A war between the United States and Russia or China will end in global catastrophe. Therefore, such conflicts in America prefer to avoid. General John Hayten, the deputy head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, said this in a podcast recorded for the Brookings Institution.
General Hayten stressed that any military conflict between the United States and Russia risks turning into a nuclear one, and this will turn into a catastrophe for the whole world. If it comes to this, then the United States is unlikely to have any advantages, the American expert believes.
According to the general, the Russian nuclear forces have already been completely modernized, which cannot yet be said about the American ones. And the process of their renewal is going slower than that of potential adversaries in the person of Russia and China.
Hayten noted that today the US strategy should be based on the exclusion of any possibility of a military conflict with China or Russia, which will protect the planet from a nuclear catastrophe.
