dont look too much into this,i have already written of usa as just a stepping stone which is already sinking in a river.the choice is left to india to take advantage of this and use it to rise up,so goes for other asian countries which are more serious.this is more for show,whether if was biden or trump.the internal politics of usa wont allow for the political decisions and capability and money need for defence that will deter china,just slow it down.it is upto us to solve our own problems.this buys us time.DONT DEPEND ON THEM,BECOME A POLE IN YOUR OWN RIGHT.Whatever they are saying will make sense to us only after 10 years i guess.
- U.S Army seem to be focussed on pacific part of Indo-pacific, not much thinking happening on indo side of things.
- They seem be planning for mega cities as battlefields as well.
- New Long range strike weapons to take out the archer, not just focussing on the arrows.
- Creation of protective bubbles for forward troops inside enemy territory.
- New Vertical lift long range airlift capability.
- two brigades training in arctic.
The Army in the Indo-Pacific: A Conversation with General James McConville and General Paul LaCamera
The actions you see now are just inertia as polotics and decisions on the ground are down stream from values which are downstream from culture,demography,etc.the ddemography was changed slowly first,then the culture,the actions will soon be seen on ground to reflect this reality and this is just inertia from another culture and people.CHINA JUST NEEDS TO WAIT OUT USA LIKE A TEST BATSMAN AND SMASH THE ODD BAD BALL(TAKE ADVANTAGE OF INDIVIDUAL GAPS IN THE MEANTIME LIKE MYANMAR,ETC).
USA IS GOING TO BE JUST A BIG UK,BRAZIL HYBRID MILITARY,VERY HIGH EXPENDITURE FOR SO LITTLE EQUIPMENT ON THE GROUND AND BAD AQUISITIONS THAT WOULD BEAT EVEN THE BAD TIMES OF INDIAN ARMY WHICH WILL CAUSE DELAYS,DECAYING DEFENCE INDUSTRY,ETC.IT WILL HAVE AN INTERNAL POLITICS THAT IS NOT SUITED FOR TAKING ON BIG PEER NATIONS UNLESS CHINA DOES SOMETHING STUPID AND UNITES THEM.
