Speaking to the new West Point graduating class on 21 May 2022, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley provided a new picture of the US armed forces.

According to him, the military predominance of the United States is coming to an end. The US military is not prepared to deal with the new forms of warfare like those we see in Ukraine and are about to witness in Taiwan. There is an urgent need to adapt to new enemies in high-intensity wars. From now on, the bloodletting for the United States will again be just as heavy as during the two World Wars.
