Then it's like our history teacher told us once "beware of small countries" the ones that can kick off a war because they're bloody strategic territory.

  All you have to do is look at an Irish map and you can see what that means. We have all those weird place-names because back in the 19thC the Brits were afraid France would use us as a backdoor for invasion and made new maps for military purposes but since the English mapmakers couldn't speak Irish it resulted in weird mangled names like "Termonfecking" "Dingle" or "Bastardstown" etc.

I'm not advocating this dude, calm the fuck down. This is just a scenario from "The Next 100 Years," by George Friedman. Hell he even argues that the Union State/Eurasian Union will collapse only a few years after its formed.

I'm russian and I know that all of the independent countries which were formed after collapse of soviet union separated themselves from Russia just because they thought that it's going to be easy to develop by themselves as the capitalistic countries as fast as America develops. It was a naive idea, they all still depend on Russian economy. Russia is now 6th strongest economy in the world while other post soviet countries are somewhere on 50-70th places.
I think that the main thing is that ALL citizens of post-soviet countries SPEAK RUSSIAN like native speakers! More than that Russia was even much more BIGGER before the revolution than USSR. And most of the people in post-soviet countries think that they are russians and others just have a friendship relationships about Russia.
Eurasian Union is not actually the USSR, it's more like European union (but with eurasian rouble in future), but maybe it's possible to have a one person as a head of the onion!
Russians don't want to have a war with united states or china, we're not even the true communists any more (thank god). We are big because everyone wants to defeat us and loses their independence while losing a war, not because we love some wars.

Good insight, can't say I agree with all of it (especially the part about Russia having the world's 6th strongest economy, despite it actually being 11th, and the 6th being the UK).

And I'm more than aware that you guys took to Capitalism like Cancer to a Prostate, but I'm sorry to tell you that a Second Cold War is all but inevitable at this point. Putin will be elected (essentially coronated, no one stands a chance against him given his popularity), and begin moving Russian policy towards expanding and solidifying Russian influence and power in Europe. I don't have to tell you about the internal problems with Russia, but like most conflicts, it has nothing to do if one side or the other, "loves some wars," its out of necessity. And short of Russia joining NATO, or the US completely withdrawing from Europe (neither of which will happen), there isn't much capable of stopping events already set into motion. I'm genuinely sorry, I wish our two countries could simply learn to cooperate, but after 91' the West failed spectacularly at establishing a long term partnership with Russia, and frankly we haven't done anything to remedy that in time.

OH, you were counting from Purchasing Power Parity. I was looking at Nominal GDP which is based more on a country's economic activity as a whole. Yes, Russia, being the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas, as well as having vast timber, titanium, diamond, and other natural resources at its disposal, is obviously a major power in terms of where it has money to spend, and that is important, but from a stance of per capita GDP and gross economic activity, its still not quite in the superpower camp just yet. But then again, Russia has never had a top tier economy throughout its history, and its still managed to be a major player since the Napoleonic Wars.

The strange thing is, Russia is just as, if not more Capitalistic as the US and NATO. This is more of a nationalistic than ideological thing, now is it? How would we brainwash our children into hating Russians if they share the same ideological values as our conservative politicians and corporate masters? This thing would be a big confusing mess...

To paraphrase Phantom Limb, the Russians took to Capitalism like Cancer to a Prostate. Granted their oil industry is essentially nationalized, but it does have a greater deal of autonomy than many nations with such huge resources.

"How would we brainwash our children into hating Russians if they share the same ideological values as our conservative politicians and corporate masters?"

That's where it get's interesting, America is finally maturing as an Empire, and that means fighting countries that, while not ideologically that different, are still threats to American interests. Russia's dominance over the oil and natural gas supply to Europe threatens America's economy, and their desire to push their borders westward threatens our allies; those are the only reasons we need.

Not really, history only repeats itself when the fundamental issue has not been resolved. WWII was a repeat of WWI because the issue of Germany's relationship with the rest of Europe had not been resolved; the Cold war was in many ways a repeat of WWII because Russia's fundamental relationship with Europe hadn't been resolved, and the Second Cold War is over the same case.

Yes, but there was an ideological sense of thinking in late WW2 (certainly not the beginning) and the cold war, but I can't see one in the new cold war. Plus, in today's society Nationalism isn't enough of an excuse, people are going to ask "What are we really fighting for?" and even if they are told a lie, it better be at least slightly believable.

Is this part of that other map you did based on a senario in a book ?, it seems similar and I'm hoping it does not happen especialy since the end result is the total collapes of Russia nevermind all the problems caused by both sides before hand. The situation with Ukraine and Georgia needs to be resolved in a way that keeps everyone happy, aka the west, the nation in question and Russia as Russia does need to be respected when it comes to questions of its security although I do understand why Russia also needs to be put into its place someway (the way eastern european nations were controled its fractly disraceful to say the least)

Very true unforunately, in all honesty I don't know why Russia does not just join NATO it would solve some of the problems Russia has with the rest of europe when ti comes to defence and it could still keeps autonomy and independace by staying out of the EU, although I'm sure it would not be the simple fix my post makes it seem like

That's the problem, joining NATO to them is what creating a North American Union would be for the US. They just don't see the benefit without making themselves submissive to the United States.

I guess this would result in a huge militarization of all the now Anti-Russian former Warsaw Pact countries, not to mention Finland. Poland in particular would be aggressive and fearful at the same time, with Romania probably immensely pissed at seeing Russian presence return to Moldova (outside of Transnistria that is).

As you yourself pointed out, even if Russia did all of this, the Eurasian Union would still end up far weaker than the Soviet Union used to be. For two reasons: (a) The Eurasian Union would lack the USSR's alliances and influence in Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia. (b) The Eurasian Union's economy would be dependent on fossil fuels and therefore much more vulnerable than the USSR, whose economy was based on heavy industry.

So, no, this Eurasian Union could never be strong enough to pose a serious challenge to the US. Therefore this wouldn't be a second Cold War. To have a Cold War, you need the opposing sides to have roughly equal strength.

No they could, their energy hegemony over Europe would take most of Western Europe out of the game, but Poland, Hungary, the Czechs etc; they have long memories and would stand to oppose Russia with the US. With money coming in from their natural resources, they would fund a large military that would technologically rival the US (they aren't that far behind today believe it or not). They'd be a fragile challenger, but a challenger none the less.

They won't have much say in the matter. The Ukraine will most likely have a wide network of independent and American sponsored resistance groups, and you could expect the same in Georgia and the Caucasus; but Central Asia is so fragmented that its a amazing that they haven't been reconquered already.

I do not think under any circumstance they will come to annex Georgia; however, I think they may try to arrange for a circumstance where Georgia appears to be aggressive to Armenia and jointly with Armenia, they cede the territory to Armenia to maintain some semblance of political legitimacy abroad. I'm debating whether or not under that circumstance Serbia would expand to claim neighboring Serbian territories in former Yugoslavia, or simply recreate Yugoslavia by force altogether with Russian support.

Are you sure? The last thing Russia needs is an open border for the Chechnya to smuggle weapons supplied by the US through Georgia; which is also interest in joining the EU and possibly NATO, something Russia cannot allow.
