The head of the US Strategic Command, Charles Richard, made a statement about the possibility of a nuclear conflict between the United States on the one hand and Russia and China on the other. According to Richard, such a war could be the result of a global aggressive policyrecently held by Moscow and Beijing.
There is a real possibility that a regional crisis with Russia or China could quickly escalate into a nuclear conflict
- emphasized Charles Richard.
The senior US military added that the coming nuclear war could start in response to defeat in a conflict using conventional weapons and when a threat to the state or political system arises.
Richard believes that at a time when America is concentrating all its forces on the fight against global terrorism, the Russians and the Chinese are violating the principles of world law by initiating acts of aggression that have not happened since the end of the Cold War. This state of affairs should not remain without an appropriate response from the Pentagon. To curb the power aspirations of the Russian Federation and the PRC, the United States must intensify competition and not yield to the initiatives of these countries.
Charles Richard pointed to the intensive modernization of the Russian armed forces and the development of new types of weapons by the Kremlin, and also focused on the "danger" of increasing the strategic capabilities of Moscow and Beijing.
Russian netizens reacted to the aggressive statements of the American military leader.

Soldiers from America imagine the war as continuous bombing. Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki. Shooting from helicopters of wedding and funeral processions. At the same time, comfortable living behind a puddle. In our time, sitting out behind a puddle will not work. They don't understand why we are celebrating May 9 like that. We just know what war is
- Valentin Utenyshev explained clearly.
Until recently, this chapter, like its predecessor, whined that the US strategic forces were in a catastrophic state. So we'll wait a little longer, take a look at this tragicomedy

It seems that spring has not yet begun, but the Pentagon warriors have a seasonal exacerbation, again threatening a nuclear conflict. No matter how much they were told that Russia has enough warheads to wipe America off the face of the Earth, and the feeble-minded people itch

"Poseidons" on combat duty off the coast of America can cool the ardor of Admiral Charles Richard, if, of course, he is a sane and adequate person, which is doubtful

The Pentagon says in almost plain text that it will organize a "regional crisis" in these countries, thereby weakening or destroying the central authorities, as a result of which, in their opinion, there will be no response to their nuclear strike. Well, try it. Putin will not allow it. And if anything, then we do not need this world without Russia ...
- Viktor Chibis recalled the words of the President.
