I can't believe Russia would do this.
I can. Once a commie always a Commie. Seriesly though Putin obviously thinks he can play the US off against it's various enemies, sooner or later he'll have to pay the piper tho. Think China in that respect.
Either that or they just aren't thinking at all. Could be either.

This has nothing to do with communism or capitalism and everything to do with (perceived) national interest. Russia thinks that it will be more powerful in a world where the United States is weaker. Plenty of other countries believe the same thing. That's nationalism, not ideology, and while I don't necessarily agree with it, the solution isn't namecalling.
