WASHINGTON — The Pentagon is in the opening stages of “redesigning the force” around the challenges of Russia and China, the department’s No. 2 uniformed official said Tuesday — while warning that America may not be able to afford preparing for two unique problem sets.

The recent National Defense Strategy identified great power competitors as the major challenge facing the Pentagon, but Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, noted that the plans required to counter each nation are naturally “in tension with one another” for resources.

As a result of the focus on great power competition, Selva is working to build out a “global campaign plan” for both Russia and China, looking across the breadth of the U.S. military before assigning a combatant commander as the “coordinating authority for management” of the plan, in case a conflict arises.

The Pentagon is planning for war with China and Russia — can it handle both?


Washington, News Week and others are talking about War with the West. Is China to be the next World Super Power of the 21st Century? In fact they've been talking about it since last year from what I know. Lets add in the fact that China owns a hell of a lot in the West, it has billions to invest into things like massive Cities in the desert left void of Human life. Why? Boredom? Not likely.

I think something is coming, something is being planned and we won't know about it till it hits us in the face. Japan who hasn't had a Military to speak of in decades suddenly now being talked about on the Military stage, they would go along with China in a heart drop. Call it revenge. Russia i'm not too worried about but if it came down to it, they would take sides. They're playing war games with North Korea, another big Why?

It would seem China knows the art of war far better than anyone, and they know it. They know have more money and more push than we're allowing ourselves to believe.

We've had plans for how we would fight a war with both countries for a very long time. Those plans are continually being updated.

We have plans for a war with every country on the planet.
Sounds like the usual media warmongering to me.

Agreed but with madmen at the helm who knows everyone's future? I'm in the US, war is the last thing I want for family and friends.. Can't we all just get along? What's so strange about that?

Of course they would have a plan, it doesn’t mean they’ll carry it out, but it would be remiss to not have one.

It was revealed a few years ago that they have such plans for pretty much everyone, including close allies.

Its a damn discussion on the 'Why' of it. Does that threaten you? Will your sarcasm or your giant sized Ego save you from it?

Thank you. I want to know why they're going to lengths such as this and I realize war is big money. Do you think they're creeping towards a world system now to set up by say 2020? People aren't going to hail it in willingly.

Japan would not go along with China. They have been enemies for over a thousand years.
Recent joint military operations between Japan and the US was to streamline electronic warfare compatibility.
China got plenty pissed when the US "sold" Japan the most nuclear capable fighter bombers in inventory.
They are restricted for sale to pretty much everyone else.
China was alarmed at how quickly the Japanese navy rolled out a modern and capable defense force when the US said go for it .

Hence why reversed engineered technologies that build UFO & USO remain classified...

How many ufo does it take to command the air?
How many uso does it take to command the sea?
Of planet EA*RTH.

Well seeing as America nuked Japan during the last war, I'd say Japan would have no problem hooking up with an old enemy to get a little Vengeance. Some grudges last lifetimes.
