Pentagon Preparing to Confront China and Russia Militarily?
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
US rage to control other nations risks war to end all future ones if nuclear powers confront each other militarily.
China and Russia want peace, not war. United they match or exceed US military strength.
Russia’s super-weapons exceed the best in the West.
They include hypersonic, high-precision missiles able to deliver a thermonuclear payload against targets worldwide aerially, from land or submerged.
According to the Pentagon’s Stars and Stripes publication, the US army intends to transform itself into “a multi-domain power capable of operating as an ‘inside force’ within an adversary’s defensive zones,” a press release saying the following:
“Army Multi-Domain Transformation: Ready to Win in Competition and Conflict” explains how it plans to transform into a force “able to dominate adversaries in sustained large-scale combat operations by 2035,” adding:
“The United States Army faces an inflection point that requires innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship in the application of combat power.”
“This bold transformation will provide the Joint Force with the range, speed, and convergence of cutting edge technologies that will be needed to provide future decision dominance and overmatch required to win the next fight.”
Because of China’s growing prominence on the world stage — a nation threatening no one militarily — US hawks consider the Indo/Pacific their main challenge in their reckless pursuit to dominate other nations, a hostile agenda they’re losing to nonbelligerent China and Russia.
Inventing its own fabricated reality, the Pentagon claims that both countries “have become increasingly more assertive in an effort to advance their agendas, aimed at supplanting the US globally (sic).”
“By 2040 China and Russia will have weaponized all instruments of national power to undermine the collective wills of the United States, allies, and partners (sic), while simultaneously cultivating their own security partnerships.”
A transformed US army aims to “provide credible, survivable capabilities that undermine area denial stratagems” by China and Russia.
Unlike how the US operates, neither China or Russia seeks dominance over other nations.
Engaged in no wars by hot and/or other means like the US operates worldwide, they prioritize peace, stability, and cooperative relations with other nations, confrontation with none — notions US policymakers abhor.
Longterm Pentagon plans call for effectively merging all US armed service branches into a “joint force.”
The Pentagon intends to establish what it calls “resilient webs of communication, protection, and sustainment to rapidly close with our enemies in the first battle and win from the outset.”
Joint Force operations “must move away from synchronizing sustainment using archaic structures that are time and manpower intensive.”
“By 2035, sustainment nodes will be survivable and capable of rapidly moving logistics to enable the Joint Force.”
The Army’s “inside” land-based force will “maneuver rapidly, aggregating and dispersing as required” as a “low-signature” force.”
By 2028, the Pentagon intends being able to deploy US forces “to ensure (proper numbers) in the right place at the right time to meet the requirements of joint force commanders.”
Pentagon multidomain operations are being tested in military exercises.
So-called “great power competition” is part of US National Defense Strategy against invented enemies.
Instead of prioritizing world peace, stability, and working cooperatively with other nations for what’s mutually beneficial, the US perpetually plans for more wars.
Its rage to dominate other nations is why it poses an unparalleled threat to everyone everywhere.
