#5 Oh, yeah, like Russia isn't into eliminating whatever other nation states it can get away with.

#6 Yeah, but some of those other nation states need eliminating. Chechnya comes to mind. Dagestan, Ingushetia, Ossetia...WTF? And do we really need Belarus? I sure don't.
Sorry if that sounds harsh. What I really mean is that, in the cases of Napoleon and Hitler, Russia and Britain were essentially allies whether they liked it or not. That's what it took to maintain their independence. Expect the Brits to overlook some of Russia's warts if the rest of Europe gets out of control again.
