Russia Can Destroy Us – Top U.S. Army General

Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the U.S., according to Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley. The General called Russia an existential threat to the U.S., speaking in front of the audience at the Defense One summit in Washington, DC on Monday.

Milley also considers Russia “aggressive” and “adversarial to the interests of the United States,” which is why Moscow’s nuclear weapons are capable of destroying the U.S.

The General warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent behavior suggest the country would be willing to use nuclear weapons. Milley also noted that Russia has been violating “the Westphalian order” ever since it started invading “sovereign nations” in 2008.

In fact, there are some important links between private equity and the current economic environment. A closer look at PE reveals that the industry often serves as a leading indicator Read More

Milley has already called Russia an existential threat during his confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate back in July. Two weeks prior to his confirmation hearing, U.S. General James Dunford used the same phrasing during his own Senate confirmation hearing to become the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“I would say that Russia’s recent behavior is adversarial to the interests of the United States,” Milley said, referring to Russia’s aggressive drills and patrols with its troops, aircraft and submarines for the past “four-five-six-seven” years. “Russia bears close watching,” he added.

The audience then asked whether Russia should be considered an enemy rather than a partner, but Milley responded with an urge to a “strength and balance sort of approach, which is our current policy.”

While diplomacy is very “nuanced,” Russia must be fought with sanctions and NATO’s confident stance, he noted. However, the General added that the U.S. must cooperate with Russia on matters that require involvement of both Washington and Moscow.

Russia’s military far more advanced than that of U.S. – American analyst

Russia is far more advanced and superior in terms of military technologies than the U.S., while the recent American missile tests were nothing but a “bluff” to trick people into thinking the U.S. military could easily counter even such a nuclear-powerful adversary as Russia, according to an American counter-terrorism analyst.

Scott Bennett, a former U.S. Army psychological warfare officer, said in an interview with Press TV on Monday that this is something Washington typically does: it tells its military brass to show off in front of its Russian counterparts, claiming that American missile technology is “the absolute end-all technology that can determine any war.”

The analyst’s comments come just a day after the U.S. military carried out a $230 million test involving Lockheed Martin’s Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) systems and the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) equipped onto the USS John Paul Jones destroyer.

The results of the test showed that the missile systems were capable of successfully hitting their targets in all but one of the tests. The tests with the missile systems involved a medium-range ballistic missile fired from C-17 aircraft.

During one of the tests, a SM-3 missile fired from the warship failed mid-air in its flight and missed the target. But the THAAD system was capable of taking the failed shot out.

“From a psychological warfare perspective, I see this as a massive bluff, as just a lot of feather puffing, and [it] really doesn’t have a lot of substance because the technology is not there and the Russian technology as we know is far superior,” Bennett said.

Bennett sees this elaborate $230 million missile test as a standard military test, while Washington wants to make it look as if it is more lethal than it really is.

U.S. will be responsible for deaths in Syria, not Russia – Analyst

The analyst also believes that the test is an attempt of the U.S. to assure its allies in the Middle East, who turn away from Washington one by one because of its incompetence in Syria, that the U.S. still has what it takes to maintain influence in the region. The tests seem to fall in line with U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision to send Special Operation forces to Syria.

Bennett expects Russia to call the bluff and warn the U.S. that if it sends American troops to Syria, “the Russian coalition will not be held responsible for any deaths that may result.”

Bennett also called Obama’s decision “a potential trap.” “It is an attempt to try and goad Russia, I think, into maneuvers and bombings that can kill a lot of American troops for the purposes of triggering a larger US action.”

The analyst also suspects that there might be a connection between the U.S. missile tests and the recent Russian plane crash over Egypt’s Sinai desert which killed 224 passengers on board, including 25 children and 7 crew members.

Russian navy presents threat to U.S.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is discussing the possibility to station more of its ships and naval objects in Europe as a response to Russia’s most threatening naval operations in two decades, according to the new U.S. Navy chief of naval operations.

The U.S. Navy is now reassessing its global stance to counter the aggressive activity of Russian warships and submarines, Admiral John Richardson, chief of naval operations said in an interview with the Financial Times.

“Their submarine force and their navy are as active as they have been in a long time, 20 years or so,” Admiral Richardson noted. “How are we going to posture our forces to make sure that we maintain the appropriate balance and are suitably engaged?”

The Admiral also said that the U.S. Navy is considering to step up its presence in Europe and the Pacific. “That’s the conversation we’re having right now.”

Russian Admiral Viktor Chirkov, the chief of the Russian navy, recently said that Russian submarine patrols have increased by 50 percent from 2013.

  1. Absolutely correct. USA has a bigger empire than Russia now. Just because we’re winning now does not mean you get to cry about it. Both sides do it. The USA just takes over and tells it’s captives that they are now free while the Russians absorbed them into their empire probable because they are right next to them.

  2. Seriously I’ve heard this argument before from a highly intelligent American with missle technology knowledge. We are behind the Russians in missle technology for sure. We are developing hyperspeed missiles but they are not ready yet and the F35 ia a joke as we all know but as long as we do not invade Russia we do not have anything to worry about. The problem is we might have to.

  3. Nevertheless the NATO warmongers continue to bark and to tease the grizzly bear near its borders. What do they want, a postmodern way of suicide?

  4. Russia will not be alone against the US + US’s

    vassals (Europe + Israhell). That’s for sure. Besides winning a war is not about numbers,
    is about strategy, and none of them outsmart Russia. All of them will die trying. Just
    take a look at the history of Russia ( Napoleon, Hitler… etc. )

  5. You still sound like standard USA troll with standard tactic to chase away whole world. Its funny how only USA commenters defend USA and all rest are against you. And still you shamelessly call whole world Russians. Thats good inf act. Whole world will just get more mad and mad at you and youre terorism.

  6. Nationalism does to people to support USA agressor who never had war on own soil but always thousand miles from own home. USA never defended. Alway attacked. Like Hitler they bomb other countries…

  7. Its logical and common sence… Maybe try with thousand different nicks to type thousand different comments. Not all same with same patterns and tactic.

  8. Mr paid troll You dont know nothing. Keep made up lies and made fake accounts… Youre days of supporting ISIS and terrorist is long over…

  9. its not to scare you or the yanktards its to educate your self first! unfortunately for the EURO/America/anglosaxon, China, Russia, Iran, are not the native America Indians they murdered and stole their land created by hollywood movies the natives were the aggressors, AGAIN they are not IRAQ,LIBYA, nor Afghanistan the anglos have not had a legitimate adversary till now THE CHOICE IS YOURS its that simple!

  10. “Get a better arguement” he says. Really? I guess I should have chosen an example that was more menacing? Dumba$$

  11. Because Russia expels people and destroys their homes down to the foundation; renames the villages, which are older, than Russia, to sound “Russia-like”.

  12. If you expect PUTN to solve as you said “swindling the West dry”, then you are either a hopeless idiot – – the inhabitant of the BEDLAM, or a communist. Both of the honorary titles are about one and the same ~hit you have in your brainpan. Unfortunately, the only way of getting the Planet Earth rid of the junk like you is a nuclear bomb. And this article is about it.

  13. Sounds like you are a traitor to your own people. You need to knock off the chokin’ of the chicken while watching Fox News at night. It lowers your IQ the more you do it to the point where you can’t even carry on a rational discussion with another high school graduate…..like yourself!!

    You need to bone up on the fallacies of the Western privately owned and operated for profit and foreign controlled central banking system that is bleeding or I should say swindling the West dry…..

    Do you know what the privately owned and foreign controlled central banks are all
    about in the EU and the U.S.? How would you like to?

    I’ll give you a hint they print money out of thin air and lend it to those governments,
    as well as other folks at interest. In any other line of work that would be
    considered counterfeiting!! How would you like to print money up on a monthly
    basis to pay off your credit card statement? That my friends is the best
    analogy I can think of!!

    Wake up bud, that’s why the BRICs arrangement has arisen, and that’s why Russia has a bulls-eye on its butt….it has nothing to do with Ukraine, or any leader being a thug or about democracy, which the U.S. doesn’t even have anymore…… Russians have been in Crimea and the east continuously for well over 300 years, since they beat the Ottoman Turks!!! The folks that conduct international business
    and trade want a stable currency that maintains its value as the international
    standard…which the petro dollar isn’t anymore, as it is depreciating as we
    speak!! It’s all about having a stable monetary arrangement out there. The
    Federal government/Treasury needs to flat-out nationalize the Federal Reserve
    Banks and issue currency itself with oversight from Congress. To allow the
    privately owned and foreign controlled Federal Reserve Banks to continue to
    operate for profit and without any Federal oversight/audits is flat-out
    suicidal and the system will end up collapsing in the near future, as this type
    of financial system creates more and more accumulated interest to the point
    where there is so much more interest and debt in circulation than money with
    which to pay off that debt/interest and any profits/money made by the general
    public has to be used to pay off the debt/interest, instead of reinvesting to
    create new technologies, jobs, etc.

  14. Truth hurts, but sadly it’s only way to life!
    America is back in the control of their former tormentor British, but they’re so blind to see it and so deaf to hear that they’re going down without going back fast to justice and truth!

  15. Sadly, most Americans are as ignorant as their ‘British controlled’ leaders, that is why they forgot so soon how they got to the ‘evaporating freedom’ they perceive they have today, not knowing that the enemy of Peace and Freedom ‘British’ has succeeded in taking over the control of America they lost after ‘war of independence’, that is why today US rather than support global Freedom is busy bullying weak ones and using British divide and rule system, causing chaos, terror and death all over for British interest.
    What many ignorant Americans fail to know is that Britain is the citadel of Satan on earth, and they are doing the evil bidding of Satan everywhere they enter ( check all their colonies). Soon Britain will reduce US -Americans- to their former level -subjects under their evil monarchy-, before the America war of independence.
    Any country/nation that want their peace and freedom must cut off every close links with Britain or… sorry!

  16. Because:

    1) Russia expels the native population and irons their homes with tanks down to the foundation.
    2) Russia plasters the interiors and exteriors of old Christian churches on the invaded territories, which had been built centuries earlier before Russia appeared on maps. So that no sign except plastered Russian is left to proclaim the culture “true Russian”.
    3) On the occupied territories Russia renames villages, towns, rivers, valleys, etc., to sound like Russian to erase even a reminder of the people who lived there millenniums before the Russian was first spoken.
    4) Russia puts barbed wire fences and check-points across farm lands so that a farmer has to go through the immigration procedures every day to visit his garden and back home.
    6) Russian officials steal toilet pans from their offices in OSCE.
    AND EVERYTHING WE ATTAINED, WE WILL NOT RETURN TO THE ENEMY
    (from Red Army song)
    7) Russian soldiers destroyed the house of the first translator of Shakespeare to Georgian (1852), the whole village with it, and plan to build an airstrip on the place.
    8) Russian soldiers put women and children in front to hide behind them.

  17. “Milley also noted that Russia has been violating “the Westphalian order” ever since it started invading “sovereign nations” in 2008.”
    Seriously – why the americans think than they can invade sovereign nations and no one else can’t?!

  18. Supposed Russian military superiority, nuclear wars…. you’d think the two countries are on the verge of an all-out war. What kind of author writes such sensationalistic nonsense???

  19. brian ; i know that i love life and cherish living in and being an American…i know Putin has intimidated this country most recently in the deep where cables to work for us in times of tension or war; to on the 4th of july he had bombers at our coastline with or without nukes is immaterial….brian ; that and other actions are?? from my neighborhood in chgo. 50 years ago would be a punk sir!! take it or leave it my friend …thats the way it is!! if u dont believe what hear or what you read or what you see i will agree you are probably better off…. but for you and i sir thats how i feel!! take it or leave it…Putin has the button most likely to end your life and mine!! i am confident if he were to use his powers…YOU WOULD FIND HIM A PUNK AMONG OTHER CHOSEN WORDS THAT WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED HERE…

  20. While all eyes are on Russia, let’s not forget that the Chinese also have nukes and they are buddy buddy with the Russians. However, neither country wants a war, they just want to do business, but the neo-cons in Washington want every American to believe that war is the only way to protect the American way. How about bringing the troops home, fix the problems in the US and put people back to work in factories by bringing the jobs back from China. Then compete on the economic front. The future war will not be a repeat of WWII. It will be destruction with no clear winner. These people who push war are insane and are too caught up in hubris to face the facts.

  21. What do you know about Putin? You only know what you read from a very biased media. What world leader does not have some kind of dirt on their hands? Calling him a punk is just repeating like a parrot what you have read in the media. Do your own thinking and try to come up with something original. BTW there are a lot of punks in US politics as well.

  22. They have the money now, because they can print all they want as long as the rest of the world still accepts the US dollar. Both China and Russia have been working hard to kill the dollar as a reserve currency. When that day comes then truly they will not have any more money to fight wars. This is far more potent that atomic bombs. The economic bombs will do the most damage.

  23. Valuewalk is Junk News at Best, it’s the equivalent of the Gossip News in the checkout lane of your local supermarket. Valuewalk my friend you Suck!!!

  24. So Iraq being friendly means that the US lost the war? Pitty your reasoning? The US fought two wars simultaneously in Iraq and Afghanistan and left Iraq people to defend their country. It was not the US business to remain in Iraq. If Iraq soldiers could not fight for their country and instead lay down their arms when ISIS stuck and not fight like Kurds, then that is their own problem.

  25. This is truth, not russian sided. Russia has more nukes than the U.S. And its ICBM is the most advanced in the world that can penetrate any airspace. The U.S. Is a match to iraq, libya, and maybe north korea. But with russia, remember that both countries are going to turn into a dust bowl. You are stupid if you think with all out nuclear war there is a winner. If the U.S. Was confident of what you said, then they would of attacked russia a long time ago. Your just living the american dream lie.

  26. obviously this is written by a Russian and is one sided propaganda, The Us is far superior to the Russian military and can destroy any Russian attack with little effort ,In a free speech society papers like this can be printed but intelligent people of the US know it is totally false propaganda .

  27. Russia could destroy the US and we could destroy Russia its been that way for decades. Unless they’ve magically come up with a defense for the thousands of nukes we have stationed all over the world. Sure maybe the Russians could stop one or two maybe even ten nukes but how about a thousand? It only takes one to ruin someones day, so lets not blow each other up.

