Well in debate class I have to debate on the question in the title. The only problem is that I have to be on the negative side. What that means is I have to say Russia isn't a threat. I've been looking at stuff for a long time and I am really stumped. Everything I find says Russia is a potential threat. Can anyone help me out on what points I can debate saying Russia isn't a threat to the U.S.? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well your first clue is "potential" Everybody can be a potential threat. Especially those damn Brits.

Lol remember when they said Iraq was a threat with all those invisible nuclear warheads?


America is jealous of another superpower country so they look for excuses to take it down eg saying it is a threat when that is a lie.

you're gonna lose bro, all other civilized nations are a threat to us these days.
our "war" isnt making the world happy. we're ham fisted in our attacks. we're run by corrupt and depraved individuals. and best of all, we're broke!

anyone with a few thousand men, and enough guns and ammo, could very easily take us over.
the only thing in they're way as it is, is a few fat middle aged men (aka the national guard.) and of course, gun nuts.

but of course, gun nuts would form small militias, doing as much, or more damage than our invaders would. they would burn, pillage, rape, and kill anything in they're way. large organizations would fall apart. and even the most well prepaired, and well stocked household would end up falling to the civil war that would be, by now, im full swing.

the best bet at this stage is to pack up your families and girlfriends and guitars, and head for england, or canada, or australia.

i cant pick which way ill head when i get the funds.

eh? so what. maybe i am serious, maybe im not.
what i do know is that, honestly. gun nuts wouldnt help many people out. trust me, i know a lot of them. they'd be too paranoid and delusional themselves to help someone out. everything is either a trap or some kind of way to ruin they're lives.

so, ridicule me. please, be my guest.

well considering that both the us and russia have massive amounts of nuclear weapons, i would say that would be a pretty big deterrent for both nations to engage in full blown war.

I was under the impression that Russia had a lot more firepower than the US. Maybe older and less advanced nuclear weaponry, but still a lot more. Though I can't find any reliable sources on it...

sounds like fun. Yeah I think I'm going to look into the Russian economy or something and try to say they are currently to weak to be a threat. I have no idea where I'm heading with this.

As far as I know the relations between Russia and the USA are better now than in the Cold War days of the 80s and nothing happened back then so not really.

To be fair Russia are pretty pathetic atm... a bit like Germany after WW1... then again, we all saw what happens when you kick a nation while it's down.

well Iraq wasn't much of a superpower country even before we invaded it now was it?

honestly i don't think any lone country could stand against the U.S. despite the fact that we're broke, we still have more than enough weapons to send this entire planet back to oblivion and then some.

Probably still falling, things are getting better in some places but they're still pretty ****ty in others.

that still doesn't mean the U.S. can't annihilate them...."spend while in debt", believe it or not it's an economic ideology (can't remember the name unfortunately), not one i agree with, but one the U.S. has been following for quite sometime.

Russia's on the rise I reckon, along with China, the US of A is going to take a long plunge down from being a superpower.

No but it sure as hell was filled with lots of oil contracts.......


Right now, no but I think americas stand point as a superpower has reached a turning point.If the country cant pull itself out of its current economic slowdown I think things could change in the next ten years.
