US Military Capability against a near-peer competitor

Are you suggesting Japan is still a pre-industrialised feudal state run by shoguns and warlords? Of course they’ve been westernised you twerp.
He-he-he... Dont mix up "westernisation" and "modernisation". Else, you should accept, that Brits, who drink tea and coffee, ride horses, use paper and compases, learn chemistry and algebra in schools are 'easternisated'.
Good luck with trying to annihilate the US, Russia will be a smoking ruin by the time it’s over.
May be, it will be acceptable price for crushing USA, better than alternatives.

Another funny article from the Septic degradants from "The National Interest". They suggest a new split of influence zones:
"Moscow’s meddling in Venezuela likely is at least partially designed to be payback for Washington’s intrusive, provocative policies in Eastern Europe. The ingredients, therefore, exist for a sensible agreement embodying needed restraint on both sides. U.S. leaders should inform the Russian government that they are willing to end their quest to bring Ukraine and Georgia into NATO and to cease all military connections with Kiev and Tbilisi—including weapons sales and joint exercises. Washington also should offer to end its “rotational” deployment of troops, planes, and warships in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea. In other words, Washington would be willing to respect a Russian sphere of influence in that region."

Striking a Deal with Russia on Spheres of Influence

First of all, changing Ukraine and Georgia or even the whole Europe to the largest oil reserves in Venezuela - is not a fair deal.
Hemispere to hemisphere (Eastern hemispere to Russia, Western hemisphere to USA) could be a fair deal.
But, we all know, that Yanks are untruthworthly. There will be no deal, even if they will promise to dismiss NATO and return Alaska.

And yes, Septic government is rather shizophrenical - by one hand they send diplomats in Sochi, by another they simultaneously send CIA saboteurs in Kiev.

No real surprises, but with something like this now in open source, hopefully western politicians will take notice, both to rectify the problem and to pause for thought before committing to the next military folly. That said, I wonder if 'the sources' might have a book coming out soon?

'In war games simulating a high-end fight against Russia or China, the U.S. often loses, two experienced military war-gamers have revealed. "In our games, when we fight Russia and China, 'blue' gets its ass handed to it," David Ochmanek, a RAND warfare analyst, explained at the Center for a New American Security on Thursday, Breaking Defense first reported. U.S. forces are typically color-coded blue in these simulations. "We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary," he said.

The US has been getting 'its ass handed to it' in simulated war games against Russia and China, analysts say
Would this be a"Bomber Gap" or "Missile Gap" RAND are promoting? As is traditional to do in the US.

I'd suspect the latter as the catalyst, but then the responsive way to destroy missiles is going to be from mobile platforms, et voila, you now need more bombers too. Industry is the winner again.