  29. Antagonism is a problem. Antagonism with nuclear bomb in hands is catastrophe.
    IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM USING THE SAME
    METHODS AS THOSE THAT CREATED THE PROBLEM
    Every year thousands of the Russian students, sponsored by the Russian Government, go to the USA Universities to learn something. But the main thing they learn in the USA is that you have to work hard if you want to CATCH UP WITH AMERICA. But working hard is not in nature of Russians:
    THE WORK IS NOT A WOLF, WILL NOT RUN AWAY INTO THE FOREST.
    (?????? ?? ????, ? ??? ?? ??????).
    Russian proverb.
    Russian students in the USA realize that working hard means loosing Russian Identity.
    This is where the antagonism towards USA comes from and cult of the leader being fueled.

    Pretty tiny author of this article having been among the USA students’ Russian folks.

  30. War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
    Smedley Butler

    The Banking / Corporate dynasties are telling us their plan which has no benefit for the majority of AmericansBanking.

    Corporate dynasties and ISIS
    Step ONE – BROAD AGENDAThe powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank…sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.
    Tragedy and Hope – Carroll Quigley

    THE PETRO DOLLAR
    the only way that it can be sustained is if the demand for the dollar and for U.S. debt securities remains consistently strong.Grasping this point is extremely important. For if the artificial global dollar demand, made possible by the petrodollar system, were ever to crumble, foreign nations who had formerly found it beneficial to hold U.S. dollars would suddenly find that they no longer needed the massive number that they were holding. This massive number of dollars, which would no longer be useful to foreign nations, would come rushing back to their place of origin… America.Obviously, an influx of dollars into the American economy would lead to massive inflationary pressures within our economic system.

    Step TWO – SPECIFIC AGENDA
    “We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran” –General Wesley Clark. Retired 4-star U.S. Army general, Supreme AlliedCommander of NATO during the 1999 War on Yugoslavia .The need to maintain the Federal Reserve Note as the world currency:Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and his Iranian counterpart Bijan Zanganeh signed a five-year memorandum of understanding in Moscow, which included cooperation in the oil sector. The end of the petro dollar will mean federal reserve notes and treasury securities inundating the american economy

    Step Three – CIA is commissioned to cause chaos so Nato can come in and bomb the government and take it down
    A fallen government leaves open doors for NATO. This means that once all these countries have fallen you can invade and install puppet governments, without world criticism.Iraqui army are ordered to vacate bases and leave military hardware behind. Why? To arm Isis so that they could attack syria

    Advertised publicly as training of ‘non-extremist’ Muslim jihadists to wage war against the Syrian Bashar Assad regime, the secret US training camps in Jordan and elsewhere have trained perhaps several thousand Muslim fighters in techniques of irregular warfare, sabotage and general terror. The claims by Washington that they took special care not to train ‘Salafist’ or jihadist extremists, is a joke. How do you test if a recruit is not a jihadist? Is there a special jihad DNA that the CIA doctors have discovered?

    Step Four – The Art of Propaganda. The Spin Doctors and Mainstream media
    The humble beginning of media controlSecond Session64th CongressOf the United States of AmericaU.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, ship building and powder interests and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press in the United States.“These 12 men worked the problems out by selecting 179 newspapers, and then began, by an elimination process, to retain only those necessary for the purpose of controlling the general policy of the daily press throughout the country. They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. The 25 papers were agreed upon; emissaries were sent to purchase the policy, national and international, of these papers; an agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.

  31. This is the same reason why George W. Bush stepped on cat poop, “Fear.” Mr. General, wherever there are mass weapons of destruction exists, threat is always there and nothing new. But, Your fear can cost lives and fear has been costing lives since invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Osama was found in Pakistan after all not Afghanistan. Suppose many Americans who died, if they somehow speak and hear, what would it be going through their mind about hunting Osama and do they willing to accept that they died for attacking wrong country? Hell no! Only way is to genuinely eliminate threat is to give up desire, delusion and anger within people and give up weapons in all the countries which is not going to happen. Until then, U.S. show what they got, Russian show what they got, China show what they got, NATO shows what they got? Somebody gotta realize that only innocents die while politicians playing war games.
    Mr. General, do not forget that the other countries think the same that U.S. got the most nuclear weapons than any country in the world.

  32. The good general mentions how Russia invaded sovereign nations. OK. But of course, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Bosnia, Kuwait, no, those are not sovereign nations. Only an idiot would not see the forked tongue. Ukraine is right NEXT to Russia, and Syria has been an ally of Russia for 5 decades or more. Iraq, is not exactly near Massachusetts or California, and Afghanistan where Americans die weekly, is not near Florida or Alaska. BRING EM ALL HOME, defend JUST the United States. But no cant have that.

  33. There really is no substance to this. Neither the US nor Russia are ‘superior’. Is it possible for Russia to destroy the US without itself being destroyed or the other way round? The answer is no.
    When mankind entered the nuclear age, security settled on the shaky sanity of leaders.

  34. If you click on the top of the article right about where it say ” Polina Tikhonova
    You will see that she is Russian .. If you look her up on face book. It says she lives in. Moscow Furthermore read all the articles that she had writing… You will get the hint that she is ANTI -AMERICAN…

  35. Putin needs to read Mikhail Gorbachev author of “Perestroika: New Thinking For Our Country and the World”
    (c) by Mikhail Gorbachev 1997 (New York: Harper & Row Publishers) before it’s to late for the ex-KGB Berlin Station chief. Putin seems to forgets, if we go down, Putin goes down too.

  36. Some Americans agree that the USA does not need to be the policeman of the world. We don’t have the money and cannot continue to fight everybody else’s wars. Let these other nations defend themselves.

  37. Another bunch of propaganda to get the US defense budget increased over the 2/3 of a trillion dollars that we already spend annually for defense all over the world.

  38. I don’t believe this. Humanity is in a position were we can pretty much wipe out everyone is a 15 mile radius. Military wireless networks can broadcast over a 30 mile radius, and repeater drones can further extend those networks 30 miles as many times as you like. Most of this is already in place by America, China, Russia, and Europe.

    America are a good bit ahead. Where ever your reading that crap, its bullshit.

    Countries that have embargoes from these services are.

    Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
    Cuba
    Gaza Strip
    Syria

  39. This is a blatantly obvious attempt to rile people up.
    If the US wasn’t what they are the international community wouldn’t allow them to get away with what they get away with.
    You can always find some “expert” to quote to support any stupid argument you want.

  40. Which war has the American’s won since WWII? They have destroyed a lot of countries, but that is not a victory if you can not control them. Iraq now is more friendly with Iran and Russia. Is that an American victory?

  41. Not sure the context of your question. Was the US responsible for a coup in Kosovo?? The KLA was formed some seven years before the 15 month war and received arms from Albania.

  42. This is how the defense industry scares people into spending money on useless projects, like the nukes themselves. If Russia were to use nukes against the US the Russians themselves would all die anyway by destroying the planetary ecosystem. So nukes are useless.

  43. If they could they would have already. We have your IP address. When we destroy Russia and China we will come for you.

  44. I just think it’s funny that America tries to take care of the world when they cannot even take care of their own country. I am American and was proud when I was young because I was supposed to be. We were supposed to be this great nation everyone looked up to but now all I see is greed. Russia’s purpose for Syria is not financial gains, like America and Iraq or any other American war for that matter, yes people, war is America’s legal business if you don’t already know. This conflict reminds me of Russia-Afghan war, Russia was losing money for this when America steps in and helps the extremists. Russia was in financial ruin. Then years later, the people that America was trying to help, kills thousands of our people and destroys countless lives, mentally. So, the topic is Russia can destroy America. What you need to know is that Russia does not want to destroy America. America is the little kid that just wants in everyone’s business.

  45. According to the Democrats we are supposed to treat them with compassion even if they try to kill us. By the way, I believe strongly in the second Amendment

  46. Why would Russia want to beat America. If the Russians occupy the US they’ll have to feed the Americans and that is a difficult task.

  47. This general can say anything! He wants more billions of American taxpayer to! I’m sorry, if you believe it US citizens :(
    Greetings from Russia!

  48. The general told the gullible audience – give us money so we can spend them on ourselves because there are scary people out there.
    The people asked – but are these scary people our enemies?
    It doesn’t matter – said the experienced general – you give us you money anyway.
    A-a-a – said the impressed public.

  49. Putin reminds me of a punk from the old neighborhood that would get his butt kicked occasionally and now is a fricken meglomaniac!!! he has huge testicals and our leader has none!! if the crappola hit the fan i believe Putin would not hesitate to push buttons and Barack would take a wait and see while the u.s.a. would be getting wiped out!! it is minutes to my understanding that we wipe out the planet not hours but minutes….does that make you uncomfortable…wake up and smell the coffee people…God bless America!!

  50. You really need to ask “how is Russia aggressive”? Seriously? When referring the US in Iraq, lest we forget Russias invasion of Afghanistan?? Saddam Hussein, like Assad, used chemical weapons on his own ppl.
    Id also say the moderate rebels the US supports are a far cry from the real terrorist regime of Assad. Russia isnt going after ISIS only, but any group that opposes Assad.
    I just love how, without evidence mind uou, the US is always behind every coup lol. Lets look at the facts and then reach a realistic conclusion about the US and Russias aggression.

  51. nobody wants that war but in todays world the ONLY threat is US. Only US starts wars all over, kills millions and then teaches others how to behave.

  52. You are the most naive person i know so u preferred to have a strong military and have pple starve dur to a rotten economy.If u are white you are displaying the worst example of stupidity

  53. Of course Russia can easily destroy the US having all things for that. To prevent this the US Army must at least not provoking the Russia

  54. “Invading Sovereign Nation’s in 2008” that is called ‘ass kicking’ Georgian aggression who shot and killed Russian peace keepers caused Russian military respond. This article is rubbish and dumb propaganda. Next.

  55. So, we should be building up, maybe constantly, our defenses. I never believe anything until I’ve seen proof, but at the same time, we should never slacken on defense build up…should never have slackened. In this way only, would we be ready.

  56. Yeah,, but obama`s gutted our military. Him and soros have. They want the US destroyed. What I don`t get is why our military doesnt jus go ahead and remove obama from power like they should?

  57. This says all you need to know about this article right here:

    “Polina Tikhonova is a writer, journalist and a certified translator. Over the past 7 years, she has worked for a wide variety of top European, American, Russian, and Ukrainian media outlets. Polina holds a Master’s Degree in English Philology from the University of Oxford and a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from the Saint Petersburg State University. Her articles and news reports have been published by many newspapers, magazines, journals, blogs and online media sources across the globe. Polina is fluent in English, German, Ukrainian and Russian.”

    Neo-soviet propaganda.

  58. BE CAREFUL NEVER TO FALL FOR THESE RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA, LIES AND MISINFORMATION.
    They have an entire section of Russian society that operates under the Kremlin directives purposely dedicated to the manufacture and delivery of lies, misinformation, propaganda, innuendos and falsehoods; delivered on strict schedules both to the Russian people and to the world, solely to project their power fantasies, but mainly to demoralize and confuse America, the American people and the rest of the world. IT DOESN’T WORK.
    YES, SOME NATIONS CAN DESTROY THE USA, BUT, WHERE WOULD THEY LIVE AND DO THAT? THEY SURELY WOULD NOT LIVE ON THIS PLANET, EARTH.

  59. The U.S. Army General, Mark Milley stated:

    “The audience then asked whether Russia should be considered an enemy rather than a partner, but Milley responded with an urge to a “strength and balance sort of approach, which is our current policy.”

    “While diplomacy is very “nuanced,” Russia must be fought with sanctions and NATO’s confident stance, he noted. However, the General added that the U.S. must cooperate with Russia on matters that require involvement of both Washington and Moscow.””

    Unless the U.S. or our allies are attacked by Russia, this needs to be and remain “our current policy.”

    The U.S. Army General is smart.

    We DO NOT want a war with Russia, especially since we have been told that our missile tests were a “bluff,” A BLUFF, to trick the American People into believing and thinking that we can counter Russia’s more technologically advanced missiles and nukes.

    WE THE PEOPLE have been lied to yet again by our government, as they have down played how great a threat and danger our enemies really and truly and actually are, making them appear and seem MUCH less of a threat than they really, truly, and actually are.

    NOW, the TRUTH and the FACTS come out, because they CANNOT hide and cover the FACTS and TRUTHS anymore.

    Remember a couple of months ago, some intelligence officers lied in their intelligence reports, down playing how great a threat and danger isis really is, making them appear and seem MUCH less of a threat than they actually, really, and truly are?!

    War with Russia, based on the given FACTS from the U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst, is a BAD idea

    Yes, we have nukes, too, but, according to the 2 AMERICANS, what they said in the article, Russia’s technological advancement with their military, missiles and nukes, are better than ours, we would be more devastated, have more destruction, and more casualties than the U.S. has ever seen or known before.

    I have said many times, “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.”- Yours Truly ;-)

  60. Of course Russia can destroy us now a black man is president. The moment a white racist republican becomes president, we would would be able to destroy Russia. Because in white minds anything associated with black people means inferior.

  61. This so called “author” named Polina always writes the most ridiculous and biased articles. She rarely ever cites any sources. Why do they keep paying her to write such stupid articles? I can tell by her picture that she is hot but christ, her mindset sure is skewed.

  62. This so called “author” named Polina always writes the most ridiculous and biased articles. She rarely ever cites any sources. Why do they keep paying her to write such stupid articles? I can tell by her picture that she is hot but damn, her mindset is skewed.

  63. The U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst said that though we have that power, Russia’s is more powerful and technologically advanced, and, our recent missile tests were ONLY a “bluff” to trick the American People into thinking that we can counter Russia’s missiles and nukes… A BLUFF!!! That’s all, and, that proves and shows that we are NOT ready to fight against a threat and enemy like Russia.

    The American People have been lied to, AGAIN, as our government has once again down played how great a threat and danger our enemies really, truly and actually are, making them appear and seem much less of a threat than they really, truly and actually are.

    I have said many times, “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.” – Your Truly ;-)

  64. That’s NOT the point, boss!!!

    The U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst said that though we have that power, Russia’s is more powerful and technologically advanced, and, our recent missile tests were ONLY a “bluff” to trick the American People into thinking that we can counter Russia’s missiles and nukes… A BLUFF!!!

  65. No No Commie. Capitalism is what made us great, and the best. It breeds innovation and ingenuity. Their is a reason why socialist and communist countries rarely have ground breaking “anything”. The liberal media is the greatest threat to the US.

  66. The U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst said that though we have that power, Russia’s is more powerful and technologically advanced, and, our recent missile tests were ONLY a “bluff” to trick the American People into thinking that we can counter Russia’s missiles and nukes… A BLUFF!!! That’s all, and, that proves and shows that we are NOT ready to fight against a threat and enemy like Russia.

  67. No they cant beat us. If they didnt have nukes, we could steam roll over Putin. They put a lot of their money and effort into nukes. Its the only thing stopping them from being stomped on.

