It’s been a veritable “battle of the braun” on the world stage since President Trump was sworn into office.
Leaders around the globe are flexing their muscles in response to Trump’s recent bold military maneuvers.
With a convoy of American ships headed to the Korean peninsula, those who have questioned America’s strength in leading the free world are questioning it no longer.
Unfortunately for Vladimir Putin, his allies include Assad in Syria and Kim Jong Un in North Korea. With Trump currently condemning the brutal dictators of these two countries, Russia is now responding with some brash statements of its own.
The country has claimed that it can incapacitate the entire US Navy by jamming our electronic signals.
From The Sun:
A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless.
The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”
It’s likely that these statements are merely a bluff to intimidate the United States. If Russia truly had this technology, it’s highly unlikely they would brag about it.
In a related story, Russia just released the blueprints for a high-tech Arctic military base.
Yet this is still a risk that needs to be acknowledged. While nobody can stand up to the U.S. military directly, the use of subversive means of attacks like this can potentially threaten our systems.
Indeed, the whole economy of every global economic power is vulnerable to the electro-magnetic pulse strike phenomenon.
Fortunately, the United States has been developing radiation-hardening technology since the 1980’s. With this technology, our electronic components and systems are resistant to damage or malfunctions.
Combined with our anti-jamming capabilities and anti-radiation missiles, it’s safe to say that our military can stand against any threat, including this one.
If Putin wishes to continue allying himself with brutal dictators, he should be prepared to suffer the consequences.
