In all honesty, this is one reason that despite the untold gazillions spent on US battle groups and what is certainly the most commanding military position in history, nobody is actually afraid of the US - if you are a reasonable-class adversary, playing America is just so bloody easy now.

Remember the good old days when Democrats mocked Mitt Romney for saying Russia was still our number one enemy? THe only reliable thing in US politics is that the liberals will fill the role of useful idiot to perfection. Oh, and, DEATH TO AMERICA!

They were - mostly - right. While no one would be surprised if Russia decided enough is enough with this monumental stupidity that is the "Russian interference" bullshit that's swallowed US public discourse, for quite some time Russia was ambivalent about the US. On one hand, all those neo-liberal US advisers that swooped in after the fall of the Soviet Union and basically devastated what little was left could reasonably be if not an act of war then at least certainly an act of state-sponsored economic terrorism. And the Clinton decided to bomb pretty much the only remaining Russian allies, the Serbs, to suck up to Muzzies in general and Saudi Arabia in particular. And then came the disastrous moves when the Russians cleaned out what was very clearly their designated and official backyard in the Caucasus and the US went all outrage boycott despite the clear and unambiguous Kosovo precedence. On the other, the sheer volume of the US activities on the world stage and the way the US wandered from spectacular failure to spectacular failure - Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Syria - made it difficult to decide if the Neocon US deep state had it in for Russia in particular or if it was just a part in the greater pattern of ineptitude, delusion and stupidity fueled by graft and greed. Till last year, I would have thought that Russia came in after a bunch of others in the adversary department - China, Iran, Mexico, the Norks at least, and frankly the vast majority of the Islamic world too. But now... who could blame them if they decided that fuck it, let's show these clowns what real, pointed animosity looks like.

Consider the source here - as a Swede, the very last natural sympathy in the world I have is for Russia. I don't particularly like them. I certainly don't trust them as far as a quadriplegic can spit. Still, fairness requires me to admit that if they are, again, US public enemy #1, that would be entirely the US doing. Or the US Deep State's doing, at any rate, but outsiders don't get the luxury of making distinctions based on that knowledge.
