The Pentagon urged to prepare for a war akin to World War II


The newly appointed Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, Charles Brown Jr. (August 6, 2020), who became the first black leader of this level in the history of the country's Air Force, called for preparing for something like the Second World War, writes the American edition of Defense News.


The findings of Brown and Pentagon experts were outlined in the report "Accelerate or Lose Change." In the opinion of the American military, the United States will wage a future major war with an adversary of comparable strength, which may result in gigantic losses. This war will not be like the conflicts that Washington has been involved in over the past few decades.

We need to be prepared to wage war with combat losses and risks to the nation more similar to those we faced during the Second World War

- the document says.

The chief of staff clarified that the United States will face a state with comparable military capabilities. Brown added that Washington's efforts have not yet yielded results in an arms race with Beijing and Moscow. He promised on September 14, 2020 to outline in more detail his vision for the future development of the US Air Force.

At the same time, the publication drew attention to the fact that Brown will have to face serious opposition from American lawmakers, who will categorically object to the closure of military facilities with outdated weapons systems in their districts. Defense News suggested that the bulk of funds for the modernization of the Air Force during Brown's leadership would go to Northrop Grumman. It is developing the new B-21 Raider heavy strategic bombers and Minuteman IV ICBMs (GBSD program).

    This Charles Brown, either does not know history, or is a great optimist if he seriously thinks that the losses will be similar.

      One, two orders here or there, what's the difference to him? After all, black lives are important!

        Blacks will be allies of America's adversaries. As soon as they are given a weapon, they will direct it against the "pale-faced" fellow citizens (and Obama will lead them))

          Is there skin color discrimination in the US when buying weapons? no Anyone who has the opportunity and desire in the states is armed to the teeth.

    Yes, they are up to logic and analysis like a blonde to the last page of quantum mechanics. Their task is to simultaneously intimidate everyone with "Russian tanks in the center of Washington" and immediately show what brave and invincible supermen in tights they are. The first is to get more money for military orders, the second is to justify these orders in the eyes of the plebs. As it comes to the confrontation, "face to face" begin to rush in zigzags from our patrol and beat until they shake their heads against the iron floor of their btra in an attempt to hide like an ostrich. Their entire military strategy is to foul and beat from afar, if they start a new war, then only where their sirloin will be away from danger. And such resource pastures are left to count on one hand.

    Skin color has nothing to do with it. When the world order of capital collapses, you need to unite your people under the national idea. Nationalism is the bond of any capitalist state. Transnationals generally don't give a fuck about this whole America. They don't care who they pay their taxes to. Shiz of Fear visits the military. Only our calmness will frighten them.

    Such a naive general. I compared. It is they who set up their fighters, raise the morale, they say, you will die, but not all.

    If US citizens are tired of living, then for a start they can start a war with North Korea, having received several dozen nuclear strikes on their territory. Then they can continue if they like Hiroshima on their territory.

    ... like World War II

    - it means that the Russian Federation will be at war with China, and the States will sell all sorts of nishtyaks to both!

      They won't wait. Rather, the US will have to fight China over US-occupied Chinese Taiwan.

    It seems that he has not heard anything about atomic weapons.
    But he probably plays basketball great.
