It's a pity the West counts itself so global that it excludes Russia from interests they consider sovereign, virtuous and vital.

Labeling Russia bad only because it is contiguous with the Asian interior & because itsr Church is the Greek version dooms Russia to showing force to use that Sea on what should be a right.

That Russia is big is not a problem. except for those who want to put a single monarchy over A Whole Planetary League of competing lesser monarchies.

Like any other spinning sphere in a star system of far larger spinning spheres, that is bound to be difficult and always in flux.

Maybe so, my pompous friend, but no one including the vaunted special forces can defeat a few hundred nuclear missiles.

  



The U.S. is about to lose and lose big this time. They've made too many enemies on too many fronts. [/quote]

It takes more than one missile to sink a carrier. Russia has missiles but has to get close first.

  

Russia has nuclear submarines that can travel undectected from radar underwater to strike foreign warships. Russia's warships do not have to get close to foreign warships at all. Also, on deck, Russia has the best anti-missle defense system, the S-500.

Both Russian and Iran have well-quipped submarines that are not detected by radar underwater. Russia's anti-missles defense systems: S-300, S-400, and S-500 (S-500 -the best) are far superior to the USA's out-dated Patriot missle defense system. On tests Israel did last summer, the Patriot was failing to defend approx 50% of the targets. Also, two USA-made, F-16 jet fighter planes crashed in Israel during practice runs. The USA has foolishly been spending its money fighting wars, and it has not focused on improving its military equipment.

Technology is irrelevant in warfare ... Afghanistan, Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq,

  


Th e key is the ability of a President to persuede the American People that it is in their interest to wage war and keep fighting it till complete victory is achieved. There are few Americans who have the intestinal fortitude and the willingness to perform the neccessary amount of violence it would take to win large scale conlicts any longer. Our male children are being indoctrinated to become more and more unnaturally feminized.

There are only two types of warship - targets and submarines. With the rapid advance in missile technlogy and the volume of missiles that can be deployed a suface ship is a sitting duck.

All Russia requires is a Guided Missile Destroyer with powerful radar and Yakhton anti-ship missiles ..... and down goes the aircraft carriers!

You build warships to fight battles and dominate the seas. They're not built to look pretty!
