    What's the difference? Russia's oligarchs don't set foreign policy.

    I think they would if they thought they could get away with it. And the benefits to them outweighed the cost.

    And Russia would probably invade the US if they thought they could get away with it, too.

    This is just in the nature of governments.

    Oh huh, Armenia is allied with Russia? I thought they were trying to go NATO/EU, but I might be confusing them with Georgia then.

    Didn't they have a deal with Russia to carve up a piece of Georgia, or something?

    Ah right. Maybe not.

    Precisely. Conventional NATO superiority in precision warfare coupled with a ballistic missile defense (read: bye-bye Russian Strategic Rocket Forces) and potential rapid-deployment forces right next to the Russian border? What would Russia do if NATO did plan to invade? Such an unrestrained capacity to act for a country that might not be so friendly is scary to contemplate.

    You are.

    Armenia was a bit in the news last year for caving into the "demands" Ukraine opposed.
    I think Armenia might even be in that eurasian union.
    Georgia on the other hand had a minor revolution in 2004, but has been somewhat opposing Russia ever since the dissolution, I think.

    it'd be funny if one of the other camps saw Designers as Joni Ive on acid, the implication of course being that that's a massive insult.

    ... unfortunately too many iSheeple wouldn't get that.

    Currently serving as a project manager and developer for the same thing, I sometimes wonder whether I am being lazy in my capacity as project manager. I guess I'm more of a developer then.

    I wouldn't get it, because I've never heard about him/her/it.

    The map Cutlass posted is also clearly faulty when you look at the shia/sunni distribution in Iran and Iraq

    Catholic is only leading in so many U.S. counties when we count various Protestant denominations separately.

    But if we count all things together as "Protestant" then Cutlas's map seems accurate when it comes to the USA.
