Military Report Raises Prospect of War With Russia, China

“A somber report released Wednesday by General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, warns of a ‘low but growing’ probability of the US fighting a war with a major power, with ‘immense’ consequences.” The Guardian reports.  

“Russia has ‘repeatedly demonstrated that it does not respect the sovereignty of its neighbors and it is willing to use force to achieve its goals’, the 2015 National Military Strategy says… And the report expresses concern about states developing advanced technological capabilities that are causing the US military to lose its edge in that field.”  

“And faced with non-state adversaries like the self-proclaimed Islamic State group that has seized significant portions of Iraq and Syria, Dempsey warned of long and complex fights ahead.”
