Pentagon updated operational plans

62
The military and political leadership of the United States edited its plans to wage future wars in accordance with "new operational concepts" that fully meet current changes in the situation in the world and the growing threats to America’s national security emanating from "revanchist" Russia, from increasing China's military power and also due to the endless chaos in the Middle East. “We conducted an audit of each of our battle plans,” Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter announced 20 on June 4, speaking at the annual conference of the New American Security Center (CNSA) called “The Legacy of National Security: Formulating a Plan for the Next President.”

CURRENT TASKS OF THE MILITARY OFFICE

Carter told the audience that he could not tell in detail about the specific changes that were made to the operational plans. “I'm not going to talk about the details. But if someone is able to evaluate and understand why I do not do this, then it is you, the participants of the CNS conference, ”the head of the Pentagon said. “But rest assured, they are relevant,” the minister added.

It should be noted that, according to domestic and foreign experts, the Pentagon operates in the framework of operational plans (OPLANS), the total number of which is about 70. Of these, 48 are plans according to which the US Armed Forces should act in certain situations.

But only five of these documents are called “full operational plans”, which envisage military operations of various sizes. Each of them is focused on a specific threat to the national security of the United States, that is, to a specific country that, according to Washington, is a danger to America’s national interests. These five plans also included the global nuclear war plan OPLAN 8044, which used to be called SIOP. Today, this plan appears under the number OPLAN 8010-12. Responsibility for the development and implementation of this plan is assigned to the US Strategic Command. In addition, it is developing plans for delivering conventional and nuclear attacks on North Korea and Iran (CONPLAN 8022-2), anti-missile defense (CONPLAN 8055), and an information warfare plan.

As the Chief Military Officer of America emphasized in his speech, “today's security environment is dramatically different from the one in which the current generation and even the previous one existed a little”. Carter identified five existing and emerging challenges to US national security. This, however, is not for anyone news, but they can not be repeated again.

In the first place, as always, is the need to solve the problem of ensuring opposition to the prospect of Russian aggression and any violent actions of the Kremlin, especially in Europe. Washington's next task is to create conditions for control historical the changes taking place in the vital Asia-Pacific region (APR), where Beijing's role is increasing, which, according to Carter, is "great." However, China's aggressive behavior cannot be rated in the same category. North Korea's nuclear and missile provocations pose a significant threat to America and its allies. Therefore, the United States is forced to strengthen its military contingents on the Korean Peninsula to ensure containment of Pyongyang and counter its aggressive intentions. Another important task of his department, Carter considers ensuring control over the aggressive actions of Iran and the elimination of its "harmful influence" on the situation in the Persian Gulf region. The last place in the list of tasks of the United States and its satellites in different parts of the planet, which was announced by the chief of the American military department, was taken by the fight against world terror, including the fastest destruction of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) banned in Russia.

Carter said that the recent shooting in Orlando, Florida, which had declared its commitment to ISIS by an extremist, reminded America that the violent militants of this state of violence and horror not only terrorize the people of Syria and Iraq, but also are ready to destroy American citizens, on its territory. This requires the anti-terrorist coalition of the West to take all measures to destroy the terrorists of this pseudo-state, primarily in Syria and Iraq, cut ISIS metastases all over the world and ensure the protection of American citizens from their bloody actions in the United States.

“Today we do not have the luxury of choosing any of these separate radically different threats. We must and will confront them as a whole in the entire spectrum of conflicts arising, ”Carter stated. He also said that the leaders of the military department in the current situation need to act more quickly and flexibly, because, as history has shown, the specialists of the American Defense Ministry "never managed to fully predict the strategic future." “Therefore, we must be prepared to confront a complex and uncertain future, in which new and unpredictable challenges may arise,” the minister emphasized.

The head of the Pentagon said that the United States will remain the unsurpassed military leader for several more decades. The key to this is requests for appropriations from the US Department of Defense in the 2017 fiscal year. According to Carter, these funds will help the US military not only to strengthen military positions and ensure the presence of military contingents in different regions of the Earth, but also ensure the superiority of the Pentagon on land, at sea and in the air. In addition, they will allow American troops to dominate in cybernetic and electronic warfare, in space, in the nuclear field, as well as in other areas of military activity.

NEW SCENARIOS FOR NATO

Carter devoted much of his speech to the North Atlantic Alliance. He once again announced the continued adherence of the United States to its obligations to NATO countries and emphasized that future military exercises and multilateral conferences of bloc members will be aimed at developing combat skills and general approaches to countering Russian military preparations.

