U.S. Army Brands Russia As “The Enemy” In Newly Released Manual

by Vern Evans

A new manual for the United States military-industrial complex has been released. In the manual, meant to prepare the American military for fighting Russia in a war, Moscow is called “the enemy.”

The primary focus of the new 280-page long manual is on Moscow’s ground forces, which would be pitted against the US Army in a hypothetical direct war. The Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate (CADD) released the document which contains a detailed overview of Russian military strategy and tactics and tries to predict how the country would conduct itself in future conflicts, according to a report by RT. 

The CADD promoted the manual in a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Monday, asking, “Do you know your enemy?”

Is it odd or just another coincidence that the U.S. ruling class and war machine chose to release this document publically, so the Russian rulers and anyone else who wanted to read it could do so? It seems strange that this would be released, but maybe it’s done to anger Moscow or other militaries the U.S. considers “enemies.”

The document, known as ATP 7-100.1 and released last week, is part of a series that the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) has been developing for years. Previous publications provided similar studies of the militaries of other potential near-peer and peer opponents: North Korea, China, and Iran. The materials are not classified and are intended for professional US and allied military officers.

With Russia currently involved in the Ukraine conflict, US military researchers stressed that they are still examining data gathered there and would revise their instructions accordingly. They said it was “too early to assess the structure and equipping of any Russian unit for the next 5 to 10 years” with hostilities still ongoing.

Discussing Russia’s relations with the US and its NATO allies, the manual says they are defined “by a perpetual state of competition and self interest.” The country seeks recognition as a world power and it is “highly likely” that future Russian leaders will pursue policies similar to that of the current government “for the foreseeable future,” it said; Russia will “challenge the relative position of US influence in the global order while avoiding direct confrontation with the US military.” –RT

”The core of the problem is not in Ukraine but in those who are trying to destroy Russia with Ukrainian hands,” President Vladimir Putin said last month while visiting a military hospital. “Even though they have been pursuing this goal of tackling Russia for ages, we will sooner tackle them.”
