But the Trib omitted that the 1,000 square miles recaptured represents just 2% of the near … Continue reading "Chicago Tribune Should Be Careful What It Wishes For: Protracted Proxy War With a Nuclear Ending"

The Stories That Hardliners Tell

Samuel Charap and Mike Mazarr have responded to Vindman’s fantasy history about U.S. Russia policy: US policy toward post-Soviet Russia has never come close to the extreme accommodationism that Vindman describes. Washington did try to forge a partnership with Moscow, but those efforts were carefully circumscribed to avoid even the impression of a great-power condominium. … Continue reading "The Stories That Hardliners Tell"
