russia invading finland?

are we talking about Command and Conquer Red Alert here?

if that's the case, just let them do it, it's better to be part of a greater nation anyway

There are Fins on this forum who would not take kindly to such statements Warset.

You do realise that there is a huge gap between Russian and Finnish GDPs and quaility of life is much better.

As for a war between Finland and Russia, few important points:
1)Russia will occupy finland if it throws its full force against us

2)If we are invaded, insutgency will be 100 times worse than Iraq, because we ain't going to fight between ourselves and 85% of the male population has military training.

3)If Russia attacks with any thing less than Full force (in real life scenario, they may be able to mass 5-10 divisions against Finland)

4)Finnish geography and infrastructure limits possible attack routes to 3, with 2 of them leading to the capital Helsinki. These roadways can only support a division/road at a time.

5)Combine this with a 350 000 men Finnish army, armed with heavy RPGs, ATGMs, Leopard 2s and the largest artillery in western europe and you'll have bloodbath.

Result=Russia will not attack Finland unless a new world war starts, because it will be too costly, other neighbours (all of them besides China are easier targets) will be more lucrative to Russia.

Any questions?

Ps. The airspace violations have been a problem for decades, our fighters don't cross the border, but they do fly towadrs the border at mach 1 and break off right before the borderline (nice way to make russian pilots rush to their planes, without doing anything illegal
