The General expressed his concerns over the elevated risk of Chinese and Russian cruise missile submarines operating in close proximity to the U.S. The Yasen-class nuclear cruise missile attack boats have been increasing their deployments, further escalating the possibility of a potential attack.
Russia's submarines are equipped with advanced sensors and weapons systems, rendering them the most capable and sophisticated in the world. These submarines are designed to be quieter than earlier generations of Russian submarines, making them harder to detect and track.
The commander of the United States Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, General Glen D. VanHerck, has raised apprehensions about the inadequate infrastructure required for military operations and emergency response in the Arctic. He expressed concerns that the military is presently ill-equipped, untrained, and unorganized to efficiently carry out such operations in this region. VanHerck emphasized that the dearth of appropriate infrastructure, such as runway connections, buildings, and adequate storage facilities for weapons and fuel, is a major issue that needs to be addressed.
VanHerck has expressed his full support for the Coast Guard's proposal to acquire more icebreakers, indicating the severity of the situation. He believes that urgent action is required to address these escalating global threats, which the United States is facing. It is crucial that our national leaders adopt a robust and vigilant approach to ensure the safety and security of our homeland.
