The Pentagon will now focus on repositioning its forces to prepare itself to combat anticipated tiffs with China and Russia. This has been suggested by U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper recently.

There is a defense-wide review in progress and there is no specific timeline set to the restructuring of American troops worldwide.

Esper made the remarks during a trip to Miami as he began a review of military missions in Latin America, part of a sweeping global examination of deployments that he hopes will allow him to redirect more forces to Asia and send others back to the United States from overseas.

Massive restructuring will be needed to move forces from areas that have shown heavy American troop’s presence. This includes Iran, Iraq, and parts of Africa as well.

In Esper’s words, reviewing of the forces would not necessarily mean reduction. But it would definitely mean shifting some here and there. Southern Command will be seen as more active in Latin America. China’s movement has also been shifting and tilting a lot more towards Latin American nations. It has been steadily increasing its weapon power. This has been confirmed by US military data. Also, Chinese naval port calls have increased 70 percent in the past five years in the region, apart from ramping up weapons sales, infrastructure investment, and trade with Latin American countries.

Now, the focus will shift to the increasing power games in China and Russia, while the militia upheavals will continue to distract the Pentagon.
