Im quite surprised that more and more people seem to be so frustrated that armchair warriors here are advocating what would become a nuclear conflict.
" A couple of weeks from now we'll see how brave Russia is."

I think Europe owes its liberation to great extent to the 20 plus millions of Russians who fought and lost their lives. What happened after in the USSR Soviet Union and the subsequent Stalin invasions of Eastern Europe is a sepparate matter.
But Stalin is gone and The US led west should stop capitalizing on peoples fears.
There is not a nation on the planet as violent as?

You people are delusional, as you can see the carriers are back. The sparrow missile system is more than capable of shooting down the Iskander missile. Plus, with such a short range those rust buckets that the Russian Navy uses would not be able to get close enough to fire them. A couple of weeks from now we'll see how brave Russia is.
