3 very powerfull people thought exactly the same as you, there names were:
Napoleon
Wilhelm II
And
Adolf Hitler

All thought the Russians were backwards and there military in shambles. All three had some of the best militarys of there time.

All three got there arses kicked.


If Obama not carefull he could very well join that list.



As if the US/West would be stupid enough to invade Russia as per the examples you have given. There wont be any attack on Russia. Get a grip.

By the Way...

The Russian Winter had beaten Napoleon
Wilhelm as you put it actually relaxed the Eastern front forces when the Russian troops pretty much went home and started a revolution shortly there after.

Come on wok, you could do better than that.

I know your not advocating my position, but thanks Slayer. You always seem to bring needed perspective to our conversations.

We were not fighting a war in those places, there were not tanks and ships and planes and artillery positions to attack.

It was asymmetric warfare, with no targets and nothing but civies on all sides.

These are not a comparison at all.

We completely crushed the Iraqi army in less than a week. That was warfare, the rest was occupation.

At first.....no, honestly we would nuke somebody within hours tops. To show the American people they are going to prosecute those responsible in the face of millions of deaths. Those actually responsible would likely get away with it personally, but their peoples would suffer a great cost, their families, their friends, their lands.

Would it be worth it to them?

That is the real question.

Yeah it's not like anyone has to choose sides in a world at war. It's really pathetic. We're a world stained by the blood of constant wars since we were savages fighting in the wild and hunting buffalos. There's a difference between a human and a buffalo, a retard and a savant, a coward and a warrior. If I'm fighting for anything I'm fighting for peace. I'm a civil disobedient. There. I apologize but all these conflicts are really going over my head. We have a chemical attack in Syria that looks like it comes from Russia but that Obama blames on Mossad. Then we have an uprising in Egypt that gets overthrown by the muslim brotherhood, which nobody trusted in the first place. Then we have the slaughter of communists across the world. Then we have the rape and murder of christians in Iran. Then we have the interrogation and torture, the lies, the secrets. What do we know anymore but ignorance and our polluted earth. Have enough people died at this point for people just to stop being fanatical murderers? And THEN we have Putin rounding up the Russians to attack the West. Can it get anymore Ironic? And of course, paid for by Hollywood and brought to you by the CIA. Next all the idiots in the entire universe, they'll be turning into monkeys and sending themselves back to the original planet. You know, the one that smashed into us a few freaking many years ago. I don't even know what's going on. You can't get over the media anymore. I can't follow any news because it's just watered down pretentious nonsense, but I've heard there are drones in the sky now.

Russia still survived and the powers that attcked them collasped. Going into war with Russia is normaly a bad idea.

I never said Russia would launch a strategic attack on the west. That would be suicide.

But they could very well use tactical nukes on the battle field. IF these nukes are just used on the battle field against military targets and positions then MAD could still remain in place. Of course you have the risk of escalation. But in theory you could have a limited nuclear war. As long as some idiot don’t launch a megaton range strategic nuke at city.
If the war is contained in the Crimea then I doubt that will happen. But if the west let it spill into Russian territory I would 100% expect to see Russia defend its own land with tactical nukes.

Out right warefare ? occupation? Just words.

If the occupation phase costs more and kills more than the outright warefare then its still a massive problem.

If you're right then we are headed for war. If I'm right we will be sitting here over the next few weeks, months and years discussing the issues of the day. Let's hope I'm right and you and many others here are wrong...

Nicholas II would disagree with you.

This is an almost incoherent array of individual thoughts placed together in one paragraph.

I agree with most of it though!!!


Star for you

I agree there probably wont be, but it will only be because Putin has a cooler head than Hussein and Kerry. Why would Kerry basically dare another man unless he wants a conflict.

Kerry should STFU

In my not so humble opinion.

I missed the part were German troops marched down the streets of Moscow in WW1?

Germany still lost world war I

Russia still remained russian albit without a monarch.

It also got completely bulldozed by Russia in world war 2

So did Napoleon.

You missing my point.

Russia may be awful at fighting beyond its borders. But as soon as Russia is put on the defensive its a whole different game.
Don’t see why the USA is exception to this rule. If they outright attack Russia the result will be a lot of Dead Americans and Europeans.

You can rar rar chest beat as much as you like. Still don’t change the fact that all out war with Russia would be a very very bad idea.

If the war is contained within the Crimea? Probably the USA, EU and Ukraine will win. If it spills over? I wouldn’t hold my breath.

I agree totally.

The real question in this though is who actually attacked us? Nobody actually knows.

We blamed Iraq, we blamed Afghanistan, these were mostly Saudi's yet they got nothing.........pretty messed up really IMHO.

Something I do agree with you on.

Childish behaviour. "OOO I dare you” Pathetic

Remember what I said a few posts about not trusting our leaders with a preschool spelling bee?

So about you saying our leaders won’t be stupid enough to full out attack Russia?

I agree with everything you said here. There is nothing I can even begin to make a counterpoint on.

Though you did ignore the fact Russia is going to be the aggressor here, and that means that we for once wont be the bad guys.

This goes a very long way in the hearts and minds campaign that will obviously follow in the propaganda war.
