#1 So hypersonic missiles, new tanks and new APC's. Looks like Ma Russia is serious about defending themselves from outraged anti-vaxers.

#2 Putin's Russia is not Woke. For all their flaws and problems, the Russians believe in their civilization and are not apologizing or kneeling or flagellating themselves over their history.

They were weak and reeling for ten years, but the last decades have seen Russia's vitality and confidence return. Their population is steadily increasing, to the point where the Russian fertility rate now exceeds the white American rate (1.8 for RUS vs 1.6 for white USA).

Ours is a civilization in decline. We are decadent in every sense of the world.

Russia at a minimum has stabilized, and may, if Brandon's idiotic energy policies continue, see its fortunes and power rise apace in the next three years at least as the oil price approaches and surpasses $100/bbl.

#4  1.8 for RUS vs 1.6 for white USA).

1.8 is still below replacement. Russia’s population should not be increasing on the basis of that birthrate.

#6 Tw, RUS and USA are moving in opposite directions. The tend is not our friend.

Similar to Russia in the decade after the end of the USSR, deaths of despair are now soaring in the US. American longevity especially for working class whites is deckining.

More and more white Americans don't want to marry. College educated white American women increasingly don't want to bear or raise children.

Bless you and your family, but you and we are trying desperately to row against a powerful current in this country.

Russia survived despair and nihilism and us now starting to come back and recover its pride and strength. (For their part, the Chinese remember the horrors of their own recent time of troubles and are resisting the madness of America's Woke cultural revolution.)

The point is that ours is now unmistakably a sick and decadent culture. We have no right whatsoever to keep on bashing Russia. It's senseless and self-defeating.
