COMMENT POSTED TO AN EDITORIAL IN THE GUARDIAN
"...neither a partner nor an enemy'
That's just a bit weird, don't you think?
Neither fish nor fowl, it just sort floats in limbo?
What is your point?
Russia is a country like any other.
It has the most open government it has ever had.
It keeps its commitments.
It has a lot to offer in trade and business deals.
It threatens absolutely no one.
In fact, all of Russia's reactions to American provocations have been very temperate.
Can you even imagine the American reaction to a coup created in Mexico?
Tanks would roll into Mexico City immediately.
