The East is not interested in a peeing contest. The East is above this type of US nonsense.

Your analysis of the Korean War is faulty. It was not a US defeat or a Chinese victory. It ended in stalemate. Naturally, the US was not motivated to make a greater sacrifice in lives and resources to seize all of the Korean Peninsula. The southern part was sufficient. It was massive US artillery and airpower that prevented a Chinese conquest of the south. Then, there was an change in USSR policy. Realizing their extreme vulnerability to US airpower and nuclear superiority, and needing to focus on the recovery from their severe WW II economic damage, Malenkov's group sought a reduction of confrontation. As far as the delay of the "Second Front" in WW II  is concerned, hindsight shows that the German army was so far superior in expertise to the US and Commonwealth forces, that a pre-1944 invasion of Western Europe would've been a disaster (except on the Italian peninsula where the front would be narrow). This is not to disparage the magnificent showing of the Red Army (and I don't think US aid - mainly food and trucks - was
really decisive). The Red Army would've held-out anyway because of Hitler's interference in strategy. Finally, even if the USSR had collapsed, the US atomic bomb would've led to a German surrender in August 1945.
What's on your mind...

You don't know what you're talking about. Yes, Putin will make no further annexations in Ukraine because he is sensible. He has his bases in Crimea secured (with which I find no fault). To provoke a wider conflict with NATO would severely damage the Russian economy. Certainly the Russians could take most of Ukraine in a matter of weeks; but, after that, a full NATO mobilization would face Russia with certain defeat. This is not cowardice, it is simply a realistic assessment!

America will soon take Crimea back from Russia.

The metal from all British Victoria Crosses are made from Russian cannons captured in the Crimea war
