Ok i have been thinking about this and would like to put down my thoughts on the situation. If you disagree fair comment but this is for discusion not for hurling abuse at each other.
I think that Russia will get Iran and north Korea on their side to fight the Americans. China will in my personal opinion remain neutral.
It is assummed USA will have all the typical allies. But i live in the U.K and if a war is started within the next few months, i think there is a chance the u.k will not get invloved.
My reasoning is, at the moment we have our prime minister Gordan Brown, who is taking some real stick from the u.k public, parliment pretty much everyone. And at the moment it is pretty much inevitable that he wil not be re elected. And he knows this, he has even resorted to calling members of the public and asking them what he can do to become a better prime minister. He knows he messed up big time and is willing to do whatever to stay in power.
So where im going with this is, if the U.K get called to war by the US the one thing that will help Gordan Brown stay in power and win over the public majoirty is by saying no to the US.
Most people in the UK are not afraid of Iraq or Afghanistan because they pose no hgue threat to our public they have no nukes, planes that can reach the uke.t.c Whereas russia pose a huge threat we are within range of all thier missles nukes e.t.c.
By gordan brown saying no to the US. He will win so much public support and win over the people who doubted him as a leader.
Im not sure about other countires but lets assume they participate in the war.
What i think will happen is eventually is USA will really be dominating the war with allies e.t.c. So Russia will opt to lauch nukes. And the US will retaliate
This will destroy both countries especially economically for all the money they have to spend restoring the country. And i beleive US will be the first to give up. Due to the fact they have more to lose. From observing political leaders of the countires e.t.c. I think Russian leaders care less about the population than the US.(Except for any area that is populated by african americans)
So the war will end and becuase of the damage and finacial cost on both sides. Both countries will incur heavy debts and lose much of thier superpower status and China will be officially regognised as the next superpower of the world not the US or Russia.
And China will take advantage of this to expand even furthur and officially take the role of what the US has been holding as :the superpower of the world.
: Im not chinese, and have created this post with no bias towards eithier us or russia, this is what i truly beleive will happen if both countries go to war.

china isn't ready to be a superpower yet, for numerous reasons. it still has a lot of economic and political maturing to go.
i can't imagine what cold-war era generals from both the US and russia would do in their paranoid and trigger happy states should the two go to war.Daily Electronic Music Enlightenment Thread - Come on Down to the Underground

When Russia start gettin beaten heavily they will decide o.k we have nothing to lose lets get the nukes and ready and even if one or two of the many stockpiles of nukes they have lands on US will mean big problems for the USA.

What will happen if Russia and U.S. go to war?
The U.S. will move into Georgia and reestablish the borders. The U.S. will then sue for a white peace because we aren't dumb enough to wage a full out campaign against Russia (attrition hell). Russia will accept the white peace (i.e.-back to status quo before the fighting started) because they're not dumb enough to make themselves an outcast and go into a full war over Georgia.

The insurgency began a few months after U.S.-led forces drove the Taliban out of the Afghan capital, Kabul, in November 2001. It became more effective two years ago, when insurgents switched to new tactics, including breaking up into small groups of 10 fighters or less, attacking "soft" civilian targets and limiting head-on confrontations with coalition and Afghan troops.
they will never beat us

You're correct. If you guys remember the initial invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq by the U.S.A. were over very quickly. We absolutely steam rolled them. Where America begins to "lose" is when we begin to "police" the nation and attempt to force democracy down their throats. We are not good at nation rebuilding/occupying. Russia learned its lesson in Afghanistan and now seems to fight fire with fire and fuq the rebuilding/occupying process.Wise is the bird of prey which does not show its talons.

First off a war against Russia will be largely depend on Europe. If Europe says we are not dieing for America than there's no way to take Russia. If Europe won't help (which they won't more than likely unless they initially start it), then Americans would have to ask how many millions of Americans must be sacrificed?

Remember how america won its status as a country? by fighting the recoats in unconventional ways.
America is trying to be the worlds police, and doesnt have enough support to do so. If we didnt have so many people in iraq/afghanistan, it would be more feasible to war with russia, and on the idea of a draft, it would get people into the military system but theyd still need the training to be able to fight. Otherwise it would be a massacre.

Anyway, there will be no winner. Even if by some miracle every Russian or US nuke malfunctions the damage done to the environment would screw up the planet for decades. Imagine hundreds of cities being converted into dust and ashes. There was a study done last year that said that even a minor exchange would be enough to cause crop failures around the world for years. A major exchange would make the northern hemisphere uninhabitible.
During the Cold War much effort was put into predicting the outcome of an armed conflict between the superpowers. Western experts predicted a Soviet attack that would likely break NATO defences. At that point NATO would use tactical nukes against Soviet ground forces. The Soviets would respond by nuking NATO bases taking out a few cities in the process. At that point there would be a massive exchange and the war would be over. I expect the same thing would happen in a Russo-American war but with the roles reversed because American conventional forces are stronger.

in war, there are no set rules to follow and what weapons you can or can not use (okay, i could be wrong, for all i know Russia could of signed an agreement to not use nukes, i dont know).
if you are on your backfoot, unleash a deadly attack to gain breathing room and heavily depleat your opponents.
no matter how good the USA THINKS their military is, their military, or country, is no match for a couple nuclear bombs dropped.Richoss' Training Journal

Russia and the United States will never go to war over Georgia. Russia will eventually remove its' forces from greater Georgia, not from the disputed areas, unfortunately. Russia will continue to pass out passports to "Russians" in former satellite states, most notably in the Baltic. Just look at the map. Russian intervention in Georgia has nothing to do with protecting "Russian citizens," but everything to do with threatening its' former possessions. There is nothing new under the sun. What we are seeing is ballance of power, international politics. Europe should do all that it can to minimize its' dependence on petroleum from Russia. Ukraine? They should seriously analyze their present situation. Putin, as long as he is in power, will continue the pressure. One might keep their eyes on "cyber-warfare" against Ukraine in the future. The attacks against Georgia via the net began weeks before any Russian intervention on the ground.paolo59
