Neocons in lock step with the Democrats are doing their best to scuttle any "good" relations with Russia.
Decades ago, I spent considerable time in the Russian Far East - Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Anadyr, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Magadan, Khabarovsk, & Vladivostok.
I described the experience to friends this way: They're 24 hrs ahead but 50 years behind.
Industrious people who could find a "work around" in most any adverse situation.
That said, most of the military hardware (aircraft, ships, subs, misc. equipment) I saw were little more than rusting hulks.
Never understood how they ever posed a threat. Someone once described Russia as a "third-world country with nukes".
From my observations, it was an accurate statement.
This type of "news reporting" serves the MIC well.
Long beforeTrumpster, I opined and supported better relations with Russia...still do.

Most of the military stocks are already out of reach for the average investor. Hell, most stocks in general. It's part of the rich people only economic recovery. When McDonald's is over $125 a share, forget about it. Coca-Cola is still a good value if you don't mind holding on to it for a few years.