“That is why NATO is adapting and writing a new collection of scenarios,” the American minister announced. According to him, it will include all the lessons learned by NATO warriors in the course of history, as well as measures aimed at re-forming the alliance’s combat-ready contingents into a new network structure capable of counteracting new challenges and effectively operating in cybernetic and hybrid wars, using forms and methods of waging conventional and nuclear wars and creating such a United Armed Forces (OVS) of the bloc, the state and presence of which in various regions of the planet will allow them to more flexibly and their Temporarily respond to any changes in the situation.

Carter stressed that the United States played a major role in organizing the new formation of the NATO Armed Forces - the United Force of Very Fast Response (Very High Readiness Joint Task Force). The military units of the countries of the bloc that are stationed in Europe and deployed in this structure will be deployed anywhere in the NATO theater of military operations during 48 hours. The number of this formation is 40 thous. Military.

“This is a real innovation. It is based on the obligations of most members of the alliance to provide a networked response to emerging crises. And the United States provides unique opportunities for this, including transport Aviation and much more, which will allow the United Nations Very Rapid Reaction Forces (OSFR) forces to act effectively as a network association, ”said the American minister.

At a meeting with NATO defense ministers recently held in Brussels, Carter announced that the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom would make a "major contribution" to ensuring Russian opposition in the future. He also stressed that specific measures in this direction will be discussed at the summit of the bloc, which will be held in Warsaw on July 8 – 9.

Carter also announced that in the financial year 2017, the Pentagon plans to quadruple allocations for the implementation of the European Security Initiative (The European Reassurance Initiative), launched in the 2014 year to increase the American military presence on the European continent. 3,4 billion will be allocated to events under this initiative. According to the head of the Pentagon, this amount of spending is due to the emergence of new threats to Washington’s European allies.

“Among other things, these financial resources will allow for the rotation of a standard armored brigade of a new model of the United States Army, whose units will move at their own speed to Northern Europe. All the necessary equipment and weapons for another will be delivered there. tank the brigade, which will be ready for use by US troops deployed in Europe, ”said the Pentagon chief. He also added that the new brigade will complement the two ground forces brigades already deployed in the northern part of Europe and the army aviation brigade, which has also begun to deploy in the region.

In his speech, Carter touched on the development of military cooperation with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region and the intensification of the fight against world terrorism, and above all with ISIS militants. However, he did not say anything new, but only repeated what he had already repeatedly voiced by himself and other numerous Pentagon officials from various tribunes.

But one fact here is impossible not to mention. 1 May 2014 in the US Senate passed two readings of the draft law No. 2277 “The Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014”, 2014. In this rather extensive document, the volume of which is 60 pages, everything that America has to do is painted to finally tame the aggressive Russia, stop further actions of its military units in Ukraine and prevent threats to other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia.

The first section of this document speaks of the need to strengthen US assistance to the armed forces of their allies in Europe and Eurasia, and also notes the need to intensify US efforts to strengthen the North Atlantic alliance. The draft law provides for the expansion of support provided to Poland and the Baltic countries. It points to the need to accelerate NATO’s efforts to build a missile defense system (PRO) in Europe. In addition, the law provides for the strengthening of cooperation between the United States and the Federal Republic of Germany in Europe and in other parts of the world in the field of regional and global security.

In the second and third sections of the draft law, measures are considered to contain further aggressive actions of Russia in Europe, as well as measures to expand the capabilities of Ukraine and other European and Eurasian states in countering Russian aggression.

Any evidence that this law was approved was not found by the author of these lines on the website of the American Congress. But it is abundantly clear that all the provisions of this law, which in fact declare at least the cold war of Russia, are very actively implemented by the White House.

    to confront the prospect of Russian aggression and any violent actions of the Kremlin, especially in Europe

    As I understand it, the pindos completely lost the edge, and they attribute their plans of aggression to us? What is the next step? I won’t be surprised if the explosion of the Yellowstone Super Volcano is recorded at the expense of the Kremlin ...

    Europe left completely without thinking people?

    This crisis of sanity has already ceased to amaze ...

    What's next? Will they shout that the Russians have enslaved the world and only an "exclusive nation" can save it?

    A very significant and important Act / Event is needed - so that these "exceptional" ones emerge from their protracted immersion into a parallel reality ... You need to bring them to your senses!

    I am ready for this for anything - for all this is already so much tired !!!!

