NI: "Russia is a serious military power", and Washington should reckon with this

110
It is strange that the military operation of Russia in the SAR, and the weapons that it uses to attack the IG, surprised the US military, according to an article by The National Interest columnist Michael Peck. Article leads RIA News.




“What continues to amaze me is their (Russia’s) ability to move large quantities of equipment over long distances and do it very quickly,” says Peck, quoting Ben Hodges, commander of the US Land Forces in Europe.

Such a reaction by the Pentagon "is in itself astonishing, since Russia is a country that has adopted extensive Soviet experience and has the skills to develop modern weapons," the author notes.

At one time, “the T-34 tank demoralized the army of Nazi Germany in 1941, the Soviet anti-tank and anti-aircraft missile systems made an impression during the Vietnam War, now the Russian Tanks equipped with modern active defense systems and are able to effectively defend against anti-tank guided missiles, ”adds Peck.

Probably the envy of the Hodges reaction left an imprint, he writes. “I wonder if countries like Britain or Germany would be able to send at least a couple of thousand people and several dozen military planes without the help of the Americans?” Peck asked a rhetorical question.

“Russia is a serious military power, and it should be treated accordingly,” the columnist concludes.

        Recently, a spokeswoman (the one that Rear Admiral doesn’t remember his name), the United States said that Russia can not be considered a superpower because the Russian economy takes 15th place (it is not clear where the numbers come from, we always were in 6-7th place) and Russia did not It has the influence of those allies that in the old days, but only Syria and Iran (probably the United States judges by itself, since the country is a superpower, it means it must push and blackmail the weaker countries in order to force them to follow the interests of the United States using the following methods: political, economic and military blackmail).

            - Have you been abroad?
            - NOT!
            - Why? I was in Berlin, in Prague.
            “Did you go there on business?”
            - I did not go. I'm on foot.
            - As a tourist?
            - No, in the infantry.

              In one Soviet-era story, he met something similar - in a conversation with a sculptor, a simple supply manager mentions the sculptures he saw in Vienna. The sculptor asks in surprise:
              “Have you been there on a business trip?”
              - You can say yes. From April to August of the 45th.

          While the Anglo-Saxons are trying to measure ourselves with felt-tip pens, we calmly go about our business. You can either secure sovereignty and freedom to make decisions or not.
          But how anyone calls whom - regional or superpower - is their ideology.
          How did someone once want to blame Putin (isn't it Berlusconi?)) You have a lot of mafia in Russia. To which Putin replied: Mafia is an Italian word ...

    The world is shocked. Russian planes drop smart bombs on Syrian rebels! Russian cruise missiles hit rebel targets hundreds of kilometers away! How is this possible? What happened to the helpless Russian army, to the bombers disgraced in Chechnya and Georgia?

    Actually, there is a more accurate question: Why is anyone surprised that Russia knows how to fight?

    The media pay much attention to the use of modern Russian weapons in Syria, including cruise missiles and satellite and laser-guided bombs. Some people doubt the number of “smart” bombs that Russia can use, but the general tone is fear and horror of Russian capabilities. Where did this shock come from?

    Fear and horror: yes, Russia can still wage war

    The weapon itself is not so impressive. Cruise missiles? The United States has been using them for 25 years since the Tomahawks hit Baghdad in 1991. Laser and satellite guided bombs? America and NATO used them in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Serbia.

    If Zimbabwe launched cruise missiles, that would be impressive. If Iran bombed with "smart" bombs, it would be surprising. But Russia is a former superpower with vast experience and the ability to develop advanced weapons.

    The T-34 tank demoralized the German armies in 1941. Soviet anti-tank weapons and air defense systems were an unpleasant surprise for the Israelis in 1973 and American aircraft over Vietnam, and Russian tanks today are equipped with active armor that protects them from anti-tank missiles. Critics are wondering if Russian planes like the Su-30 will be able to displace the best American planes.

    “It's still impressive how they managed to throw so much so far and so fast,” Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, commander of the US Army in Europe, told The New York Times.

    But what made such an impression on the American commanders is not clear. In 1982, the United Kingdom successfully deployed an entire strike force of more than 12 thousand kilometers to the Falklands, despite the very limited logistics capabilities.

    Russia merely transported a small number of soldiers and about 30 aircraft to friendly bases in Syria at a distance of four thousand kilometers. For Ecuador or New Zealand, this would be a great achievement. For such a large and powerful military power as Russia, this is not remarkable, and certainly there is nothing comparable to sending hundreds of thousands of American soldiers to Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan.

    This is not written to magnify or belittle Russian military capabilities, nor to compare them with American or Western technology. You just need to remember that Russia is not some kind of shallow third world country with an army that exists only on paper. It is the third largest military spending country in the world. Given all the billions of dollars spent on the army, is there anything more to be expected from Russian military skill than just “it didn’t fall apart along the way”?

    If Russian military skill is extolled due to the fact that in Syria, unlike Chechnya or Georgia, there was no fiasco, then remember the American armed forces after Vietnam. Recall the invasion of Grenada in 1982, when American soldiers were forced to fight powerful Cuban civil engineers. Imagine how you would feel if China began to admire the American armed forces on the grounds that they were not defeated by Saddam Hussein in 1991.

    Perhaps some envy plays a role. While NATO is trying to find a way to deal with the new aggressive Russia in Eastern Europe, it remains unclear whether countries such as Britain or Germany can deploy at least a thousand soldiers and several dozen aircraft without American help.

    Russia is a strong military power, and should be treated accordingly.

    More materials about Russia's military power should be published on the Internet, then the United States will know more about it. After all, they receive intelligence from the Internet, which the press service of the US State Department itself has stated more than once in terms of the "detection" of Russian troops in Ukraine. And, I forgot, you still need to talk about this by phone - the United States is engaged in wiretapping and, accordingly, will receive fresh intelligence information for itself. In general, we can all "help" with this.
