Honestly, as much as you love another country you should never move there to join their army. You'll never be 100% accepted as one of them but you'll be the worst kind of traitor to your own people. What if the US and Russia went to war? Could you live with invading your own country?

You should join your own military force. You'll get to work with all nationalities of soldiers including Russians and no one will view you as a traitor.

Besides even if you became a citizen in another country I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be able to advance to any officer's position.

I dont have a country. I am Russian and unlike Call of Duty I dont think Russia and US would go to war. If they did then all you would see is a bunch of nukes going in the air.

If you were born in the united states, mate, then the United States is your country.

Also I don't think nukes would go flying if there was real war. Pretty sure countries would want to avoid Mutually Assured Destruction

If Russia and the US go to war in the first place, it'll be nukes all over the place.

Russia is not aggressive so why would they go to war at all?

In such civilized times, I don't think any superpower would go to war with another.

Doubtful that nuclear warfare would be the first line of combat given the extensive anti-missile defense both countries have... They would just kill off the entire population of the ocean and would starve each other to death in an economic depravity.

If any combat were to happen between Russia and the U.S., it would be massive naval conflict, then shoreline bombardment, then shore invasion, insertion, dealing with Partisan units and other civilian patriots, and then the effective blitzkrieg style tactics to overcome the main stature of government and demand that opposing troops surrender immediately.

That is of course one of many ways it could happen, but nukes are more for deterrence than anything...

As we've during the last 70 years, nukes won't be launched.

I guess I'll retract what I wrote in the last post, and bow in the dust. Laughing

I dont even think they would go to war. Nothing for the two to fight over. Kinda like if Canada and Mexico went to war I think. No point.

I agree.
Russia and USA got nothing in between them. Just fanatics that think that Russia is evil and all that bullshit.
It's just a cliché.

Russia vs US is something from the sixties cold war era.

Neither country wants to use any nuclear weapons, for fear of them being used against them. And even if you have anti-missile defences, are you 100% sure they'll stop what your enemy sends your way? Todays nuclear weapons are powerful enough to kill millions with just one projectile... One projectile that gets through could have desastrous effects.

Not to mention that noone wants to be the first to throw one. Then you get blamed for millions of deaths when the war is over
