U.S. military leaders are concerned over the high possibility to face war with Russia. They said so at a recent seminar, where the Pentagon’s high-ranked commanders took part, wrote The Independent.
They admitted that any military conflict with Russia or China could be extremely lethal and fast. Due to the arms race that Moscow and Beijing have been practising over the last years, the U.S. could face the scenario that no one witnessed in the last 60 years.
The US faces existential threats from modern-states "acting aggressively in militarised competition," Lieutenant General Joseph Anderson, Army deputy chief of staff for operations, plans, and training, told the panel.
"Who does that sound like? Russia?" he asked.
The United States and Russia currently possess the world’s largest nuclear arsenals – 6,970 and 7,300 nuclear warheads, respectively.
