 The chairman of the US Senate Federation accused Russia and China of challenging its ally network.


Reported that Dunford in Arlington, Virginia, held a meeting of military reporters and editors, said the United Statesnetwork of international alliances is the United States greatest advantage, but also our source of strategic strength. He pointed out that the network has been a great help to Washingtons ability to invest and maintain power when and where our national interests must be advanced.

We have the competitive advantage of being able to travel almost anywhere in the world, deliver people, supplies and equipment, and combine these capabilities to accomplish the task, the Defense Department quoted him as saying.

Deng Fude added that this is the core of competition among big powers. I think when Russia and China look at us, they will understand that our network of allies and partners makes us strong, he said. He pointed out that because of this, these countries are challenging the United States.

Overall, Dunford said, Russia is doing everything it can to weaken NATO, while China is doing everything it can to alienate the United States and its Pacific allies.

Strategically, Dunford said, Russia and China are trying to create doubts about the U.S. commitment to their allies, and in practice, they are developing the ability to confront U.S. dominance. He added that these real threats included the development of new maritime capabilities, offensive network capabilities, electromagnetic spectrum and anti-space capabilities, as well as the modernization of nuclear and strike capabilities.

These capabilities are designed to strike where the U.S. military is weak, or at the junction of the war zone, he said.

When we think about the deployment of U.S. troops, the first thing we have to understand is the fact that we are facing great power competition and that we have to solve this problem globally, he said.

According to a report by the U.S. Defense Department in 2017, China is also expanding its use of foreign ports in order to pre-deploy the necessary logistical support and adjust and maintain its deployment in the Atlantic, Indian and Mediterranean oceans and other remote areas. In a 97-page report to the U.S. Congress on Chinas military and security development, the U.S. Defense Department said that the growing international economic interests of the Chinese government are increasingly demanding that the Chinese Navy carry out activities in more distant waters to protect Chinese citizens, investments and vital maritime routes. As a result, the Chinese government is likely to seek to build more military bases in countries like Pakistan that maintain long-term friendly relations with China and have similar strategic interests, as well as a precedent for hosting foreign troops, the report said.
