In a conventional war, the U.S. would trample on Russia. But today’s wars are not fought toe-to-toe. Geographic and technological factors give one side an advantage over the other. In addition to its large number of aircraft carriers, the U.S. has superior air defense and a vastly superior ability to project power around the globe.
In a nuclear war, the two countries would have nuclear weapons and would have to destroy each other with them. This war could involve Europe as well. In Europe, many people don’t even understand what nuclear war would entail. A nuclear war between the two countries would engulf NATO members, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Finland, and many other nations.
Aside from nuclear wars, there are several other areas where the U.S. can play a vital role. For example, the Baltic States are some of our newest NATO partners. However, Russia has already threatened the Baltic countries. It has sent military aircraft into Baltic airspace on multiple occasions. In addition, it has deployed submarines in the Baltic Sea. It also supports Russian-speaking minorities in the Baltics. As a result, some analysts see Estonia as particularly vulnerable to Russian aggression.
