This article says that Russia's military is decades behind the USA's. I find that hard to believe. I thought their top of the line submarines were the equal of ours. YASEN and BOREI class for example. I hope the article is right, but I doubt it. Maybe the article is referring to other aspects of the Russian military, and not submarines. I also wonder if the medium range missles talked about is from a submarine, probably, but not sure.
Neither country is going to reveal ALL of the true capabilities of their weapons.
Any way, the only way to negotiate or enforce is from of a position of strength(GREAT STRENGTH).
Just head the president say in his State of the Union Address, that America needs to cease being on a permanent WAR FOOTING. If I understand what it means to be on a war footing(industry able to sustain war). Then I disagree with the president. Being on a permanent war footing is exactly what we need to do. Just because you keep up your war industry doesn't mean your on the attack. America needs to be always READY and ABLE to take on anybody with ease.
Thank god for GDEB and the all the people who dedicate their lives to building superior submarines.
