We would probably say, "Yeah sure Putin, whatever you say", and go about our usual business of bombing countries that can't really fight back,
because, you know, that's what we do. We haven't had a good fair fight since Viet Nam. On the other hand, do you really think the Russian
bureaucracy is stupid enough to really try to send troops into the US? That would just give us a good excuse to have a real war. With that said,
we'd defend, probably counter-invade/bomb Russia (if we weren't too busy defending), lots of people would die, and in the end a few nukes would
probably fly. As another note, I don't believe the Russians have enough naval landing craft/troop transport aircraft to make an effective attack on
the US, without most of it being shot down/sunk.
You see, the thing is, If 9/11 had been caused by Russian terrorists, we would not have tried to go into Russia saying they were supporting
terrorists, we don't have that much of a death wish. Iraq (and Afghanistan), on the other hand, had little to no chance of being able to defend
itself in the face of a full-on US invasion. The "real" war was over in a matter of days, much like it was in the first Gulf war in '91 when
Saddam invaded Kuwait. After that, it was just guerrilla warfare. If we had left after the gov't was overthrown, we would have lost nearly nobody.
As it was, I dont' really see the point of going into a country to overthrow a gov't when all thats going to happen is the same junk that happened
before. And now, in a repeat of history, we are delivering F-16s to the Iraqi Air Force. I wonder how long until we have to go shoot those down
