    Don't know what you expect. The U.S. depends on the international order, and Russia has acted out against that order twice now.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Does the US always follow "international order"?

    As we think of ways to down grade our military forces, Russia [China and others] have been up grading and modernizing theirs. If this seem threatening then it probably is.

    Somebody hit the Kremlin with a massive cyber-attack this morning. Hope it wasn't us because that IS threatening.

    I don't think they'd get into a nuke exchange, though they would quicker than us. But financially, by themselves, they're not much of a threat. Combined with China or a few other countries they could cause problems. They supply half the energy for Europe, and though it would hurt them, it might send the global economy into a nosedive if it ripples.


    Energy experts said Russia had the power to cause problems in markets across Europe, even though peak winter demand was past. “Europe still relies heavily – in some cases 100 per cent – on Russian gas. And if that was interrupted very suddenly, there would be difficulties all round,” said Lord Howell, the former energy secretary.

    But the White House brushed off the Russian announcement as less of a blow for EU economies than in previous years. Josh Earnest, the White House spokesman, said reduced Russian exports would not have an immediate effect since stocks in Europe were above normal levels because of a mild winter. Structural changes in the industry also mean that less of Europe’s gas went through Ukraine.

    When I was a kid, we use to have atomic bomb drills every so often where we'd duck and cover under our desks. That was because of the threat from Russia. (USSR)

    .Even talking about the possibility of conflict 'ripples' the global economy.

    I see Russia as the poor, rotten bully on the street corner, nobody likes but doesn't screw with, because he doesn't have as much to lose and he's angry for not being popular.

    And the global economy is so connected and fragile from the massive debt.

    they're only a threat to us if we keep doing the stupid dick measuring contests with them. Ukraine is about as much our business as Mexico is theirs.

    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.

    Hopefully, we know better now. Occassionally, I still see fallout shelter signs on old buildings....
