Washington counted fifty hostile countries


The director of department of political planning of State Department Kieron Skinner said that more than 50 countries can cause a loss to the USA. She told about it on Thursday, March 16, in the Washington Center for Strategic and International Studies, is told on the platform website. Skinner urged listeners to think of geopolitical changes in the world since the end of the 20th century. According to her, before the USA worried only because of two players on the international scene, capable to cause a loss to the country. "China had a nuclear weapon, but it was not a rival as tried to win Cold War, keeping aloof from it. We were busy with rivalry with the USSR at this time" — she reminded. Today, according to the director of department of State Department, more than 50 countries can cause an essential loss to Washington, causing thereby concern. It is not only about massive nuclear attack, noticed Skinner. According to her, other states can do much harm the USA by means of a cyber war, economic war, information opposition. The main problem for Washington will become developing countries which joined recently or are capable to join nuclear club, Skinner considers. "If you look at their demography, then will understand that it is other world. China, for example, became the first in our history country which was the rival in economy, but not just in the military sphere" — she concluded. On January 19 the Pentagon published new military strategy in which Russia and China are called the main strategic rivals of the USA. In the document it was reported that rivalry with Moscow and Beijing "will demand large and steady investments because potentially these threats are directed to safety and wellbeing of the USA".
