Well, he's not wrong. US conventional forces are drastically superior to the Russians. This isn't even an opinion, it's fact. They're still
operating 1980's Soviet tech. Putin is trying to modernize his military, but as he does so are the Americans.
yup and that fact
is a fair chunk of the reason the US keeps loosing. the US is far too reliant on superior weapons
. superior weaponry
is only a part of the equation, and more a minor one than major. it is how one USES
weapons that is the key factor in winning. if advanced
weaponry was the key to victory, the Germans would have won WW2, the Americans would have won in Viet Nam, the Russians would have won in Afghanistan
etc. yet forces with advanced weaponry
have a habit of LOOSING WARS. and a large portion of that is due to bad strategy
and reliance on
"superior equipment". why do technically inferior
guerrilla forces do so well, especially against forces with superior weapons
i wonder did Russia learn from Afghanistan what the US has never learned?
