Should The West Push A New Policy Of Detente With Russia? (August 4, 2016). To begin .... Jeffrey Taylor at the Atlantic put up a similar post post a few days later .... The Time Is Ripe for Détente, 2.0 (The Atlantic), and I have been receiving feedback from some WNU readers who are in the U.S. foreign policy establishment who have shifted their positions (in just one week) that maybe a different approach should be undertaken with Russia to lessen tensions.
I personally hope this is the case .... a reset between the West and Russia is badly needed, because the alternative .... another Cold War .... would not only be incredibly destabilising to all of Europe, but it would also open the door to the nightmare scenario of a possible major war.
In closing .... special kudos to Gabriel Elefteriu for getting the conversation going. His post .... Détente 2.0: Playing the long game with a rearmed Russia .... is a must read.
