Usa Vs Russia
A war between the USA and Russia would be catastrophic, experts say. Hundreds of millions of lives would be lost.
Despite its vast military superiority, the USA would lose this fight in just a few days.
The US spends about 10 times more money on its national defense than Russia.
It also has a far more powerful arsenal of weapons, including nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missiles and long-range strike aircraft.
But a toe-to-toe conventional military battle, especially one that lasts for years, would be a different story.
If the US and Russia launched nuclear strikes at each other, they could devastate the earth.
That could kill up to five billion people, according to a recent study by a group of experts.
During the Cold War, America and Russia fought against each other for decades.
Now, the United States and its NATO allies are facing Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.
There’s little doubt that Russia has been using the Ukrainian conflict to advance its own ambitions and reassert control over Eastern Europe.
Putin’s aggressive behavior in the Baltic region, where Moscow has menaced Estonia and Finland with military strikes and support for Russian-speaking minorities, raises the prospect of a larger Russia-NATO confrontation.
The United States and its European allies are trying to decide what kind of military response is best in such a situation. Among other things, that debate has led to the question of whether this type of hybrid warfare can be addressed by military means.
