We sent one boat to the black sea. It said to Russia "plis stahp, why u do dis?" Then went back home because it was one boat.
The US is an empire basically, we have bases all over the world, we may have a massive military, but for the scope of our operations we are spread thin.

It is a shitty Empire unfortunately heck Britain sent a fleet all the way down to the Falklands to fight for a shitty Island that is probably only good for oil. Russian Expansion should have been a case of not just the US but the Whole of Europe sending ships to the black sea and screaming Fuck off, Similar to the Crimean war in the 1800's.

Stalin was really good at controlling large masses with his Iron Fist politics. He really did not succeed in advancing technology and could care two shits less about technology it would be the leaders after him that accomplished those goals. He was good at two things controlling the people and being a military figure.
Pytor Alexeyevich also known as the Peter the Great who was a Tsar from 1682 to his death in 1725 did what no other leader before him had done he modernized Russia. Peter the Great was the man who is created as the Grandfather of the Russian Navy and is credited as being the man who created Yacht club. He Through a number of successful wars he expanded the Tsardom into a much larger empire that became a major European power. He led a cultural revolution that replaced some of the traditionalist and medieval social and political systems with ones that were modern, scientific, westernized, and based on The Enlightenment. That many still existing modern Russian institutions can trace their very origin to.
Stalin's Administration did little to nothing because of internal strife and conflict. They started making great technological advances around the time of Nikita Khrushchev and Yuri Andropov.

Communism in the form they used is good for turning agricultural society into a industrial society. Yes.
Problem is that once it becomes industrial society, and especially as it moves from industrial to post industrial, its completely economically unsupportable.
Did Russia advance faster after revolution than it would have if it was turned into a constitutional democratic monarchy? Yes. Was that good for it long term? No.
Its like watching a 26 mile marathon. You have one guy running at full sprint first three miles and than collapse and drag himself barely rest of the way. Or you have a guy who runs at a steady jog all the way. First guy will take a massive lead. But second guy will win by at least ten miles.

I agree with you there but one thing I have a question is how in the living fuckin hell did Mikhail Gorbachev do to keep the fucking Soviet Russia running when it was already in shambles and on the verge of collapse how did this one fucker keep it together with duct tape to the next leader and the fall of the Soviet state.

Mostly by instituting massive economic changes, perestroika and glasnost.
Bringing soviet market closer to socialist and farther from communist.
Also by opening dialogue with the west and opening some trade that brought much needed money to Soviet Union.
He had to walk the fine line between hard core communists and people who wanted reforms, and basically keep system that wasn't able to compete anymore in the race.
He did pretty good, but he was really just postponing the inevitable.
Soviet Union couldn't have been brought down militarily. But economy crushed it.
