The US decided to resume the strategy of transferring troops during the cold war

In early March, the Pentagon, guided by this strategy, transferred from the US to Poland 1,5 thousand infantry. The purpose of such maneuvers — the unpredictable appearance of troops for deterrence the enemy, said Major General John Gronsky.

The command of the US army is once again mastering the instantaneous deployment of troops, adapting to the new strategy of the US defense Ministry, known as “dynamic use of force”. This is state by the official publication of the Pentagon Stars and Stripes. The strategy involves the support of the army “balance of forces with the enemy with the help of more unpredictable movement of troops”, the publication points out.

The Pentagon has already applied the strategy in practice: in early March, 1500 infantry, who were on artillery exercises in the city of El Paso, Texas, were quickly transferred to Poland. This tactic is reminiscent of the cold war, when the mobilization of troops without prior notice was the main feature of the military strategy to counter the Soviet Union, the publication emphasizes.

“This will be observed on a regular basis. For any of our opponents anywhere it will be unpredictable, which is good for our national security. The thing to deter the enemy and willingness of troops”, the Deputy commander of the National guard of the United States in Europe, major General John Gronski said to publication.

In late February, it became known that the Pentagon is developing a new strategy of warfare in response to the threat of conflict with Russia, China and other opponents. This was announced by the chief of staff, the US air force General David Goldfein. Work on the concept conduct the representatives of the air force and Navy, as well as other military agencies. The idea is a covert joint penetration into enemy territory at sea, on land and in the air to put him in a difficult position. The main role in this regard will play the American F-35 fighters. The implementation of this strategy will require about $ 135 billion.
