The Pentagon explained how the US was able to defeat the USSR in the Cold War

An American official told how the United States defeated the Soviet Union, but the winners themselves were not happy with their victory.

Defense News published material authored by Pentagon Deputy Chief Michael Griffin.

In his article, a representative of the US defense department said that during the Cold War, Washington, realizing that it does not have a superiority over the USSR in numbers, made a bet on development of technologies.

The development of technology, in turn, has enabled Americans to "implement principles such as personal freedom, the right to private property, free trade and open markets, transparency and accountability of the government, the rule of law and the sovereignty of nations."

According to Griffin, policy The United States during the Cold War was based on avoiding blood, as far as possible achieving its goals with the help of money.

The official notes that eight administrations of the White House adhered to this principle in a row, and in the end, it yielded results.

However, now the situation has changed. Nuclear weapons created as a result of technological development no longer give Americans any advantage over Russia and China, and summing up, Griffin bitterly notes:

Winning is great, except that the losers retreat, rethink, retrain and try to win again, while the winner thinks that the race is won once and for all. That is why the United States is now left behind in some aspects of today's rivalry between the great powers.

Surprisingly, recognizing its lag in a number of areas, the United States, nevertheless, is going to further aggravate relations with Russia and China, which they call the main competitors in military strategy.

    Hegemordor never defeated anyone, and the Cold War is another comic strip for fans of this genre.
  2. The Americans won as a result of stupid provocation - it was proved that in any American supermarket there are plenty of sausages and vodka out of turn.
    PS About prices, of course, were silent.

      And they didn’t say anything about quality ... On some wrappers it was necessary to write "used sausage".

        Have you tried Soviet sausage?
        1. I tried - in Moscow, they gave me a boiled sausage to the fray, which smelled of rotten, but was disgustingly slippery to the touch, brrrrrr ......
          Now even know how to fake!

            What is the provocation then? What sausage may not stink?
            1. So after all, even for such a stinking sausage had to fight, seriously! And when they showed us their supermarkets littered with grub and booze - some just went crazy, it was like that!
              And when prices were released on the night of January 15-16, 1992, the people came to the shops in the morning and saw prices that jumped 10 to 20 times, universal sobering began, but it was too late ....

    The American official is very sorry, already he, the “wretch”, also “rethought” - this doesn’t go to the grandmother, that the United States has already beaten and beaten, but still did not finish VelikoRossiya with EBN when they had such a great opportunity? ! winked
    In the "development of technology", corrupt traitors from among the natives, the Americans have no equal - he is right! Mikha Mechenyy - still from the "product of" American subversive "Judo technology"
