Twisted, the US doesn't even have any firepower there yet. The NATO fleet is a joke, both Russia and the US know that.
If the US Navy were to come down on the Russian Navy, it would be all she wrote. The Russian Navy is no match for the US Navy, not even close.
You could make a case for the Soviet Union, but not now. While Russia has some renewed military life, it is still nothing like before.
They would be foolish to antagonize the US, it would spell the end of their Navy for another 20 years.

This is pretty funny. Russian technology is still decades behind the U.S.. Chances are that the newest Russian missiles aren't much better than they were twenty years ago, which translates to sixties technology for the U.S.. Russia has a long history of overstating their military technology. Every time Russian military hardware has gone up against U.S. military hardware, the Russian military hardware has gotten trounced.
It's called bluffing.

people seem to really underestimate Russia, you'll regret that.
