I have started many discussions like this, with mixed results (with the exception of threads at mainly American forums, where they laugh at the idea of Russia competing with America).

I wanted to know how many people here regard Russia as a superpower, and would it ever stand a chance if it came into conflict with the US and the West.

Yes, if we wise up and change most of our officials (president not included, he is doing a good job) then I think we can. In fact, we are doing pretty well right now, save for many confusing beurocratical and criminal problems.

Well from what I can tell that seems to be the case. Russia is developing rapidly, both domestically and internationally.

Then I have noticed some pretty cold relations building between the US and Russia lately, particularly amidst warming Sino-Russian relations.


Btw: Haha, I drop by these forums quite often, only not as much in the Stalker section as I used to.

Well Russia is part of the 'BRIC' (Brazil, Russia, India, China) economic up and comers. Not sure about 'super power' though.

ps, wow, havent been on this off-topic for ages

You might want to add an 'S' to that. South Africa is also included in it.

The real big three are Russia, China and Brazil. These three are doing some interesting, albeit frightening things.

Funny, I always thought that you were the evil red dude himself. Now all we need is for Amoki to make a Room 101 reference...

Anyway, Russia is definitely a potential superpower. The transition in 1991 from evil Soviet Union to nice, happy Russia was a fairly big system shock but they're getting through it. And Russian culture (and Eastern-European culture in general) is beginning to become more widespread in the West.

Russia might not be a superpower now, but give them another 10 years or so and they'll be up there again. And good luck to them too!
