Two attack strategies: in the US they want to hit the Crimea and the Far East

According to the American journal Foreign Policy (Foreign Policy - Foreign policy”), The US administration is now considering new strategies to“ deter ”Russia and China, one of which involves an attack on the Crimea, and the other an invasion of the Russian Far East. It is noted that Washington is thus trying to prepare for the "era of great power rivalry."




The authors of this article clarify that “influential voices” in the US administration are promoting the idea of ​​“horizontal escalation and causing costs.” The essence of this venture is to use Washington's “almost unlimited” access to anywhere in the world to harm Moscow and Beijing.

For example, if Russia occupies the Baltic countries, Americans can strike at the Russian army in Syria or the Crimea. According to Washington, the threat of destroying forces and equipment stationed at a distance could force Moscow to abandon the attack on European allies. Moreover, from the material it is not at all clear why Russia should invade the Baltic states.

However, American "strategists" are considering a number of even more aggressive "containment" options. For example, attacking Russia or China to protect American allies along their "vulnerable periphery." In this case, we are talking about the Russian Far East and the western territories of China. It is also envisaged to capture the "strategic centers of gravity" (important economic and state facilities).

Moreover, the authors immediately emphasize that the above actions are extremely dangerous and have little chance of success. Moreover, they will have unpleasant consequences for Washington, as Moscow and Beijing have a very serious nuclear arsenal. In addition, they also have the ability to put pressure on the "corn" of the United States in different corners of the globe. So this whole concept is more like a man-made disaster.

    These Western sorrow strategists still can’t clearly understand for themselves that with any aggression against Russia there will be an instant and adequate response, powerful nuclear strikes at decision and control centers, and this is the continental part of the USA, it will first of all be guaranteed to be erased from faces of the earth.

    Complete nonsense, complete. Americans are utter nonsense, it would be better if they were laying eggs. laughing They began to frighten North Korea, but they were frightened themselves, they decided not to touch it. It was the same with Iran, they also decided not to get involved, otherwise it could be taken off. And the smart strategists from America have decided - we will dream of how we will attack Russia.

    You Yankees have something wrong with brains, if you have them at all. You look at the maps of the world, at your satellite images of the entire Russian Federation, at its size, and ask yourself a question, why do we need to "win back" this hemorrhoid, in the form of these three Baltic farms, despite the fact that we, Russians, live on 1/9 of the entire land mass of the earth, and several hectares of the entire Baltic region will not add pleasure to us, so live peacefully, build a tyn with Mexico, otherwise they will easily chop off your Texas state from you, and in which case, we will not be sprayed, and will immediately strike all over America, and a tenth of our strategic nuclear forces will be enough for that .... You are scared to death of a dozen missiles with nuclear weapons of Comrade Eun, and you get to the bottom of us with our thousands of nuclear weapons ... they are not like a country, but like a large ward №-6, in their desire to be the most "watching" on our planet, but this will no longer be, and it is high time for you to understand this.

    The road to the whales has its own skin in order to actually apply these plans. Another clowning suit, and nothing more. There were a lot of such heroes, but all was sad for them.

    People just work out their salary. They’re not making that up. It’s not for them to fight.