  68. I don’t believe that Russians technology is greater than ours. Nor do I believe they could BEAT US in a war.
    If either of those 2 statements were true Russia would have already attacked us.

  69. Did you read the article?!

    It said that our military missile tests were a “bluff,” to trick the American People into thinking that we can stop the superiority, advancement, and technology of Russia’s military missiles and nukes.

    In other words, our government has once again LIED to the American People, down playing how great a threat and danger Russia really is.

    According to the U.S. Army General, and, the American counter-terrorism analyst, our military technology has been surpassed by Russia’s military technology.

    You have 2 Americans saying that in the above article, a U.S. Army General, and, an American counter-terrorism analyst.

    You didn’t read the article, did you, Paul?

    You should really go back and read, or, if you did read the article, re-read the article.

    The American People have been lied to, AGAIN!!!

    A month or two ago, it was in the news that some of our intelligence officers lied in their intelligence reports, down playing how great a threat isis really is, making them appear and seem much less of a threat than they actually are.

    They’ve done the same thing with Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and others of our enemies, down playing them, making them appear and seem much less of a threat than they really, truly, and actually are.

    This is going to come back to haunt U.S. and bite U.S., eventually.

    I have said for a while, “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.”- Yours Truly ;-)

    Please re-read the article, and understand what the U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst are saying and discussing with our government and military.

    The TRUTH and FACTS have finally come out, because they CANNOT hide and cover it up any more.

    We’ve been lied to for so long, NOT only to prevent a mass panic, but, more especially, so our TRAITORS will remain in the position of authority, keeping their power and control.

    If more and more people continue waking up, there will be an uprising in this Country, and, these criminal TRAITORS, guilty of TREASON, will be removed from their position, by the American People.

    That day is fast approaching. It’s only a matter of “when,” and, “when,” is very, very soon.

    The 5th of November sounds good!!! ;-)

    Wait, that’s tomorrow!!!

    Time to play and oust these TRAITORS and globalists!!!

  70. I have a very critical outlook, Jerry, AND, I stay up on things and research things a lot. I don’t pay much attention to mainstream news media because they’re manipulated and controlled.

    Yeah… RT News.. Russian Times… I read their articles from time to time.

    It’s so hilarious to see how many people want to naively ignore how great a threat Russia really is, simply because they think what’s coming out in the news is mere propaganda, and, because the writer of the article is Russian.

    There is some propaganda and agenda, of course, that being globalism and the further implementation of the new world order by the global elite.

    HOWEVER, let’s look at what’s being said by at least 2 American’s in the above article. A U.S. Army General, and, an American counter-terrorism analyst are saying and discussing how great, “existential,” and “aggressive” that Russia has been and is, and, that their military technology surpasses that of the U.S. Military.

    AGAIN, you have 2 AMERICANS saying this, a U.S. Army General, and, an American counter-terrorism analyst.

    Yet, you and those like you still want to look the other way, burying your coward, sissy heads in the sand, acting and pretending like Russia poses NO threat at all?

    It’s been said that China has more nuclear weapons than the entire world combined. A couple of years ago, American Satellites picked up images of many deep underground tunnels inside China’s mainland, for transporting missiles, and, no doubt, nuclear.

    Russia and China have been and are a greater threat and enemy that what’s been said and believed, and, what’s going on in the world today, with Russia and China, proves that.

    We have been lied to by some in our government, intelligence community, and by some in our military, and, it’s going to come back to haunt U.S.

    Did you read what the U.S. Army General said?!

    EVERYTHING the U.S. Army General said was about how great a threat, how “existential” a threat, and, how “aggressive” a threat that Russia is.

    An “American counter-terrorism Analyst” in the article said this: “Russia is far more advanced and superior in terms of military technologies than the U.S., while the recent American missile tests were nothing but a “bluff” to trick people into thinking the U.S. military could easily counter even such a nuclear-powerful adversary as Russia, according to an American counter-terrorism analyst.”

    The above article is about what a U.S. Army General and an American counter-terrorism analyst is saying. These guys are NOT Russian, nor are they pro-Russia by any means. They are giving the information for how great a threat that Russia really is. That being said, it matters NOT that the writer of the article is Russian. The article quotes what American Military Leadership and counter terrorism analysts are saying and discussing.

    I have said many times, “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.”- Yours Truly ;-)

    Ouch!!!

    If it makes you feel safer and better to bury your sorry, coward heads in the sand, and, look the other direction, pretending and acting and masquerading around like Russia’s not a real serious threat, hey, whatever helps you sleep better at night. That’s very naive, though, and, that kind of mentality will ONLY serve to get you and yours killed.

    Let’s remember how U.S. intelligence reports actually played down how great a threat that the isis cowards and sissies really are, too. They came out in the news about a month or two ago, that U.S. intelligence officers actually lied in their reports, making isis appear or seem to be much less of a threat than they actually are.

    People, these are some of our Military and Intelligence LEADERS, lying to others in our government, and, to the American Populace about the REAL threats, and, how great the threats we face in the world REALLY are. They have been down playing it, and, it’s going to come back to haunt U.S. if we’re NOT careful.

    Is that a “more critical outlook” enough for you?!

    I ALWAYS dig and research to find the real facts and truths. I DO NOT blindly and naively believe and accept everything the government and mainstream news media tells me, like you brainwashed zombies out there that thinks the government would never betray or turn on or against its own people, and, would never lie to us.

    We HAVE been lied to, and, the government HAS turned on the American People and on our Military Veterans.

    There are SO MANY TRAITORS leading our Nation, that cares NOTHING for the U.S., our allies, or Israel.

    These are facts and truths. You can blindly and naively think and believe that I’m crazy, as so many think and say, only to be proven wrong later, which has happened often, and, most of the time, or, you can look into what I’m saying, research, read, DO NOT just watch and listen to and believe everything the government and mainstream news media tells you, and, dig for the REAL facts and truths.

    We’re lied to constantly, making our enemies appear or seem less of a threat and danger than they really are, to avoid mass panic, but, more especially, so our TRAITORS won’t lose their position of authority, power, and control.

    Yeah, any country with nukes are a threat and danger. That’s NOT the point, though.

    The point is, we’ve turned a blind eye to Russia and China, believing naively for so long, since the “cold war,” that they were too weak economically and militarily to ever pose a threat or danger to the world, the U.S., or our allies, that, in recent years, they came out of nowhere with their vast military buildup.

    NOW the world’s paying attention. Just look what’s going on, and, read the above article. It’s more than just about nuclear weapons, it’s about being lied to and deceived by some of our leaders, some intelligence officers and their reports, and, by some in our military.

    The above article was written by a Russian. Yeah, I get and I understand that.

    What people fail to understand, though, is, what a U.S. Army General and American counter-terrorism analyst are saying, and, what others in our government are discussing concerning the REAL threat that Russia really is.

    Re-read the article.

    Look what Russia’s been doing.

    Our government has played down America’s, our allies, and Israel’s threats long enough.

    NOW, the TRUTH and FACTS are coming out, because they obviously can’t hide it any more.

    The TRUTH is out now, and, people like you STILL won’t come to terms and deal with how great a threat Russia really is.

    That mentality, sir, will ONLY serve to get you and yours killed.

    There are TOO many people that are blind, naive, and apathetic.

    “Oh, nothing’s going to happen.” “We’re invincible.” ” No one’s more powerful than U.S.”

    REALLY?!

    Obviously, with what the U.S. Army General and the American counter-terrorism analyst have said, A LOT is about to happen, we’re NOT invincible, and, we’re NOT the most powerful any more, because of this present, current, ignorant, incompetent, pathetic, cowardice, sissy idiotic, so called, supposed leadership and administration, and, their inaction.

  71. All due respect to anyone’s opinion vs facts from wherever they stand or sit but….

    When former General David Petraeus of Builderberger/Amazon/globalist/Scorpio places says that same thing then the US and American people have something to be concerned about.

    Until then? Happy Birthday General Petraeus this 7th. Keep your wife for yourself and you and your ladies are welcome at my birthday party celebration anytime before the current FBI is welcomed.

  72. Here is the greatest threat to the U.S. Our capitalistic system. Our system is one of acquisition. Our government is bought by these capitalists. So they see countries they’d like to exploit and they get our puppet government to help. Iraq has oil let’s go there. Libya has nationalized petroleum lets go in there and privatize it. Let’s get Ukraine and we can have control of all of Europe’s energy being piped from Russia. Our CIA initiates government replacement in Ukraine. So these parasite capitalists continue to attempt to acquire. If someone steps in the way they start propaganda frenzy “educating” the sheep how bad these obstructionists are. These capitalists have insatiable appetite and never stop in their attempts to get more. So ultimately someone finally says this is enough. Putin is this somebody and Putin does not stand alone. If war breaks out you will find out how many friends Putin has and how few true supporters we have. I wouldn’t expect much help from Europe except from Germany. As far as UK goes. They have already told us no on Syria. I believe the UK people have decided to get off the train. We are headed for a confrontation and it will either be us sulking back chastised and humiliated or a major confrontation that could lead to WW3. We need to reign in our government and stop special interests from controlling our destiny.

  73. Go and paint the ceiling in the wooden cabin with a hole above the pit, with a door banging in the wind at the far corner of your garden.

  74. Your statement is Useless, just like NATO is also USELESS. If russia-NATO war starts, Europe will be the first land to turn into radio active dust, then the USA. Russia also have its ICBMs aimed at you from any direction. They are a threat because the US couldn’t find a way to mess with them, they know the consequences.

  75. Dead accurate. They have shown absolutely no aggression toward the US. There is no danger of Russian troops parachuting into Central Park. All they have done is to resist our attempt to push them out of Crimea and refuse to support our attempt to engineer a regime changer in Syria.
    The are no danger to the US, just a danger to our determination to dominate the world.

  76. Look at the source – this Polina gal would be working for the KGB if she was born 20 years earlier… Her “articles” always leave one in awe of the Russian might and courage… Having said that – Russia could nuke us (destroy) and we could nuke them (destroy)… So let’s knock this nonsense out and get back on better terms…

  77. Your first part is true that the two countries can destroy each other. But i disagree with the second part. The US does not have any capability to stop a high volume ICBM. Yes we can intercept a medium to long range missile. But an ICBM like russia’s R-36 M2 is DEFENITLY going to penetrate your airspace.

  78. Dude, NOT paranoid, I gave and shared factual information.

    Do you know how much and how often our enemies and threats have been down played by some in our government, intelligence community, and by some in our Military, making our enemies and threats and their capabilities appear and seem much less of a threat and danger than they actually are?!

    NOT very many understand and know this. The American Populace is being lied to, because if the majority of WE the PEOPLE knew how great a threat and danger our enemies really were and are, and, found out how horrible a job our so called, supposed leadership and administration have been doing, there’d be an uprising in this Country, and, these traitors in power would be ousted for their TREASON, betrayal, and corruption.

    Is it “paranoia” to share and give factual information, especially when it’s been said and proven that the American People, and, many in our government and military have been lied to by some intelligence officers, down playing how great a threat that isis really is?

    Did you read what the U.S. Army General said?!

    EVERYTHING the U.S. Army General said was about how great a threat, how “existential” a threat, and, how “aggressive” a threat that Russia is.

    An “American counter-terrorism Analyst” in the article said this: “Russia is far more advanced and superior in terms of military technologies than the U.S., while the recent American missile tests were nothing but a “bluff” to trick people into thinking the U.S. military could easily counter even such a nuclear-powerful adversary as Russia, according to an American counter-terrorism analyst.”

  79. There’s a term in contemporary Russian slang: “Kremlyad”. It’s made up of “Kreml” (Kremlin) and “blyad” (whore). It’s usually used to describe bloggers and “journalists” who spread this kind of material.

  80. WOW did he just wake up of something of course Russia can destroy us but we can also destroy them as well and I hope no one wants to pull that trigger but we need to be prepared if they try, that is why we have SDI & Missile defenses able to stop ICBMs and a threat of a full nuclear strike as well

  81. Yes, Russia can destroy US (and vice versa) and Russia has some missile technologies superior to US. But the moment she implied that US missile hit that Russian plane in Egypt, all of her Kremlin-paid blog went down the toilet.

  82. Give the man a Cookie !!! Give him a raise. Also, let him know not to worry cause the U.S. has the Nuclear capability to destroy Nations also. Just don’t give him bubble gum or he won’t be able to walk.

  83. Only Stupid people credit this and overlook the fact that the U.S. has the same power to destroy nations with Nuclear war.

  84. Check your math on launch range from the Caspian Sea to Syria, then check your math on sortie ratios for the Russians in Latakia, and the rest of your post is unquantifiable nonsense.

  85. He’s a genius, Who woulda thought that a bunch of Nuclear Warheads could destroy a country. #MINDBLOWN . Did he bother to mention the U.S. also has that power ???? HMMMM.

  86. Clearly, this article was written by a member of Putin’s propaganda machine… Look at the name and the gross distortion of facts and the calculated, OBVIOUS omissions.

  87. Did you read what the U.S. Army General said?!

  90. Meanwhile we have an idiot making decisions for us and an Admin
    that would sell their own soles to please the community organizer. We used to be a proud Country, but now the illegals, race-baiters and Rodents making the Police the bad guys. I think it’s about 398 days till Bozo’s out of the whitehouse (sorry, if that offends the diseased Liberals saying whitehouse).

  91. The number one threat to the U.S. and Israel is globalism and the new world order.

    mr. obola is a muslim and a communist, and, so anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Israel. he’s a controlled puppet, being used by the global elite to destroy the U.S. faster, our Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and, our way of life, faster and worse than any other President in U.S. History.

    It’s orchestrated, by design, happening on purpose for the agenda and propaganda of the new world order.

    NOT only is obola the number 1 threat to America, he’s the number 1 threat to humanity and the world, as he continues to cater to, defend, befriend, and protect and negotiate with muslims, terrorists, and their terrorist states.

    Let’s remember, it’s because mr. obola negotiated with terrorists, releasing 5 of al qaeda’s top commanders for one U.S. Army Soldier that deserted and abandoned his post, going awol, betraying his Oath, Country, the U.S. Army, the American People, and, America, that we have the isis problem in Syria and Iraq.

    obola is NOT for America or Israel. he hates both, and, he is only furthering his daddy’s plan and vision, and, what obola’s mentors had planned and wanted for the U.S., turning it into a muslim, communist, third world Country, with sharia law.

    That’s what’s happening to the U.S. under the current, present, pathetic, ignorant, incompetent, coward, so called, supposed administration and leadership.

    There are SO many TRAITORS.

