Commander-in-Chief of the US Navy: America "returned to the era of great power rivalry"

46
Commander-in-Chief of the United States Navy, John Richardson, stated that Russia's naval strategy is very progressive, and must be answered. About this newspaper reports Look.




“For the first time in the last 25 years, the United States has returned to an era of great power rivalry,” said the admiral, referring to the actions of fleets in the oceans. “Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, no one has challenged the US Navy.”

"This time has passed," said the commander. “Today, Russia and China are increasing their military capabilities in order to once again act as global powers, and to achieve this goal, they are increasing their arsenals of modern weapons.”

“The pace and frequency of operations of the Russian Navy is now higher than ever in the last 20 years,” he said, stressing that the long-term Russian strategy “needs to be answered.”

At the same time, the “Navy of the People’s Liberation Army of China is expanding its area of ​​operations throughout the world,” Richardson said.

"This is the rivalry of the great powers," he stated.

“Russia and China have improved their military capabilities, allowing them to act as world powers. Their goals are supported by a growing arsenal of high-level weapons, many of which are focused on our vulnerabilities, ”said the admiral.

Richardson previously pointed to the high activity of the Russian fleet in the waters of the Black and Mediterranean Seas. In this regard, he proposed sending more ships to Europe.

    Флот наш, на сегодняшний момент, имею в виду надводный, явно слабоват. Выезжаем за счёт подводного флота и новых "калибров", размещаемых на кораблях 2-3-го классов. Чего американцы не догадались сделать. Работы у корабелов и правительства в этом направлении - непочатый край. Будем надеяться - успеем к 20-му году приблизиться к требуемой боеготовности.

    In my opinion, there is no rivalry and cannot be.
    In the current situation, Russia is renewing its forces, as planned units.
    BUT, if the Americans only need this in order to get the next tranche out of the budget - WELCOME - let them set the next ceiling and record for their external debt)

    "This time has passed," said the commander. “Today, Russia and China are increasing their military capabilities in order to once again act as global powers, and to achieve this goal, they are increasing their arsenals of modern weapons.”

    They have the right and opportunity. But the United States never got out of the state of the Cold War intermittently.

    Strengthen, expand, strengthen. And what's wrong with that?

    But the conclusion is: the United States must strengthen in order to answer this. Why, why? To be stronger in the world (they all recognized themselves blush and whiter laughing )? Is this a legitimate, legitimate goal?

    Strange we are Russians - everyone is swimming off their shores, and not off the shores of potential friends, following their example. It's time to resolve this issue. We are with the Russian Sea, and the Chinese are also strange (East, however) with the South China Sea. Only now I have not found anywhere on the globe the Anglo-Saxon Sea, which is even overwhelming. Maybe that's why they scour the oceans and can’t find everything?

    Today, Russia and China are increasing their military capabilities in order to once again act as global powers, and in order to achieve this goal they are increasing their arsenals of modern weapons.

    this means that now the Russian + Chinese fleet does not pose a threat to the United States, but in the future it will probably be a threat. The US military is trying to drive grandmothers to new ships from Congress under the guise of an outgoing threat from Russia and China.
