Russia, China Can Inflict “Very Serious Damage” to the United States: General McKenzie

Russia and China can severely impair the United States and cause serious damage as both countries pose a serious threat to America. This statement was made on Tuesday by Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie nominated by US President Donald Trump to head the Central Command (CENTCOM) of the US Armed Forces.

Rivalry in Central Asia

Mackenzie added that the United States is engaged in a long-term strategic rivalry with Russia and China in Central Asia, and for this, the US military forces need to deploy military bases in the region and use airspace.

“Yes. The rivalry of the great powers is global in nature – it occurs not only within the borders of the great powers themselves but also on the periphery, on such competitive spaces as Central Asia,” he said, answering the question of whether he considers Central Asia as a region where there is a long-term strategic rivalry between the United States and Russia and China.

“CENTCOM will continue to strengthen the relations necessary to maintain access, the ability to deploy bases and the use of airspace, which are necessary to compete with Russia and China, as well as support the fight against terrorism,” he added.
