People don't look back at history to see that with time, especially under pressure, and during total war, huge technological advancements are made and your army is built up en masse."
Maybe in a time of war a country can quickly make some new developments but it's not possible for a country to catch up with U.S technology overnight. According to your theory any country could claim they could destroy America because "under pressure they can make rapid technological advances". In a war with Russia I wouldn't say the U.S. would win as both countries have nuclear weapons but they would have the upper hand.
How many times have I repeated myself over this same shit? We're not in the Cold War era anymore, the threat of nuclear weapons is MINOR. We're living in the 21st century. There are military research and development corperations in the United States that design your nuclear technology and weapons under foreign specifications which means they could easily blame another country in a false flag nuclear attack, and as well as those working under DOD which have leaks into Russian intelligence agencies. Even if hundreds of them are flying through the sky, don't forget 100 year old Tesla technology could easily make them disappear. Day to day advancements in science has made a large scale war like that between two powerful nations with a literally impossible victorious outcome for one side.
On the other hand, the US and Russia are allies, regardless of all the talk in the media or all the nationalistic hype. The people who pull the strings call the shots, not the people. And the people who pull the strings consider each other business partners, not political or national or ideological or historical rivals.
It all doesn't matter now...
There is this Macedonian lady living in Waterloo region of Ontario, Canada who's grandfather is an original Romanov who escaped during the Russian Revolution. She's my mother's best friend ever since they were children.
As for CURRENT, OFFICIAL technology, that's non-classified, not to be released in the future like the atomic bomb was, technology - the ones they're using today - yes, of course, if the US had larger numbers of it they would win in a conventional war against Russia.
That's setting aside the REALISTIC scenarios which show that a US victory against Russia is not theoretically but literally impossible - and vice versa. Russia - even if it turns DC into dust and rubble, cannot win a conventional war in the US without being exhausted.
That scenario is more of a bitter Cold War rivalry. Russia has no intention of destroying the entire American infastructure if it gets nothing out of it besides losses and some pride..
You have a massive insurgency to deal with then. That war will last for decades, and all the developments taken during that time for both sides - the rebellions and their scientists and oh..
Impossible. You're going from Red Dawn to fucking Stormtroopers vs the Wookies and Ewoks.
This is why if there is a secret war going on right now that will eventually lead to a conventional one - the current stage is an economic war. Of course, in overall economics, the current US free market wins over the Russian concept, right? But Russia and China are taking advantage of the current situation and that is the debt the US owes to the world.
For one, they dumped the US dollar for Euros.
China also offered to buy up America's debt, and that's basically taking over 50 percent of the US economy, or in fractions 1/2. How? Well..
The US has just under 14 trillion dollars in external debt, as the worth of the GDP goes. Half of that is owed to China, since it manufactures the majority of their goods.
Unless the US implements Fascistic rule in economy - which goes against it's promised constitution of course - it cannot pay it back through it's current free market state.
And of course, the idea of America is freedom - most famously economic freedom. Large corperations constantly "donate" to high ranking politicians for them to pass laws in order to do their bidding, but usually avoidant of the public's eyes and ears - for Americans are rebellious motherfuckers - born and raised the way the country promised them. If you are born into slavery, you will accept it. If you have a middle class life and are handed a sickle by the people you trusted to ensure your middle class lifestyle, and everyone you know too - will not use it to dig through the soil, no they'll use it to cut your fucking head off for screwing them over in such an unexpected way.
I live in Macedonia. It's a small, poor country, but the people are strong - physically, mentally and spiritually. Honest work does not make a good honest buck, and the people pulling strings are constantly draining the people, and as the people who pull the strings pay off a large portion of the people to keep the others in line, it's impossible to complain without suffering concequences and getting no reward in the end. So they have to find dirty ways to make money and join the sharade. Also, Macedonians are good to everyone but to eachother. Wherever they go abroad, they never help eachother out as they did back home, but they'll bend over backwards for others. That's what makes it even worse...if a Macedonian has something and another Macedonian doesn't, the Macedonian who doesn't have it will do everything in his power to make sure that the Macedonian who has it loses it and not only that he will put such emotion and pressure on the Macedonian who had it so the Macedonian who had it will never even think about getting it again, so the Macedonian who didn't have it can get it for himself quicker and easier until another Macedonian who doesn't have it comes by and does the same to the Macedonian who now has it. Understand??
Recently - in my town we have a pizza type delicacy called the pastramalija. This is a town tradition. Now a local company under a notorious business leader or more so mafia/narco-terrorist boss - the company having the same name as the nickname of the owner - LS - has worked with the local government to create a logo for the delicacy, and copyright it under it's ownership.NOW ANY RESTURANT CHEF OR OWNER WHO WANTS TO SELL THE DELICACIES IN HIS FUCKING BUSINESS HAS TO PAY A MONETARY CONTRIBUTION TO LS FOR EVERY DELICACY HE SELLS.
The people make a miserable 150 dollars a month on average.
They just keep finding ways to drain the people even more...and even though it's obvious who's dumb enough to complain when they know beforehand that no one will listen and that nothing will change back???
The European Union is destroying our culture even more. We have the kafanas, now they outlawed smoking in them. That famous song by Sinan Sakic sve je postalo pepeo i dim is just about that...
"All that was left was ash and smoke."
As the people got poorer, the economic situation worsened and prices went up, alot of popular resturaunts became...abandoned/closed down.
Now with the laws with the kafanas...Christ. Fucking EU reforms. I understand nightclubs not allowing smoking...it's mostly children there anyways and the athmosphere is casual, for dancing, not for drinking and smoking. But bars? Wow..
And most of both are smaller than the requirements to open up smoking and non smoking sections anyways.
Yet again, win win situation for those allied with the guys who pass the laws to suit their own needs.
