US May get into a Major Conflict with Russia or China in 2019: US Military

A major military conflict between the US and Russia & China might trigger a world war as the conflict will also draw the NATO nations including the UK, France, Germany, Italy. Approximately 50% of the US military soldiers believe that the United States will soon be drawn into a major war against Russia and China, according to the Military Times.

It is about the “shocking escalation of concern” of the US military about global instability in general and a possible military clash with Russia and China in particular.

About 46% of US military personnel who took part in an anonymous survey believe that the United States will be drawn into a new war within a year. The results are shocking as only 5% of US soldiers held the same opinion according to a survey conducted in September 2017.

Answering questions about specific countries that they are concerned about, the US military, first of all, called Russia and China. The survey showed a significant increase in the share of the military, who consider these countries a “significant” or “major” threat. About 71% believe that Russia represents a significant threat, which is 18 percentage points more than in last year’s poll. Similarly, 69% of respondents believe that China poses a significant threat, which is 24 percentage points more than last year.
