Navigating Russia: Pivots & Resets, Walls & Deals
Russia has proved a confounding counterpart to American political leaders over the past decade. To the veritable Rubik’s Cube that is today’s complex international security environment, American leaders too often react with simplism. Some seem unable or unwilling to articulate a contemporary doctrine to guide U.S. foreign policy vis-à-vis Russia, the resurgence of ethno-nationalism, and other contemporary challenges. Faith in the directional march of capital “H” History or the curative effect of Globalism and like nostrums is a poor substitute for a well explicated statement of American geopolitical interests.
