Boasting is bad, it shows that a person is silly and inadequate. It also means overestimating somebody's own abilities. I disagree with all military actions of the XXI st century that have been leading Russia. I think many people count my country as an agressor-state. It is a pity that because of somebody's bad behaviour sally all the population's reputation. To my mind, absolutely all russian military operations of the modern history looks like boasting with muscles (and the muscles are numerous weapons). Our rulers often want to bite off more than they can chew. I think one day i may emigrate

I sympathize with you. yes, this has been the news over the world and as you said your military has muscles. If things get worst can you get out right away?

Russia is not the only one - most countries have been guilty of this kind of thing in their recent history. However where are all the old empires now? Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Greece, Turkey, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany ..... they have all acted that way but now don't count as much as they used to.

As my husband would say 'Failed nations'. Mind you, some modern 'super powers' should take note that the higher they fly, the harder they fall.

Hockey pucks. Hit where the goalie isn't.

Many of us feel the same in the United States. Not all Americans agree with decisions made by our government (invading Iraq, for example).

I think that could be a good idea. Your president certainly fits the cocky description.

Do not worry, I know how you feel, when our country does something wrong we feel like all the world hates us, this is not the case. By the way, I have migrated.

The United Nations was founded with the general idea that nations should act in concert to sort out problems when they arise, and members should not go off on military adventures of their own as and when it suits them. As far as I'm aware, Russia is still a member of the UN and should bear that in mind.

Yeah, we have that problem as well. The USA needs to just back up and stop trying to run the world...they aren't even running this country right.
