Russia: Population 140,702,096 that's 281,404,192 number of arms. Assuming all Russians have the correct number of limbs.
America: Population 304,059,724 that's 608,119,448 arms.
If it were truly about the arms, we have a 46.s74% advantage already.
In October 539 BCE, the Persian king Cyrus took Babylon, the ancient capital of an oriental empire covering modern Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. In a broader sense, Babylon was the ancient world's capital of scholarship and science. The subject provinces soon recognized Cyrus as their legitimate ruler. Since he was already lord of peripheral regions in modern Turkey and Iran (and Afghanistan?), it is not exaggerated to say that the conquest of Babylonia meant the birth of a true world empire. The Achaemenid empire was to last for more than two centuries, until it was divided by the successors of the Macedonian king Alexander the Great. A remarkable aspect of the capture of Babylon is the fact that Cyrus allowed the Jews (who were exiled in Babylonia) to return home.

I don't know if this has anything to do with the 10/10/09 World War 3, but there's supposedly going to be a nuclear attack on Washington DC that day.

It’s been milked? Come on, think this out....If the greenback is indeed going to collapse, do you really think that’s the end of big government and taxing smiley faced slaves? Hell, if history has taught us anything, the collapse of the dollar is only going to enhance the government, but, putting all of us into a camp, in which they have to take care of us 24/7 isn’t realistic IMO. They like to pork up the income, and they can’t have that income if they kill all of us.
And they don't care about money, THEY PRINT IT. And it's not about money, it's about control and extermination of the population.
