Nah, we'll all end up dead anyway, it's just a matter of how and when, live for now, not for later... Cheesy

Nothing new about that, compared to Russia in terms of manpower and firepower we have been a long way behind for many years, however it's more about our contribution to NATO that counts, providing the agreement holds in that any NATO country attacked by Russia then NATO would respond with it's access to Manpower and weapons far higher than anything Russia can or would be able to muster.

So no I doubt we have much to worry about, well at least not in my lifetime

To be honest I don't really see Russia as much of a threat anyway. If they wanted a war / invasion they could have done so a long time ago.

Russia went into crimea because the locals asked for it. Nobody was killed, Ukranian troops were just escorted out of the way.

Yes Russia has been probing our air space for some while, I expect we've done the same when we had our airborne radar planes. The USA is always at it too. It's just one of those things that countries do to assess the threat of other countries.

Russia has had the man power for a long tme. Look at the serbian war, our troops were going in and then met by a russian task force blocking their way. Did war follow? No.

Russia does indeed have the means but they have neighbouring countries they could easily invade first if they wanted to. It's not happened yet though has it. Although I do agree that we need to stop the military cuts (and that includes sending good ships to scrap) I don't think the ruskies are going to invade us. 

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
