USA “gets ass handed to it” in WW3 simulations with China, Russia: analysts say

Laura Widener, writing for American Military News, outlined a chilling prediction from the RAND research organization that the United States would not survive in an all out war with Russia and China.

Widener writes: The U.S. repeatedly “gets its ass handed to it” in World War III simulations, according to the global research organization RAND.
“In our games, when we fight Russia and China … blue gets its ass handed to it,” RAND senior researcher David Ochmanek said during a panel discussion at the Center for a New American Security think tank last week.

“We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary,” he added.

Ochmanek said the scenarios often end with the “red” – Russia and China – destroying U.S. fighter jets while still on the runway, sinking U.S. warships, and destroying U.S. military bases and other vital military systems. “In every case I know of, the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense and an expert war game analyst. “But it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”

U.S. aircraft carriers are also considered more vulnerable to enemy attacks. “Things that sail on the surface of the sea are going to have a hard time,” Ochmanek said. The Chinese would “attack the American battle network at all levels, relentlessly, and they practice it all the time,” Work said. “On our side, whenever we have an exercise, when the red force really destroys our command and control, we stop the exercise and say, ‘Let’s restart.’”

There is a widespread assumption that paints America as a leading military power who wins handily in any wartime scenario, Ochmanek pointed out. However, he noted that this isn’t the case, and people are shocked to learn the truth – that all five warfare domains are contested.

“We do not have air superiority over the ballast space at the outset of these wars. We do not have maritime superiority. Our space assets are under attack with kinetic and non-kinetic means. Our command-and-control is under attack by electromagnetic attacks and cyber,” he continued.

The “brain and the nervous system that connects all of these pieces is suppressed, if not shattered,” Ochmanek said.

He also explained that the forward bases U.S. forces operate from are eliminated in war scenarios, taking away critical points of operation; researchers are unsure of what that means for America’s fate.
U.S. bases in Europe also pose a vulnerability due to their scattered proximity and insufficient defense capabilities.

“If we went to war in Europe, there would be one Patriot battery moving, and it would go to Ramstein [in Germany]. And that’s it,” Work noted. “We have 58 Brigade Combat Teams, but we don’t have anything to protect our bases. So what difference does it make?”

The researchers stressed that a military defeat is imminent unless the U.S. employs a major change in strategy.

“These are the things that the war games show over and over and over, so we need a new American way of war without question,” Work urged.

We can all thank Bathhouse Barry for severely weakening our Armed Forces, some to below pre-WW ONE levels.

That was one of his biggest agendas, one he largely succeeded at.

We dominated the first (50’s) and second (70-80’s) strategic offsets. Then our government was infested by the crimminal elites that sold our tech to the highest bidders. The Pentagon has been scrambling to develope a third offset strategy for years. Thats where it stands. We are behind Russia and China. Who sold russia a fifth of our uranium? What group of clowns allowed our tech into private hands and across international borders. Any advantage we gained, leaked from the shadows. Our POTUS inherited a mess, I believe it can be turned around. Dont under estimate Space Force. It is not… Read more »

I think that a much simpler explanation exists for why China and Russia would win. It’s highly unlikely that either one of these countries will be in a position to attack the US from their native lands, as the distances involved are simply too great. That means the US –from its naval fleet to all the missiles it placed very near Russia’s borders– will be perceived by the Russians and Chinese as the aggressor. So we’ll be attacking two vast nations homelands, and it has long been known that people fighting a defensive war for their homeland will always fight… Read more »

What will snowflakes, if drafted, do without their “safe space” and teddy bears? What will the diversity-privileged do when faced with more than a war of words that requires critical thinking, perseverance, overcoming hardship, and forging bonds of mutual reliance with truly diverse fellow fighters? What will the Netflix binge-watchers do without a constant diet of diversion and MREs instead of snacks?

No one can predict the future with full accuracy. Suffice it to say, I don’t think America, generally speaking, has the will to win such a war. Or, if the President wants to win it (whomever that President is), he should launch a pre-emptive EMP strike. I imagine that, eventually, war will break out, somehow, somewhere, and one thing will lead to another. But at this point, I do not believe America has the will to win. This comes as no surprise: We’ve been beaten down and demoralized ever since the Kennedy assassination, almost non-stop. I fear for my nephews… Read more »

All the more reason why the U.S. should abandon the Democrats’ insistent demonization of Russia. No longer the commie USSR, we should forge a friendship with Russia. In truth, Russia has more conflicts with China, especially over border disputes, than with the U.S.

We have a president in office whom we thought would fight for this country but we have been deceived. He is basically a coward and in it mainly for himself. He could arrest these seditious aholes in the State and DoD and in the House and Senate but he is too afraid. He could send the “real army” to our borders and stop this crap but he is too afraid of doing so. He could ignore these self-righteous judges who abrogate his authority but he doesn’t. He could demand impeachment of these radical activist judges but he will not. He… Read more »
