      The problem is that the United States is following them instead of finding creative and strategic ways of doing things differently and even hopefully more effectively.

      Having the US bogged down in another Middle Eastern/Central Asian quagmire actually helps Russian prospects.

      They can't compete with us when we are strong, but when we are weakened by being over extended by war, the Russians really do have a better shot at eclipsing us.  China operates in a much less heavy-handed manner, but don't think for a second that they would have all kinds of reasons to see a less powerful America.
