U.S. admiral raises alarm over Russian military threat

“The ability of the U.S. and Canadian military to defend North America could be jeopardized by stepped up Russian military activity, according to the commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Adm. William Gortney told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday that Russia is continuing to work on its program to deploy ‘long-range conventionally armed cruise missiles,’ that can be launched from its bomber aircraft, submarines and warships. This is giving the Kremlin ‘deterrent’ options ‘short of the nuclear threshold,’ Gortney said.”
