"We have thousands of US servicemembers still in Afghanistan, and more in Iraq. US special operations forces are engaged in countries around the world. But that's not the question.

Are we at war with Russia?

It's complicated. We do not currently have uniformed US troops in contact with uniformed Russian troops. Neither country has formally declared war against the other. There is little, according to the traditional metrics by which we define "war," to suggest that we are. And yet, what if those metrics are outdated?

That was one of the many questionsóboth fascinating and troublingóthat participants grappled with during MWI's War Studies Conference last month. In its third year, the conference has become a feature at West Point, bringing together distinguished representatives from the private sector, government, academia, the think-tank community, and the joint military services to debate and discuss issues related to modern war. The theme of this most recent conference was potential disruptors of the "American way of war."…."

Nyet, unless you mean cyber war, and info wars, the latter false stories and rumors of which some are swallowing whole hog, and creating internal turmoil and havoc in the government, thus playing right into the hands of the Russkies, as planned by them, comrade.

We are at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

If the USA is at war with you… you will know it!

No, but we're not completely at peace with Russia either. The POTUS is willing to establish a new detente with Moscow, but his hands are tied.

But you are doing everything to make their life difficult.
They have (including the vast un- bureaucratified economy) maybe 1/2 or more the GDP of France, what in real can they do to the USA except not follow orders and want to keep away from $ empire ( including the preposterous putting foreigners, abroad, doing biz in $ , under US jurisdiction, unique in history)?
And they got mostly vaccined from marxist poison. Another big pain for your media and "elites"( so still with red plumes?).
They have a saying: " all the evil comes from the west"