  92. Mrs. Polina Tikhonova,
    I have great respect for your work as a writer, journalist and a certified translator, but, this piece about “Russia’s military far more advanced than that of U.S. – American analyst” is “Horse Shi*t”.

  93. “Russia Can Destroy Us” … Ok! What about the US? Don’t we have teeth to bite back? Oh please!
    Do you already forget about Isoroku Yamamoto’s sleeping giant quote? “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” Good luck Russia… Good luck humanity! Just saying!

  94. Comrade Lynch! If you are not in Russia, please do the rest of the world a favour and go to Russia.
    If you are in Russia, please stay there for the rest of your unshaved and ragamuffin life.

  95. Don’t believe everything you read. They say they can engage a huge number of targets per SAM, but they have never been put to the test. The one good thing about being involved in everyone’s conflict is, your forces and tools are always battle proven. The Russians can’t say that.

  96. No it’s racism. How comes when Bush was president you didn’t sing the same tune…despite all the people he murdered in Iraq? Ahhhh

  97. hahaha. ot one would touch them. Their defense system is so advance that by the time we launch a missile , they would have already shot it down.

  98. Russia is both!! that’s the real danger. So we stay put and don’t mess with them. Let’s go mess with countries like Iraq and Panama.

  99. Simple C ! Strategy Suceess @ Mutual Destruction Systems
    ( For Ex : USA & Russia )

    If they both want mutual destruction systems, both should & must destroy each other as per the International Geneva Laws of Convention & War laws, why to have a nuclear wars & nuclear Armageddon , when both of them never ever created global life systems ( 1. Earth 2. Sky 3. Nature 4. Environment 5. Atmosphere 6. Stars 7 . Cloud 8 . Space 9. Water 10. Oil ) ?

    Simple objectivity there are other species like simple baby birds , squirrels rabbits & humans live because of the global life systems @ Daily life business needs.

  100. “The analyst also suspects that there might be a connection between the U.S. missile tests and the recent Russian plane crash over Egypt’s Sinai desert which killed 224 passengers on board, including 25 children and 7 crew members.”

  101. It’s never “too late” to toss scum out of your government. It’s just a matter of how much BS the public is willing to put up with. Now that we have the specter of ‘World War III’ looming over us, who in his/her right mind wants that?

  102. That “Russian troll” knows more about what’s going on than that fevered mind of yours will ever know in that miserable life you lead. I suggest you not comment any further on things your so obviously know nothing about. That is, unless you want to look more stupid than you do now.

  103. Wow…just figured that out…after all the years of training…schooling and everything else …he is telling what we knew back in the 60’s that it is mutual destuction…..why are we and you even writing about this….if true that he just figured this out needs to be retired and returned to civilian life…..very stupid and not worth being in the position he is

  104. There ought to be law that prohibits war. There ought to be a law that bans drivers who drive faster than 50 mph. Allah Allah. Pakistan Pakistan. Great Great.

  105. I find it interesting that the author of this article refers to General Mark Milley being the Army Chief of Staff which is a 4 Star position yet uses a picture of that same man back when he was a Brigadier General. And it is not surprise that Russia would blame everything on the US should Syria go south, typical Russian politics at work. That is precisely why the Kursk incident happened like it did, as the Russian government was too busy being arrogant and continuing their spat with the West to even remotely accept help until it was too late; I guess saving face is a far more inviting prospect than the lives of it’s sailors. And here’s a newsflash to the editor, yes Russia is a threat to the US, as much as the US is a threat to Russia; and let’s not forget MAD, we have enough nuclear missiles to destroy Russia as well make no mistake about that very important point!

  106. Yes, there would be retaliation, but as far as threat goes, I think you meant Russia is not a threat because it knows the consequences. But Russia in simple terms is a threat since it could destroy the USA and other countries, but at the same time Russia would be destroyed. You also have to throw China in the Mix, which side would it take Russia or the USA and it’s Nato allies ? Would CHina Help defend Russia ? You also have Iran and North Korea and then ofcourse India, Yes the USA has more allies. But this would be then end of the world. basically if we had a Nuclear war.
    This is what’s called the Balance of power in nuclear and other military capabilities.
    So your right Russia is not a threat to the USA , but the USA is not a threat to Russia either..

  107. Yeah. And we can destroy them. Soooo, what’s the end result again? I love it when generals try to drum up the war drum so we the public can get all riled up and needlessly increase taxes so defense spending can go up. Then the general retires and works for the very same company that got contracts to build whatever disposable equipment we’d be using in that big ol’ war with Russia…that never actually happens.

  108. More communist propaganda. This is an article written originally by a Russian to spread it’s false news. Russian military equipment are from the cold wars, they break down, they are unreliable. Their troops are mostly transcript that have no advance training to deal with actual combat.

    For you people who lives in American and bash the US government, please go live in Russia for a few months to see how much freedom you have and how much control of your life you will have. Bunch of fucking idiots
    .

  109. The problem is that Russia will not attack the USA and that USA will never attack a country able to fight back.In addition remain a fact that the USA is a maritime power and Russia a land power.

  110. Russia is no threat to the U.S. They are surrounded my NATO forces and nuclear missiles aimed at them from every direction. What are they going to do .. start launching .. and then expect no retaliation ?.

  111. Why does this Surprise you? The Russian Federation been a Superpower since before the 80s Cold War, this article should be no surprise, If your paying attention they passed America in Nukes last year.

  112. This is not New News, The Russian Federation been a Superpower since before the 80s Cold War, this article should be no surprise

  113. well ..the u.s has also invaded sovereign countries that were too weak to resist the invasions (iraq,afgh,lbya etc)..so what is this general bickering about

  114. The number one threat for US is its system of electing morons to run it.
    Smart people by default cannot be elected. Any skillful crook good in talking can fool millions.
    Is Hilary one of the best and the brightest, how about all the others running for president?
    To be a leader of a country requires as much knowledge, skills and talent as for every other thing in life.
    Do we elect the world champion on chess? How about the Nobel Prize? Smart people should be electing the president, not fools and lobbies of special interests.

  115. Russia’s Cruise missals are only accurate to about 500 miles and they only have one aircraft carrier and their nuclear missiles are from the cold war. They can’t keep their jets in Syria flying half the time!!! Their new tank fell apart in a parade and if you have noticed they have not deployed any of them to Syria!!! Their soldiers are mostly 1 year conscripts who don’t care to fight. They are scared shitless of the U S military but believe Obama is a Paper Tiger

  116. Russian women suck to American men because they win them over by their sexy ways and overt attention. They know you guys are soft and easily played. They are extremely good at faking love and devotion

  117. Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley=McCain. They see dangers in every country unwilling to become vassal to Washington.

  118. goes to show the truth about our pentagon and congress we out spend russia 3 to one for defense spending but yet they are a head of us . so it shows that defense spending is corrupted we over pay 1000% for everything purchase for defense. it is the cash cow for them and the good ole boy kick back system is so in play here that it is sickening . that is why they keep raising defense spending they do have to actual spend billions on defense but i would really like to see all of the big brass off-shore account’a and especially congress they have it coming in from everywhere.

  119. Hahaha..Talk about a Russian blonde airhead writer. The Russian Military is more advanced? Hahaha…for real, i cant stop laughing.

  120. I don’t think that way. Rephrase that to “only tea party rednecks living in trailers with confederate flags” thinks everyone wants to be like Americans. It’s becoming tougher and tougher to get by and it’s by design. Our wealthy are running this country and we are becoming slaves to corporations.
    I personally wouldn’t mind becoming an ex pat upon retirement. I’m done with all of the hatred, ignorance and obesity I see on a daily basis.

  121. Life has been too easy? Not for most of us it hasn’t. You need to stop watching Baywatch as your point of reference for Americans. We’re not that soft.

  122. Russia is a peaceful country? That’s a new one. Don’t know many Americans clamoring to buy up real estate in that hell hole but the Russians certainly are doing that in America. Russia is not a safe country and not one that I’d ever want to visit even though my mother is Russian.

  123. Of course NATO can destroy Russia. What has been going down since nukes were ? The power of destruction is clearly the motive and the countries with it, have the momentum to go and use it. Russia is not the only possibility here. We have been a great nation for the fact of ability. The bear makes target in itself. NATO has overcome adversary with lesser visability. Vietnam. Bin Laddin. Now, terrorism. There is good reason NATO is with fourty years supiriority.

  124. I have to say – US generals need to shut the fvk up… Really. Russia is a threat after the US destroyed the livelihood of millions of pppl over the last two decades? Are you fvking azzwipes on crack?

  125. Every Dam body is a threat to the U.S to hear the D.O.D. tell it, when in true reality we are the biggest threat of all to our self’s and other Nations. All Nations of the World now agree the United States is now the biggest threat to “WORLD PEACE”.

  126. Quote:

    Russia has been violating “the Westphalian order” ever since it started invading “sovereign nations” in 2008.

  127. According to a Ukrainian general 3/4ths of the Russian military are ill-trained, one year conscripts and a bunch of drunks. In other words cannon fodder.

  128. LOL. You think that up yourself? Like they can overcome huge numerical and technological advantages because of a nebulous statement.

  129. According to a Ukrainian general 3/4ths of Russian troops are 1-year conscripts that get virtually no training and are a bunch of drunks. These are the men we’d fight in a war and they are nothing more than cannon fodder.

  130. You are right in everything you say except about their new main battle tank, the T-14. It would take a direct hit with a 155mm shell to knock one out. The trouble is they had to cancel 80-90% of their planned purchases due to budget constraints. Same thing with their 5th gen. fighter.

  131. What the American people want is what the European people want and what the people in the Middle east want and most likely North Africa too- for America to solve its own problems right here at home. To enforce the laws on the books, to enforce logical and justified immigration and to provide food, clothing, education and shelter and a reasonable tax system for all its people. Cut the paperwork, cut the diversions cut the lobbyists out and ensure the elected reps vote in accordance with the promises they made directly to their local and State inhabitants. Just work on the “Star Wars Defense” not on an offensive NATO plan of confrontation. It would appear to the logical mind that the greatest threat comes from terrorists hear and abroad. Quit the economic warfare against over 60 countries and work on rebuilding: roads, bridges, schools, shelters, agricultural land and public parks etc etc etc.

  132. God is Bennett delusional. The U.S. would annihilate Russia in a war and to suggest that Obama would put troops in harms way as an excuse to widen a conflict is beyond the pale as Obama is doing everything he can to avoid having American troops on the ground in any hostile environ. One of Russia’s generals was asked about the possibility of them invading Estonia and he responded: “do you think we are crazy?” This in reference to the idea of fighting NATO which is basically the U.S. They use Soviet era designs and manufacturing for many of their war ships and have cancelled plans for purchase of 90% of their awesome top tanks and top fighter plane. We might lose a battle or two but it wouldn’t even be much of a war and the entire world acknowledges that.

  133. What happen to all the money the defense department got ,when Russia was in the dumps .Waste by the defense department is our biggest threat. What a bunch of B S.

  134. I would have added that Russia has over 8500 nuclear warheads, and if they simply detonated around 3000 of them in Siberia without even launching them they could cause global nuclear winter and lethal radioactive fallout for every nation on Earth, pretty much ending the human race. The US & Russia are BOTH capable of ending all human life on our planet. WWIII wouldn’t be about tanks, soldiers and airplanes either. Both sides have ballistic submarines capable of launching anywhere from 200-288 nuclear warheads at their targets from a distance of over 6000 miles away. NATO ticking off Russia over former Soviet states is not something we – as a species – need right now. What we need is the amity and cooperation that exists on the International Space Station.

  135. It will be mutual destruction, this general wants more money for defense, since 70 years ago we have use Russia as a tool to get more money and money…now the budget is 661 Billion and they want more…Incredible..So we better stop playing games with Russia….

  136. LOL, The Writer of this Article is a Free Lance Writer making $10.00 per hour! I would hardly think anyone would take Her opinion serious!! She is a Russian Sympathizer!

  137. But History has Shown, “Never Wake a Sleeping Giant !” Just about Every Citizen in the United States is Armed, some have more Weapons than most Russian Companies! Art is War is making People think they have the upper hand, when they have no hand at all!. We call that “Suckers”! We don’t belittle Russian People, We Belittle the Little Arrogant Ass You call Putin! We got School Kids in Chicago that would Kick His ass all day long!! LOL

  138. You are a traitor to the United States, even if this were true and that the Russians know it, why in he** would you announce it to the world. I will never understand the idiots who proclaim our countries weaknesses in the public forum. What you are not saying and even more important is that the fact that if there were a nuclear war no matter who starts it both countries and many more would be completely destroyed, if not totally then back to the dark ages. I have sympathy for dumb people who say dumb things, but there is no excuse for a supposedly intelligent person to be so ignorant. Stupid is as stupid does.

  139. Russia is literally 30 years behind the United States in regards to technology. Here’s an example. Russia still flies the Bear bomber (propeller plane), the United States flies the B-2 Bomber. Big difference. That technological gap is across all areas of the military. Don’t get me wrong, Russia has a strong military but they are in no way even or superior to the United States. They are literally 30 years behind. If you truly think they are, you’re just lying to yourself.

  140. I think you’re giving the Russians and Chinese a little more credit than they’re actually due. One valid reason I can think of as why we didn’t know certain “capabilities” is it’s not so much that we didn’t know they didn’t have them, it’s more the fact that we’ve been at war against certain people for the last 14 years, and it’s hardly worth it to spend resources on an enemy that you aren’t even fighting, nor is there ample evidence that fighting between you and said enemy will even happen in the near future. And the idea that Russia/China has tools like this doesn’t mean anything. They are on par with what we created over a decade ago. The good thing about being at war as long as we have is that it has jump-started defense projects, so counter-measures to those weapons are quite probably already being fielded if not in the last stages of testing. Contrary to what people like you think, MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) is still a thing, and all the super powers of the world know about it, whether they have nukes, cruise missiles, or are experts in rock chunkin’. Also, final note, we like to brag because we know how great the mere presence of the US has made on the world in the grand scheme of history. Humanity is at a high point because the US has carried it on it’s back, while rucking up a mountain covered in blood and mud.


  141. Russia’s military far more advanced than that of U.S. – American analyst” Really?? The Russian military is in no way superior to that of the United states. Sure, they have nuclear weapons that could destroy the United States but that’s all they have. In a conventional war, the United States would flatten Russia. Russia has no means to project power past it’s borders. (Sending a few planes to Syria is not projecting power). They have 1 aircraft carrier that requires tugboats to accompany it because it breaks down so often. The rest of their Navy is in shambles as they no longer have the means, know how, or technology to build ships.(This was all lost after the collapse of the USSR). Their Airforce is literally falling out of the sky and they’re still using propeller planes as bombers, their tanks are old and inferior. Sure, they built some nice prototypes but have no money to field them. Their is nothing Russia has that is superior or even on par with the United States. You can’t even claim that their nukes are superior because the US has just as many. So, to the analyst that wrote this. You’re highly misinformed.

