Russia is still our long term greatest enemy

In my recent post on foreign relations, I identified Russia as being our (the US) greatest long term enemy.

If anyone doubts that, they should read this article titled "U.S. Navy Intercepts Russian Bombers Flying Near Ships"

This is scary. Apparently, "one Russian Tupolev 95 buzzed the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz twice, at a low altitude of about 2,000 feet, while another bomber circled about 50 nautical miles out."

Good call. What is really scary is that Russia will be Islamic within a decade or two (given current trends) and they still have lots o' nukes.

re: "Good call."

I wish I was wrong. This combined with their friendliness to states like Iran makes life very scary.

The only solace is that I've read the last chapter of the book and I know who wins :)
