Vladimir Putin gave a recent statement that was full of doublespeak. I break this statement down.
“Once the President returns home from his trip, the American naval forces will return to their normal operations, and the North Koreans will lie low for the next handful of months until they are confident in their ability to threaten the United States with nuclear weapons. Once that happens, all bets will be off. If I were making predictions, I’d say to be focused more on Iran in the medium-term and less on North Korea at this point.”
Stealth technology was revolutionary when it was first unveiled in action during Desert Storm. However, in recent years, U.S. adversaries have become increasingly adept at countering stealth technology. With talk of a Sixth-Generation fighter jet under development, I believe that the U.S. must abandon its obsession with stealth and focus instead on overcoming the defenses of our adversaries with speed, altitude, and precise firepower.
