Russian Military Power

Even considering that this is to a large extent a propaganda tool, we may take it that the Russian armed forces are capable of protecting Russia and inflicting unacceptable damage to any enemy. So, maybe it is time to stop poking the bear and forget about idiotic sanctions.

I actually agree that everyday Americans gain nothing when U.S. policymakers act aggressively against the Putin regime, and that however weak the Russian economy might be, the Russians have more than enough military might and sufficiently advanced technology to defend themselves from any aggressor.

Yes, and besides having "more than enough military might," etc., the Russians have time and space on their side - as Napoleon (and Hitler) found out.
