Or does the United States of America have to be the dominant force in fighting terrorism east and west?

I extremely do not trust Russia.

I don't think so, but are'nt they giving us troops to help fight the war in Iraq or something. I know that they are at least aiding us with some vehicles.

Where did you hear that? Just curious...

Yes, Russia has spoken out numerous times, on the international stage, against international terrorism. Their commitment may be completely selfish, but it's certainly a commitment. Part of their struggle has been to frame the ongoing conflicts in various former soviet states as battlefields in the larger war against terrorism.

The fact that Russian puppet politicians use terroristic tactics freely, and indeed wrote the book on the subject in the region, is lost on some, and not on others.

They have their interests, and certainly terrorism remains a threat to those interests. They want to legitimize their own brand of terrorism to protect their interests, and of course their enemies do the same.

Sometimes I think the USA media uses soft psychology to make people "enjoy" their lives rather than think of nuclear war.

I just believe that soft psychology does not maximize the security of this Great Nation. I believe the media can inspire more Americans to do tough government work. Sometimes I wonder if a greater division between the government and the private sector has been created in recent years. The cause of this I am uncertain.

Define "East". Russian troops are guarding (or were guarding) the Afghan and other borders in Central Asia. If Chechnya is "East", they certainly have there hands full.

I define East and West in terms of average human life expectancy numbers: the East at less than 70 years of age and the West at 70 or above. I consider Russia as the dominant force in the East but I still believe they have to shift towards a people orientation and away from the super-advanced technology orientation. The USA is the dominant force in the West based on a combination of population and life expectancy.

I believe the world is better off when at least partly controlled by two (not one or 192) nations (USA and Russia) who agree on many policies but can peacefully and mutually disagree. I do believe that every nation can help every other nation, every organization can help every other organization, and every individual can help every other individual.
