Mattis to Congress: I'm wasting my time if you don't pass budget

US Defense Chief N. Korea's Outlaw Actions Threaten Global Stability Mattis to Congress: I'm wasting my time if you don't pass budget

"If we are to sustain our military's primacy, we need budget predictability", Mattis said.

"I would tell you that with it we can ... begin on the trail to restoring the competitive advantage that has been eroded", Mattis said.

Meanwhile, Russia and China have been investing heavily in their own military forces, including their nuclear weapons, putting a significant dent in the USA military's advantage in battlefield capabilities, should it ever be drawn into conflict with those powers. Such agreements can foster cooperation and confidence among nuclear weapons states and reduce the risk of miscalculation that could lead to war, it notes - while accusing Russian Federation of undermining those aims by violating numerous treaties.

Many Republicans refused to support such amnesty unless Democrats agreed to include funding for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall and other key immigration enforcement priorities, including ending chain migration and a visa lottery program.

At Tuesday's hearing, Mattis pushed back against the idea that he is giving short shrift to arms control.

The defense chief said the second line of effort would be to strengthen traditional partnerships with USA allies. In a statement Monday, its Foreign Ministry called the review's assertions frightening, "utterly hypocritical" and risky.

The ministry argued that while the Russian military doctrine envisages the use of nuclear weapons to deter an aggression that threatens "the very existence of our state", Washington took a no-limits approach under which it might use nuclear weapons in "extreme circumstances" that aren't part of military operations. It says the administration will develop a nuclear-armed cruise missile that can be launched by submarines. Such a weapon existed for years but was withdrawn from active service by the administration of President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s and retired by the Obama administration.

James Acton, a nuclear weapons specialist at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said that offer seems disingenuous.

The consequences of not providing a budget "are clear", the secretary said. He broadly described the US strategy's approach to arm control as worrying, including its silence on whether the USA wants to exercise an option in the New START treaty to extend its terms for five years.

The bilateral deal restricts each country to 1,550 deployed strategic nuclear warheads, and mandates reductions in ballistic missiles and strategic bombers.

The United States of America now has 660 deployed Minuteman-III Inter-continental Ballistic Missiles, Trident-II, Submarine-launched ballistic missiles and B-2A and B-52H heavy bombers in its nuclear arsenal for deterrence.

Under the treaty, both sides are to exchange information twice a year on the number of warheads and delivery vehicles, and are allowed to conduct on-site inspections to verify each other's compliance.
