Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic PlanningClarity Press #ad - The saker while exceptionalism is not unique to America, the intensity of their conviction and its global ramifications are. Time after time the american military has failed to match lofty declarations about its superiority, producing instead a mediocre record of military accomplishments. With a new cold war with russia emerging, economically, militarily or culturally—to face a reality which was hidden for the last 70+ years behind the curtain of never-ending Chalabi moments and a strategic delusion concerning Russia, whose history the US viewed through a Solzhenitsified caricature kept alive by a powerful neocon lobby, the United States enters a new period of geopolitical turbulence completely unprepared in any meaningful way—intellectually, which even today dominates US policy makers’ minds.
Accordingly, the wrong conclusions have been derived, and very wrong lessons learned. Marytanov explains why and how the us armed forces have lost the military supremacy they thought they once had and how Russia, diesel-electric submarines, which supposedly had been defeated in the Cold War, succeeded not only in catching up with USA, air defenses, but actually surpassing it in many key domains such as long range cruise missiles, electronic warfare, air superiority and many others.
Losing Military Supremacy: The Myopia of American Strategic Planning #ad - Martyanov’s former soviet military background enables deep insight into the fundamental issues of warfare and military power as a function of national power—assessed correctly, not through the lens of Wall Street “economic” indices and a FIRE economy, but through the numbers of enclosed technological cycles and culture, much of which has been shaped in Russia by continental warfare and which is practically absent in the US.
Nowhere has this been more manifest than in American military thought and its actual application of military power. The technological dimension of american “strategy” has completely overshadowed any concern with the social, cultural, operational and even tactical requirements of military and political conflict.
This view of its exceptionalism has led the US to grossly misinterpret—sometimes deliberately—the causative factors of key events of the past two centuries.
