Russia’s new weapons, nuclear parity and arms race: What’s going on?
Impressive array of weapons. WWIII is still not winnable, but devastation can be guaranteed by both sides.

Russian ships near U.S. undersea cables spark concern
Snip. Snip. Snip.
U.S. and Western officials are increasingly troubled by their rival's interest in the 400 fiber-optic cables that carry most of the world's calls, emails, and texts as well as $10 trillion worth of daily financial transactions.

Will U.S. action in Syria lead to conflict with Russia?
This guy claims that not only does Russia command missile technology every bit as good as that of the USA, but in some cases probably superior. In that case, they could easily take out a few battleships and maybe an aircraft carrier or two. My fear in 2016 was that Clinton would be elected and we'd be in this type of situation. I truly thought that Trump was capable of avoiding this kind of situation, but he's maneuvered us right into this crisis. It's hard to see how Clinton could have done any worse, although perhaps she would have got us here faster. In any case, this conflict was completely avoidable and it was only a result of incompetent leadership that we're where we are today. Trump does not deserve all the blame since there's been plenty of obstruction and undermining going on from both republicans and democrats, but he's the president and he should have been capable of being a stronger and more competent leader.

ergot: I think the USA and Russia will do what it takes to avoid WWIII, but it's hard to say how events will unfold. A small mistake could send the whole situation spiraling out of control and put the world as we know it in jeopardy. I hear what you're saying about Clinton and Trump. I too thought Trump would do better than this. I had no illusions, however. I knew he was an incompetent buffoon, but I at least thought he wasn't as big a moron as Clinton, but this little jam is causing me to have my doubts about even that.

Do democrats still think Trump is colluding with the Russians? I think not. Seems like Trump is taking advantage of that and the fact that people perceive him as a crazy orange haired lunatic in order to gain advantage. He has demonstrated this in the election and always managed to turn it around somehow. The term crazy like a fox comes to mind though there's a good chance I could be totally wrong and we are all going to die!

Wow. Was I ever wrong about Trump! I am ashamed for having voted for him.

Sorry!
