The only (real) thing we have to fear about Russia is the fact they are creating a strong movement against the US dollar as a reserve currency status. If successful, Russia could isolate the US from global trade and countries would start rejecting the dollar en mass. Their ability to do this has increased since they have gotten China on their side (China is now dumping US T-bonds at an accelerated pace).
As for a military threat? Only if you allow your country to be disarmed can another country be considered an actual military threat.
Do prepare. Their are domestic enemies on your land who want you dead.
