US officials, military officers and mainstream media are developing their efforts to paint Russia as the arch-enemy of the US.
Russia remains the only country in the world that has the nuclear capabilities to destroy the US and therefore it presents the existential treat tothe US, US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said in congressional testimony on April 2.
“Because of Russian nuclear capabilities they are the only country on Earth that is capable to destroy the United States,” he stressed during a meeting of the US House of Representatives Armed Services Committee.
He continued by saying that Russia “remains the only current existential threat to the United States.”
Milley added that Moscow would try to undermine NATO as an alliance and would work to challenge the US in all regions around the world, including the Arctic.
He stressed that Moscow is seeking to return the great power status, which it has lost after the collapse of the USSR.