  142. David, even if blacks or gay makes up mass military in the US, whats the problem with that? Does it mean that gays or black cannot fight? This guy is just trying to provoke you. The bottomline is that Polina is a mouth piece of Russia, with a mission to show how weak the USA is.

  143. Hey bud,

    Do you know what the privately owned and foreign controlled central banks are all
    about in the EU and the U.S.? How would you like to?

    I’ll give you a hint they print money out of thin air and lend it to those governments,
    as well as other folks at interest. In any other line of work that would be
    considered counterfeiting!! How would you like to print money up on a monthly
    basis to pay off your credit card statement? That my friends is the best
    analogy I can think of!!
    Wake up, that’s why the BRICs arrangement has arisen, and that’s why Russia has a bulls-eye on its butt….it has nothing to do with kraine, or any leader being a thug or about democracy, which the U.S. doesn’t ven have anymore…… Russians have been in Crimea and the east continuously for ell over 300 years, since they beat the Ottoman Turks!!! The folks that onduct international business and trade want a stable currency that maintains
    its value as the international standard…which the petro dollar isn’t anymore, s it is depreciating as we speak!! It’s all about having a stable monetary rrangement out there. The Federal government/Treasury needs to flat-out ationalize the Federal Reserve Banks and issue currency itself with oversight rom Congress. To allow the privately owned and foreign controlled Federal eserve Banks to continue to operate for profit and without any Federal
    oversight/audits is flat-out suicidal and the system will end up collapsing in he near future, as this type of financial system creates more and more ccumulated interest to the point where there is so much more interest and debt n circulation than money with which to pay off that debt/interest and any rofits/money made by the general public has to be used to pay off the debt/interest, nstead of reinvesting to create new technologies, jobs, etc.

  144. What war has Russia ever fought? They left Afghanistan beaten….or now they are in Syria, they think they are battle hardened? There is nothing Russia would do even if America was to send more ground forces in Syria. And what would Cuba do or even Iran or China?

  145. Which war has the Chinese fought? or which major war has the Russians fought of recent? Going to war in Syria is nothing compared to what the USA did in Iraq and Afghanistan. People forget so soon. Its the same Afghanistan that the former USSR left ashamed by the ragtag army. As you praise Russia and China as capable in destroying the US, rest assured that they will be destroyed before they know it. Its not like Americans are sleeping, waiting for China or Russia to attack them.

  146. So, Polina Tikhonova believes that Russia can destroy America!!! They will be destroyed before they even know it. Russia know it and has to spice it up with propaganda to make its people believe they have that capability.

  147. Russia now has nuclear superiority- which means that in an exchange, we will be slightly more annihilated than they will be. Kind of like an optimism wherein you see the glass as 2% full- but the rest of the world sees it as 98% empty.

  148. Wow- interesting take. Putin does seem to be, by far, the more able leader and seems to gain more respect on the world stage. MAD assumes both sides will stand down….and there is no elation at knowing that as your nation lies in smoldering ruins, the other nation is as well. That does our kids no good.
    And who then, fills the vacuum?

  149. I post this in response to those who like to belittle Russia. Keep on believing they are weak and you will be the most surprised person when one day you wake up and there is no electricity because of a Russian Nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack. Do you even know what that is? Russians and the Chinese are good students of the Art of War. Deception is their main tactic. The Americans like to brag and strut around showing off their muscles, but the Russians and Chinese patiently wait for the right moment of weakness and then it is lights out for their opponent. Very foolish to underestimate your opponent in sports or war. A recent example is the Russian cruise missile launch which no one knew they had. Even the vaunted US intelligence community didn’t know. So much for their intelligence. What other surprises do they have in store? Unfortunately, for those foolish overly confident dumbed down individuals it will be too late to counter.

  150. “aggressive” and “adversarial to the interests of the United States,” Translation ! They won’t let us be the bully in the neighborhood.

  151. As far as I know, we do not want to be a single global financial center to rub the world. And “collective farm ideology” have its points for good living, as well as for being the strongest military power. And for maintaining peace. Russia is a good guy. America is a bad guy, and there is a reason for it. It rubs the world, it destabilises the world, it wants to control the world. All because of money. Money is your god. That is not right…

  152. Let’s put Russia into the correct prospective- once and for all. Know this for sure, Russia’s strength is its weakness. Understand what this means, then you will know how to deal with them accordingly.

  153. I have read several of Polina’s articles recently. She is a little war-monger, with the tone of her articles designed to make it look like we are on the verge of war. Actually, i think both the US and Russia are pretty responsible with their weapons, which is why we made it through 40 years of cold war without a war.

  154. ”FOR EVERY GIANT, THE SEED TO ITS OWN DESTRUCTION LIES WITHIN IT”
    STATISTICALLY, THE US HAS SPENT MORE MONEY ON R&D WITHIN THE AIM OF MAINTAINING AN EDGE.
    BUT DUE TO AMERICA’S IMPERFECTIONS AND INTRINSIC CHARACTERISTICS, MOST OF THE BREAKTHROUGHS FROM THE R&D EFFORTS HAS INSTEAD, PROVIDED A FERTILE PLATFORM FOR AMERICA’S ADVERSARIES TO JUMP-START THEIR SUPERIORITY AMBITIONS.
    MOST OF AMERICA’S TECHNOLOGIES APPEARS TO BE BETTER HARVESTED BY HER SO CALLED ADVERSARIES.
    SHOULD WE SAY, ONE PARTY IS GOOD AT RESEARCH, AND THE OTHER PARTY IS GOOD AT KEEPING A TAB AND MAKING USE OF THE RESEARCH FINDINGS. AMERICA’ HOLLYWOOD APROACH TO SECRETIVE MILLITARY MATTERS, I SHOULD SAY, IS RATHER PAYING THEM UNINTENDED DIVIDENDS.
    SAY, ” THE USA WILL PIVOT TO ASIA”, AND DO YOU EXPECT OTHERS WITH CONFLICTING INTEREST TO WATCH YOU DO SO EFFORTLESSLY? AND DO YOU NOT EXPECT THEM TO ALSO FOCUS ON AREAS OF POTENTIAL VACUM THAT THE PIVOT WILL CREATE?
    THIS IS JUST A DISTANT EXAMPLE FROM MY EARLIER DEPOSITION.
    TODAY, ON THE INTERNATIONAL ARENA, THE GIANT IS BURNING REACTIVE POWER ON MULTIPLE FRONTS AS IF THEY HAVE NO INTENTION OF WINNING AND DEMOB FROM THOSE FRONTS SOONER, AND CONCENTRATE THEIR STRENGTH. THE GIANT’S ASSETS ARE STRETCHED THIN ON ALL FRONTS, ACHEIVING NOTHING, BUT CREATING A DANGEROUS SITUATION THAT PUTS THE GIANT IN A VULNERABLE POSITION.
    I DEPART WITH THIS FEW WORDS ” UNKNOWN TO SOME AMERICANS, THE USA DERIVES ITS ULTIMATE STRENGTH, NOT JUST FROM ITSELF, BUT FROM ITS ABILITY TO POSITIVELY INFLUENCE A VAST ARRAY OF ALLIES TO FORM COALITIONS, SHARED EFFORT, AND LEADERSHIP ON MATTERS OF COMMON INTEREST IN THE GLOBAL ARENA, AND THAT QUALITY IS SIGNIFICANTLY ERODED AS WE SPEAK” .
    TO DRAW THE CURTAIN, ”WHILE THE CHINESE POPULATION ENJOY RELATIVELY FERTILE ENABLERS ACCROSS A WIDE SPECTRUM OF HER POPULATION, TO DO RESEARCH, PRODUCE, AND SEEK NEW APPLICATIONS OF CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGIES, COMPUTER SYSTEMS, SMART DEVICES, DRONES, ETC, A SLITELY OPPOSITE IS TRUE FOR THE US. A GREATER POPULATION OF THE US DO NOT HAVE THE ENABLERS AND THEREFORE NOT MATCHING UP WITH THEIR CHINESE COUNTERPART IN INNOVATIVE HITECH”’. HERE, ANOTHER DISTANT EXAMPLE.

    ALL THAT SAID, THERE IS AN AMPLE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE WEST TO WORK WITH RUSSIA ON A MUTUAL RESPECT PLATFORM, PROGRESSIVELY AND NOT AS ENEMIES. WHILE THEIR SOCIO-ECONO-POLITICAL SYSTEMS MAY DIFFER, IT DOES NOT DIVORCE THE VERY GREAT POTENTIAL THAT EXISTS FOR CO-OPERATION AND MUTUAL BENEFIT ACCROSS THE BOARD.

    OKW

  155. Who makes up the majority of our military? Who leads it? Anyway, I say we lobby Congress to fight Russia, be the best thing for the left in this country.

    BTW, you ever serve in our military?

  156. Because America established itself as a financial center of the world after WW2 – now all countries use dollars for international trade. If anybody tries to change it it would mean destruction of the US and the whole financial system. It is the main issue explaining everything. All other currences are just derivatives from US dollar. Thats just how it works. If Russia prints rubles in will mean inflation, as well if the EU prints euros. Only America can print dollars and get away with it – because inflation from it is distributed among all countries (they hold their reserves in dollars). That is how America rubs the world. That is why America wants to control the world.

  157. So do you think the blacks, females and gays that make up the mass in the modern Army are a match for the all male battled hardened Russian infantry, artillery and armor?
    I’d like to see the Jessica Lunch, Gen. Karpenski, Jill Metzgers, Karen Hulthgreen,Lydie England brigades vs. those Russians.

    Fighting white men from Europe isn’t a cake walk and technology is an edge, but that dulls over time quickly.

    When casualties pile up 5,000 a week and not a day, how will the soccer moms react? At some point the supply of ghetto superstars and hood rats from the hooch mommas are exhausted. You then have to draft the little messiahs and princesses from the suburbs. Wait until these little American idols come home in boxes.

    Russia might not win a protracted war with us, but I bet they could go ten years and they’f take their licks better.

    I think it’s worth trying, lets pray our idiot leadership sends ground troops into Syria and Ukraine to push Putin out. I think I could vote for that.Just remember, Iran, Cuba and China won’t sit this out either.

  158. “Command respect”.
    The very language of Americans itself subliminally betrays a huge folly of the mind. Respect is to be earned, not commanded or, worse, demanded, as Americans are so wont to expect. Chamge your mindset (and your language) and you might just make some progress with the rest of the world.

  159. Because they realise America’s isn’t the kind of life that works in Russia. Same for the rest of the world. Only the yanks are stupid enough to think the rest of the world wants to be like them.

  160. I have to laugh at the author of this article. Russia is so far behind the U S in military power and technology it is not even worth commenting on

  161. Whatever. America has neither the nerves nor balls for a war with Russia. Cause life has been too easy. Deal with it.

  162. Denial.
    Putin has shoved the finger up Washington’s face time and time again in the ME. Has America pulled the trigger for war? No? I didn’t they had the balls to do so. LOL

  163. Ever hear of the “Samson Option” ??? Israel has 400 Nukes aimed at Russia, Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Poland, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Lithuania, Hungary, Czechia, Slovakia, Argentina, Japan, and Venezuela.

  164. They are using it to build futuristic weapon systems that you will only see when a war with a world power starts. Just remember how long they had their stealth fighters and bombers before Russia or China ever knew that they existed. The U.S. is completely committed to staying ahead in the arms race, but most of it’s technological advancements are on ice, just waiting for the right time when they are needed. The true Americans have no quarrel with paying the bill to help keep us safe, and I for one have no problem with them using whatever money that they need to advance the military in anyway possible.

  165. @Blaz Kec, if Russia disbanded, sought a peaceful behavior and disarmament, then why or how did they produce such weapons as precise ballistic missiles, smart bombs, the worlds greatest tank and has a GEN 5 fighter jet program, along with a top notch submarine fleet. They were just recently teaming with India to further develop an even better fighter jet. They just invaded two countries that couldn’t match their sophistication in weapons, and basically two defenseless countries that weren’t threatening anyone. ( Crimea, Ukraine ) That’s aggressive behavior if there was ever an example of it.

  166. Apoc
    So you’re American? Point me where I can find jobs for media trolling! Lmao! Massive margin my butt, you don’t know what you’re talking about! “American” my butt! lol

  167. Bojan Simonovic
    I know where you are… At St. Petersburg Cyber Trolling Center. lol

    I wish I can get paid like you are, but there is no Cyber trolling Center anywhere I can find. Imagine you seat all day doing nothing except post comments, fill a 100 quota post everyday $700.00 a month? Not a big amount but why not! I could do this during my break! lol

  168. They do so because they want to have people in place to help foreigners like yourself to speak proper English, and not to deface our language with such a poor attempt at it. Does that answer your question ??? https: // www. youtube .com/watch?v=54MVGGC0mJ0

  169. He is bad at spelling skills in his native Russian. So that there is no point for him to be good at spelling in foreign English.

  170. Those American morons will not get there dirty mouth closed till they are nuked by Russian powerful military. Do you ever think we are still in 18 century? you better acknowledge that Russia is the world most powerful military force today… make no mistake or you will be sorry for your self. The earlier you stop thinking you are better than anyone else in everything the better for you guys… The world order has changed seems not to look like before you better deal with is or might perish

  171. It became rich by robbing the world by printing dollars.
    Obviously, only nuclear attack can help against your Collective farm disease .

  172. This impostor isn’t to be taking serious, he’s just sitting behind his desk publishing exactly what he’s being told to do by his supervisors, the KGB. It’s either do that, starve or get put on the front line facing ISIS.

  173. I guess you must be from Russia then, because we don’t watch Russian channels here in the U.S., unless you have a secret antenna that you had sent over with you. But then you would need to be in Sara Palin’s backyard where you can see Russia from, as she so boldly stated.

  174. Another Russian troll, they are getting better at projecting themselves as being from the U.S., but they haven’t honed their skills in spelling at this time, nor the use of a PC and it’s spell checker. Russia has a little more training to do, I see.

  175. Then why Russia does not print rubles to “become rich” as well? Has Russia run out of paper to print rubles on? Or PUTN does not want Russia to be rich?

