US political analysts: complete failure of the US military industry

US political analysts: complete failure of the US military industry.

This hysteria is related to the fact that the United States sincerely believed that in the military sphere it is ahead of Russia. And for those, who are at the helm of America, it was unthinkable that Russia and China could catch up with us and become a real threat. This happened already before, when the US wanted to destroy the USSR and was wasting, spending, spending money on it. But now it’s quite different: trillions of dollars that the Americans have been pouring into the defense industry, were let down during the last 20 years. It’s just a complete failure.

              

Disproof

No evidence provided of "hysteria" over President Putin's recent speech before the Federal Assembly of Russia regarding Russis's new weapons of mass destruction designed by Moscow. No evidence of the failure of the US military industry. According to SIPRI, in 2016 the US military expenditure was $ 611 billion, Russia's $ 69,2 billion.

The Russian NTV TV-channel interviews an "American political analyst", an internet search suggests otherwise http://danielpwelch.com/dansshop.htm. In April 2014, Pervyi kanal TV-channel quoted the same person as "anti-war activist" when reporting about 400 mercenaries from the US, who allegedly were fighting against pro-Kremlin separatists in Donbas – disinformation that was used to justify the war that Russia provoked in Ukraine     https://rutube.ru/video/6361e8687fc55911d07b7594cee55623/ ; in 2015, in an interview with Russia Today (RT), he accused Ukraine of selling weapons to Daesh that also justified the war against Ukraine  https://russian.rt.com/article/131772.

Because of the collapse of the USSR, Russia lost 23.8% of its territory, 48.5% of the population, 41% of the gross national product, 39.4% of the industrial potential and 44.6% of the military potential – all these resources went to the former Soviet republics.

After the collapse of the USSR, Russia, which was known as the Soviet Union or Soviet Russia abroad, lost 23.8 percent of its national territory, 48.5 percent of its population, 41 of the GDP, 39.4 percent of its industrial potential (nearly half of our potential, I would underscore), as well as 44.6 percent of its military capability due to the division of the Soviet Armed Forces among the former Soviet republics.

          

Disproof

Fourteen former Soviet republics are unlikely to agree with these claims: during the period of the Soviet Union, all these resources belonged both to Russia and these nations, which all are independent states now.  Gorbachev resigned as Soviet president on December 25, and all Soviet institutions ceased to function at the end of 1991. According to Britannica, the main benefactor was Russia. It assumed the U.S.S.R.’s seat on the UN Security Council, and all Soviet embassies became Russian embassies. The Soviet armed forces were placed under CIS command, but it was only a matter of time before each successor state formed its own armed forces. Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakhstan became nuclear powers, but all, except Russia, declared their goal to be the destruction of their nuclear arms.
