Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. Yonhap Pentagon’s Competition with Russia, China Is No Cold War, General Says

The U.S. military lists Russia and China as its top priorities for war planning, but the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff maintains that America hasn’t entered into a second cold war.

Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and violent extremism have long been considered potential threats to the U.S.

But over the last year, the Pentagon has focused those priorities to “two state actors that really represented great power competition, that being China and Russia,” Gen. Joseph Dunford told an audience at Duke University on Monday.
