@Magus -- Russia could easily defeat us and NATO in a ground based infantry and mechanized assault. they could overrun Europe any time that they want and we would be forced to use the most horrible weapons to attempt to repel them. they have a much stronger ground assault force and military than all of NATO combined. we are not setup for this type of warfare. their territory is its own defense force, see Winter. they are too big to destroy every square inch or person. they can take care of themselves economically and agriculturally. a nuclear attack on their invading forces also can be risky to Europe due to blast diameter and fallout zones. they are a tougher people than we are due to their lifestyle and experiences and their military is accustomed to being tough and most are dedicated professionals. yes, they do have demographic and other social problems, but some of them actually make them tougher to battle.|
the above scenarios have been war-gamed by our military leaders. there is politics and there is reality. they deal with the latter.
