The US administration insists on leaving the wording in the bill that missile defense is not directed against Russia

30
The White House issued on Tuesday a statement in which it insists that the Pentagon’s budget law for 2017 g preserve the following wording: the missile defense system "is not aimed at strategic deterrence of Russia and China," RIA News.




“The administration welcomes continued support by the Senate Committee on Armed Forces of national missile defense programs. However, it seriously opposes one of the amendments, which removes the reference from the original version that the system is limited, ”the report says.

"The inclusion of this mention is aimed specifically at showing that the US missile defense system was created and deployed to counter attacks on the part of Iran and North Korea limited in number and complexity, and is not aimed at strategic deterrence of Russia and China," the White House said.

"Presidential advisers (US Barack Obama) will recommend that he veto the bill if he gets it for signature," they promised in the administration.

In addition, the White House "seriously objects to many amendments to this bill, which reduces the ability of the US Department of Defense to implement the defense strategy proclaimed by the president, as well as the ability of the administration to ensure national security and foreign policy."

In the bill, in particular, “an attempt was made to prevent the closure of the military prison in Guantanamo, to limit the cooperation of the USA and Cuba, there are also amendments that impose arbitrary restrictions on the size of the personal composition of the presidential National Security Council”.

The administration also spoke out against the provisions of the bill that “will limit the powers of the Ministry of Defense to use RD-180 rocket engines and prevent the Minister of Defense from making exceptions in this direction to ensure national security interests.”

In addition, they "prevent American companies from making competitive offers."

“The authority to use the RD-18 engines up to 180 is necessary and appropriate for a rapid and permissible transition to new in-house production capabilities for engines that are currently being developed,” the statement said.

      Whatever they write in their laws, it’s all a fake anyway. At any time convenient for themselves, they will wipe any law for their own benefit. And this ostentatious chatter is just for blurring real facts and goals before the public.

        The wording of the US White House that the missile defense system "is not aimed at strategic deterrence of Russia and China" is not worth the damn egg!
        It is necessary to be guided by the opinion of Russian military professionals about the military security of the Russian Federation.
        Politicians in such matters cannot be trusted! Let’s recall Mishka Gorbachev! Therefore, all assurances about the peaceful intentions of the United States in Europe from all kinds of corrupt politicians should be sent in 3 letters.

      “Not aimed at strategic containment of Russia and China”

      But you never know what is written in the draft budget. The fence also says "Tsoi is alive!", But behind it is a construction site.

      The wording says nothing, you can write anything, the question is: in fact, what? Americans, as always, say one thing and do another - they have no faith.

    The generals, and especially the missiles, will not care for some sort of scribble, in which case.

    And we immediately believed such "guarantees", the realities show something else.

    missile defense system "is not aimed at strategic deterrence of Russia and China"

    Well, I didn’t expect the USA to tell the truth. The logical question is, why the hell did you build it then?

    We do not care. After all, our air defense, OTRK, KR and Strategic Rocket Forces, as everyone knows, are directed against the Martians.

    Well, if it’s not directed against Russia, then what can’t this be documented?

    Yeah. It remains only to convince us that we cannot read.

    After Obamka said that the Americans should make the rules, then these "hooky subtleties" do not really matter. Today they wrote one thing, and tomorrow there will be an amendment to this wording, which will turn the whole meaning around.
    So all these "formulations" are bullshit. The main thing is concrete actions that are clearly anti-Russian in nature.

    Missile defense is certainly not directed. It's just that in a military conflict, it becomes a missile countermeasure system and will include both the interception of our missiles and the attack. When it becomes directed, then there will be nothing to talk about. After the test tube with Hussein's "chemical weapons" their words should be laughed at in front of the whole world. Or even not to react.

    What passions flared up in the White House because of the wording! They would write right away, saying that we unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty because we decided that Russia is Tryndets. Tried in Yugoslavia - rolled. Then who is shy? All of their own. Exceptional Democrats.

    Here the Americans are stupid, but write what you want, but Iskander and Points with Calibers are already aimed where necessary. At least treat Mike Bohm, lover of Russian proverbs. Mike bring to your Administration the thought "On the fence x .. it is written, and there is firewood." It doesn't matter what is written, what really matters.
