How Does The US Military Power Compare To Other Countries?
Tensions between the United States Of America and Russia have peaked after Vladimir Putin’s Ukraine invasion. Our country has supplied Ukraine with rifles, Javelin anti-tank missiles, and night vision equipment.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has even told Fox News’ “Special Report” that the US has decided to send more defensive weapons to Ukraine. So this raises the question: Who has the better military technology, Russia or the US?
The answer is not as simple as we may think. Russia has been pouring funding into its military development in recent decades. NATO’s military commanders have been given the authority to deploy forces “wherever they are needed” following Russia’s latest activities.
The US Secretary of Defense has even assured the Baltic nations that they will not be on their own if faced with security threats from Russia.
