REPORT: Pentagon Updating Possible War Plans Against Russia For First Time In 24 Years
Since the end of the Cold War, Russia and the U.S. and U.N. have worked together on a number of issues. However, since Vladimir Putin rose to power things have begun to change.
Moreover they have begun to change drastically in the last couple years with the events in Syria and Ukraine.
Now, according to a report by Foreign Policy, the Pentagon is reviewing and editing its war strategy against Moscow for the first time since the end of the Cold War.
These strategies are not uncommon and even exist of our closest ally, the United Kingdom. However, with Russia’s latest moves in Syria, the timing of these revisions raise serious eyebrows.
Do you think we’ll be at war with Russia within 10 years? Sound off in the comments below!
From the International Business Times:
The United States is updating contingency plans in the event of a war with Russia, the first time the U.S. Department of Defense has had to review its wartime policy against Moscow since the end of the Cold War in 1991, according to a Foreign Policy magazine report Friday. While Russia has been a partner country with the U.S., Europe and the U.N. on certain international projects over the last couple of years, increasing tensions over the Ukraine and Syria conflicts have forced the hand of Washington’s top defense policymakers to amend and review the war plans.
“Given the security environment, given the actions of Russia, it has become apparent that we need to make sure to update the plans that we have in response to any potential aggression against any NATO allies,” said one senior defense official familiar with the updated plans to Foreign Policy.
