    In a commentary published on Dec. 27 on the website of the Voice of Russia, the Russian government's international radio broadcasting service, Kashin says it is "highly probable" that by 2020 China could defeat the US in a local conflict in the east part of the Pacific or slow down the transportation of US forces to the region after it completes its current cycle of reforming and rearming the People's Liberation Army.

    "China could be able of reaching its political goals even before the US localizes all the necessary forces for a full-scale counterattack," Kashin said.

    Well, we could only hope that such events need not ever be stress tested.
    And this is taken seriously because of Russia's rich tradition of naval power and success?

    I don't know. It would appear you should be laughing your ass off at the Pentagon for taking it seriously. And you should arrange a meeting with the Pentagon brass to explain to them that their "serious concerns" are unfounded!

    Since there's no such Pentagon statement in the OP I'll wait to hear from them.

    It's in two threads this one included, but not to worry. I've arranged for them to contact you.

    I have no doubt the Pentagon takes China seriously, but this OP forecast US defeat, and that's well beyond the evidence.

    Oh, there's no question it's hyperbole, that the Russian analysis goes beyond an otherwise very real threat.
