Analysts: America is not ready for a big bloody war

104
The organization and global positioning of the US military after the end of the Cold War does not meet the risk of a full-scale and bloody war, analysts at the American University International School Nora Bensakhel and retired General David Barno say.




“Today, almost no one in the rank of Colonel has ever served in the army, which has an opponent of equal power, and has never encountered the real prospect of waging a global war to protect the vital interests of the state or even its survival,” RIA News.

“Although the likelihood of such a large war is low, it is increasing due to unrest and growing extremism, and the consequences of such a war can be horrendous,” experts write.

According to them, “even today's conflicts, as well as possible unforeseen expenses and just the management of the Ministry of Defense, require the mobilization of all available resources and time.”

The authors point to a number of gaps that the command needs to fill in order to be ready for major conflicts.

The first weak point they called “precision munitions and modern weaponwhich will be destroyed in the first weeks of the war, as they are purchased in limited quantities and will require urgent replenishment. ”

Also at the first stage of the war "many combat vehicles can be destroyed, whether they be airplanes, drones, submarines or even ground equipment." “The remaining units may be outdated or vulnerable, they will need to be replaced or abandoned immediately,” analysts write. “Since it takes months and years to produce most of the equipment, the military-industrial complex must be ready to speed up production.”

In addition, the Pentagon must "develop plans for a major war, carefully assess the weaknesses of the armed forces and their needs," the authors believe. The command must be ready "to prepare and equip short deadlines, to provide leadership for new troops, and also to supply them for months and even years, until the fighting comes to an end."

According to analysts, America may be "the most vulnerable country for cyber attacks, because their military, government and business functions depend on electronics."

And finally, today, American citizens are “not psychologically prepared for a similar war, serious destruction and major casualties, but the necessary resilience cannot be worked out in advance, it is formed only in wartime,” conclude Bensachel and Barno.

    America has never led a large and bloody warrior. America has always fought either with the wrong hands, or with obviously weaker ones.

          What can I say, if the advance of American troops can stop the lack of dry closets in the troops. The US Army, in fact, is a colonial overseer, who, if necessary, can bake a thin slave with a club. Against a serious opponent, the Americans pass. We have to rely on the cunning intrigues of the special services, on the color revolutions and terrorism, as if I did not want to hide it.

      Do not tell me, the Japanese in World War II were very worthy and strong opponents of the Yankees. Therefore, the States were robustly stunned for the first two years. But then, the incomparably more powerful economic potential and incomparable resources of the United States, did their job - they crushed the japs.

        May be. True, we overthrew this strong enemy in a few weeks. And besides, given that the war was fought on foreign territory, and the fact that not a single bomb fell on American cities, we can assume that the war was incomparably easier for them than for the USSR, for example .....

        I’m not sure they practically didn’t fight in hand-to-hand combat, only from afar with battleships or from the air. The Japanese, yes, they were serious opponents, but now the spirit of a samurai under occupation has died.

          Yes, the usual election hysteria begins. Each candidate through controlled media is trying to get support for the military-industrial complex and army votes. Whoever buys more money from the Congress for military needs will be supported by the warriors. That whining started from all sides: the tanks are old, there are not enough precision weapons, everything is gone, the plaster is removed, the Russians are coming !!!
          I really hope that our structures responsible for the defense industry will not fall for this newspaper "weakness" of the n-owls, but will increase the combat power of Russia according to the principle: "And Vaska is listening, but eating ..."

      Ordinary soldiers and people do not want to fight, they want to go home at home, and that from lack of money and unemployment go to the army, this is inevitable.
      If we strictly evaluate the US military successes, then their only record-breaking victory is Japan, in all other cases of military skirmishes they can be considered lost. They got especially cool in Vietnam and Korea.

        Dear, what are these strange "football" comparisons? And in general, between 1905 and 1945. 40 years ... What did you want to say with your comments? And it’s impossible to speak so unambiguously about the "victory" of the Americans. More shame than Pearl Harbor, probably no other fleet in the world has experienced. And our fleet at Tsushima at one time accepted the battle in deliberately losing conditions. In short ...

      If in the early days all modern technology is lost, then why are they only bet on it. So "join the bayonets!" There is no need to diminish the capabilities of the American army. And with the numbers and funding and combat training, everything is fine with them. And it is generally difficult for anyone to be fully prepared for a "big war".soldier

        Man, I don’t think I’ll say banality, but you don’t take into account the STRENGTH OF THE SPIRIT. And you cannot win without it. And even if they are hung with arms from head to toe, but they did not fight against a serious opponent. And Russia is a serious opponent. And even very much. We were brought up on the examples of Victory in the Great War. We dream of the exploits of our fathers and grandfathers. They are haunted by the shame of Vietnam. hi

      America has never led a large and bloody warrior.

      --------------------------
      Why didn’t you? In Iraq and Afghanistan, you just can’t just sit quietly on the ass. All the same, about 150 troops were involved and all types of troops. They have combat-ready units, but this is not enough for a big war. Second, these groups at a theater of operations remote from the United States consumed a lot of resources and demanded the organization of life, logistics, warehouses, guards, airfields, a lot of things. The USA now just has a powerful fleet, on which they deploy missile defense systems, and in fact strike cruise missiles turn it into some kind of heavy-duty trump card. Aviation has lost its former glory, updating is slow. Yes, and the quality of the update in the form of the F-000 is doubtful in terms of moving to a fundamentally new level. Now a more motivated opponent, even with old weapons, easily overturns a less ready moral one. These are the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the DPR, for example, the same jihadists in Iraq who seized warehouses with new weapons of the Iraqi army. The article correctly noted, but this is just a sketch. Will it really be so business or not unknown? We saw brave American sailors kneeling in front of Iranian border guards, how American pilots panic in front of our interception fighters. On the other hand, there are stubborn militias and reservists in the U.S. who can fight. Recently, the feds sniper killed a protesting militia in Oregon.

