Nobody likes Americans. "I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit.... it's the only way to be sure."

Russia is still our enemy. They just know that they can't beat us on their own, that's why they team up with China on things like opposing Bush's missile defense program.

HELL YES they still are our enemy!!! WTF are people thinking? As long as they are suppling communist and other anti-American countries with weapons and training, THEY ARE OUR ENEMY!!!!!!!

russia is our ALLY, therefore NOT our enemy. BUT, i would keep an eye on them, their "balance of power" maneuvering is highly suspect at times.

In my simple mind, this is how i figure it: we (the USA)and them(the USSR/CIS/Russia or whatever they decide to call themselves) were pointing guns at each other, waiting for each other to shoot, undermining each others policies, etc. Basically, each wanting to kill the other for almost 50 years. Then, one day, they decide to become our best buddy. I don't think so. [heavy]

I don't like calling people names. But are these people voting, they are our friends, retards? The failure of the Soviet Union wasn't because they wanted to be friendly. [spank]

I miss the cold war. There was never any doubt as to who the bad guys were. We had good slogans too. Remember "Kill a commie for Mommy?" I love that one.

Actually- we in the U.S. owe the Soviets alot seeing as they did most of the fightin' and dyin' in WW2. We'd all probably be driving Volkswagens instead of SUVs if the Soviets hadn't kicked the German's butts. They lost 10 million dead and 15 million wounded destroying the Wehrmacht. If not for them the Germans would have won WW2. As far as today, with anticommunism gone as a "cause" the rich people who run things will have to find some other way to create mischief across the world to keep that ol' military-industrial ball rolling. The Soviets were never really our enemies, they just wanted an equivalent to our Monroe Doctrine in Europe so they wouldn't be invaded every 20 years. We were at least as much a cause of the Cold War as they were.

Rent the Brendan Fraser movie "Blast from the Past". The scene at the end where he is explaining to his dad (played by Christopher Walken) about the end of the cold war is hysterical. I think he's right on about it, too.
