[quote:Boomer:MV83NTE4NTBfMTE1Mzk3ODRfNzI1RDgwOTk=] Medvedev isn't a "warmonger" and there is no "buildup." Russia is reorganizing their military, converting from a reserve/draft based force to a professional force as the US did after Vietnam. You can expect to see an extreme reduction in personnel, facilities and other assets and taking the money saved and generated from that to upgrade their antiquated hardware and insufficient training. In other words...they'd prefer to have 1,000 T-95s and SU-37 Terminators than 10,000 T-72s and MiG-29s. What's the purpose of putting 3 million lightly armed [u]civilians[/u] in uniform to only have them killed due to poor training or flee due to poor discipline when you could have 500,000 heavily armed, extremely well trained [u]soldiers[/u] who will cause your enemies to be the ones to be paralyzed by fear? Better luck with your propaganda next time, OP. [/quote]
As the world economy collapses around us and people are going hungry what does Russia do? Spend their money on the military!! What else?
Medvedev Pushes Plan to Remake Russian Military
MOSCOW, March 17 -- President Dmitry Medvedev vowed Tuesday to press ahead with an ambitious overhaul of Russia's armed forces despite the nation's economic problems and vocal opposition from within the military. Medvedev promised weapons upgrades but also endorsed organizational changes that will cut the officer corps by more than half, or as many as 200,000 positions.
