Even amid Coronavirus epidemic, China continues rivalry with US

The first global cyber warfare will flareup this year, warns economist Nouriel Roubini

Washington: ‘The United States has imposed sanctions against Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea and these countries cannot retaliate against the United States in conventional warfare. Therefore, the countries will use unconventional war techniques to stop the United States. That will cause the first flareup of a global cyberwar’, Economist Nouriel Roubini warned. Also, Roubini cautioned that the Presidential elections in the United States this year would be a crucial stage of the cyberwar. Only last year, the US cyber command had indicated that the threat of cyberattacks from Russia, China, Iran and North Korea had risen.

Roubini is a senior Professor in the New York University and a founder of an economic advisory company. During Barack Obama and Bill Clinton’s presidency, he worked with US administration in the capacity of an economist and advisor. Currently, Nouriel Roubini, who is a member of the advisory committee at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), is recognised as a leading economist in the country. His prediction, which was made two years before the economic recession had hit the United States in 2008-09, created a sensation.

The US will lose its military domination unless the nuclear weapons are modernised, warns senior US official

Washington: Admiral Charles Richard, chief of the US Strategic Command warned ‘Russia and China are increasing their nuclear might tremendously. In this scenario, if the United States did not invest intelligently in its nuclear program, we will come to such a turn that it will not be possible to return. The United States will lose its military domination for a long period.’ Admiral Richard suggested that the United States should modernise the strength of launching a nuclear strike from air, land and sea.

Admiral Richard asked for more military funds while talking in front of the Armed Services Committee of the US House of Representatives. If you want to dominate countries like Russia and China, having huge nuclear arsenals, the United States must modernise its nuclear weapons. Admiral Richard appealed to the US Congress for more funding for this purpose. At the same time, the Strategic Command Chief said that there should not be any prevarication while modernising the nuclear might.
