Response to Wounded Bear (Reply #2)

4. Yes

Oil is the carrot they've dangled in front of us, but Putin is after regaining what was lost to perestroika and the dissolution of the USSR. I mean, he wants to go waaaay back. We cannot forget that he can sell that oil to other countries to keep that monstrous military apparatus afloat.

I guess what I'm getting at is that the U.S. has always been responsible for holding Russia in check. But now what? How the hell do we approach that responsibility diplomatically in the face of what he has done during this election?