      Everything is certainly relative, but the United States put its soldiers quite a bit, World War II, Kreia, Vietnam. After WWII, no one led large-scale warriors. The only US really fought a little on its territory.
      I’m not sure that we are ready. More precisely, I can’t imagine the goals for which we can set, well, say at least one hundred thousand people. and if there are millions of losses, as in world warriors, what, in addition to protecting your country from a direct attack, could be worth such victims?

            What were Iraq and Afghanistan worthy rivals of the modern, numerous, many times superior quantity and quality of military equipment of the American army? Yes, the Georgians in 08 had more chances against us than Iraq and Afghanistan. Moreover, having such a superiority in power, having formed a coalition from their vassals, the Americans nevertheless bought all they could and weakened the enemy by 90% with green cut paper. And where is the equal fight?

    most of the surviving people will only think about what to eat and how to hide from radioactive fallout ... then a cold winter will come with the ensuing consequences ... I think two years after the war, humanity will be on the verge of extinction.

              In a real war there are no ratings, levels and other nonsense.
              Any armed adversary is a dangerous target.
              Everything is 50/50 in the war and not a single expert will say unequivocally whether the country is ready for war (victory) or not.
              Anything can happen.

    All this boils down to only one thing. You need to give money. It is because of this that America has always tried to take part in military conflicts, and in recent years it has completely unleashed them. It seems to me that America should reconsider its plans to enslave the world, and choose a different path. Otherwise, nothing good will come of this story. All the wars that the USA have fought over the past decade have ended in complete failure. Fortitude and courage cannot be replaced by any equipment or bombing.

    Only readiness / non-readiness is considered, from a technical point of view.

    But the point of view of morale, willingness to sacrifice and endure - no. The war is now going on; while economic and ideological, but war.

    From a technical point of view, the management potential of Amer’s armed forces seems to be the most vulnerable, and fundamentally. They rely heavily on space control, reconnaissance and positioning. Meanwhile, anti-satellite weapons (both Russia and China) are generally fundamentally insurmountable. Unable to mask or armor space military satellites. A massive blow by kinetic (and, especially, EMR warheads) completely blinds the Greatest Armed Forces in the world.

    EW tools lead to a similar effect, but at the local scale of a specific theater.

    Why should she be ready, this America? The actions of the American government are aimed at playing off countries and peoples, at unleashing civil wars, interethnic and interreligious conflicts. Here they are luminaries. They are preparing just such a fate for Russia. They just attacked the GDP, or it will still be when the mud flows to the regions, to Moscow. "Stop feeding Moscow!" "Stop feeding (83 regions - according to the list)!" (True, their guru Sakharov spoke about 56 states on the territory of Russia.)
    And note, any separatism on the territory of the USA itself is suppressed immediately, mercilessly, so that it is not disastrous.
    The recipe for the antidote is simple - do not succumb to provocations and control your own finances and industry, but this is already to our government. This is the problem!

    The fears expressed by the author are justified by the fact that most American citizens are accustomed to fattening in greenhouse conditions. And hardly anyone can call them to self-sacrifice. Let them say the magic word "please", and maybe Russia will share its experience of waging Patriotic Wars. Maybe after that it will come to the amerikosov on whom they rock the boat? And when transferring experience, you can also recall that Russia ended these wars on enemy territory.

    there never was (and is not now) "pre-war frenzy."
    When the war really begins, then they begin
    "pull up the people". Geography allows them to
    only a small regular army (approximately 1 million), a huge Air Force and Navy
    perform defensive tasks half a year - a year,
    and during this time they announce the mobilization and prepare reservists.
    Moreover, due to the huge (320 million) and relatively young population
    The mobilization potential of the United States is very large - about 100 million people.
    Those. They can prepare, equip and transport anywhere 10 million army
    for one and a half to two years.

The result can be very sad for the United States, because when their recent fosterlings understand that the United States is not able to stand up for themselves, then Americans will be driven everywhere.

    25 years of domination were not in vain for the United States. They too believed in their exclusivity, both of the nation and the armed forces, and began to insolently pump money from the military budget for suspicious improvements, ostensibly to strengthen the power of the armed forces. Also believing in their superiority, many exercises were conducted not as debugging interaction, but as demonstration shows for jackdaws and intimidation. Examples of this have been enough lately. So they believed, and became blissful (idiots).

        You might think that you are not aware of the fact that the Americans have paid a large bribe to some representatives of the officer command corps for "inaction".
        No one argues that their army is not combat-ready, but this army, apart from Vietnam, no longer had a serious enemy, where the mattresses were kicked. The remaining opponents were obviously weaker, both in terms of armaments and tactics. Spread rockets for 200 miles and feel safe - not a lot of heroism. But to face an adversary equal in capabilities or at least able to inflict significant damage - mattresses have no desire and prefer to do it with the wrong hands.

    I think that the Americans, pondering the consequences of the nuclear exchange, are primarily concerned not with the occupation of their territory by Russian troops. Most of all, they are afraid that an armed crowd from Central America will rush to them. They have something to present to their "elder brother" - this will be the death agony of lawlessness. And this frightens them no less than the first.
