Yeah but if you look at Russia's military history from 18th century onwards, only time they win is when they are invaded.
Russia invading usually ends pretty bad for them.
Afghanistan was even bigger disaster for the Russians than it was for Americans.
(to be fair, last time someone sucessfully invaded and took Afghanistan was Alexander the Great, so that's not that much of a black mark)

Actually, that's not quite true. The Germans retreated from Russian ground but there was a tank standstill somewhere in east Europe between the two until the ailed forces invaded Cicily. Hitler was dumb enough to withdraw the remaining tanks which gave the Russians the tactical advantage which they never lost from that point on.

Fair enough, and to be completely honest it was Zhukov and his Siberians who really stopped Germans as much as winter conditions.
Russians generally suffer from the same problem French do. Military leadership is politically appointed and generally pretty... bad. lets go with bad.
When under a great leader, like Zhukov, Russians make a mean army. Problem is that to most Russian commanders tactics boil down to Zerg rush, since they were appointed to high positions through their political connections, not capability.
Its not as bad now as it was with Stalin (who got rid of anyone who was even half competent, Zhukov was just lucky he was in Siberia, far from Stalin), but even now most of Russian high command are political compatriots of Putin.
I'm not saying that they are necessarily incompetent, but they ARE untried and without stellar reputations.

Very true my friend. Just lettin you know man I wasn't arguing against you or anything. And I'm positive you realize that but yea. Russia is best as it is. A giant defensive Iron Curtained turtle, In a war stand point. On a civilian stand point I would love to visit sometime. Be a good culture shocker for me I feel.
