“US military superiority has fallen to a dangerous level, where the country is likely to lose in the event of a conflict with Russia or China,” said the report of the Special Committee on the US National Defense Strategy.
In such a confrontation, US forces could face high casualties and equipment, the report said.
“The risk of defeat will be especially high if the US military is forced to fight on two or more fronts at the same time,” the Defense News reported.
Members of the Commission also assessed a number of potential undesirable scenarios of armed conflict for the United States, for example, North Korea’s attack on Seoul (South Korean capital).
According to the authors of the report, in order to successfully address these threats, there is a need for increased funding.
They added that the military superiority of the United States is no longer guaranteed, which has serious consequences for the security of the country.
Earlier, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) announced that in the event of war with Russia, the NATO countries will face serious problems in the transfer of military equipment and military forces.
The media also wrote that in the event of a war in Europe, the United States will have difficulty in moving troops to the theater and supplying them with weapons successfully because of the lack of back-up forces
