No, not all, but many Americans on ATS are stuck in a Cold War Mentality.
Many American ATS members are blinded by American Bravado and tend to underestimate opposing countries. When it comes to discussions regarding
potential battle scenarios, many American ATSers are quick to underestimate countries like China or Russia by stating that their military is stuck in
the 60's, 70's or 80's, and that the US would smash them in a battle scenario.
While i have no doubt that the US could and may mop the floor with China (it depends on a lot of scenarios), it is moronic to state that Russia and
China can not succeed in battle because of 40 ~ year old hardware. For all the Average ATSer knows, Russia and China could have some super secret #
(just as the US do).
I think it is time to grow out of this Cold War mentality.
