Why would they invade? They are more likely to nuke us out of existence than invade.
Anyway, we have oceans on either side of us which protect us from any invasion. Plus, it is a pretty big country. On the other hand, there are a lot A LOT of Polak fifth columnists here. Dumb Polaks, but it doesn't take a whole lot upstairs to point & shoot a gun! OK 90% would probably shoot themselves in the foot, but still!

Yes I do realize this. I truly wish that things would change for the better in an opposite fashion from what the United States has historically and traditionally done, but those in charge are too psychopathic I suppose to do that. When all is said and done though, I was born and raised in the US so I guess I have no choice but to deal with how it is here since most people won't stand up for their rights either.

There are several reasons for invasion, such as taking natural resources or simply to conquer land. I think that too many people in the US underestimate the power of other nations and end up getting hurt. Look at what happened in the Vietnam War.

Georgia is going to help Russia when its budget gets into difficulties. hahahahaha
Do not worry about that, as Georgian taxpayer I can assure you that Georgian budget is not dependent on Gas prices or government monopoly.
As for Russian budget, you will see the effects of sanctions and loss of Gas revenues very soon. Then we will see how Putin will finance his invasions and puppet regimes.

LOL. I have actually never meant a Russian man, I was just being sarcastic about how some of the polls that are putting down Russians are pretty stupid. And what the heck is a Chimper? I have no idea what that is....define it for me please.

Thank you Dimitri. Some of these people on here just don't realize that they just make themselves look immature when trying to put other countries and cultures down by making ridiculous poll questions.

You're welcome AW22.

You're right on the points you make, please understand that, in my opinion there are a lot of good, decent, honest Americans.

The only people I disagree with, are such people like those to whom you refer and USA's foreign policy.

I don't Understand the fear factor or controversy of it all. Russia invading USA? The world had a flood; people were estranged and exiled from family groups when the nations were being rebuilt, TO THIS DAY we are STILL looking for those DNA links and testing middle earth and surface soil for DNA matches. RUssia a bunch of taller white men invading USA that have a verticle posture and ask the woman to be a woman and takes her pie to the local fair for a chance of $500,000 win on it or her quilt. HUM I think I would be afraid to be with such a man, someone that tells me to wash before cooking or intercourse, and we cant have intercourse for play it must be for procreation with comprehension as to why it is a volitle necessity of comprehending human life before creating human life, A man to teach me how to be a HUMAN BEING not just a wife, OH GOD IS RUSSIA INVADING or intervening YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK. A MAN that says that treasure is not safe the men must weed thru it first 100 men go in for your treasure find and the monster ate 98 but out of some freak of nature that one of the two happens to be your RUssian husband that taught you how to pray to keep him safe during his journeys. NO AMERICA could not benefit from Russian assistance. And they were not Russians, They were a bunch of people like any other nation trying to pick up after a storm fighting sea sickness, mental delusions, Multiple Sclerosis A bug found in the feces of a Seahorse Sear urchin found in a underground chamber in the middle of the sea(cousin to a sea monkey). Lost and estranged form their nations and families like everyone else. Hell of a disaster back in history.

And you people as Americans I hated this as a child living in USA and I am grass roots American, family Transported to calm flora and fauna and Nature and Time, as a result my families BLOOD matched the very soil components of middle Earth Wisconsin USA. YOU DON't Know who you are refuse a RED CROSS DNA test to your parents, refuse to sue your parents in court to mandate paternity tests, refuse to live with real family as they may not like you and don't want to take the chance and when your real family dies before you YOU YOU YOU Are up on MURDER CHARGES for not finding your real family and protecting them as a human being and went of a Alias life and name instead. RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ANY NATIONS MILITARY would have you on consentration camps deported all your family in one big warming tent and if you fight Your not going to live. It is not worthy for anyone to marry yoru family no financial gain as a unity no interest no publicity no matrimony desires as all families want to unify and marry into a well established family that co-exisits and assists so employment is parttime for all and we co-share our harvest and designs and clothes are made by whoever can put a pattern together. More gifts, more money asisstence and travel by protection of bulk. Who teaches those matrimonial or human ethics, RUssians trying to find their DNA links and being important to them.

That's just it. It's impossible to boost the morale of an army, and instill confidence, when they know they've been duped into murdering innocent people under false pretenses. just so blood thirsty bankers and corrupt government can rake in the $$$. What really amazes me, is how our governments treat these men and woman when they do come home...like dirt!

Our governments should be held accountable for their crimes, and one day, it's going to happen!

I have to admit that your posting had me rather lost because I don't know what DNA and floods had to do with what I was saying. My point is that any nation, not just Russia, could actually invade the US if they wanted to. Heck for all I know China might do just that....in a way they already have since we borrow money from them all the time. The final point that I was making also is that too many people in the US think that we are untouchable while in reality we are just as vulnerable as anyone else on the globe.
