Russian Reset a Success, Not a Disaster
Mark Adomanis, Forbes
Some people, including a number of friends whose views I greatly respect, dislike the reset because they think that it has been too accommodating towards the Russian regime. These people tend to view Russia as dangerous, aggressive, and revanchist, and they think it was a mistake to take a “softer” line towards Moscow. But while I know many people who dislike the reset, they’re usually pretty understated about their opposition because they can see that, in the grand scheme of things, the reset is actually a pretty modest departure from previous US policies in the region and that America remains very firmly engaged with new NATO allies like Poland, Romania, and the Baltics.
