Nations will take very high casualities if they are fighting for an important issue. In the case of the Second World War, Russians either had to fight or be detroyed by a nation that left little doubt what there fate would be under German control.
The nations?? Now, the nations do not exist and have no protection. After that case.

We will be fair.
So you basically believe that big country has a right to attack small country if it is good for the big country?
