  •  Sorry if you don't know that chickenhawk (0+ / 0-)

    refers to people like Bush, Cheney and the neo-cons who AVOIDED SERVICE themselves but who are eager to send other people's kids to war for glorious "moral causes" (or to steal resources take your pick).  That's why they are called CHICKEN (they didn't serve and neither do their kids) HAWKS.  

    What I'm saying is that the Russians would fight.  This is on their border.  Their people will be far more committed to this fight than we would be and they have shown in the past a remarkable ability to take casualties.   The Bush thing about let's invade Iraq but please keep shopping is not how they approach war.

      be the Russian soldiers.

      So, if you're talking about Russians dying for their country, that's who you're talking about and the equivalent is American soldiers.

      If you wish to mix apples and oranges, a little fruit cocktail warning would be nice.
