Russia is trying to make a comeback as a power on the world stage...but haven't you noticed that Russia is always threatening some sort of action,
military or otherwise, to something the United States is doing?
I'm not saying "call their bluff"; I suppose at some point, they actually will take action. But, after the breakup of USSR, the Russian economic
issues they've experienced since then, what exactly is left of the country? A bunch of silos, with what kind of equipment in them.
It would be a whole lot more considerable fight than say, Yugoslavia or Iraq, which give us enough trouble anyway. But what would their capability be
at this point? Will Russia rise again?
I look at it as stepping in the ring with modern day Mike Tyson. Sure, the name alone is enough to give you a good scare, but once the action starts,
you realize he just isn't what he used to be.
I suppose though, the same could be said for the USA.
