What you're saying is Russia could commit suicide. Yes, they could. But they won't - because the Russian elite wants to stay in power. Nuclear weapons are diplomatic tools, no sane leader will use them as offensive weapons against another nuclear state. Source: the Cold War.

The fact that you go straight for "muh nukes" as an argument shows the weakness of your argument and Russia itself

Someone needs to make the argument for Russia being more powerful than the UK. Something more than "muh nukes" would preferable.

>>53180128
The UK has an economy which is more than double the size of Russia's in nominal terms, it has a blue water navy with a global network of military bases (Russia has just one naval base overseas), we have membership of all the important international groups (G7, G20, EU, NATO, UNSC P5, Commonwealth, etc), we have loads more bilateral relationships with regionally important countries worldwide and our cultural exports knock them out of the park.

>it seems to me that their time has already passed.
Two points:

1. Anything we do today will look bad due to the remarkable success of the British Empire. It's smarter to judge us in relation to other countries *today* rather than centuries ago.

2. Powers rise and fall, but they can also get stronger again after a fall. UK history proves this point.

I haven't seen the Brits do anything meaningful in the last 30 years.

The Russians on the other hand since 1990 now own Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, parts of Georgia and hold Eastern Europe by its collective balls when it comes to commodities.

Maybe not a great argument, but it's essentially power is meaningless without the political will to use it properly.

For example, Obama is arguably weaker than Putin even though Russia is far weaker. Why? Because Putin controls all of Russia and has public support. Obama has control of an overextended military that he has cut into oblivion, and lacks public and political support.
>>
Regarding the "is Russia more powerful than Britain?" question, the only valid argument in favour of Russia I can think of is that size of conventional military forces.

Britain wins easily in the economic, diplomatic and cultural influence departments. But our conventional military forces are much smaller in quantity, which is a clear negative for the UK despite being superior in quality and training in most areas.

This is an area where Britain needs to improve. In fact the air force and navy are now getting larger, but the increase in size will be slow. However, the UK's advantage over Russia in conventional military forces is that its smaller force is more flexible and can reach much more of the world. For example the Royal Navy is capable of joining allies in the South China Sea, or Indian Ocean, to affect the outcome of a conflict (or act as a deterrent), whereas Russia's power projection is limited to its (admittedly vast) border areas and Syria - the location of their only naval base

>>53181189
>I haven't seen the Brits do anything meaningful in the last 30 years.
Serious question, what would you have preferred us to do? What the UK has done in the last 30 years is greatly improved its economic fundamentals and real GDP relative to our advanced competitors. Our side won the Cold War, as a result capitalism is prevalent in the world, and that has allowed us improve our economic fortunes. As you know, the economy is the firmest base on which to build other types of power.

Now consider the Russians, who lost the Cold War putting them in a very weak position. Their weakness has forced them to spend all their political capital in reactionary military attacks on their neighbours due to feeling threatened.

Why has the UK not done something similar and attacked Ireland or Belgium? Because the current environment is good for us, it allows us to grow stronger - we are not threatened.

Speaking about military it's simply out of question, Russia has submarines with nuclear warheads in every sea and a direct war against Russia would simply mean destruction of civilization.

The UK is surely richer and more relevant in many other aspects, but they simply cannot win a war against Russia.

I see, the nuclear weapons again. I responded to this point earlier >>53179832

>but they simply cannot win a war against Russia.
It depends what kind of war. Clearly the UK is not capable of invading Russia (but why would we want to?), and Russia is not capable of invading the UK. However in a war limited to conventional weapons, we stand a good chance of winning the naval war against the Russian Northern Fleet. For Britain this is by far the most important area of potential conflict with Russia.

You are right that neither the UK nor Russia could win a nuclear war with each other. But that isn't the point of this thread, is it? It's about strongest global powers. Ignore the economic/cultural/diplomatic aspects if you want.

If you only consider the military domain, Russia has a larger military which is limited to regional warfare. The UK has a much SMALLER military but it can act globally and therefore affect Britain's influence in many parts of the world. Undoubtedly the British military is too small, too weak and needs to be expanded. But considering all the different elements I think it is more effective on a global scale. In a sense we are very lucky to have strategic territories and bases all over, because without them we would be *much* weaker

I would say China is more powerful than us. Like all powerful countries, China doesn't have to "do" anything to be powerful. It can just sit there passively with its huge market and economy, and affect the world just by having economic fluctuations. It has the potential to build a blue water navy like us, get more overseas bases etc. However I would put us in 3rd place

Why would we want to leave the EU? We're improving and the major continental powers are stagnating. It's stupid to leave the EU now.

It's a completely different beast. In China there are huge swathes of territory that are dying to secede from the country. Shit, Tibet and Hong Kong would love nothing more than to break free of China. Not to mention the vast number of people that fucking hate the Chinese government. It wouldn't be a complete steamroll but the USA definitely has a ton of factors working in it's favor. China, unlike the US, is barely held together by it's government and is surrounded by countries that would love for it to get knocked down a peg.

Laugh all you want, when your fellow countrymen come here as tourists they end up broke not realizing how stronk the £ really is. Then when I buy a Spanish,Italian, Aussie lass a drink she's so overcome with gratitude she sucks my cock.

They certainly have more impact on world events than us purely based on the fact their foreign policy isn't 99% aligned with the US like ours is

Look, I have no strong ties to most countries, and when I analyze a country, I won't be weighed down by bias.
Japan, for all reasons stated, especially science and diplomacy, are a global superpower. They do not break the worlds economy every time their one fluctuates. Their military isn't the biggest. But they drag the world forward with new inventions, and has the second most important say in the UN. Their society is a productive one, and it seems as if they are going to be a global power for a long time
Again, no bias, just saying what I see

why do the french get so angry when something doesnt involve them lads? so salty

>When Japan joined the U.N., its financial contribution was only 1.97 percent. It is now 19.47 percent, the second biggest following the U.S.’ 22 percent and larger than the contributions by the four other Security Council permanent members — Britain, France, Russia and China — combined.

The further north from Paris you go the more inbred they are, north of Calais they probably all have malformed livers.

True but otherwise for instance I've never met a Breton who could drink as much as their reputation says
But hey I'm a beer fag so it's easier to drink liters of it without feeling bad. Dat pee tho

>>53185473
Yes Japan PAYS loads of money into the UN. That doesn't buy it influence, you fool. What is the UN Security Council? There are 5 permanent members with vetoes. Do you think Japan is part of that?

You can't really call it a party unless you get stone drunk and can't remember most of what happened the night before.

>>53185513
Actually everyone out side the north are basically Italians that call themselves 'french'

The only wine I see in partie is cheap one the kind that's over in 10mn
I'd like to see you try on something harder than a cheap pint

Whisky/gin= wants to get drunk
Vodka/Tequila= divorced/vacation/ogres/Slavs

Sounds about right

Well I do but I live surrounded by wineyards in a village so when it's the local fair every year good wine flows for almost free
It's the only time tho
There's often wine in the parties I attend but it's like 10% of all there's to drink
>>
>>53186523
Kek. I was really hoping to keep this conversation going long enough so a northern frenchie would see what you said but none are turning up. I've had better luck turning Argentinians and yanks on eachother today. Thread is almost 404:(
