“Russia is the most capable state actor we face,” but North Korea, Iran, China and violent extremism represent more serious security challenges.
From an urgency perspective, North Korea would be our number one challenge., said the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
During confirmation hearings for his current post as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford described Russia as “the greatest threat to our national security,” saying that Moscow’s “behavior” was “alarming.“
At the same time, Dunford pointed out that Washington is dealing with the Iranian threat “on a daily basis,” though North Korea is currently America’s biggest challenge.
“Obviously, North Korea today from a sense-of-urgency perspective would be our number one challenge,” the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
The fight against “violent extremism,” as well as “some security challenges in the Pacific with the rising China” also top the list of security threats to the US.
To counter Russia, the US Marine Corps general proposed developing nuclear and conventional deterrent capabilities.
“When I look at Russia, first and foremost we have to be able to deter a nuclear war… secondly, we have to be able to deter a conventional war,” he said.