  176. This is just a Russian paid troll article. There is no way that Russia is anywhere close to the technology that the U.S. and it’s allies possess. Also the economy of Russia won’t allow them to engage this help to Syria over an extended period of time. Their economy is energy driven and oil is at it’s lowest price in decades. Russia must sell oil, it’s main resource to maintain it’s wealth and to contribute back into it’s war coffers. The U.S. military isn’t afraid of engaging Russia if it gets to far out of line, and the biggest problem the U.S. is facing isn’t ISIS, Russia nor Syria, it’s biggest problem is Obama. He has twisted thing up so bad within the U.S. and it’s allied powers that only Obama leaving office will cure the global problem that we face.

  177. Sounds like the Military Industrial Complex is lusting for more taxpayer dollars. As if they aren’t bilking us enough already.

  178. The Germans shuttled Lenin through hostile territory so he could lead the Russian Revolution and the U S and Europe aided him and all this has backfired and we have an enemy now bent on destruction of us; with the Russians in Syria, the Iranians an arch enemy of us, the Chinese conducting viscious cyber attacks against us, it’s all coming down to -when do we start the final war!

  179. he’s bitten off more than he can chew…like the Soviets in Afghanistan…this will stir up the Muslims near Chechnyia, who will begin terrorist acts throughout Russia.

  180. this Bennett analyst is detrimental to the usa interests and might bait Russia into more aggressive action. He should be muzzled one way of the other.

  181. For a non English speaker Mr. Bojan writes English well , lets see you type in Russian asshole . Think before you call someone a pig.

  182. I would disagree if you are suggesting that American media isn’t the most dishonest and propagandist of any country on the planet… probably any country in the history of the planet! Anybody who puts 2 cents worth of stock into a story produced by U.S. mainstream media sources is mentally deficient. The only value that can be gained from following the U.S. media is that it tells us (by and large) what NOT to believe!

  183. I suggest you do more research into the matter. The US and Europe funded the Bolsheviks in 1917 who took over and created the USSR. It became a problem the US created ( Just like ISIS ) that got out of control ( Just like ISIS , Al QUIEDA , Al Nursa whatever you prefer calling them)

  184. Wow that is some heavy Russian propaganda right there , then you read the writers name who wrote it and you understand why it leans so far toward Russia. If anyone thinks , I mean really thinks that Russia , a country that just 25 years ago was on it knees , outspent by the US , a country that neglected its military and military advancements for 10-15 years and was begged for Western money to maintain nuclear arsenals, if anyone thinks that country ( Russia ) has a more advanced military than the Americans is absolutely insane. Flatout totally insane. The US has techonology’s that are state secrets the public doesn’t even know about it , everyone knows the Americans have the best military in the world flat out. Even Russians know this , and can tell this is just propaganda. Its propaganda that is leading the US n Russia toward War and is totally uncalled for .

  185. Based on what? China is one of the least aggressive nations on the planet over the past 60 years, especially among super powers. America is the country that interferes in everyone else’s affairs and antagonizes wars whenever possible.

    There is only one country on the planet that is overtly interested in a nuclear conflict, and that is the U.S.A.

  186. Putin is not scared a bit to dust the US in under 10 min. hell one EMP would knock out 90% of the US grid knocking them back to the 1700’s while they kill themselves.

  187. Well said! This article is as propagandist as they come! Scary as hell that there are weak-minded idiots who actually can’t see through it…

  188. Wasting it on R&D for China, and Russia to hack, and counter, and refine. Remember Russia won WW2, and Russian weapon’s beat down the US by poor Vietnamese, and more recent the terrorist that the US created by staging controlled demolition’s in NY to bomb broke woman, and children in flip flop’s with billion dollar machines for oil, and poppy field’s. Russia spend’s where it count’s in the best rocketry, biggest fastest nukes, stealthiest ” black hole ” sub’s, and the S-500 that nothing in a hundred year’s can get pass. All that fancy electronic BS the US relies on will be it’s downfall as Russia can take out 90% of the grid with one EMP, and specialize in electronic jamming, and sat killing. Not to mention they are backed by the BRIK’S, that own the US debt, and can collapse the dollar overnight. The US and it’s 3 system missile defense test was a joke pitting it against a medium range North Korea style ICBM, not a mach 24 Russian nuke with evasive rocketry, and thousand’s of dummy round’s saturating a jammed radar.

  189. I’m an American, but I am clear-thinking enough to know that no country on earth employs more media trolls than the U.S., by a massive margin!

    How exactly do you NOT know that?

  190. please stop the war song and start to sing peace. Let’s make the world a peaceful place for our habitation and focus on the next level

  191. One of the more propagandist articles I’ve read lately… and that says a lot!

    “Milley also considers Russia “aggressive” and “adversarial to the interests of the United States,””

    First statement is pure propaganda… Russia’s actions in recent memory have been based on counter-attacking other aggressors, or defending nations who have requested their help.

    Second statement is only true because the interests of the U.S. tend to be adversarial to the world as a whole. But by and large, Russia’s behavior is benevolent and defense-oriented.

    Generally, one gets the feeling that this is just an attempt to increase levels of fear and paranoia against Russia, and taint the waters to garner support for U.S. in the event of a future conflict against Russia.

  192. Russia has never been a friend of the West, not even since their revolution of 1917 when their stated objective was to conquer the cultures of the West; and that includes America; President Roosevelt introduced them to us by recognizing their existence; and it’s been all down hill since then.

  193. Damn right, Russia can destroy us. Probably China, too. It’s the crazed and hated NEOCONS who have hijacked our foreign policy who don’t seem to understand that. That’s why we desperately need to get them out of power and keep them out.

  194. Russia and China both have nuclear bombs. You’d have to be brain dead to think that any nation capable of bombing the world out of existence don’t pose a threat – this includes the United States by the way.

    You should research who operates RT News, and maintain a more critical outlook.

  195. The days of the monopoly of all powers at the world stage are long gone;
    with the reemergence of the Federation of Russian Republics powerful
    and ultra modern Armed Forces the dreams of unilateral military
    aggression on smaller and defenseless countries won’t be realizable
    anymore.

  196. Do you disagree with me? I mean, that’s fine by me, but I’d at least like to know what you think I got wrong. I never said that American news sources were any better than RT News.

  197. Show or name just one single American news source that has anything positive to say about Russia ? That sounds like American stupidity to me.

  198. I am an American and I agree with you 100%. This sorry excuse for a president oBUMa has done everything possible to restart the cold war but what more could you expect from the first Mulatto president ?

  199. Well, the source was speaking on Russia Today, which is ran by the Russian Government… so, take from that what you will. They’ve given airtime to a lot of lunatics, and when it comes to Russian affairs their coverage usually consists of blatant propaganda. I’m not saying it’s any worse than Western media, but it’s hardly any more legitimate either.

  200. ask bush and cheney they rake billions of dollars during their era and now republican politicians wants to do the same with their $680Billion idea.

  201. Well unfortunately for you mr paid american troll im from Europe 3500 miles away from Russia. You sound like standard USA paid agent with same old standard tactic insult all commenters in world to hide fact that its not Russia on USA border but otherwise. You cant hide truth and facts. Continue work for evil that support ISIS. 18 trillion debt, you are soon to brake.

  202. Milley also considers Russia “aggressive” and “adversarial to the interests of the United States – Translation “Russia refuses to take orders from Washington and refuses to be told who and what to support.” That is unacceptable in the new world order, which the US defines as “We give the orders, and the World follows them”.

  203. Obviously each power has the capability to destroy the other. Will they? Unlikely. However, an unstable country with nukes could easily start a nuclear war. Imagine nuclear powered Pakistan falling into the hands of extremists or India or France with its burgeoning muslim population.

  204. Russia + China = Doomsday…. But Putin is a sensible man. He will never go to war with the US… China ??? Anything could happen !

  205. Russia is not existential threat to USA. WH wormongers are existential threat to USA. Russia disband Pact of Warsawe, and disolved USSR, taking path for peace and cooperation with west and USA. Putin is regarding USA as “our partners and friends”. In opposition to Russian peaceful behavior and disarmemnt, USA continue with cold war practice, NATO was not disband, but it was enlarged towards Russian borders, and aggression was started against Russia friendly countries in the different parts of the world, just to mention Yugoslavia, Serbia, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Georgia, Ukraine. All Russian action have been reaction to USA aggressive behavior threatening Russia and its interests. No USA aggression, no Russian threat. Hitler knows that.

  206. “Russia’s military far more advanced than that of U.S.” My question is, so the U.S spends $600 billion on military expenses while Russia just spends $80 billion. What is the U.S doing with that extra $520 billion?

  207. NOT hardly.

    “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.” – Yours truly ;-)

    Russia and China came out of NO where with a vast military buildup.

    Since the “cold war,” EVERYONE thought Russia and China were too weak economically and militarily to pose even a hint of a threat.

    NOW, the world’s paying attention, with raised eyebrows, and, we’re about to be at war with NOT only Russia, but, China, and their allies, too.

    This is NOT just Russian propaganda. The U.S. Army General in the article said himself how great a threat that Russia is.

    READ, dude, READ!!!

    Research, people, RESEARCH!!!

    Do I believe and think that the U.S. and our allies can win a war against Russia and China?! Yes, but, NOT without suffering devastating casualties and HUGE amounts of destruction.

    We NEED MUCH BETTER LEADERSHIP THAN WHAT WE HAVE, AND, WE MUST STOP MAKING OUR U.S. ARMY A KINDER, MORE GENTLER ARMY, ALLOWING FEMALES INTO OUR SPECIAL FORCES.

    We are and have become the laughing stock of the entire world.

    And, with our current, present, so called, supposed leadership and administration, it’s NO wonder our enemies don’t fear U.S. anymore. NO WONDER!!! Just look at our pathetic, ignorant, incompetent, weak, inactive, so called, supposed leadership and administration!!!

    WHAT LEADERSHIP???!!! WHAT ADMINISTRATION???!!!

    WHAT A JOKE, AND, THEY’RE ONLY GOING TO FURTHER DESTROY U.S., IF THEY REMAIN IN POWER!!!

    TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE!!!

    WE’RE COMING FOR YOU, TRAITORS AND GLOBALISTS!!!

  208. Frankly, I tend to believe that Obama has a passive – aggressive personality disorder, now on full display, in dealing with a Putin led Russia. He is so intimidated by Putin, that he doesn’t quite know which way to go, in trying to match up against him. As such, I’m afraid he’s liable to do something really, REALLY stupid, that’s going to lead to a shooting war with the Russians. In my opinion, Obama is in well over his head – and poses a real danger to us all.

  209. NOT hardly.

    “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.” – Yours truly ;-)

    Russia and China came out of NO where with a vast military buildup.

    Since the “cold war,” EVERYONE thought Russia and China were too weak economically and militarily to pose even a hint of a threat.

    This is NOT just Russian propaganda. The U.S. Army General in the article said himself how great a threat that Russia is.

    READ, dude, READ!!!

    Research, people, RESEARCH!!!

  210. Russia’s involvement in Syria is beneficial to US and i bet only few people would think likewise. For the simplest obvious reason that most failed to consider and that is, its participation will gradually reduce the arsenal of Russia. Remember US put a lot of sanction to them which clearly hurt its economy at some level forcing them to spend a lot of money to stabilize their economy and now for the support they are providing to their ally Syria.

  211. Is anyone else as infuriated as I am, with our so called, supposed leadership and administration?! Or, maybe NO one else cares?!

    Sad days indeed, for the U.S., and, our U.S. Armed Forces.

  212. “Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the U.S”., No kidding. We’ve known that for 40 years. Remember SALT and MAD? Have people just somehow forgotten what took place in the 20th century? Is he saying China is no biggie?

  213. This all mess is not about Russia being aggressive or US defensive or opposite, but all about money. The amount of money later decides who should be the boss….Humans in nature love being the boss…it started even before we declared ourselves the bosses over animals. So, let us watch this bloody wars just to gain the title of the Boss. I wish we could spent more time in exploring our planet or other planets…or just simply play a football, aww some of us would like to call it European soccer, because the Boss said so. When are we going to grow up? :)

  214. THAT’S BECAUSE YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE DRASTIC TIMES WE FACE TODAY!!! WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE, AND, SADLY, PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF DO NOT SEE IT, OR, THEY IGNORE IT, ACTING AND PRETENDING LIKE NOTHING IS GOING ON, OR, THAT IT’S GOING TO SOMEHOW GO AWAY AND DISAPPEAR, OR, FIX ITSELF.

    REALLY?! YOU’RE JUST AS MUCH THE PROBLEM, AND, THOSE LIKE YOU ARE JUST AS MUCH THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE YOU WON’T FACE AND DEAL WITH THE REAL ISSUES!!!

    ARE YOU AN AMERICAN?! BETTER START ACTING LIKE ONE!!!

    ANY AMERICAN THAT KNOWS AND UNDERSTANDS WHAT’S GOING ON, IS INFURIATED AS MUCH AS I AM!!!

    Your comment is a “little “under board if you ask me.”

  215. A typical alarmist article in the wake of today’s big-talking Russian propaganda sponsored by Putler and authored by a person with a typical all-American name Polina Tikhonova. Ha-ha-ha!

  216. Fear was basically the fuel for the cold war and MAD. Remember duck and cover? Pretty much fear driven. Anti Russia feelings today are also a remnant of those days.

    More realistically is the U.S blowing itself up trying to launch nukes. Yes U.S has more nukes but can they use them in a combat situation? Not likely. No one here needs a link to the reports on the Pentagon website. One of those reports even uses FUBAR to describe the situation.

  217. I have said numerous times, “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead.”

    I have said several years ago, that one day, the U.S. would be in a war with Russia and China. I was laughed at, and, labeled a paranoid, delusional, tin foil hat, conspiracy theorist.

    NOW, NO one’s laughing.

    Russia and China both, several years ago, came out of NO where with their vast, huge military.

    It’s as though, during the “cold war,” China and Russia acted and pretended and masqueraded around, posing to be weak and small, economically and militarily.

    During that time / since that time, they have been preparing, amassing, building, stockpiling, preparing for war, and, indeed, they are ready for a war.

    Since they have come out of NO where with their vast military buildup, NOW the world’s eyebrows are raised, and, the world is paying attention to perhaps the BIGGEST, most menacing threats the world has ever known.

    We, the U.S., and our allies, are NOT prepared for a war with China and Russia.

    Do I think and believe that we can win? Yes, I think and believe that the U.S. can and will win, but, NOT without suffering MAJOR destruction and casualties.

    And, with what mr. obola has done with our U.S. Armed Forces, NOW allowing our U.S. Army to put females in our U.S. Army Special Forces, our U.S. Army, SADLY, has once again become even a more kinder, more gentler army.

    Under the current, present so called, supposed leadership, and administration, we are and have become a JOKE, even the laughing stock of the entire world.

