    Maybe that's why we ducked and covered...very few basements where I was raised.

    It was also right next to Ft. Hood TX.

    Yes, Russia is engaged in actions what will cause dramatic nuclear weapons proliferation around the globe among unstable petty dictators and theocrats.

    Russia's Defense Budget: 90 Billion dollars a year.
    United States Defense Budget: 683 Billion dollars a year.
    Russia GDP: 2.4 trillion.
    United States GDP: 17.4 trillion.

    Russia cannot even afford to fuel its Navy enough to project power worldwide. There is zero chance, zero chance at all that Russia could challenge the United States as a the world's most powerful nation.

    Re: CNN Poll: Most see Russia as a threat to U.S.

    How many countries has the US invaded since WW2?

    How many countries has Russia invaded since WW2?

    Has Russia ever used an atomic weapon on another country?

    The USofA is a threat to plenty of countries in the world isn't it?

    Is Russia really any worse?

    And wouldn't any kind of attack on the US basically be suicide?

    Is Russia stupid enough to outright attack the US?

    How are they doing that?

    Can't the same thing be said about what the US does?

    No basements...yeah, that would be a problem.

    I remember doing that as well.

    A wooden desk is a great shield for nuclear explosions.

    Re: CNN Poll: Most see Russia as a threat to U.S.

    Russia is always the 'big bad' in our news, same with China. It's because the U.S. can't really touch them in any way, or influence them. They are a threat to U.S. manifest destiny and the new world order of neo-liberals and globalists. They routinely give the UN and the U.S. the finger, and there is absolutely nothing the U.S. can do about it, aside from broadcast brainwashing non-sense to their people and issue scary threats. The reality is that they are likely to be the next seat of civilization, because western Europe and the U.S. are losing their grip.

    There's not much the U.S. can do to touch Russia or China, aside from send in its CIA agitators to places like the Ukraine to get it to split its loyalties away from Russia. The Cold War never ended, folks. The U.S. is claiming that Russia is not the legit ruler of the Ukraine, but neither was the interim government in the Ukraine. Russia is just making sure the Ukraine does not fall to the west, just like the U.S. would do with any of its pawn states.

    So you're saying that Russia is doing EXACTLY what the USofA does, but because it's them and not us, we get to have a hissy fit?

    Sounds about right to me.
