President Donald Trump sought to make peace with America’s adversaries and to foster peace in the world’s most volatile region, the Middle East. Now, only three months into the Biden administration, Russia could invade Ukraine, China is threatening Taiwan, and America’s military leaders are discussing the threat of nuclear war. The Daily Mail reports:
US Strategic Command will warn in its annual posture statement that the ‘spectrum of conflict today’ could rapidly lead to nuclear war.
Commander Charles Richard will give testimony to the House Armed Services Committee and the Senate Committee on Armed Services this week.
The posture review informs Congress on the state of Strategic Command and what it intends to do with its 2022 budget request.
‘We must account for the possibility of conflict leading to conditions which could very rapidly drive an adversary to consider nuclear use as their least bad option.’
The testimony will be heard on Tuesday and Wednesday and will be delivered by Commander Richard alongside US Space Command’s Commander James Dickinson.
Ahead of the review, he said his force has the difficult position of trying to prepare for a war that has never been fought before.
