So, they have no memory of The Great Patriotic War and the misery inflicted on their country by it.

Sad.

just shows the ability of propaganda to galvanize a population sharing certain specific demographics and cultural fears. Just as Fox News and the rest of the right wing paranoia machine here in the USA spews anti-world venom, the Russian media under Putin freely spews vile paranoid vitriol aimed at keeping a population under control rather than informing valuable real world facts.

It is not the same. Russian TV is controlled by the Kremlin. US has alternatives to Fox.

We have thousands of ICBMs ready to go. Russia has the same. Nobody would win. It would be horrific. Its not a fucking basketball game with winners and losers.

It may not be the same but it is an apt comparison.

As an undergrad poli sci major, I was told the French had smartly put their nuclear warheads in locations where the prevailing winds would blow fallout back to Moscow in the event that they took a preliminary strike. I always loved that. I hope it’s true.

Paul Canning,

Thankfully I don’t think they’ll be a nuclear war between America and Russia anytime soon.

Russia has been authoritarian if not totalitarian for almost all of its history and was only slightly liberal recently for a short period of time. It wouldn’t be surprising to me if it turns out that most of what the common Russia knows about either of the two world wars, is propaganda designed to glorify the state. They may not realize just how brutal those wars were for them.

It’s less then 500 each nowadays, in terms of ICBMs, but the logic still holds. But its not Americans who need to get that fact, because not even Fox News promotes the idea that a war where both sides used nukes (as opposed to the US nuking a nation that could reply in kind) would be anything other than a disaster.