        Something will be decided at the NATO summit in Warsaw in July. Apparently, we will be presented with an ultimatum. The Polish Minister of Defense recently said: "At the NATO summit in Warsaw, a landmark decision will be made, which should force Russia not only to abandon its aggressive policy, but also to leave the Ukrainian territories it seized ... For a long time, Russia thought it had the right to appeal this decision. Before its adoption, we have no reason to talk about anything. "

          Ami du peuple: Something will be decided at the July NATO summit in Warsaw.
          This summit will show what the enemies have prepared for us. But something can be assumed - for example (as a fantasy) the inclusion of ukhrai, Moldova, Georgia in NATO, or as particularly close lackeys. In Kaliningrad, as they said correctly, they will want to squeeze. A several-fold increase in the number of troops in eastern Europe. And like a verbal husk about unification before the threat from Russia and an increase in the budget for war. Something like this.

            The colonel took off his helmet and stroked the blond baby on the head, sitting in the arms of a thin tired woman. Then he rummaged in his pockets, pulled out the Teddy Bear in the North candy and silently handed it to the child. "Danke ..." whispered the baby, and her mother cried.

            The commander wanted to say something, when suddenly the nearest robot sniper came to life, instantly brought all his eight 20-mm barrels somewhere into a snowy wasteland and opened fire. After a second, the remaining robots of the sector joined him. Sirens howled on the wall.

            A woman with a girl in her arms screamed piercingly, pointing a finger behind the commander's back. He turned sharply and saw a creature rushing at him with a long forelock on his shaved head. The creature was rapidly squatting, folding its arms over its chest and throwing its legs far forward. One of his eyes burned violently in blue, and the other in yellow.

            The Colonel frantically tore his holster, realizing that he was no longer in time. The creature hissed, “Bandera come ...” and a rusty trident-shaped cleaver was already rained down on the colonel’s head, as the top module of the Tiger worked, programmed to remotely protect the crew. A laser beam cut the creature in half, and it collapsed at the colonel's feet, finally hissing in the upper half: "... - put things in order!"

            - Svidomo Walkers! Shouted the commander, putting on his helmet and grabbing the girl in his arms. “Everyone immediately behind the Wall!” Open the main gate!

            Svidomo Walkers were Bandera radicals who mutated after the disaster at the Zaporizhzhya NPP when they tried to disassemble a working reactor for non-ferrous metals. Walkers terrified all the Wild Lands from the Polish desert to the Donbass sector of the Wall. More than once, scouts found in the Wild Lands settlements of the Wild with residents, in parts rolled up in three-liter jars with the neat inscription "Smalets." And from their skin Walkers made big drums, which they dejectedly knocked on long winter nights, gathered at burning tires. It was extremely difficult to kill them, since they did not have a heart, and the brain was the size of a walnut.

          Based on new developments in the nutrition of the US Army, it has a very bad effect on the patriotic feelings of the Americans.
          Piss for breakfast

          While in the Russian army they are looking for money to buy sausages to soldiers, in the US they are concerned about research on the power of the military. Recently, they have developed a special freeze-dried food for difficult hiking conditions in hot countries. The peculiarity of this food is that it can be diluted with dirty water or ... with its own urine. The main task of the development was to lighten the weight of the equipment of the soldiers, in which water occupies a very large place. Now it is enough to carry bags of dry mixes, which are then poured with liquid and turn into a completely edible dinner of chicken and rice. These bags are filters that have the ability to keep out almost 100% of bacteria and chemicals. The liquid passes through the shell - thin layers of cellulose-based plastic, the gaps in which make up no more than 0,5 nanometers and reach the dry mixture almost sterile.

          According to representatives of the US Army, this invention will reduce the weight of the daily supply of food for the military from 3,5 kg to 400 g!

      The second and third sections of the draft of this law discusses measures to deter further aggressive actions of Russia in Europe, as well as measures to expand the capabilities of Ukraine and other European and Eurasian states in countering Russian aggression

      The devil is in the details. There are a lot of verbal noodles, various plans and, as it were, by the way, such an insignificant phrase for the American man in the street as the phrase: "restraining further aggressive actions of Russia ... ... of the Eurasian states". The Americans can be blamed for anything, but what cannot be taken away is that if something is written in the plan, they will, with stubbornness worthy of another application, embody their plans. Even if it is already clear that something is not right so that everything and everyone around is flooded with blood - due to manic "exclusivity", they do not recognize this and will push themselves to the last wassat
      And from the highlighted phrase it follows: Russia has not yet made aggressive (read unacceptable to Washington) actions. But it is planned that such actions on the part of Russia will be - after all, the plan says that she is an aggressor in the territory of Eurasian states request
      Accordingly, to citizens (we exclude all Eurasian states with which Russia does not border and does not raise the question of priority in national security in relations with them) such states as: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan - it is necessary to know and prepare that suddenly out of nowhere the State Department’s concerns, unrest and, as a result, aggressive Russia will appear hi

      Since the end of the Cold War, the US Defense Department has consistently received less money from politicians in the amount needed by the military to replace aging weapons, preserve technological superiority over the armies of hostile camps and solve many other tasks facing the national security of the country. This conclusion was recently made by independent experts of the American Enterprise Institute and specialists of the Foreign Policy Initiative and the Foreign Policy Foundation and the Heritage Foundation, after conducting a joint study on the adequacy of funds allocated by the American congress of the military department of america. According to the authors of this work, the US military budget is shrouded in a multitude of misconceptions, false assumptions and assessments that in no way correspond to the real state of affairs in various areas of the Pentagon’s activities. Experts called all this analytics myths.

