Such conclusion was drawn by the interparty commission of military experts appointed by the congress. According to authors of the document, available resources will not be enough to ensure a victory over the large global player and to constrain other opponents the American military.

The interparty commission of the American military experts appointed by the U. S. Congress came to the corresponding conclusion. Details are given by CBS. In the report it is said that the USA can suffer "unacceptable losses" or even to lose in a case of the conflict with Russia or China. Experts consider that the strategy of national defense of the USA is in many respects based on disputable prerequisites and the weak analysis, and available resources are obviously not enough to ensure a victory over the large global player, at the same time constraining other opponents.

of the Reason of reduction of opportunities of the Pentagon on air of CBS was sounded by one of authors of the report and the ex-deputy director of CIA Michael Morell: — Main reasons two: internal and external. External consists that our main competitors — the speech, of course, about China and Russia — some time ago began to invest in conducting traditional war, and we in 17 years wallowed in anti-terror, fight against insurgents and nonconventional war. So we lagged behind. Other reason — the sequester of the budget in 2011 which considerably cut down military expenses. These two things led to a present situation.

— But the USA all the same spend 716 billion dollars a year for defense. China — 165 billion Russia — 60 billion. What do we do not so?

Let's imagine a situation that China performs sudden operation there. Enough forces will be very difficult to throw the USA there, besides China invested in arms on access restriction. As a result we could carry out counterattack if we mobilized the nation, and could even win this war — but with huge expenses. All this reminds me uncountable strategic and prospecting reports with preventions in anticipation of September 11. All of us remember, than everything ended. In the report the view of the commission of threats and advantages from Moscow is in detail painted. In particular, experts point to aspiration of Russia to regional hegemony, nuclear and rocket modernization, the strategy of information war and Vladimir Putin's readiness to take the risk, leaning on the strengthened Russian army. The publication of the report is tied to preparation of the new defense budget of the USA. Now it exceeds 700 billion dollars that is four times more than an indicator of China and more than in ten more than Russian. Experts of the commission insist that
