Media: The Pentagon will seek an increase in the military budget due to the "Russian threat"

Pentagon chief Ashton Carter plans this week to present his proposals for an increase in the defense budget against the background of the growing power of Russia and China, reports RIA News message "The Washington Post".


Media: The Pentagon will seek an increase in the military budget due to the "Russian threat"


“The head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, is expected on Tuesday to submit a proposal for the military budget to the agency for the 2017-th fiscal year. In addition, the head of the US military should justify why he considers the rapid strengthening of technological and military power of Russia and China, as well as Russia's intervention beyond its borders, as a greater threat than the activities of terrorist organizations, in particular the Islamic State, ”the newspaper writes.

“... The proposals reflect Carter’s attempt to include in the focus of military attention not only insurgent conflicts after 2001 of the year, but also the most important threats from Russia and China. American officials admitted that sometimes the modernization of the armies of these countries exceeds (the modernization of the army) the United States, ”the newspaper notes.

"The United States intends to oppose the progress of Russia and China in the military sphere in the next decade," a Pentagon source told the newspaper.

“Almost half of the new injections that Carter will offer will be aimed at combating the growing threat from Moscow,” which “has demonstrated a desire to use its military power from Ukraine to Syria,” said the source.

It is also assumed that the budget will be allocated 4 times more funds to strengthen the US military presence in Europe. “Washington intends to expand the deployment of combat vehicles and other equipment, help the allies to strengthen the military infrastructure and train qualified military,” the newspaper writes.

            Pentagon. Obama and the generals discuss when it is best to attack Russia. They cannot come to a consensus when it is better to do so to win.
            We decided to ask those who have already attacked. They ask the French: "When is it better to attack?"
            The French answer: "We don’t know, but certainly not in the winter ..." Then they ask the Germans: "When to attack?" The Germans say: "We do not know, but certainly not in the summer."
            Dead end. What to do? Someone suggests - Let's ask the Chinese, they are the most advanced and cunning, always come up with something ...
            They ask: "The Chinese, when will we attack Russia to win?"
            The Chinese respond: “Right now, immediately. The Russians are building the Power of Siberia and the Turkish Stream, they’re also building the Vostochny Cosmodrome, they’ll start a bridge to the Crimea, they decided to rebuild BAM, they’re building new stadiums for the 2018 World Cup, they’ll master the Arctic - THEM AS FILMS NEEDED!

        Guys, imagine, well, maybe the Pentagon would achieve a reduction in the military budget?
        In general, this is not even news - routine. Not a Russian threat, so a Chinese one. not chinese. so Korean, though under Russia with China, more can be claimed. And soon, probably, the FBI will catch up with the growing terrorist threat and the NSA under something of its own, deeply hidden, will ask for something secretly. Everyday business.

Washington intends to expand the deployment of military vehicles and other equipment, help the allies to strengthen the military infrastructure and train qualified military personnel, "the newspaper writes.

      In my opinion, all the hysteria of the Pentagon is reduced only to an increase in spending on military needs! This is the whole point of this war, to get out more money! I can’t believe how in the USA they seriously expect to fight with Russia, the gut is thin! But to bite from different angles or to poison someone, it's in their style!

        The main thing is budget loot for the corporations of the American military-industrial complex and the expansion of the export of weapons of American manufacture. If at the moment there isn’t any war in the world, it must be started.

          Oh, what a fresh and, most importantly, original solution - to ask for a dough for the "Russian threat"!

          I wonder what needs the Pentagon asked for money for from 1991, when the "Soviet threat" disappeared and until 2001, when the "fight against terrorism" appeared? I think the Pentagon will not be given money to "improve mutual understanding" ...

      Yes, strong and weak have nothing to do with it. It's all about the money. If there is no military threat, then the mattress military will not receive a cent. And they want to eat and drink well. So all this hysteria with the Russian military threat is just for that. If mattresses were smarter, they would never have allowed the fall of the USSR.

      It's just that people got hold of power and dough. And since the sawing is the main method of modernization of the US army, the eyes of the "new head" are shining and the little hands are shaking. In general, nothing new, even the old slogans.

      Actually, it was so in the past, it is in the present and will be in the foreseeable future.
      And therefore, prepare the sleigh in the summer ... and the "tomohawk of war" - ALWAYS!

      It is clear that the US military budget is very bloated, but we would have to keep our own in the right framework.
      Only for this, the economy needs to be tightened up, the ruble must be "excommunicated" from the "green presidents", the fifth column must be liquidated, and ... there is no one.
      Already the current Twitter-government and "elite" is definitely beyond the power!

    Dear forum users, over the past 3-4 years in the media, and in all articles devoted to the army topics of foreign armies, specifically armaments in lice, the demand for an overestimated budget from governments is constantly passing by the red line. Moreover, the required amount exceeds the required requests of the ministries of defense of foreign states. So I want to ask, but where is the difference in the purchased equipment and the amounts received? Is it all stolen by private individuals? Well, do not believe me that this is possible.

    Yes, it’s scary to think that the American military budget is ten times higher than ours, Russia is surrounded by their bases on all sides, they have a pack of allies and yet we are the first threat to them. And they are aware in the Pentagon that we are still at -30 at stops we drink beer.
