Well, maybe they should make up a new enemy. AA 3.0 is supposed to have a new fictional enemy. One more suitable to the US Army. Speaking of AA, I got my star!
The military does seem to be slowly shifting back to the Russians and that area. Russia is pissed at us at the moment. We went in to calm down Kosovo, and when Kosovo declared independence, they pissed Russia off even more. And the US is in the middle of all of this. No I don't think it's the US's job to protect them, we have kind of been getting screwed a lot lately.
I joined the National Guard here about a month ago, and one of the biggest units getting sent that way is my unit, the 129th FA. But yes, kind of scaring me, I joined the military and Russia is getting pissed. Of course, there is about a year and a half before I even get considered for deployment.
Yes, Russia is a way over used and quite often incorrectly used enemy of the US. Most of the people in my class think the Russians were enemies during WWII. And I'm not saying this is definitely going to blow up and become full out war, but it does look like a possibility. Maybe the Cold War is returning to claim a victor.
