if we made them feel like we are not out to get them it might help a lot. we
where on the same side in world war 2. we could be closer with them they have
some of the same problems as we do.
Even Russia has acknowledged that the USA has a clear advantage in conventional
weaponry. We worked long and hard, and spent a lot of money to gain that
advantage. It would now be totally foolish to give back that advantage to a
lacking behind Russia. That advantage is also over every other
nation in the world. As the only remaining world superpower, it is vital to our
own security interests to maintain a defensive superiority over avowed and
potential enemies. To level the playing field in that regard, as Russia
obviously wants and admits, would be one of the biggest military mistakes we
could possibly make. Our primary security lies in strength. And to purposely not
continue being stronger than our enemies would be simply ludicrous. It would
open the door to disaster in the not too distant future. As long as
there are countries like Iran, North Korea, and even China out there, it is
absolutely imperative that we continue maintaining our military superiority.
