Russia needs to take a big chill pill. America is still a democratic republic, and unless Russia gives the American people a real good reason to think it has become a world aggressor once more, the American people will regard Russia with a yawn. China is much more a concern now. We don't like nuclear wars, they're messy and inconvenient.

Sure. Do whatever you want. Just remember - where one man's freedom starts there the other's ends. On average Russians are not egomaniacs, so they do not care if someone regards them "with a yawn". As long as this "someone" not trying to be a peg in every hole.
Some time before WW I, Tsar Nicolas II wrote to his grandmother "what I want is that everybody would leave Russia alone". We have enough housework to do, what we want is little interruption from advisors with hidden agendas.
