During a debate in the recent presidential election campaign candidate Mitt Romney stated that Russia was the top geopolitical foe of the United States. President Obama ridiculed
this statement. All over the country Democrats joined him in laughing at candidate Romney. After all, central to the president’s Democratic Party foreign policy position was the concept of “rapprochement” with Russia through a “reset” of our relations. I wonder who is laughing now? Who was right back in 2012 and who was the fool?
When wrestling with the bear it is wise to not confuse his goals with your own.
