    The USA couldn't survive the war in Vietnam, how can they possibly even be considered a realistic opponent for Russia? Especially since China have Russia's back.
    need a say more.

    :facepalm:

    Because going to war with Russia would be a ground invasion of a country dominated by jungle..

    USA vs Russia would be thought with aircraft and missiles, both of which the USA is stronger in than anyone in the world.

    The combined efforts of China and Russia would deem the USA to be powerless.

    Who says they do care about civilian casualties? :confused: Drone attacks killing innocent people? and plus bombing the whole country won't kill the Taliban but i understand what you're trying to say dw
    Civilians die in all wars, if you try your best to stop it or not.

    There rules of engagement mean if they end up in a firefight in an urban area they will most likely withdraw rather than call in air support to flatten the entire area..

    In a non nuclear war? No

    The US Navy is a monster and US military spending outstrips China + Russia combined. Nice way to change the question btw.

    Without a doubt, USA and Russia are the most powerful countries on the planet, and we would never want to seem them go into a war against each other, never.

    -Both of these countries own around 90% of the worlds nuclear weapons, with Russia having about 10k (52%) and USA about 8k. Not sure if these statistics are correct or not tho, (just read about it)

    - Both of these countries can blow up the planet over 300 times.. (roughly)

    - USA have modern technology, and are more developed with potentially more troops

    - Russia are more experienced when it comes to wars. (everyone is disagreeing with this. Soviet Union contained most of the Russians, who were involved in WW2 and in Afghanistan)

    Without allies, or any nuclear weapons (of course) who would win?
    Of course Russia, US anti-air warfare sucks because Russia has SS-27

    You forgot the UK as well. I am well aware of soviet conflicts and the different proxy wars fought by the west, I've studied them. What I'm saying is Russia isn't invincible as the other poster was trying to say. The USA has lost in vietnam (which the viet cong was aided by China and the USSR) and the USSR/ Russia has lost to the Mujahideen in Afghanistan, which was backed by various western and Middle Eastern countries.

    And the North Vietnamese were supported by the Soviet Union and China..

    Regardless, I don't think those types of warfare are particularly relevant. I'd hedge my bets on the USA without a doubt.

    Neither. They would end up destroying each other with the rest of the world.

    NO COUNTRY HAS EVER, EVER, EVER INVADED AFGHANISTAN.

    + Soviets lost about 20k of it forces, Muhajadees lost about 90k of their forces.

    That is a brilliant list, not one sided at all and has lots of evidence to back it up.
