    So what?

    Most people re-elected both G.W. Bush AND Obama.

    Clearly, most Americans are ignoramuses.

    The bottom line here seems to be that the USofA always needs a boogieman.

    And any boogieman will do.

    The bigger the better.

    here's what i want the US to do about Russia :

    1. fix our damned roads
    2. hire some damned people to do some damned **** so that our economy is better
    3. replace the damned transportation energy model
    4. upgrade the damned electrical grid


    that's what the US should do about Russia. that's also what the US should do about China. stop poking the damned tiger who is half a world away. Europe, this one is on you.

    Damned good post.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Russian people I have met through my mom's side are interesting. A lot of the people there aren't as well educated as the rest of Europe, and the more east you go, the more its like traveling back in time. As far as the political mindset goes, I think some of them want to revive the Cold War, because they miss the status and power and miss certain aspects of the USSR.

    They like when the leaders talk tough to America, but they don't expect to start a massive war with the US. Its just a popular form of rhetoric that brings certain generations together there. Russian people don't want to nuke the US. They don't always trust America, but if Americans are going to go off the deep and think the Russians are coming lol, they are completely unreasonable.

    I am not afraid or concerned about Russia.

    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.
    They still have a huge stockpile of nukes that our missile defense system can't stop, although I wonder about that sometimes.

    After an impressive history of testing everyone's patience, Yeltsin was gone like a fart in a hurricane after he uttered the magic words. To read certain posts on the Ukraine issue, I imagine that must have come as a surprise to some.
