One major strategic advantage that the US has maintained over the Soviet/Russians is our bomber force. In times of crisis we can put planes in the air & loiter just outside their airspace. It’s the USAF equivalent of parking an aircraft carrier off your doorstep. Very intimidating.

Ballistic missiles, OTOH, are like submarines. They sit hidden and it’s difficult for the otherside to determine their actual alert status.

But we can't for a moment forget who and what we have in the White House today. The SOB is on the same "new world order" page with KGB Putin, working toward a stronger Russia and China and a substantially weaker US.
