    Oh yeah, the big commie was never interested in rebuilding the military. I don't even need to show proof of that, it's obvious. You can make some sort of deal if you like.

    Yes ... this is true.

    Putin is a scumbag and has long been out of control. Putin is the same man who sold nuclear materials to Iran.

    Put is the next Stalin ... unless he gets liquidated.

    As historically pointed out and historically you have ignored to suit your poorly thought out arguments, development of a weapon system is not necessarily purely military geared. Many states' governments derive their legitimacy from such weapons' existence. North Korea for one. North Korea won't use it weapons unless its facing utter annihilation. The actual risk of an armed ICMB is rather low given their #1 desire to stay in power.

    Threat A necessitates Defense A
    By that logic, we should spend trillions to defend ourselves from space aliens.

    Threat B necessitates Defense B
    That Defense A does not affect Threat B is not an argument against Defense A.
    Actually it is when it allocates money away from Defense B which defends against Threat B which is many times more likely then Threat A.

    Explain to me how it is logical to spend money on a defense which does not protect us from the most likely threats at the expense of a defense which does.

    Oh wait. I asked that several times. No one even tried to answer it. I don't expect anything different now.

    Naturally, Russia has absolutely ZERO interest in becoming the dominant military force on the eurasian land mass. None. Zilch. Ain't gonna happen. they're just going to be happy watching the old family movies showing how they almost matched the baddest boys on the planent and will never never dream of climbing the pinnacle to second best yet once again. Instead, they're going to sit back, ignore a thousand years of history and trust the chinese won't invade them again. Hell, they know the French aren't going to try it again...but there are those wily Germans....oh, Russia can trust the Germans....they trusted Hitler, didn't they? That worked out well for them, got them half of Europe for a while, right?

    Nossir, American. Not a chance in hell that Russia ever had any thoughts about restoring their status as second best, not a chance I assure you.

    /sarcasm off.

    You got any idea what's wrong with those people that want to trust to Russia's good intentions?
