It would be 50/50 depending on where it was.

Assuming the war did not go nuclear, the United States has the most technically advanced military giving them a big advantage in conventional war, however, it really depends on who attacks who first. Regardless of which, the war would be enormous. It would easily dwarf WWII and the lives of Americans and Russians would greatly be changed. It would not be hard to assume that a large majority of the invaded population would be killed. And in the case of the United States, a loss of democracy and an installment of a police state that would be hard to get ride of for years to come. Due to the fact that liberty would be dropped to help the war effort such as the draft, limitless president terms etc. think of the Patriot act but 10 times more so. It would be a reasonable prediction that the US would win the war (don't forget US allies such as NATO), but it would be an extremely heavy pyrrhic victory. So much so that the country wouldn't really even be the US anymore but something new. To put it blunt there would be no winner.

Advantages/Russia

Russias biological Weapon systems out number U.S. and Russias tanks,helicopters,vehicals outnumber U.S's

Advantages/U.S.

U.S's infantry are highly trained,so as helicopter pilots,tank drivers,vehicals and any plane fighters are convoy pilots.

U.S. technology is greater then Russias.

U.S. has more task force specilized armed fources then Russia.

U.S. has more allies like,Canadian armed fources,UK armed fources,Europe specilized task fource.

Although it depends where the war happends.if Russia attacked unknowingly U.S. would have a devastanting critical hit.(CoD MW2)even if so U.S. armed forces and the natinol guard would be alerted before Russia would even get to fire one round on U.S. soil. task forces would be alerted,allies would be called in and Russia will probly be flanked from all directions.

if U.S. attacked unknowingly they wouldent do it in fource(probly like Russia would)they would send in U.S. navy seals to one side and send in task forces to wipe all natinol defence then come in like WW but risk surrounding countrys.

if they did use nukes the whole world would turn on either country who started the war.

No. This is like the Cold War. Russia fears us too much, we could win. We arguably have the strongest military in the world.

It is likely that US might win the war. Russia could defeat both India and China together, but they would get a lot of their soldiers lost in the battle. US has much better weapons and better, trained soldiers than Russia, making it more powerful.

The odds are that the US would win.

USA will win because of advanced technology and mor nuclear weapons along with better money and more experience

The U.S. helped the Allied side (Russia, Great Britain, France, and Serbia) win the war. They won the war but not by them-selves.

In the event of a nuclear war there are no winers - the concept is of mutually assured destruction.

No one. The US, Russia, and China each have sufficient nuclear weapons to lay waste to the entire globe.

The Americans have more advanced technology, we have more intelligence and more firepower than the Russians.

The US would never fight a conventional war with China or Russia, but might support a country that did (as with Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989). Russia has a much larger conventional army, and China an even larger one. Any armed conflict would likely lead to a nuclear exchange, either limited or total. Russia has parity with the US in nuclear weapons, while China is still a distant 3rd.

US hands down Deffinatly the U.S The US would beat Russias coldwar era tech.

If you mean only the USA and Russia (not including us allies) the USA because it has a technological upper hand by far plus Russia hasn't got a great navy either. USA is #1 ============================== What kind of war doesn't have nukes. Russia would win with nukes. ============================== If nukes are ever used between the 2 - NOBODY wins. The devastation to not only the two countries but the collateral damage to the rest of the world would likely cause a complete collapse of civilization. Who would win in a no-nukes war would depend a lot on where the war was fought. Each country would have a distinct advantage fighting on their own home turf. Napoleon and Hitler both found out how foolish it was to try to fight Russia in Russian territory.

Germany declared war on the US on 11 December 1941. In the hopes that Japan would declare war on Russia.

Yes. Otherwise there would be no US.

'Russia' was too busy to involve US into a World War I as there was a revolution in Russia at that time.

It depends on what you mean by the State of Georgia, but let us be clear, Russia invaded the Republic of Georgia, a country in Europe and Asia, not the US State of Georgia. If Russia had invaded the US, the US certainly would have declared war on Russia.As for why the US did not declare war on Russia, this is probably to avoid sparking World War III, as well as the US's lack of a clear approach to dealing with international conflicts and changing developments under the Obama administration.

The US gave the Allies a fresh army. Right after the US joined Russia dropped out. This gave the Allies a dominant chance to win. Without the US, Russia could have stayed and finished off the Allies without the US.

Please explain in which war do you imagine the US attacked Russia.
