Let keep it simple, a US Marines perspective:
A: China and Russia have not been at was for 10 years under harsh conditions
- This allowed the US to sharpen its tactics
- Increase logistical efficiency even more so
- Pumped almost a Trillion dollars into defense, new weapons, x37, drones etc...
- Our Military knows what being at war is like, China and Russia do not
B: Logistics, no other country on earth could match us and keep a war going, supply lines etc...
C: US Military is the best trained in the world, because we have been honing our skills for 10 years
IMHO: The forced to fight Chinese Military and Russian Military would tremble if confronted with the US Military in full attack mode...because they
have not been at war in the last decade, no experience other than training...
Come on people get real...
First problem@ The United States of America can know longer sustain itself like once could. America is economically bankrupt, it owes trillions, and
0% of that debt has actually been paid back yet to the people its owned to!
China, and friends own some of that outstanding debt and without China's been there and helping and giving assistance.The United States would have
serious difficulties with paying the salaries of government employees. Is the United States military going to fight a war against China against the
background of them being penniless?
Second@ Chinese and the Russian military separately have been fighting Islamic insurgents domestically and outside their borders for many years now/
go on YouTube some of that fighting has been bitter and horrible. So to say their completely unprepared for war, its not logic my friend.
China and Russia have a proud military heritage going back many hundreds of years, an argument could be made when America was still in diapers, and
not yet a country, they were fighting someone! Honestly one can't overlook that history of military tradition to do so would be their enemies first
Now a trillion a year is unreal to spent on defense and does give America an advantage in today's world, But superior military technology alone does
not win wars, if that was true. America would have been dominant over everyone else since 1945, and won every war since than. America has not fought a
genuine well-equipped professional army since 1945. So to take on China or Russia. I don't see a winner from this only destruction and misery for
