The history of the US is very relevant to this discusiion given the western media spin that this is somehow Russia's fault and that they are the aggressors....when the US has a very long history of doing just what it has in the Ukraine.....which is to overthrow a government that they don't like and install a puppet regime.
Russia is way ahead of the west when it comes to missile in any case and are more likely to hit the USA than anything else if this goes hot.

Russia is still relatively backwards when it comes to certain ethnic groups and tolerance. Some could argue the same is true for the US, but imo Russia takes it to a completely different level. I mean look at the conflict that has transpired over just the past couple decades.
