the Pentagon admitted the possibility of destruction of Russia with the help of submarines. This opinion was expressed by the head of Strategic command of the USA General John Khayten. He stated during hearings on the defense budget of the United States for the year 2019. Stream of his speech is published in website the armed services Committee of the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress.
“They don’t know where our submarines, and they are able to destroy their country if we go this way” — so Khayten commented on statement Russian President Vladimir Putin on the new strategic weapons. The General stressed that U.S. strategic forces are ready for any possible threats.
In early March Khayten suggested the way to counter Russian and Chinese hypersonic weapons. In his opinion, it is necessary to focus on the spacecraft to prevent startup and to eliminate ballistic missiles and hypersonic aircraft. “This sensor could track a missile in the middle portion of the ballistic trajectory, as well as to observe and find from space and other emerging threats, such as hypersound,” said the General.
