Сommander of United States Strategic Command, Navy Admiral Charles Richard, in an interview with the Judging Freedom YouTube channel, said that Biden could send American troops to Ukraine. The politician noted that he sees a tendency of preparation for direct US intervention in the SMO, according to him, this is dangerous and thoughtless of the United States.
“Unfortunately, I do think there is serious planning going on about the use of US forces in Ukraine. I think that is very dangerous and ill-considered [decision — ed], but it’s going on,” McGregor said.
The colonel also recalled that as the United States is a state with presidential form of government, Biden will be able to make such a decision without the consent of Congress, and everything will be legally justified.
At the same time, US Navy Admiral Charles Richard called the Ukrainian crisis «just a warm-up.» He was quoted by The Wall Street Journal.
«Russia’s invasion of Ukraine revealed the fading power of America’s military deterrent, a fact that too few of our leaders seem willing to admit in public» he said.
According to him, the ability of the United States to resist China can be compared to a slowly sinking ship.
«It is sinking slowly, but it is sinking, as fundamentally they are putting capability in the field faster than we are» Richard explained.
Worse still, the United States has lost the hypersonic race to China and Russia.
“We used to know how to move fast, and we have lost the art of that,” said Admiral.
