Have you been paying attention the last 8 months in Ukraine? A rag tag assortment of Ukrainians who are getting new weapons and learning how to use them on the fly have beaten the vaunted Red army soundly. They sunk their flag ship. They have killed multiple generals. Captured untold equipment. The Russian soldiers are mostly drunken oafs who have no interest in fighting and no training to be effective soldiers. All of the fear mongering of the big bad Red Army that has been promulgated since the 1950s to support increasing defense spending, the bomber gap, the missile gap, the tank gap, the hyper sonic missile gap etc etc etc has been so much empty, misleading and fallacious propaganda. The US spends 12 X as much on defense as the Russians. The Russian military is inept, hollow and no threat on any way to the US. Maybe those ships are getting close to US so they can land, defect, get asylum before they are resigned as foot soldiers in Ukraine.

So it's a positive thing that Russia and China are bold enough to do joint naval training just off the Alaskan coast?

Except the Russians have nuclear weapons and lunatic leadership. Other than that, they are harmless.

Looks like we are in decline.

Bad culture, GDP in tank, two standards of justice.....idiots who think you can possibly attribute one hurricane seasons output to climate change.
