ANY all-out nuclear war between the US and Russia would be a lose-lose situation. Both countries, as well as the whole northern hemisphere at very
least, would be toast.
I do see the Russians 'being a bit edgy', and I can't really blame them. I don't think we're intentionally encircling them by any means...it
just so happens that their former satelites are becoming places of other strategic interest to us, so we're there. I can fully understand their
reluctance. Still, I don't think Dubya and Vlad are going to throw away all that time in the pickup truck in Texas away.
They were like a
couple of redneck teenagers in Daddy's truck.
Oh! Russia's got a new super-weapon that makes our super-weapon that isn't even fully designed yet useless! *Yawn* Posturing, I think--nothing
more. Peter the Great's about to sink or go critical, the rest of the fleet's in comparable shape, neither
of the missles they wanted to
fire to impress Vlad made it out of the tubes...and we're supposed to be cowed by some top-secret countermeasure to something we don't even
yet? Are you sure this story didn't come from Pravda
