Kedmi assessed the likelihood of a full-scale US conflict with China


The likelihood of a full-scale war between the United States and the PRC is very small, but if such a scenario is realized, America will suffer significant damage. Israeli political scientist and military analyst Yakov Kedmi talks about possible events in connection with the hypothetical military confrontation between Washington and Beijing on the ITON-TV channel.


If war breaks out between the Chinese and the Americans, the latter could pay dearly for the geopolitical ambitions of their leaders. Even without the help of Russian nuclear weapons, China is in a position to inflict significant damage on the United States.

The United States can attack China and pay for it with all bases in the Pacific Ocean and destroyed American cities

- the expert believes.

Realizing that their military superiority is illusory, the Americans are acting against the PRC using non-military methods, but they also do not bring the expected results. In response, Beijing builds up economic relations with other countries and receives from them tangible economic benefit.

If we imagine the situation of Russia's withdrawal from the game and the sole military confrontation between China and the United States, the latter will be able to destroy the PRC, but at the same time they themselves will suffer tangible damage and cease to be a strong power. At the same time, Yakov Kedmi considers the United States to be quite vulnerable.

Several cities on the West and East coasts - that's all

- the political scientist notes.

Kedmi is confident that in the event of a full-scale conflict between the United States and China, Russia will not stand aside and will strike a powerful blow at America, since the United States in such a situation will threaten the security and national interests of the Russian Federation.

    Something stupid. And poor Kedmi is being used as a pawn. He clearly said war IS LITTLE. But. The headline is China and the United States. and in the text suddenly appears the Russian Federation .. Aggression against the United States is aggression against NATO. This means that China and the Russian Federation will have to destroy the Floor of the World and Remain Alive. It is surprising not to know the author is so simple. Or the author keeps us for FOOLS. But let it be on his CONSCIENCE. Unless, of course, he has it.
    This is the beginning of World War Three.
    More. Very strange. War, but only the United States has losses .. Or is China larger than the United States and there are fewer people living there than in the United States?
    There will be no war between China and the United States.
    Let me remind you that the USSR VM2 cost 27 million. China under 40 million.
    Therefore, Kedmi is right. War is unlikely. And all the talkers who are for the War in the trash.
    Israel or Turkey will also be for China and Russia in this war? Joke)))

      I advise you to watch the 2018 film Occupation, filmed in the West, so that you do not harbor illusions that NATO will collectively rush to die under nuclear warheads protecting someone out there, including the United States. Your shirt is closer to your body, there are no bad people to die, including for your Estonia.

        When Hitler and Stalin in 1939 decided to destroy Poland, these two comrades also thought that no one would stand up for the Poles, but England and France stood up.
        And the NATO charter presupposes that in case of aggression against any NATO member, all NATO enters into a war with the aggressor.
        This has not been tested yet. But there are no people willing to check it yet. So sit down.

          And how did someone really stand up for Poland? Yes, no one in any way. By the way, Poland itself, together with Hitler, occupied Czechoslovakia, so no need to try to portray the gentlemen as white and fluffy, they are still animals. By the way, the first concentration camp in Europe was created not by Hitler and not by Stalin, but by Poland!

            The first were in South Africa. But the first does not mean the main. Germany and the USSR were still the main fans of this technology.
            If you are so literate, then why did the USSR not at one time stand up for Czechoslovakia and didn’t slap the Germans and Poles on Musal? The USSR vowed to help Czechoslovakia in case of aggression against it. But when it came down to it, they quietly let everyone down on the brakes. So that's it.

              The first in South Africa was opened by England, and in Europe, the first concentration camps were opened by Poland and the Russians were destroyed there, so the Poles did not scold Russia, and the Poles occupied Czechoslovakia along with Hitler. The USSR tried to conclude an agreement with Britain and France, but they refused ... and Czechoslovakia did not turn to the USSR for help ... The Czechs are generally big fans of surrender.

                      Well, let's say you took over Nazism from Hitler. You and Hitler gave six and after the collapse of the USSR, Russians were killed in their countries, or were engaged in discrimination against them on a national basis. As for the peoples, for example, Russia bought your Estonia from Sweden for gold, so either return the money to Russia, or leave our land for Sweden, or even further away. And at the expense of garbage, Russia left you a bunch of factories, and you ruined everything, out of a great mind, or out of stupidity ?! Just do not write that the goods were uncompetitive. The same ocean radio receivers today could give odds to any Chinese, but not with your talents ...

    There will be no war with the massive use of nuclear weapons by the United States on the territory of the PRC even if the PLA lands in Taiwan.
    The strategy was outlined by Vladimir Putin when he said that the Russian Federation would not be friends with anyone against anyone.
    The United States is doing everything possible to inflict the maximum possible damage on the national interests of the Russian Federation in all spheres - economy, politics, finance, sports, for which they use, in addition to sanctions, military provocations such as the supply of weapons and joint exercises with the neighboring states of the Russian Federation, the invasion of US warships into territorial waters RF or practicing a nuclear strike against the RF with B-52 bombers from the territory of Ukraine, not to mention the NATO reconnaissance aircraft and drones constantly patrolling along the RF borders.

          If there is nothing now, then all the more so then nothing will be. See the rates of economic development of the Russian Federation and the United States. The Russian Federation with its 1 - 1,5% growth per year lags behind the States by half. The population there is growing by two million a year, and in the Russian Federation by half a million a year minus.
          If the Turks are everywhere where the Russian Federation can slow down, what can we say about the United States.
