a Puerto Rican who enlisted in the army for a residence permit? Will his new homeland not be drummed in comparison with his precious life? Yes, he pill and homeland, and on democratic values, and on the size of the military budget. He would sit out in the Bradley, get a green card and bring down in San Antonio

        Let the debt grow, as a result, the US army will win the main victory - over the USA itself

    It may be better to reduce a couple of unnecessary bases, and not vice versa to increase.

    Apparently they do not fly as planned and missiles do not launch as they would like.
    The script urgently needs to be rewritten.
    If they understood (inwardly) how our Russian (Bashkir, Tatar, Chechen, Kalmyk, etc.) peasant would fight for their land, they would change the play - Western to comedy ...

    It seems that the printing press of the mattress has requested preventive maintenance. Such a powerful military budget is an artifact in itself that “warps space”, like the cadavre in the Strugatsky’s Monday. Self-sustaining powerful bureaucratic system, which is able to exist, only increasing its needs. The Pentagon will devour its creator, Great Mattress, in this manner.

    The bottomless barrel of the military budget, all the same, will not save the army. All the same, it’s not about money, but about love for the motherland. Well, that would be enough money, not a fig to fight with anyone without getting. It’s time to reconcile already. You won’t get all the riches anyway. fool

    They have a paid army - a significant part of the budget: salaries of military men
    (they are rather big) and pensions for officers)
    See for yourself: the content of equipment, bases, exercises, operations - 198,
    for salaries / pensions - 135, for the purchase of new equipment - 90

      Why not? You sawed off the loot. Created by NPO. Gave grants (the smartest of course). Created or attracted PMCs to protect their commercial interests. I downloaded the grandmother. He asked the government to protect your business from bad competitors (you are naturally the whitest and fluffiest). The country has listened to you. I made you an order (which means that the profit is guaranteed by the country!). You saw off part of the money to pay the right politicians. The country bombed the bad guys and cleaned up your business site. Dear! What are your personal interests? We are for world peace and a highly efficient private (for a narrow circle of people) business. So here the dependence is very direct, like scrap.

    correct remark. And the article is harmful, relaxing.
    it is better to shout about your weakness and be strong at the right time than to believe in your invincibility, being weak. our best flight personnel has been pulled to Syria. Those. the rest are weaker. there is very little new technology. Once a year to launch launders - is this normal? Yes, each call should make such launches at least 2-3 times so that the hands do not shake during real launches. In the absence of opposition, the exercises are excellent, judging by the reports. But how will this or that part behave in a real battle? Not elite special forces and landing, but the usual motorized rifle unit. Many do not join the army because of vocation, but for the sake of monetary allowance. How will they behave in case of war? Will they run out of the army or fight? And do not refer to Chechnya. There the main officers were old, Soviet-style, who went through the poverty of the 90s and did not give up. Now the composition is changing, new generations are coming ...
    Previously, this site had more realistic looks, but now we throw solid ones with hats and crush insoles.

And then what will happen to the dollar if in the world of trees it physically ceases to be enough? Better to let them stop earlier. All the same, they will stop - there is no other way.

    everything is just as in mathematics:
    The US military power index is inversely proportional to the conditions necessary for the implementation of the "cut."

    The better the conditions, the lower the index. So the more money is needed to maintain it at the level. tongue
