ake a look at Chaturbate at the young russians.. they are extremely impressive.
Sounds like you have a crush.
Russia is one of the few countries that the USA has never had a war against. Russia was only our enemy during their period of COMMUNISM when they were the USSR. The USSR dissolved in roughly 1992 and so did communism in Russia. The left can't stop fanning the flames by attacking Russia.
It's not just the left. Since most of the people in the government were alive during the Cold War, they've carried over the animosity and mistrust we were taught into the present day. You're right though, they'd made a great allie. Too bad we keep putting missile defense systems near their boarders....
