US political analysts: complete failure of the US military industry

Summary of Disinformation

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.



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.
