The Opportunity in Russia’s Economic Weakness

Doug Bandow, a former Reagan hand, is one of those unique right-wing guys who pushes the realist soft policy approach with Russia (more Kissinger than McCain, that is). Today he argues that “the incoming U.S. administration should use the present economic uncertainty as an opportunity to refashion relations with Russia.” This guy used to publish favorable columns for payola from Jack Abramoff, so perhaps this should also be taken with a grain of salt.