    "The law provides for the strengthening of cooperation between the United States and Germany in Europe and other parts of the world in the field of regional and global security."

    I’m wondering, the United States everywhere focuses on strong cooperation with Germany. Everywhere - Germany, Germany ... Why do not they insert shaving everywhere? Yes, of course, those among them, like the Allies, also flicker constantly, but the main emphasis is on the Germans. Do Americans understand that Britain has no real influence in Europe (at least not like that of the Germans)? Or the main thing for them to breed us with Germany? So they repeat like a mantra? what The Union Jack just somehow somehow finally moved to the fringes of world politics and forces, even the French are trying to say something, the British are sitting quietly on a bump and not croaking.

        It’s stupid to argue who is more important: the United States with 330 million people and a GDP of 19 trillion and England
        from 60 million and 2.7 trillion

      IMHO, Germany did not leave the occupation, the main political background for creating a single EU structure came from Germany, after repeated visits by the Chancellor to the United States, for consultations. It is convenient, as convenient as holding a NATO bloc; these are provincial troops (feminine structures, irregulars), to be more precise. The main force of NATO is the United States, but they either hold command posts in these structures or send them from operational headquarters in Germany.
      Now about the UK, but rather about England. Always kept on the sidelines of military actions, even in the Persian Gulf war they played more the role of wedding generals. In Afghanistan, respectively. This is a safari for them. The main goal is pursued in the financial interests, this is their horse. And they are not shameful, if the scales are overweight towards anti-American sentiments, for example, to Russia or China, simply offer their friendship to the winner. These are not those who support the weak, so that later he can be defeated after the defeat of the enemy. Because they consider themselves hegemons and without official recognition.

        This is certainly true. But this is so until the moment when it becomes possible to receive irreparable damage. Knights, so to speak, do not fight until the last soldier, but fight until an acceptable result. Provided that if there is how to evade total destruction (footnote to a rat cornered). I vaguely imagine that they will courageously fight against Russia, and how can we fight these islanders, or rather, this beating of a baby cannot be called a war. This is a country of one blow, and selectivity of target places will not work in any way.

          Russia too. Both countries are very vulnerable due to the congestion of their capitals. In London, as in Moscow, too much population, power and finance are concentrated.

          In this sense, the United States is in a better position. They are very de-centralized.

    Well, this is understandable without further ado ...

    But the fact that the increasing military power of China in the APR is assessed as "excellent", and the No. 2 threat to the United States is North Korean missiles - this is a virtuoso brilliance of mental retardation ... And the desire to consider oneself cunning and clever ...

    The head of the Pentagon said that the United States will remain the unsurpassed military leader for several more decades. The key to this is requests for appropriations from the US Department of Defense in the 2017 fiscal year. According to Carter, these funds will help the US military not only to strengthen military positions and ensure the presence of military contingents in different regions of the Earth, but also ensure the superiority of the Pentagon on land, at sea and in the air. In addition, they will allow American troops to dominate in cybernetic and electronic warfare, in space, in the nuclear field, as well as in other areas of military activity.


    Well, in general - "Peace to your home!"

    America launches a new "Dove of Peace".

    The main thing is that mattress makers do not forget that no one will stand on ceremony with them. Like symmetrical responses, etc. Which is what they are afraid of. No one will think that NATO aggression in gayrope is one thing, and hegemony is another. Will fly to the main instigator immediately, and without options. And striped ears cannot do anything about it. Earlier it was necessary, good gentlemen. That would dismember Russia, as they were going to, would take away the strategic nuclear weapons by some kind of "International Control". And now it's too late. Since we decided to poke the bear with a stick, it was worth choosing a longer stick.

    I read the conclusion: Carter is an ordinary professional balabol, who doesn’t understand a damn thing either in strategy or in tactics. His main measure of military power is not even money on their own, but their quantity thrown into the military-industrial complex. Of course, money is one of the defining factors of defense, but ... Well, soldiers do not go on the attack for money. They go for their homeland, but not for money. And they are wretched, they will never understand this, therefore they will always lose all wars and battles to the Russian soldier. hi soldier
