This is a bit of a Russian anti-American site, but they are correct about one thing America has not yet realized: Russia is back, and its military is now vastly stronger and superior to the US’s – partly due to a $150 billion US loan in 1998 during the Soviet collapse (which Russia has never repaid, BTW).
$150 billion goes along way to rebuild a military in the midst of a nationwide economic collapse. And Russia has pulled off the deception brilliantly. We have helped rebuild our former nemesis with our own money. We are vastly in debt, and their military is now powerful – all the ingredients needed for a final showdown between the two superpowers.
And you thought the cold war was over.
