Who is more of a threat to America?
Russia has the capability to destroy the US with nuclear weapons...today.
ISIS has the capability to make us voluntarily give up our rights by scaring the bejesus out of us with a few well places bombs.
ISIS is the clear and present enemy at the moment. Russia will be around for a long time and it's unlikely we will ever be allies. Putin has an agenda and we stand in the way of it. Also, if Russia wanted to influence what the US did the worst way to go about it would be to support Trump. Trump is a strong president who doesn't take shit from anyone, Hillary offered a big red button (that was misspelled) and OBAMA said he'd be more flexible. Also, if Putin was in charge of hacking the DNC why didn't he just use what he found to blackmail Hillary? It would be a secret arrangement where obviously the same cannot be said for helping Trump.
Russia wants to trade and make money.
ISIS wants to blow up anyone resisting Sharia Law.
A dictator with nuclear weapons that has openly discusses his hatred for the US
A gang of religious extremists who kill less American than lightning strikes do annually
While trump is president, who knows.
A second rate military? We send our kids off to summer camp and they send theirs to camps set up to teach children loyalty and fighting. We have our own petty squabbles of Trump and Hillary, but their moving divisions into Ukraine. Although your ISIS analogy was quite accurate.
Both are about the same. However, Russia operates via manipulations, whereas ISIS obviously is straightforwardly violent.
What is the threat from Russia? Supermodels steal all the guys?
Russia is a puppet enemy held up to scare us. Russia's greatness left w the last Tsar. Putin really just wants to trade and take our stuff. Like ENGLAND and Germany, and China, and Mexico.
But not CANADA.
Canadians just want a Warmer place to come to in the winter.
Russia isn't a threat at all.
Russian never killed people here. All I heard was Allahu Akbar while killings were occurring.
You people who said Russia....put the kool-aid down and back away slowly lol lol lol
Why don't you guys head over to Manchester and tell them they really need to fear Russia.
Russia is not a threat but NATO keeps trying to provoke Russia. NATO really needs to stop.
Russia as seen has ability to change, isis sick MFs.
Yeah, second rate as in strategically inept, incapable of handling logistics properly, inferior equipment, unable to properly maintain the equipment they do have, and in comparison to the US almost no industrial base to back up their war machine.
Russia has one Soviet era aircraft carrier that is held together with duct tape and prayers, and I would wager few to zero amphibious landing ships. Again, Russia has no ability to project what military power it has beyond its immediate neighbors.
Russia couldn't land one soldier on one square inch of American soil, while American forces could deploy anywhere and anytime directly to Russian territory.
Let's see, a bunch of guys with small arms in junky old pickups, or a second rate military power with a decaying navy that can hardly deploy its military beyond its immediate neighbors.
When compared to the US military it's like asking if a puppy or a kitten is more dangerous.
Putin isn't a dictator
