In ww2 on D-Day(6 June, 1944), we rushing through Europe and four-fifths of the German forces were in the East. In France, the Allies faced only about 20% of the German army. The second front, however, certainly diverted German resources, and shortened the war. Allies just feared that we take entire Europe after war. And after your landings you get hard times because Germans shortly started offence on your front and Cherchill asked us for large attack on Eastern front to save your a$$es, and we saved lifes of your soldiers.
In 1964-1968 USA lost more than 3400+ aircrafts(including 31 B-52), you killed only 345 MIG's, and only 16 russians died in this war(3 from diseases), where the hundreds you've talked about? You lost more than 58000 soldiers, yeah, you are just great.
About "latest" russian equipment in Iraq - yeah, I laugh a lot, you consider those AK-47 as latest equipment? Maybe you name what latest and best Russian toys they have? As for russian tanks, well, every idiot says that without air support, tanks - easy targets.
1804-1813 - war with Persia - Persian army outnumbers Russian army in that region, we crushed them, Russia gains Dagestan, North Azerbaijan
1806-1812 - war with Turkey(started by them) - we capture fortresses: Isakcha, Tulcha, Badabag, Machin, Ismail, Brailov, Silstria, annexation of Besarabia. We almost destroyd their fleet in Afon battle, not a single russian ship was demaged.
1817-1864 - Caucasian wars - Russia gains Chechnya, Mountain Dagestan, North-West Caucasus, also we gain Gilan, Mazenderan, Astrabad, Karlym Kaheti we fight against Turkey and Iran, they were supported by England, France and other European countries
1826-1826 - another war with Persia(Iran) - they outnumbered us again(in 3 times) and again they lost, we gain Echmidizin, Abbasabad, Nahichevan, Tebriz, Urmin, Ardebil, after peace treaty we gets Erivan and Nahichevan khanate, East Armenia. Persian yoke over Kaukasian people eliminated.
1828-1829 - war with Turkey - well, actually we fight with european nations for control over dying Osman Empire. Greece request Russia for help to gain independence. After blitzkrieg Russian forces surround Constantinople. Turkey signed peace treaty: Russia gains Caucasian coast of Black Sea and Aholcid. Greece gained independence, Serbia, Moldova, Valahia gained autonomy from Turkey
1853-1856 - war with Osman Empire for domination in Middle East, after we destroy their fleet, England, France, Sardinia, Sweden, Austria declare war to Russia to prevent us from full domination in that region. After peace treaty Russia withdraw Black Sea fleet, only in 1870 we quit from this treaty.
1877-1878 - Russia declare war to Turkey, after this war Balkan nations granted independence from Turkey: Bulgaria freed, full independence for Romania, Serbia, Monte-Negro
That's just a small part of our wars and only in that region, we always fought with powerful enemies, not with a poor nations like you. Our military prove it's power for years.

And what, the Romans were loved? It doesn't matter who people like. It matters who had the most impact, and who was the most powerful.
America has changed the world. The nations that want to rival us can only do so by becoming us. Russia and China has been forced to make a slow switch to capitalism, and ultimately democracy. Europe has been forced to join together to form a united Europe, just like our states.
America wouldn't even have had to become an "empire", and we'd still have been remember throughout history more then a nation like the Soviet Union. We've been changing the political landscape of the world since we won our independence.
Well the thing is during the roman times history was written by only the victorious..thats what I was saying before...now its different...There will be loads of documentation on the imperialistic attitude of the americans.
Also do not be so pompous to market democracy as an "american" product.
Countries which were anti-US in the cold war(India for example) were and still are democratic. Infact India is the largest democracy in the world. Nonetheless anti-americanism is at its all time high here. Same with the French.
The US as of now survives the very destability of its major opponents. Any alliance between major powers like Russia, China, and India would topple the whole unipolar nature of this planet. Even Brazil wants in on this anti-american alliance. Russia and China have been improving relations ever since the fall of USSR. India and Russia have always been allies. And recently India and China have begun t omakes confidence building moves by conducting joint anti terror exercises and sorting out border disputes.
The only "loose link" in this new axis is Pakistan. India si sour about
Pak-China relations and the US keeps boosting Pak ally status to try and complicate issues further. The US is playing the Pak trump to the fullest.Also by trying to improve relations with India the US is trying to keep the India-Russia-China axis from materialising..
And even youve got to agree that a Russia-China-Indioa alliance would be more than a match for any other alliance on the planet...militarily, technological ,resource wise, manpower....etc. etc.

Well, we're at least know truth, you only know crap, it's just funny that you don't know anything about real powers of that time. Stay in your dreams, idiot, you are dumb enough to be proud american citizen, and such sites only help you. Wow, I'm still under impression from this crap, never saw so much lie in one place. And after that you called yourself free, yeah. US just not worth to be the part of civilized world, and you teach your children SUCH history, wow, great. Ok, I know that your educational system is crap, and produce only idiots, but now.., wow, lie about ww2, lie about history of other countries, oh, what now? Maybe US invented gunpowder, guns, wheel, and Roman Empire was actually american? Can your children count integral, differential or doesn't know what is it? Do you know what is Teory of Systems, Theory of Relativity? Yeah, I forget that your goverment only wants idiots, who can be easily controlled. And after that you pretend to be the best? New alliances are forming, new superpowers are creating, you are just not worth to exsist. Country, who prefer write lie for their history, country, who can't give proper education to it's children, country, who thinks that others are nothing must be annihilated. I don't want to argue with such idiot, which "knowledge" based on lie.
And the tensions between India china and russia are at their lowest ever..Russia and China have improved relations greatly in the last decade or so..don't write off the allince so easily
Also indivisually the China, India and Russia maybe be inferior to the US but in what sense is the US 'ahead' of this 'dream alliance' of mine? Plz elaborate
Yes indeed america was chosen as an idol when Idnia deceide its form of governance, we have much to look up to w.r.t america..but that was pre WWII..ever since then and more so now post 9/11 that is the american popularity has dropped exponentially even amongst the populations of its allies.
Secondly do you trust no one?
Is your world full of liars backstabbers and cutthroats?
Do you know that one significant quake can set off a "chain reaction" in other areas of the world? It happens all the time. You might want to give the World Wide Seismic Event thread a look from the beginning for almost 9 months of research on both earthquakes (in swarms and singularly) and HAARP.
On 3 August 2004, Reuters quoted Jane's as follows:
"North Korea is deploying new land- and sea-based ballistic missiles that can carry nuclear warheads and may have sufficient range to hit the United States, according to the authoritative Jane's Defense Weekly.
"In an article due to appear Wednesday, Jane's said the two new systems appeared to be based on a decommissioned Soviet submarine-launched ballistic missile, the R-27. It said communist North Korea had acquired the know-how during the 1990s from Russian missile specialists and by buying 12 former Soviet submarines which had been sold for scrap metal but retained key elements of their missile launch systems."
Like I said, very interesting. As an aside- why do Americans and Russians still argue about WW II?
