At the power level of the USA, Russia, and some others, which one is "more powerful" has little to do with "likelihood of causing a massive war".  Did you really need me to tell you that? 

The US  is involved much more with world affairs than Russia is too, bombing numerous countries and having military bases all over the world.

True, the U.S. does conduct more worldwide activity.  I suppose "being involved in world affairs" does inherently somewhat increase the odds of starting a massive war.  But what in particular do you see as being especially risky of that specific consequence?  Even if the U.S. is in "little wars", what about them do you see as more likely to cause a "big war" as compared to Russia annexing part of the Ukraine, assassinating dissidents in other countries, trying to destabilize regional adversaries, and allegedly things like the NotPetya cyberattack that reportedly did 80% of its damage in the Ukraine but also had worldwide effects? 

Are you counting Syria when you talk about how much more "bombing other countries" the U.S. is doing than Russia?

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.