    With our so called, supposed leadership and administration, inaction, incompetence, ignorance, apathy, stupidity, it’s NO wonder why our enemies NO longer fear U.S.!!! NO WONDER!!! LOOK at our leaders!!!

    Until bozo the clown, obola is either removed, impeached, arrested, or…(you get the point ;-)), we are in HUGE trouble, because this impostor in the White House is NO U.S. Citizen, he’s a muslim and communist through and through, and, I for one CANNOT believe there’s not been a military coup on the White House and Washington D.C., NOT just because of bozo the clown, obola, but, many others of our so called, supposed leaders and administration.

    What a bunch of JOKES!!! They’re NOTHING but traitors, guilty of TREASON, and, they will get what’s coming to them for their TREASON, Oath Breaking, and, betraying their Oath, the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Freedom, Liberty, and Justice for ALL, America, and, the American People.

    These crooks that are serving, the majority need to be fired, arrested, and, imprisoned, even deported, for their TREASON and betrayal!!!

    I CANNOT believe that NOTHING has been done yet, to take back our Constitutional Republic, from an out of control, oppressive, tyrannical, harassing, terrorizing, criminal, corrupt, dictatorial government.

    If our Founding Fathers would be allowed to visit U.S. for only a couple of minutes, today, they would say, “What are you People doing?!” “How could you let your Country fall so far from the Constitutional Republic?!” “Get off of your butts, and, take your Country back, as we told you that it is your right, it is your duty, as American Citizens, to do, written in the Declaration of Independence!!!”

    People, what are we waiting for?!

    We need NEW and BETTER and REAL LEADERSHIP for the United States of America, like, YESTERDAY!!! A Constitutional LEADERSHIP, that will NOT stray away or betray the Constitution ever again, bringing the U.S. back to her Constitutional Republic, as One Nation, under GOD!!!

    Our so called, supposed leaders are killing and destroying U.S., and, Israel, as they have held and treated Israel in and with contempt.

    WHAT A PATHETIC, COWARDICE, TRAITOROUS, TREASONOUS, SISSY, IGNORANT, INCOMPETENT SO CALLED, SUPPOSED LEADERSHIP WE INDEED HAVE!!!

    TRULY PATHETIC, AND, IF THESE PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY, WE ARE FINISHED!!! WE ARE DEAD!!! IT IS OVER FOR U.S.!!!

    THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE IMPEACHED, REMOVED, ARRESTED, AND THROWN IN PRISON OR DEPORTED TO GUAN TANIMO BAY, OR, ABU GHRAIB, FOR THEIR TREASON, BETRAYAL, CORRUPTION, AND, CRIMINALITY, BREAKING THEIR OATHS!!!

    I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I’M MORE THAN READY TO STORM WASHINGTON D.C. AND THE WHITE HOUSE TO OUST THESE MUSLIMS AND COMMUNISTS THAT ARE DESTROYING THE U.S., OUR MILITARY, THE CONSTITUTION, DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, AND, OUR RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL, AND, OTHERS OF OUR ALLIES!!!

    WHAT A COMPLETE JOKE!!!

    HOW PATHETIC!!!

    IF WE ALLOW THESE CRIMINALS TO CONTINUE TO STAY IN POWER, THEN, WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET COMING TO US!!!

    MAKE NO MISTAKE, THOSE IN POWER WILL GET WHAT IS COMING TO THEM FROM WE THE PEOPLE!!! HOWEVER, IF WE DO NOT RISE UP, AS A ONE, UNITED, AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND TAKE ON THE TASK TO THROW OFF THIS TYRANNICAL, OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT, AND, INSTITUTE NEW GOVERNMENT, THEN WE WILL GET WHAT WE DESERVE!!!

    MAY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY HAVE MERCY, AND, MAY HE GRANT U.S. WISDOM ON HOW TO HANDLE AND DEAL WITH OUR PATHETIC, IGNORANT, INCOMPETENT, UNAMERICAN, ANTI-CHRISTIAN, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, SO CALLED, SUPPOSED LEADERSHIP!!!

    THEY WILL GET WHAT IS COMING TO THEM!!!

    WE’RE COMING FOR YOU, TRAITORS AND GLOBALISTS!!!

  218. Written by a Russian for Russian propaganda!!!
    We can zap NUKES right at their own launching pods, pretty much driving the enemy of NUKING their own selves!!!

  219. Could you help elaborate how Sochi will be instrumental in Russia’s capability to destroy the U.S as the general suggest?

  220. 1. Russia Can Destroy Us – Top U.S. Army General
    2. Russia’s military far more advanced than that of U.S. – American analyst
    If the above statements were true, America better be slave and serve a master, Russia!
    What a stupid article!

  221. Many are aware but they seem helpless. I mean what plan an armed take over of government against FBI, DHS, CIA, NSA and a 1000 other armed government organization?

  222. Really stupid comment. 3rd world where they both have a space program. With comments like that you only show your own DEEP stupidity. It is not even funny as a joke, it is just a STUPID thing to say.

  223. Ben I live in USA. Obama is the worst leader who is pro-Muslim.He wants to destroy USA and Russia so the Muslims will take over the after math. Look at his quotes in Islam. Obama is the most anti American president of my life.

  224. a bunch of lies,fire this fool!
    This article mentioned:
    1. Russia can crush US
    2. Russia technologies way more advance
    If this article is correct, America should go into hiding instead of fighting other countries. Where’s the evidence Russia has way better technologies? So America technologies are a piece of garbage? If Russia can killed US so easily and the US will sure lost 100%, you better send Russia ransom every year!
    Once Russia crushed the US, I guess we can’t do anything to them in return?
    Didn’t hear anything about we can destroy Russia! I guess Americans should go into hiding! Why are we fight all this war when Russia is so scary?

  225. Russia is “aggressive” how exactly? by fighting ISIS and US armed terrorists in Syria? Because of the Ukraine conflict that is ending and only had a total of 1200 deaths on both sides (compared to 1.2 million US killed in Iraq) that US started by overthrowing the legally elected government of Ukraine? How is Russia so “aggressive” that you keep repeating it over an over again?
    And US is “peaceful” for arming TERRORISTS in Syria?

  226. Of course America is stronger. Everybody in USSR except complete idiots knew that and I know first hand as I was growing there. And since then Russia also pretty much understand its main weapons are nuclear ones. And they also not suicidal as some religious fanatics. So, I think the general has a task of justifying more military spending and it is understandable. And it is also a business.

  227. This general pretends to be an idiot, stating Russia ‘s military is better than USA’s. It’s good, no doubt, but USA has much more power than Russia. By the way, the current aggression of Russia is no more than a reaction to USA and NATO activities against Russia. The tension is to blame USA and NATO for, not Russia. Russia could be a good, reliable ally, if not for our idiots-leaders’s (Trump said) policy toward Russia, continuously proclaiming that Russia is an enemy, and doing everything to push Russia toward China, instead of pulling it toward the West.

  228. Typical yank, this paranoid “General”. He is creating a false sense of urgency to get more money. Besides being Warmongers, Criminal (not different than ISIS), they are also corrupt. Why just a few people are aware of this in the US ?

  229. No sh*t, Sherlock! This is why the US needs to stop antagonizing Russia over the selfish interests of the globalist cabal. Ukraine mess– US engineered from the ground up. Georgia war 2008– US engineered — trained the Georgian troops, gave them weapons and sent them to shell the sleeping civilians in Ossetia. Stop sneaking around the Bear’s lair trying to kick one of its cubs or take a dump in from of the Bear’s lair. You know what happens when you wake up the Bear.

  230. Boooo this lady only has crap to report on booo. She is a one track mind and keeps recycling the same trash booo a real reporter can report on more than one thing

  231. The USA is a walmart full of fat retards, lol you should nuke each other and rid us all of your miserable existence, take out the arabs, jews and chinese too, we’ll have peace on earth :D

  232. whole world lies under ultimate US and Russia nuclear destruction already +50 years. it takes +50 years to US generals to find out?

  233. More fearmongering for the military industrial complex to stay alive “Russia is big and evil!!, we need 100 billion more in the defense budget, or theyll destroy us all! why they might even nuke the sun!!!”

    Putin has stretched out his hand on more than one occasion for peace, yet the West keeps saying hes the one crossing the red line, last I heard he wasnt the one funding alqaeda and isis “rebels”, yeah hes no saint, in fact Id put him on par with Dick Cheney, but anyone with half a braincell knows who the real shit stirrers are.

    inb4 “russian paid trolls!” lol

  234. Is the GOP trying to renew their contracts one last time before they retire or are these the new GOP guys trying to get rich. There was already talk by the Army about buying tanks they don’t need and a uniform that was useless that went in to the a billion itself., The Air Force buying a useless airplane where we spent Billions on and will never fly and now the Navy to get rid of old things that work just fine for new multi-billion dollar contracts.

  235. this is the 1st right answer to this dump general and why people like him in our army ,more like this noob and we will have war with Russia.:(

  236. Yes, Russia does have the ability to destroy the United States and the United States has the ability to destroy Russia. Who cares? This is not “who has the bigger warhead” this is an opportunity to reach across the Atlantic Ocean to our Russian counterparts in an oveture of friendship. The Russian’s have every right to pursue their national interests as any other country does.

    If I was President, that would be one of the first things I would do. The other thing I would do is get rid of the riddiculos sanctions that the US has put on Russia. The sanctions aren’t working folks and it only serves to galvanize Russia. If the United States thinks it can go toe to toe with Russia, we will be proven wrong by the Russian nuclear missiles and the Russian army when they invade the United States!!

  237. The use of nuclear weapons by the US however naive, saved millions of lives for both Japan and the United states. At the time the destructive ability of those two bombs are dwarfed I comparison to one modern nuke.. as I recall in history if Russia had a chance to do the same to Germany in ww2 they would. And Soviet stance on nuclear strikes mirrored the United states in preventive strikes during the cold war. And policy really hasn’t changed in either country.

  238. “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” – Abe L

  239. Everything outside of US control is “an existential threat” for the power maniacs. Don’t blame the neocons for not understanding this world, just put them in a zoo.

  240. Just 1 year ago Obomba called Russia “a regional power” and went on sponsoring the extermination of the Russian ethnics in Ukraine. What happened to the “exceptional power”?

  241. China should work hard to be the third country to pose an existential threat to the United States. The world needs to team up to take down that warmongering, belligerent, human-rights abusing hegemon (aka the United States!

  242. ANOTHER Boogeyman the boys in the Military – Industrial Complex NEED to justify spending BILLIONS a year on. Russia is NOT a threat at all; unless the United States WANTS them to be; through provocations and nation building.

  243. I have read some of your articles. You work, my dear, including this one, is the alarmist and amateurish work of an illogical and emotional female mind. I have no idea why someone thinks your articles rate any kind of wide readership. Welcome to America where even someone like you can have your tripe read.

  244. U guys are forgetting that US is the only country to have used nuclear weapons in the history of the world. And US is the only country to have declared they would strike preemptively against anyone whom they perceive as a threat to their interests. I guess US general calling Russia an existential threat is same as publicly declaring war on Russia.

  245. You are right. I think America needs to send it’s sons, daughters…LGBT, …everyone basically in the military to Ukraine and engage in a protracted groundwork with Russia over the Crimea.
    That’s the best idea since the invasion of Iraq and arming ISIS.
    I mean Joe Bidens son is on the board of directors of the Ukrainian national oil and gas company, that’s ethical and by God good enough to go to war over.

    Tell you what dipstick, you join up. I’d love to see you put some time on Russian targets with the thugs and thieves of the modern Army next to you.

  246. First off, Russia TOOK Crimea, not accepted it. Regardless of any dilluted vote, Crimea is part of UKRAINE. You dont change country borders legally even if a legitimate 100% of that area want it.
    Second, Assad murdered his own ppl and committed crimes against humanity losing any legitimacy. Doesnt surprise me Russia would side with a bully given her recent behavior.
    Thirdly, there is ZERO evidence that the US was behind any coup in Ukraine. The vast majority of the populous wanted the EU over not so motherly Russia and expected their leadership to represent them, its kind of their job?
    How many times in history has the US stepped in to keep peace or confront those that threatened it? How many times has the US sent manpower and resources to help other countries in need? Meanwhile Russia spends its time cherrypicking cities they can take next from their neighbors.

  247. Whether you believe this article or not- I see a very serious situation in sheik Obama sending a group of jets to Turkish airfields whose ONLY capability is air-to-air combat. This is deliberate provocation and dramatically increasing the possibility of warfare with Russia.
    This is sheer lunacy- who is Obama protecting? His al Qaeda homies? Shouldn’t we ALL be fighting ISIS?

  248. Hey General, shut up dumb axx. Russia is opposed to the expansion of Israel. Washington is ran by Zionists who run their agenda on an American engine. You General are supporting the enemies domestic. You general are a political whxxe to the MIC. You’ve whoxxed your soul and sat in silence while American kids die in wars in the ME, as your bosses send arms to terrorists, as Israeli led ISIS beheads toddlers with those weapons and US government support.

    Where is your honor General? We the soldiers once believed in you, why wouldn’t you believe in us? Why did you send our brothers to die for nothing? Why do you lie to the American people? Why have we had combat missions going on for 3 years in Syria and congress has not declared a war and your president runs amuck issuing illegal and unlawful orders you gleefully follow?

    Please General, tell us how Saddam was poised to destroy America and how he planned to do it, I’d like to know, my friends wives and kids want to know. We need to know to bring closure to our loses.
    Tell us how the Taliban were going to bring us down? Tell us why we sent 450K soldiers to Iraq and only 11,100 to Afghanistan where Bin Laden was after 9/11? We deserve to know. You hold a public position, you are paid with citizens tax dollars, answer us.

    Why was the embassy and mission in Libya guarded by private military contractors? Why were some non-citizens? Where were the Marines? Isn’t it the law to have Marines guarding embassies, consulates and missions abroad and defending US ground? What were you hiding that you had to hire PMC’s?

    What part of the Constitution do you support General? Did you just mumble your oath to go back on it when ordered to? Are you a career over country type officer? Going to do your 25-30 years, retire, write a book, and land a defense contract job for going along to get along?

    Could you not imagine an alliance against terror with the Russians? Speaking of, why did you arm muslim croatians and Bosnians and Chechens in the 90’s against Russia, only to have those people show up in Iraq killing our sons, brothers, fathers and friends? Was that a wise move? Are you qualified for your job? Do you ever have issues looking into the mirror knowing you work and serve those who hate the Constitution? Who are an anathema to this nations fabric? You’ll fly 2500 miles abroad and send our sons to die protecting Saudi’s borders, yet you do nothing about our borders, do you even see how stupid you appear?
    Oh and lastly, as you lie to America, have some military bearing and stand straight and don’t lean on the podium you sack of Sxxx.

