Russia Without Opposition

The US was supposed to be the country that couldn't get along without enemies. But every time missile defense is offered to the Russians the US shows that it can get along without a hostile Russia just fine. Russia, on the other hand, seems to have real psychological problems accepting the fact that we don't think that they're some mad ravening beast but rather a potential partner that we can work with.

Until the underlying source of the gulf between us (the Great Schism of 1054) is resolved, this is likely to be a continuing theme.
