In a conventional war between the U.S. and Russia, the U.S. would trample on Russia’s army, but the competition is much more complex. This conflict is centered on states “in-between” NATO and Russia. Russia has repeatedly challenged America’s 25-year-old claim of being the only global superpower, and has unexpectedly emerged as the leading military rival. This competition will be an ongoing one for years to come, but there are some areas in which engagement is both necessary and desirable.
While the United States will likely rest some of their key players against Russia, the team’s performance could depend on a number of factors. The United States has not won a major tournament in 2016, and the team is ranked 25th in the world. In addition to resting their star players, the Americans will be testing new youth. Two players are 16 years old: Sophia Smith and Jaelin Howell. Each of these players has shown promise in the past, and they will be needed in this match against Russia.

Russians, on the other hand, are not particularly religious, but their history of religious diversity is fascinating. As a result, both countries are facing legitimate areas of cooperation. The following are some potential areas for cooperation.
