Baltic Conflict Would Spell Defeat for US, NATO Against Russia

Baltic Conflict Would Spell Defeat for US, NATO Against Russia
Spending in Eastern Europe will increase from a current $800 million to some $3.4 billion.

While this announcement came as a shock to many, a report released by the RAND Corporation this week may offer an explanation. According to the think tank’s analysis of NATO war games in Eastern Europe, both the US and NATO would suffer a crushing defeat if forced to confront the Russian military.

"The games’ findings are unambiguous: As currently postured, NATO cannot successfully defend the territory of its most exposed members," the report states. 

The report focuses on the Baltic region, examining a series of war games conducted between 2014-2015. The results show Russian troops reaching the Latvian, Lithuanian, and Estonian capitals within 36 to 60 hours.

"Such a rapid defeat would leave NATO with a limited number of options, all bad," the report reads.
Three options are provided. The first is a counterattack, which is predicted to result in an even stronger reaction from Moscow. The second option involves NATO threatening Russia with nuclear weapons, while the third would be to accept defeat.

In November 2015, an earlier study by the same consultancy group found that the United States is rapidly losing air superiority to the Chinese military.

"…Continuous improvements to Chinese air capabilities make it increasingly difficult for the United States to achieve air superiority within a politically and operationally effective timeframe, especially in a scenario close to the Chinese mainland," the earlier report stated.

Beijing’s growing military strength challenges Washington’s role in the Pacific, particularly in the South China Sea, where the US has vocally protested China’s construction of artificial islands in the Spratly archipelago.
