>Into Military power
***** please, all of Russia's force is forced conscription, they have some of the highest defection rates, and some of the highest inter homicide rates, meaning that the hazing is so bad in the Russian military, they're killing each other. Russia's military is also corrupt as hell, hell, many recruiters are bribed by teenagers so that they don't have to be conscripted. Much of their Armor and Ordnance is old as hell, though I must admit, their Special Forces are hard core as **** .

Thing is they dont care how many people they lose in order to win

Which allowed them to kick Germany's ass using ****** equipment, which only half their army had the luck of using.
User avatar #18 to #15 - ramie (12/19/2013) [-]
No it was the winter and lack of supplies and Germany fighting 3 fronts that allowed them to kick Germany's ass. Germany took over half of Russia in under 6 months...until winter hit.

They never made it to Moscow, and Moscow is not even 1/4 of the way into Russia.

Russia had the most casualties though.

That's... Kind of the point of the discussion.

The Russians don't really "win", they just stretch out the war so long, that the opposite side can't fight anymore. It's called Pyrrhic victory. Pit the Russians against a force that has decent supplies, and logistics, and they will lose.

No, we never officially fought. If we fought Cuba, there wouldn't be a Cuba anymore.

When did the US and Cuba ever fight?
User avatar #333 to #323 - nitsuan (12/20/2013) [-]
I was thinking that, but then I realized that the Bay of Pigs hardly constituted as a war. It was a CIA funded operation using Cuban exiles as soldiers aimed at killing Castro. If it were an actual war Cuba would not have stood a chance

I just figured it was the closest thing to fighting that we did. Good enough.

Couldn't be more inaccurate, why are amerifag 9 year olds making these comics like they have a ******* clue about how strong a countries defense budget is.
As for "everything we've done for you".

1, Provide weapons in WW2

2. .... Can't think of anything else.

As if Russia is even slightly of concern.

Yeah, yeah, screw the enemy economically! That worked in the past with the Treaty of Versailles right? The Germans weren't extremely resentful about the reparations tanking their economy, right?

What's the worst the country with the most nuclear weapons in the world could do?
#204 to #202 - anonymous (12/19/2013) [-]
i think you do not understand how highly russia is vulnerable to the europeans shutting down the gas pipelines.
it would actually mean starvation.
but neither side has an interest in a conflict.
#217 to #204 - valeriya (12/19/2013) [-]
>Shut down gaspipe lines to Russia
>Freeze and industry in europe grinds to a halt.

Russia for the last few years has turned off the gas pipes citing Ukrainian corruption and it's Europe that suffers when this happens.
#220 to #217 - anonymous (12/19/2013) [-]
europe has other sources of gas. it would get more expensive, but they wouldn't run out of it.
you shouldn't confuse russias economic power over ukraine with that over france, germany or the UK.
User avatar #207 to #204 - Jackimole (12/19/2013) [-]
Obviously neither side has an interest in conflict.

Germans were starving after WWI. All I'm saying is that if the EU decided to gang up, and severely economically punish Russia, they'd just be setting themselves up for a fourth Reich. They probably wouldn't call themselves that, but you get my point.
#214 to #207 - anonymous (12/19/2013) [-]
while germany was still an economic powerhouse even during the weimar times and had, oh see an economic partner called sowjetunion, russia is highly dependet on imports as their industry still lies in shatters. they cannot fourth reich, because you need an economic foundation for that.
User avatar #228 to #214 - Jackimole (12/19/2013) [-]
There wasn't much of a economic foundation in the weimar republic, unemployment and inflation were both incredibly high. Hitler turned the economy around by creating an economic foundation for Germany. He built factories, gave out loans, and spent heavily on public works projects. Plus, you can't really stop buying gas from Russia if they invade you.
#230 to #228 - anonymous (12/19/2013) [-]
you seem to lack knowledge about the german economy. it is true, that just after the war, especially by the physical reparations the allies took from them, the german economy was down, but that simply isn't true for the late weimar republic. and even an german industry in crisis was outshining most other industries on the continent.
Hitler did nothing but building a giant snowballsystem wich in the end ruined the german economy, wich was rising again when he took over (the autobahn for example was allready planed in the weimar republic).
User avatar #250 to #230 - Jackimole (12/19/2013) [-]
It's true, I'm not much of an expert on the German economy, kinda learning as I go along, worst case I make an ass of myself on the internet, but learn something.

I don't think the German economy was doing so hot when Hitler took over, as the great depression was in full swing. Unemployment was skyrocketing, and GNP was plummeting when Hitler took over.

I don't think Hitler destroyed the economy as much as the invasion and destruction of Germany.

There is a difference between forcing reperations and economically isolating a country
User avatar #235 to #234 - Jackimole (12/19/2013) [-]
Yes, but isolating Russia economically would still piss off the people, and make them tend towards extremist politics.

Japan is already increasing it's military spending which has been justified by the recent development of china declaring air rights over some of japan's historical islands for more info read here : www.scmp.com/news/asia/article/1383903/japan-boost-military-spending-china-row-simmers
User avatar #306 to #129 - nitsuan (12/19/2013) [-]
Their military is limited to a self defense force. It is up to Japan to decide what is necessary in its defense, so upping the spending to make it better is perfectly logical and within the bounds of their pacifist constitution.
User avatar #149 to #129 - brisineo ONLINE (12/19/2013) [-]
Japan and SK have been recently talking about reestablishing their militaries from paranoia of North Korea or China doing something stupid. Heck, even Japan, which censored anything nuclear related 10 years ago is thinking of getting some of their own.

Granted, the US still probably would back most of their defense for a long time still, but they probably are wanting a bit more of a deterrent for their missile-happy neighbors.

Well, Russia's military isn't worth a damn right now. They are poor, most of their military is older than the average in the rest of the world and there are reasons to believe they lie about their military expenses.

Anyhow, they still have enough bombs to make sure no building in Europe is left standing.

it's only to help the conflicts in arabia, maghreb and all that. European countries are much less concerned of the anti-american sentiment in other countries and resort much less to war contracting, so policing and going to war internationally is definitely not on the EU agenda. Europe's biggest safety net is its economic bonds
