SAN DIEGO, Calif. — The former clamp chair of a Joint Chiefs
warned on Wednesday that Russia and China were going against
what he called a “global handling system” of order, rules, and

“This complement is underneath attack,” Adm. James Winnefeld (Ret.) told
attendees of a AFCEA West 2017 conference. “They’ve thrown away
a rules, and we’re not prepared for it.”

In his keynote address, Winnefeld summarized a current
confidence sourroundings for a United States, that included
mentions of Russian division in elections, China’s moves
in a South China Sea, and Iran’s violations of UN Security
Council resolutions, among other items, that he called “ongoing
intrusion in a inhabitant confidence landscape.”

“Historical change can be formidable to see when you’re actually
vital by it, though that kind of intrusion might be what we’re
saying today,” he said. “If we are going to revive a strategic
balance, to say a edge, we have to work most harder.”

Winnefeld brought adult 4 variables that minister to global
fortitude — ends, ways, means, and a confidence sourroundings —
but, he suggested, all 4 were out of strike today. “That is
flattering dangerous,” he said.

The ends, he said, were a choices that policymakers go with on
what interests are stable and that are not. He explained the
means were focused mostly on budgeting and merger for the
military, and ways were how a troops indeed executes on

Though Winnefeld attempted to keep his talk apolitical, he said
President Donald Trump’s proceed of ‘America First’ seemed to go
after usually security, discounting other variables.

“I, for one, am not prepared to give adult on a tellurian operating
complement only yet,” Winnefeld said. “It’s too important.”

Though a admiral summarized a rather grave design in his talk,
he offering regard for a inhabitant confidence group that was shaping
adult in a Trump administration, with late Marine Gen. Jim
Mattis holding a helm during a Pentagon, and Marine Gen. Joe
Dunford remaining as a Chairman of a Joint Chiefs.

He was also confident about Army Gen. H.R. McMaster, who was
recently named as a president’s inhabitant confidence adviser.

“I unequivocally trust in a guy, and we consider he’s going to do well
for us,” Winnefeld said.
