US Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley said that the US is ready to “destroy” its enemies, referring to Russia.
The US is ready to “destroy” its enemies, Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley said last night, referring to Russia.
“I want to be clear to those who wish to do us harm….the United States military – despite all of our challenges, despite our [operational] tempo, despite everything we have been doing – we will stop you and we will beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before. Make no mistake about that,” media quoted Milley’s words.
He also noted that other countries, including Russia, had taken advantage of the U.S. being focused on the war on terror.
“Other countries – Russia, Iran, China, North Korea – went to school on us,” the General said. “They studied our doctrine, our tactics, our equipment, our organization, our training, our leadership. And, in turn, they revised their own doctrines, and they are rapidly modernizing their military today to avoid our strengths in hopes of defeating us at some point in the future.”
According to the military official, the next major conflict would be much more lethal than anything that the US Army has experienced at least since World War II, and would include military action in “highly populated urban areas.”
“Make no mistake about it, we can now and we will … retain the capability to rapidly deploy,” he said, “and we will destroy any enemy anywhere, any time,” the Army Chief concluded.
Milley made it clear, whom exactly he meant, by quoting the words of a senior Russian official, who said that “Russia can now fight a conventional war in Europe and win.”
The statement was made in connection with rising tensions between the two countries.
Forty million Russians from all sectors of the Russian government are currently participating in a “nationwide emergency drill that will wargame ‘evacuation’ procedures during a national crisis.”
As director of the Russian Civil Defence Department, Oleg Manuilov, noted, the exercise is a test of “how the population would respond to a ‘disaster occurrence’ under an ‘emergency’ situation.”
Last week, huge underground nuclear bunkers were revealed by Russian officials. The bunkers had been built to provide shelter for 12 million population of the city.
In addition, also last week, the Zvezda TV-channel, run by the country’s Defense Ministry, also warned citizens that nuclear conflict is on the horizon.
“Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow,” the TV-channel reported.
