Assessing Russia's Decline: Trends and Implications for the United States and the U.S. Air Force
What challenges does today's Russia pose for the United States and the U.S. Air Force?

In a number of scenarios, the U.S. Air Force is certain to be called upon for transportation and perhaps for various military missions in a very demanding environment.
