what an excellent idea!
seriously, i havent thought about this until now and i dont know why. we can work together when it comes to space programs, which are the most
advanced human systems in existence, so why not with Earth based ballistic systems?
sure, Russia has alot of treaties and alliances with communist asian countries and radial islamic countries, but ultimately, they share the European
based, Caucasian culture that the U.S. and NATO do. We all come from a common beginning. Medieval Russia was much, much more similar to Medieval
Europe than it was to Medieval China or Middle East, no? The more you look at it, the more you realize that Russia, the EU, and the USA are closer
culturally and politically than Russia is with say, China, Syria, or Iran.
The problem lies in Russia's military equipment industry. They sell to the Islamic and Communist countries of the mid east and Asia, which is how
they get quite a bit of gross income to boost their economy. However, this doesn't need to be a permanent thing. They could simply sell all their
junk and whilst doing so, develop new methods of attaining monetary assets to replace these weapon sales. Then when the time is right, pull the big
switch over from one way to the next.
Think about it for a moment .. the USA, EU, and Russia in military alliance, particularly in the strategic ballistic missile area, would be
unstoppable. China, North Korea, Iran, Syria, and all their allies combined wouldnt be able to stand up to such a military alliance. China is on the
rise militarily, and soon will be surpassing Russia's position in the global heirarchy of military powers. Russia will not be able to stay as an
isolated power forever, and their only other option would be to join an alliance against the USA and EU/NATO. Culturally, politically, and
geographically this wouldnt make much sense.
I just think to keep the human race in check globally from self destructing in a nuclear holocaust, the Northern powers that surround the North pole
specificly need to form a strategic alliance against the up and coming communist and islamic powers. These powers are hungry enough to make a move on
a weakened northern nation if they get the opportunity, not to mention against Israel, which I havent even mentioned in this post until now.
Ultimately Israel would be on the same "side" as the EU and the USA.
But how else can I put it .. soon the technology factor that keeps certain nations so far "ahead" of other nations in war fighting ability will be
lessened to the point where all nations will basicly have the same level of technology. When this happens, population and willpower come into play so
much more than they do now, and the Northern powers just wouldnt survive any prolonged conflict unless they ALL teamed up. Right now China could give
Russia a HARD fight.. and the Islamic powers could give the E.U. an equally hard fight, were it not for Israel and the USA being in the way, so to
speak. As the years go by, the situation is only going to worsen for the "West", which includes Russia, so maybe we should change the term "West"
to the "North".
If Russia stays isolated, we'd be looking at the use of eventual nuclear weaponry the next time a major world conflict arises, particularly if it
involves Iran and/or China, and who else would it involve?
Besides .. if they did this, they could turn the North Pole into some type of uber ballistics base or missile defense base (a major misisle shield
covering Russia, Europe, and North America), with an underground base system to boot, accessable by all northern powers.
