Global Geopolitics has warned at least nine times throughout the years that Chinese and Russian weaponry is either on par or will soon be more advanced than what the United States has:
China, Russia, Iran Closing Gap with Smaller, Older U.S. Military
Russia claims to have super weapon that disables western satellites and long range arms
Chinese bought division of IBM that manufactures computing servers for U.S. Navy Aegis cruisers
China Tests ICBM With Multiple Warheads
‘Stolen’ J-31 can beat American jets in dogfight, says US pilot
Pentagon: Military Losing Technological Superiority to China

The most America has done to mitigate this threat is to hastily rush the F-35 into service and claim it’s ‘combat ready’ — even though it has 419 known defects.
The United States should upgrade missile defense capabilities to be able to counter growing threats, Republican Senator Jim Inhofe said in a press release following the launch of two medium-range ballistic missiles by North Korea.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — North Korea fired two ballistic missiles from its eastern shore on Wednesday morning. One of the weapons landed into the Sea of Japan, the country’s exclusive economic zone.
“The growing ballistic missile threats to our nation and our allies are beginning to outpace the United States’ missile defense capability in numbers and sophistication,” Inhofe stated on Wednesday. “Not only do we have North Korea continuing to flex and test its missile capabilities, but Iran also continues to test medium range ballistic missiles in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions.”
“It is time for an administration that is committed to rebuilding our military and responsibly prioritizing and modernizing our nation’s missile defense,” Inhofe noted.
