re: If Russia Started a War in the Baltics, NATO Would Lose — Quickly - Darth_Vader
[quote]Maybe Russia knows that Eastern Europe is ripe for the picking. Our force levels are low. And given our current foreign policy, would we do anything about it? Perhaps Crimea was a "dry run" so to speak, see what the US and allies would do. [/quote] Well considering Europe poses no real t...

[quote]Because they know Russia is not a soft target. The Chinese are many things, but they are not idiots. That manmade island/airstrip that they have in the South China Sea has become a real game-changer in that region.[/quote] Indeed at has. And could lead to a war in that area. It's not a s...

re: If Russia Started a War in the Baltics, NATO Would Lose — Quickly - Darth_Vader
[quote]This is ridiculous. Russia has much more to fear from China than they do Europe or the Middle East. A better question would be how would Russia handle a Chinese acquisition of territory? [/quote] From a military standpoint, you're correct. China's military is far and away more poten...

re: If Russia Started a War in the Baltics, NATO Would Lose — Quickly - Darth_Vader
[quote]The problem isn't so much the 1950s era Soviet AA guns. It's the missiles, baw. A-10s are marvelous attack planes and are robust and survivable craft, but they're no match for even modest surface to air missile capabilities. That would all have to be cleared first with very specialized units ...

[quote]If the UK and France do not go nuclear, they will not last on the battlefield with a real opponent, i.e. Russia, more than about 90 days. [/quote] And I'd add that Germany would probably only last a week, maybe two if it had to go toe to toe with the Russians. ...