    I think it’s funny you’ll support spraying depleted uranium all over the world, but support global warming claims and pretend to be a steward of the environment. Russia? Destroy us? Russia cannot inflict anymore damage on us than the last 4 presidents and their lousy congressmen and bankers.

  249. I thought United States is the biggest threat to the interests of the rest of the world because they seek to dominate and annihilate anyone who would not agree to them dictating to the rest of the world.

  250. General Milley…Wow I can See why hes a General Now !
    A. He Sees Russia as an external threat.
    B, He would even say that Russia’s recent behavior is adversarial to US Interest..wow!
    C.The US Must use diplomacy when it comes to Mother Russia.
    Wow this dude is smart, these other fictitious charac you made up in your story about making the us look like a dancing turkey spreading its feather to make the Russians think we are “mighty when we aren’t” is an absurd statement for anyone to make…… it just stupid lil lady . you need to get out the facts :Notice how much the US Spends each year on Weapons weapons techology it dwarfs any 5 nations put together get your act together or put your articles in the Funny Papers

  251. Russia is “adversarial to the interests of the United States”. What are the interests of the USA, by the way? World domination? I am against political and economical BDSM. Why should other countries be the US slaves? Russia is a threat to the USA only because Russia tries to protect its interests. Why does the USA have such a right but when Russia protects its interests it becomes an existential threat? Don’t forget that the USA is trying to surround Russia not Russia trying to surround the USA.

  252. The greatest enemies to American interests aren’t Russia, but Washington D.C, who seem downright determined to start a nuclear war at this point.

  253. Well, If you don’t want to go to war then stop surrounding Russia from all sides.Seeing as you look like a reasonable person, I’m sure you understand Russia’s concerns.

    Wouldn’t US react with hostility if Russia is to place nukes in North Korea tomorrow..Think about it for a second.

  254. So, Russia is aggressive because: First, they accepted Crimea back into Russia where it rightful belonged after the vast majority of Crimea’s voted to rejoin Russia. Second, Russia responded to the Syrian government’s request to help prevent the US trained, funded and armed Sunni so called rebels from overthrowing the Syrian government. Third, Russia has backed eastern Ukraine’s ethnic Russian population that held an election and voted to reject the US installed government after the US planed and funded a coup d’etat of the legal government of Ukraine. In the meantime, according to this nitwit general, the US is totally peaceful. What an incredible distortion of the truth and facts that are known to the entire world.

  255. Oh wow , what a revelation this “Made To Get Attention” article shows the world ! it just leaves out one very important thing from a total of 15,695 nuclear weapons stockpiled on the planet ,The US And its allies own About 8,000 of them and ane we can all agree that the reality of “MAD” IS STANDS FOR MUTUAL “ASSURED” DESTRUCTION…..LOL anybody or nation with grand ambitions to rule earth or whatever, it would seem to me turning out your own lights only means in the end you were a madd man wanting to commit suicide…..Lol i invite the Chinese and Russians both Bring it ! The US Does not have 800 bases around the world….Compared to a total of 30 bases around the world for all the rest of the nations combined
    and has through out history spends 80 times that of any country in the world on defense,, you prognosticators can speculate all you want the US could destroy China and Russia both in 2 hours time,,did you for get to say that? oh i forgot that wouldn’t get the attention you seek…lol

  256. I have seen many of RT’s videos on youtube and they might be the only channel to tell the truth.Their Anchors actually talk with logic and are reasonable unlike us media who is full of b.s., Brainwashing their people and fear mongering.

  257. yea, yea, yea,, and the USA can destroy Russia, and China can destroy the USA, and Russia can destroy China, and China can destroy the USA while Russia is destroying China while Israel destroys Iran….whats the point???? Any country with the bomb and a delivery system is capable of destroying any other country…pointless Yahoo article

  258. We have bigger enemies: Globalist bankers, Carbon-footprint warmongers, and Mexicans. Before Russia gets to tear us apart Mexico will have already eaten us out and China will have downed another jet.

  259. This is the last time I ever read from Yahoo “news”, that sends me to this website seemingly run from someone’s kitchen. So long Yahoo.

  260. We HAVE to spend more than Russia and China just to stay competitive. We have expenses they don’t have. When we allocate $500 Billion to the military budget that gets us less than THEY can get for the same amount. Don’t forget we spend $43 million just to build one gas station.

  261. And why do you think it exists as part of “WRITING”?

    You don’t see every word in “CAPS”.

    There are those things called “QUOTES & EMPHASIS” depending on the “CONTEXT”; especially online when specific points must be framed in order to make sense amongst “IDIOTS” who pick and choose to read “COMMENT AND REPLIES” in their own “PERSPECTIVES”.

    If anything, I never claim any “INTELLIGENCE”. You just imply I mean to infer so on your own.

    THERE MUST BE A REASON!!!

  262. I bet the 4 that landed in Iran were alarming. US fired 800 during Iraq war, all landed in Iraq. They were fired from every ship imaginable.

  263. Oh great, we can restart the Cold War!! What stocks should we buy??
    Will the boys ever stop playing?? Yes, when we reduce their budget by 50% and we would still spend more than China or Russia[probably together]!!

  264. Any war in Europe would be a disaster for Putin. He’s outnumbered by over 4-1. He is heavy into offensive weapons, but helpless defensively. He doesn’t like the defensive shield because it would blow up his nukes over Russia.

  265. Russia couldn’t even get their land bridge to Crimea. They haven’t fought a real war since the one they got pounded by, Afghanistan.

  266. A smart person who would know our political system. Knows a president can’t go to war without Congressional approval. Are you smart, or just a Obama hater?

  267. I checked to find author & source of story, both are Russian. I bet all the books in the children’s library are Russian to. Russian are long on bluff, & short on substance.

  268. you know what lets get to the root of the problem here …….you only made this post to stir the pot LOL whats that say about you a real reporter can unite people not build walls

  269. Its bad we in our country society argue what country can destroy which. both have the bombs to take each other out war w3illnot be pretty if and when we fight.

  270. Unfortunately third world countries are practice… The US starts wars then pulls out leaving a very irresponsible power vacuum, leaving the region in chaos.. never solving the problem that was not solvable in the first place.

  271. Russia can do all of this to the us, but the us is the leading country thats imposing sanctions on russia. One thing we can all agree on russia have not attempted to destroy the us with not one nuke. Putin isnt that crazy. he know exactly what would be the repurcussions would be. the us is facing both russia and china down at the same time. of course we dont want to go to war with either, but you can best believe we can matc them with some bomb for bomb and nuke for nuke. quit talking insane.

  272. If a PSYOPS guy like Bennet’s admonitions are to be simply accepted at face value the obvious conclusion is that we should tread very carefully around the Russians. Even more so if a Russian philology major is the messenger…..

  273. Russia’s nuclear arsenal is not just can destroy US, it can destroy the earth 10 times over. In the meantime China officially claim they have 300 nuclear in the arsenal(the real number could be much more than that), which could destroy US or effectively send US into third world status.

  274. What a load of horse crap! Is this author on crack? This is a bunch of russian propaganda nonsense I have ever read. Russian military tech is superior to that of the US? One in three missiles fired by Russia in Syria missed their targets! ONE IN THREE!!

  275. I’m sure China wouldn’t be too upset if the US and Russia wipe each other off the face of the earth….but then there wouldn’t be much of an earth left from the resulting devastation. Many areas would be uninhabitable for a long time and who would China sell all of their goods to??? The major source of food products for the world would be gone….it would be hard times for any surviving species. We had all better hope that this never happens.

  276. Let me tell you one thing, Countries only side with US only cause of $$$.During first sign of trouble, Every last one of them will chicken out.

  277. US doesn’t have the balls to mess with the guy who can fight back, Fact.They can only wage war and destroy third war countries.

  278. Scott Bennett is mistaken in several ways. We aren’t attempting to goad Russia into a war. Using Bennet’s logic, we are weaker militarily than is Russia AND we want war with them. Now how stupid would that be?

    #1 We have a stronger military than Russia although nukes even everything out.
    #2 Obama has shown that he does not want war with Russia under any circumstance.

    This Bennett character just seems to be out to smear our President. That’s it.

  279. This is a very good article. It scratches the surface of the weakness in the US Navy. Aircraft carriers went the way of battleships in 30 years after WWII only the US kept the myth alive. They are status, but of no strategic value and very vulnerable from both above and below the surface. All Russia needs to do is maximize its presence in one place while the US must maximize its presence in dozens of places. It is a self defeating defense posture.

  280. Yeah the russian woman that wrote this article looks nice…but still this article had to have been proof read by the kremlin…

  281. So, we the United States who spends 10 times more then the next 10 nations of the world can be destroyed by Russia because of a nuclear weapon. How dense does she thing we are? Russia wouldn’t fare any better as our nuclear capability is scattered throughout the oceans and land mass. Hit us once and Russia would be hit with a battery of bombs. Probably only the Middle East with all that sand would survive.

  282. All this russian propaganda from A russian journalist. If it goes that far you can bet you can say by to Russia as well.

  283. Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the U.S., according to Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley.
    General we’ve known that for 50 years. Have you been sleeping?

  284. This author must have been trained by Moscow’s propaganda machine! I think editorials like this is Russia’s most deadly weapons. Half truths and out of context. Most likely reason a US general would say something like what was in this article is to get more defence funding. For Russia to even ponder the use of nukes means Russia is scared they would lose a conventional war. The US would only entertain the idea of using nukes if Russia was going to. Either way Russia would lose… and in both cases, the world would be the biggest loser.

  285. We are already in the arms race.USA,China and Russia are in very troublesome situation right now.Its imperative ,in my view, to have open and honest debate in UNSC about the issues which divide us.Periodic provocations,skirmishes , tit for tat and economic sanctions against each other will speed up ultimate destruction of human race on this Planet.

  286. According to this BS article, the US might as well give Alaska back to Russia. Really!? This isn’t journalism, it’s poorly written propaganda.

    The US is clearly THE military power in the world. The only reason Russia is even in the conversation is because of it’s legacy soviet nuclear technology.

  287. Hi Mikey
    It happened on May 9, 2015, as the FUK (oops, I mean BUK) tank was about to be introduced. Look it up, okay Spanky?

  288. LOL post and trolls don’t win wars they start them not one person here in the usa fears Russia or china respect and fear are two different things we respect Russia not fear them don’t get it twisted Russia had to use a bike gang to beat ukrain try that in the usa gangs are much more crazy and they removed 3 of my post with links to back me up usa has more nukes and if they send any so will we don’t get it twisted

  289. LOL! Russia, China, and now North Korea… fairly soon Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Egypt….you name it, they will all get nukes….. and the first one that leaves the atmosphere will doom us all…. I just hope some humans are off planet and surviving elsewhere by then.

  290. they claim Putin has bad health– apparently he broke a bunch of ribs, and busted his gut. They claimed it happen from laughing so hard after watching Obombers workout video.

  291. You remember well– PS. I still believe your not to far from the truth NOW. We only hear the WH house side. I watch for actions by the same countries you allude to– and its not much

  292. The reason Obomber and Putin can’t get a long is they are to much alike.
    1. Both breath Lies like air
    2. Both control the press
    3. both are socialist, and promote socialism as a way of life
    4. both see themselves as dictator
    5. Both have tried to seize land west of them.

  293. Or the F18 crashing that pilot to its death more recently. 200 million in radar equipment coming crashing down. Accidents across the globe these days.

  294. This kinda training kicks in when the U.S military needs funding …

    Russia could lay waste to the U.S and the US would lay waste to Russia. Bla bla bla. It’s been like that for quite sometime now.

  295. USA/AMERICA IS GETTING A REALITY CHECK!!!

    Obama is “DELUSIONAL”.

    The same guy who dares to say “RUSSIA IS A REGIONAL POWER”.

    What an “IMBECILE” reading through “TELEPROMPTERS” society was duped to believe is smart.

    I am glad of my “INSIGHT” I was able to see through this fool.

    “THE AUDACITY OF HOPE”…lol…

    Bush was “DUMB”, this one is even “DUMBER”!

    WHAT A WASTE OF WORLD POWER AND STATUS!

    GO TRUMP…2016

  296. This can’t be true Obama said it wasn’t and Mocked Mitt Romney for even suggesting it as a possibility and we know Obama can always be trusted.

  297. Well done Almighty Russia, please bring back Tsar Bombs to the show. America need to be taught a lesson and moral behavior on how to respect their big brothers. (The Russians).

  298. you guys are way behind– we have pushed the reset–and have no interest in some cold war started before Obomber was born— our threat is global warming. Now get out there and vote for the reset queen. I hope you get enough of this liberalism, until it spews out your nose holes

  299. I believe the author of this article needs to get a new set of glasses, then picked up and escorted around all branches of the military and shown their R and D projects and I wish it was possible to get him clearance to our really good toys and then see what he thinks then. Believe me, I and my family sleep sound at night and so should you. Our and the worlds problem is nuclear war and the really scary part is when you get a leader who thinks that a nuclear war is winnable.

  300. I guess that the military is trained to have this kind of mindset so that they can stay alert. That everyone is out there to get them. They are threats. Is Russia already an enemy that they are now a threat to the US? Russia is a threat only if she is already considered an enemy. So is China. Iran yes because of their rhetorics and their actions. ISIS, Al Qaeda and Taliban obviously.

  301. george patton was right.he said” Gimme 400,000 gallons of gasoline and well march over there and kick them sons of btches asses! why not do it now while we are here? otherwise we will have to deal with them later on”..so uncle sam deemed George Patton crazy and relieved him of his command.

  302. Putin blitzkrieg move in Syria has the West and NATO in a daze. Looking at weapons of mass destruction fly a thousand miles from the Caspian sea and strike it’s target with precision will be definitely alarming for the Western Military Generals.

  303. I think he’s correct and I think Putin is enough of a psychopath to do something crazy on a whim! Thank God we still got a few top brass like Milley. How about we put him in the White House and yank Obama out of there? I’d feel safer!

  304. Russia is the only country in the world with the nuclear capability to destroy the U.S

    NO SHIT, BEEN THAT WAY SINCE 1953.

  305. General Milley’s face is scary. He looks like he finally came out of a bunker and to his surprise, there was no war, then looked in a mirror and got scared all over again.

  306. Haha wow this author is quite the fear monger. This is your
    3rd article on this today. Maybe you should get a life. Really though do
    you have some secret agenda you are trying to prove?
