Carter again took Russia first place among the existing threats.

39
Speaking at a conference of the United States Naval League, Pentagon chief Ashton Carter put the Russian Federation in first place among all the challenges with which the country is being packed around the world, reports TASS.


Carter again took Russia first place among the existing threats.


“We now have as many as five major, immediate and developing challenges. First of all, we are opposing the prospect of aggression from Russia, especially in Europe, ”
said Carter.

He then referred to "vital changes in the Asia-Pacific region - the most important region for the future of the United States." Here, “the rise of China is in itself a normal phenomenon, but some actions by the PRC, primarily in the South China Sea, cause serious concern to the United States and its allies in the region,” he said.

The third task of the Pentagon is “to strengthen the forces of deterrence and defense in the face of the remaining nuclear ambitions and continuing provocations by the DPRK”.

“Fourthly, we are restraining Iranian aggression and harmful influence in the Persian Gulf region,” Carter noted.

Well, he called the fifth problem for the United States "countering terrorism, including the early defeat of the Islamic State terrorist group."

Carter is also concerned about the successes of Russia and China, "modernizing their armed forces in order to eliminate the technological gap with the United States."

    The eternal "Groundhog Day" of some sort for Ashton Carter and the American administration.
    Their entire vocabulary is not more than three dozen, as in Ellochka the cannibal. Probably bored not only us, but also the American inhabitants. They pay no more attention to all this verbiage than to the crows croaking on a tree.

      “We now face as many as five large, immediate and developing challenges.

      You can’t say better:
      Five Reasons
      "The first reason is you
      And the second is all your dreams
      The third is all your words
      I hardly believed them.
      The fourth reason is a lie
      Who is right, who is to blame - you can’t make out,
      And the fifth reason is pain ... "

        Until China has overtaken Russia in strategic nuclear forces, Russia will be the No. 1 threat to US hegemony plans. In the coming years, Russia will unfortunately move to the "second place" among the US threats - because of the growing economy and potential of China, supported by the development of strategic nuclear forces and other technologies

        But with the successful integration of the EAC, this economic and defense alliance can move China in priority

        In any case, the West and the US have 2 obstacles to full domination - this is the RF-EAC - and China

        It seems to me nothing unusual, they have such a tactic - how to do it wherever, they immediately start shouting that Russia will kill everyone now in order to divert attention,
        for example, from refereeing at ev-2016

        Fuck with him, with EB, I would like to finally find out, but with Boeing what?

        Here the British general pours gasoline into the fire:

        Quote: PolitExpert

        General Schireff says that the first thing Russia will take over Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The military is convinced that a nuclear war will begin in the next six months. The general believes that the threat should be stopped as soon as possible and strengthen the NATO grouping in Eastern Europe
        .


        And at the same time:

        Quote: media
        British parliamentarians await Pushkov in London to ease tensions with Russia


        British scientists should study this phenomenon

      Most interesting, he is right. Just the justification of the Russian threat is false, as is their entire democracy.
      Russia is the only real threat to US global dominance. It is Russia that can put an end to world American lawlessness, to which the shadow government of the Anglo-Saxons aspires.
      As Hugo Chavis used to say - it smells of sulfur there

      They hide their greediness, because they say that they will "restrain Russian aggression", they are world saviors! And Russia has no right to its policy, it is aggression in their language. So they sneak out secretly.

    In fact, he's right. Who else can resist American shameless hegemony in the world except Russia? Right. None. And he is aware of this. Moreover, he practically openly admits that IS is not a threat to them, and it never was, because the child does not argue with the parent. He simply could not honestly say that we would have long ago taken Russia, like Yugoslavia, into parts and then taken into one snout, but we are afraid that Russia, driven into a corner, could show us "Kuzma's mother", after which no "European values" and we will no longer need energy resources. Like, after that, we ourselves will shine like light bulbs, current without electricity. And not for long. And by promising aggression, he meant a retaliatory liberation campaign. We have such a centuries-old tradition - we end all big wars in foreign capitals. He seemed to be flipping through history. In the course ... And what else can you scare the Europeans with? Not migrants. They themselves are looking forward to them, because there are a lot of homosexuals among Europeans, and here are fresh, temperamental guys from Africa and Afghanistan. And the Russian, he will not fuck, he simply and humanely turns his head away with one person, pulls out his legs for another - no orgasm. Therefore, it really is a threat, which means that it is easier for a European to part with money in the Rockefeller Foundation. So, in vain you accuse Edik of lying. All the garlic ...
