Will there be war between US and Russia in the future? info


Do you think there could be war between the US and Russia in the future?

Cold War may be over for now... but there's still a lot of distrust between them.

Who is on the upper hand should there be such a conflict?

and will it be near in the future after Putin is gone?



WHY IN THE WORLD DO WE NEED TO FIGHT SO OFTEN? HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THE BABIES?

No, not likely, as it is in neither nations interests, at the present time, and it would be costly, on both sides..... and perhaps go Nuclear very quickly.
Russia would have to attack first in my own opinion.

The Military Industrial Complex in the United States needs Enemies, and a lot of them to stay in business at current levels.

We do, as far as I'm concerned. Russia has more Countries right around Russia who do not like Russia than we have right around us who do not like us, and we would use such to our advantage.

I don't see much wrong with Putin, well, as long as he leaves once his term is up, and the Elections in Russia are fair.
I'd guess it would depend on who takes over Russia once he is out of power as to if Russia makes the first move.

how does one country could go to war with her best customer?
As long as Russia lives off a sale of her natural resources to the West, it can't go to War with the West...

Only time can tell if such a war would break out. Odds are, as stated above, direct conflict would not happen easily. However, there are things missed by most people, particularly then tension betweeb the US and Russia over the Republic of Georgia and three states north of Tblisi. Also, the US is the ONLY nation blocking Russia from investing in EU energy companies, a fact that only slows Russias economic progression.

One other thing, Regional ties should never be forgotten on a battlefield. Russia and China, although different, still work together on some issues, like this joint military operation. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asi...ic/4161660.stm Not to mention Indias cooperation with both Russia and China. Neither one of these countries will let the US annhilate a supporter, customer, supplier, etc. without some kind of conflict. Although IMO they will not directly help, but instead funnel money and supplies into the country much like Iran does with Iraq currently.

Who cares about a war between Russia and the United States? In fact, who cares about a war between the United States and the rest of the world? The American Air Force alone has the power to eliminate all potential enemies -- tactically in terms of military forces and strategically in terms of infrastructure. After that, the bombers can make the rubble bounce.

But how is the US going to win the political war afterwards?

what if Russia makes the first strike?

to start a war, it just takes a few top men running the nation to move the country to go to war...

when they start a war, it is not logical or even predictable to analysts why they do that,
but the reason to attack is always perfectly sane and acceptable to the war starters themselves.

a war between the US and Russia just isn't practical for either side, whether it be now or sometime in the future. there's the possiblity of it going nuclear, and lord know's that the rest of the world doesn't want that.

Jesus Christ. "Who cares about a war?"

How about the people who will die in it, or lose their family members to it? And the corporations making billions off of them.

A war with Russia would be even worse, because there's a great chance of it going nuclear and resetting the planet Earth.
