Fake thought.

The United States does not want a war with Russia, bad for business. We did not come to blows during the Cold War, when it was The Free World (TM) vs. The Godless Commies. And we will not over whatever the supposed beef is, the Ukraine, the Baltics, our “moderate jihadis,” whatever.

Our belligerence is little more than a sales pitch for costly, unneeded weapons systems.
