My brother (retired Colonel) has said that Russia would definitely give us a good bloody nose and maybe a broken jaw to start, but that we'd ultimately end up winning. We would get our shit together real fast. Our pilots are still better trained. Our Navy still better trained. Our Special Forces, etc also showed Russia what they'd be up against when we annihilated a Russian trained militia in Syria a couple of years ago.
Russian Spetnaz are bad dudes, but no better than our Seals, Delta's, Air Force Spec and Marine Spec guys. Hell, there is a strong belief our Rangers and Green Berrets are more than enough for them. Polish Grom want in on anything we do that counters those guys and they are salty as fuck.
Still, they would hit us as hard as they could to start. Air Superiority is the name of the game against the Russians. Get it and they are done.
Germans were much better trained than the Russians. Stalin had purged his experienced officers. Germans were fresh from beating that ass in France and had millions of soldiers poised to drive deep into Russia. Guess how it ended up?
If anyone thinks this HR Dept we have running shit today is even remotely as skilled as the German High Command in WW2, they are full of shit. Bad leadership is as American as apple pie. Even take the Gulf War for example, The original plan was an actual landing in the teeth of the Iraqis. Schwarzkopf had to be pushed into developing the "left hook", or was it right? For whatever reason our military system really breeds political ass kissers and it's unfortunate. Gets a lot of men killed.
Could you imagine Biden sitting up reviewing the troops and giving a speech as the troops marched by on their way to fight the deadliest enemy hell bent on the extermination of Americans? That's exactly what Stalin of all people did during the battle of Moscow. That's the level of resolve we're talking when fighting a major power. It aint Iraq 3.0.
