I think it would be ironic if the Rooskies got the jump on us and nuked us into oblivion but then we turned into giant mutated zombies impervious to their puny weaponry and stomped them underneath our massively sized feet.

That would be a TBD. The Chinese and their equipment have never been proven in battle, while Russian equipment has even though it has faired poorly when matched against us. Of course, our military men, equipment, tactics and logistics get worked out continuously in battle and live fire situations continously.
This is not correct, Chinese hardware has given the Indians plenty to grovel about via Pakistan.

And yet, the Federal Government can't make any of their programs come in on time or on budget. Wouldn't be nice if they could slice the deficit in half like that dime? Or let us perform our original mundane healthcare tasks?
And where is that tracking ability when our nation's sovereignty is undermined by an invading force of illegal aliens? Government says they can't keep them out. Why not?

As a nation we need to take care of our own problems and keep our noses out of the Crimea!

The stupidest thing about the US budget is the fact that we put such a ridicilous amount of money into the military while we don't spend more on diplomacy. Our foreign policy is crap, it just makes the world hate us and makes us look like goddamn hypocrites. It's disgusting how ignorant most American's are when it comes to US foreign policy or even a basic understanding of history. The world doesn't hate America because of the freedoms here and democracy, that's goddamn hogwash. We have done some terrible things around the world to get that hate. No country has it's hand clean but we should drop this holier than thou bullcrap.

Doesn't seem to be working so well in Ukraine anymore than its did in Chamberlain"s day. So you feel hated. Perhaps you need t get out in the world where there is real hate more. US Military has always given free trips to such places.

Yeah? What sort of diplomacy did we do other than make some empty threats? Also the latter part of your post is just typical melodramatic nonsense.
