The United States announced the final version of the national defense authorization act, exposing the idea of militarism

The U.S. Senate and house military committees recently reached a consensus on the draft defense authorization act for fiscal year 2021. The bill will provide the necessary resources and relevant support for the construction of the US military, enable the US military to defend the security of the US and its allies, and even the so-called world, while carrying out military tasks, and lay the foundation for its realization of hegemonism in the international scope. < / P > < p > according to US media reports, the US Senate Armed Services Committee and the House Armed Services Committee published 23 page and 3 page summaries of the bill respectively on December 2. The draft stipulates that the US defense expenditure in 2021 fiscal year will be $740.5 billion, and authorizes US $9.1 billion to purchase 95 F-35 fighters and US $21.3 billion to build seven new combat ships for the US Navy. The draft also plans a 3% pay rise for U.S. soldiers. In addition to arms procurement and military treatment adjustment, the draft also mentions the following. < / P > < p > first, strictly control the reduction of garrison. The draft proposes strict restrictions on the US military disarmament plans in Germany and Afghanistan announced by the trump administration. As for the US troops stationed in Germany, the draft requires the Pentagon to submit a relevant impact report to Congress 120 days before the reduction of troops. At the same time, part of the reduced troops will be deployed to Europe and the other part will be deployed to the US mainland. As for the U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the draft proposes that Congress will not provide funds for reducing the U.S. troops in Afghanistan until the Pentagon confirms that the withdrawal will not have a negative impact on anti-terrorism operations. The second is to standardize the development of space forces. The draft requires the Pentagon to put forward a proposal to Congress on the integration of the space force reserve forces, rejects the proposal previously proposed by the house of Representatives on the use of the Navy rank system for space officers and soldiers, and requires the US air force to complete the formulation of the space force rank system. The third is to strengthen the response to the epidemic situation. In order to effectively respond to major outbreaks, the draft requires the US military to ensure that active and reserve personnel have at least 30 days of emergency provisions for personal protective equipment. At the same time, the draft requires the Pentagon to formulate a major epidemic prevention and disposal plan, and have the ability to rapidly develop vaccines after the outbreak. Fourth, strengthen strategic deterrence. The draft defines the establishment of the “Pacific deterrence initiative”, which will provide us $2.2 billion to enhance US military modernization, US status and capabilities in the Indo Pacific region, and assist us allies and partners in confronting potential regional opponents. < / P > < p > according to the report, according to the regulations, the draft defense authorization bill for fiscal year 2021, which was agreed by the military committees of the US Senate and the house of Representatives, can only be sent to the president for signature after being re voted by the Senate and the house of representatives. However, trump recently said that unless the draft includes a measure to repeal the federal law protecting technology companies such as Facebook and twitter, he will explicitly veto it. < / P > < p > the United States will strongly oppose this. Relevant staff said that the draft is the result of months of consultation between the two houses of Congress and trump administration officials. If it is vetoed by the president, it will have a disastrous impact. Adam Smith, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said that if trump was stupid enough to veto the bill, it would be pure partisan politics. In addition, many Republicans, including Senate Republican whip John Thun, also opposed Trump’s veto speech. < / P > < p > from the previously published contents and the latest released details, we can see that the draft of the US Defense Authorization Act in fiscal year 2021 is another manifestation of the US military’s recent brush “sense of existence”. For example, the contents of the “Pacific deterrence initiative” convey the message that “the United States wants to stay” to its allies and potential opponents in the United States region. Judging from the recent trends of the US military, whether it is pushing forward the deployment of troops or strengthening the cooperation of allies, it has exposed its militaristic thinking. As for Trump’s threat to veto the bill, it is considered to leave a “mess” for the next government. In the countdown to his term of office, trump first announced the dismissal of US Defense Secretary esper through “Twitter” on November 9, leading to a “wave of resignations” in the US Department of defense, with 40% of senior posts vacant. Then he announced his formal withdrawal from the “open sky treaty” on November 22, which aroused widespread public concern and strong dissatisfaction from all parties, and was criticized as having a negative impact on the process of international arms control and disarmament It has great influence. < / P > < p > analysts pointed out that Trump’s “threat” is not expected to work, given that Trump’s veto speech is strongly opposed by members of both parties in the United States. Once the draft national defense authorization act of fiscal year 2021 is passed, it will further promote the US military to strengthen cooperation with its allies and maintain military activities around the world, thus having a negative impact on the regional situation.
