The Pentagon is afraid of Russia and China

Mark Esper, the US Secretary of Defense, has openly named Russia and China as his main strategic rivals.

This was reported on the Pentagon’s website, referring to his speech at the American centre of Rand Corporation.

Esper fears that both Beijing and Moscow are actively modernizing their armed forces and expanding their capabilities in cyberspace and space. For some reason, the head of the Pentagon believes that all this is being done to infringe on the “lifestyle of the US and its partners. He does not understand that countries are just ready to defend themselves.
