In what world could Russia defeat the US today? Their GDP is *~6%* of ours and their military is no where near as strong/advanced as ours and their economy is no where near as diversified as ours is - if the world economy crumbles their #1 money maker - energy - goes down the toilet. About the only way they could beat the US at anything is if they got off nukes first and were able to land them before we could retaliate/shoot them down. In other words, zero chance Russia starts a war with the US unless we are going to invade them imminently.

You are right at some point the US will face a threat to the country, but that will most likely either be a China or a united Europe down the road, not Russia.
