  • Russia could have a war with us and win. They could win ground and maybe air warfare.

  • Can they wage war? Ofcourse. Winning is another question but they certainly have the means for a war that could kill millions, that's not including nukes. Think of all the chemical, biological, space, convetional and god knows what weapons they have.

  • waging war yes .. winning ... with Obama as president probable ... unfortunately.. they would have to make the land unlivable however occupation would never happen !

    People love to underestimate. The United States is powerful, but we are not THAT powerful.

    Its not just the U.S, its also our allies.

    Ive noticed a trend of people underestimating the disparity between the US and its allies vs the rest of the world. As the current situation stands, no one can beat the US.

    That does not mean there would not be severe losses in the conflict however.

    Every war has casualties. This kind will definitely have world war sized casualties counts. But that doesn't change the fact that the US can inflict far more damage than they will receive.

    I agree but people have a tendency to make a conflict of this scale sound like a walk in the park that NATO would win.

    True. Even though the US has a huge advantage, Russia is still a formidable country. Fighting them will never be easy. I hope we never have to actually get that far, but if you do Im confident we can come out on top.

    Lots of people would die. The US would be bombed a ton, due to long range missiles. It could honestly go either way.
