Re: Iran will soon be able to say "up yours" to the USA and Israel alike.

That's very odd because I was under the impression that in US general elections more American Jews normally vote Democrat than for the Republican Party. They could not be so silly as to vote against their own best interests, could they? Against their own best interests :) ? As far I know, most Amer...

Re: Russian Orbital Space Station

On the other hand maybe Russia will prefer to build a space station together with Europe or China. We will have to wait and see... Thanks for the info. I found this link in Russian with reference to original discussions in 2020, plus additional details. Extract: According to the materials, which pr...

Re: Can Americans Win Wars?

With the exception of the Marine Corps (180,000 active) and a few special forces, such as the Seals, the American ground forces are useless. Made mainly up of National Guard week-end soldiers, they wouldn't last a week against Russian or Chinese soldiers. Hmmm... your argument is entirely reputatio...

Re: Can Americans Win Wars?

The US could do that. Check their Army, check their Air Force. Compare with Russia. But the point is entirely theoretical. Russia could make this endeavour far too costly for the American people to accept paying such a price. Like by using a first nuclear strike? In the very hypothetical case where...

Re: Can Americans Win Wars?

- Conquering the Donbass for the sake of Ukrainian government. Technically doable using US forces and without crossing Russia's threshold to go nuclear... but a long and very costly endeavour (tens of thousands KIA probably) and the American people would clearly be difficult to convince to pay such...

Re: Can Americans Win Wars?

1. America can't win unwinnable wars, that is those whose political objective (all wars are fought for political objectives) is not attainable + those which cannot technically be won (that is, with present technology) + those which the American people is not convinced the price for victory would be ...

Re: Are we ready to rumble?

Both Putin and the CCP have stated that they will use tactical nuclear weapons in a "limited" way in a war. No. Here is the Russian official military doctrine . From the original source , on Kremlin site, by V.V. Putin himself (see page 12-13 point 27) По-русски, конечно :) The Russian Federation r...

Most probably not... but

In four words: Most probably not... but 1. No world war could start from the Ukraine situation, for the very simple reason that Russia is the only major power which is interested enough in Ukraine to use military force there. It is absolutely clear that no Western European nor North American country...

America and Russia

America and Russia definitely have common points.

Are they really similar? Well... not quite, actually.

And their security services have different methods:

Re: Biden Being Tripped Under Putin's Orders

Truth is that Putin may be a killer... But he's not such a good shooter.



However, let's see it from the bright side: Biden moves skillfully :-)
