The head of military intelligence in the US Army General Robert Ashley, that the nuclear warheads possessed by Russia constitute an "existential threat" to his country, while China's future danger and non-destructive.
Ashley said that Russia is a threat to the United States in the immediate and immediate term, and China in the long term.
He added that a few thousand shipments and nuclear warheads at the disposal of Russia constitute an "existential threat" to his country, while the danger from the People's Republic of China is economic.
At the same time, the head of the US military intelligence agrees with the view of some that if Russia is "upset" it may react unexpectedly.
Politicians and senior Western military officials often raise the issue of the "Russian threat" on occasion and inappropriately, despite Moscow's repeated assertion that its forces are defensive and do not plan to attack anyone.
