    Well, maybe not that noble, but USSR won 2 years of preparations, for you know, it was still very weak those days. Most of it's military powers were gained during ww2, not before it, only because everything was thrown into building war staff. They say Stalin pretended nazi aggression towards USSR was still unexpected, but this is just the cover.
    It sux that Poland was put between two fires 2 years earlier, but who knows, it could have been even worse if ww2 came to Russia 2 years earlier - should they have reached Moscow, the world may have had no time. Not only the biggest nazi-fighting forces of Russia could have been defeated, but it may have even be too late to invent and throw atomic bombs from USA. I'm afaid Poland events were more tactical then strategical

    Ultimately, the human component is also important, and on both sides of the equation, all that high tech is being used by a bunch of dumbass high school dropouts.

    Actually a GED or a High school diploma is required to enlist in the United States Army. Not only that, but our officer corps are required to have a BA to be an officer and the majority of our senor NCO's have either a BA or a Masters (promotions amongst senor NCO's is incredibly tough)

    Even if you were right, our bunch of High school drop outs still outclass and outperform any other military force in the world, what does that say about your third rate country's military?

    Why is the US allowed to send warships but the Russians are not? Hypocrit much?
    Yes, it's dangerous and in the worst case scenario it could lead to a new conflict between the US and Russia. But don't blame Russia, blame both parties.

    Amphibious warships are designed for and train for evacuating people, civilian ships will just make it a headache. We did the same thing a few years ago when Israel bombed Lebanon.
