Putin the Cold War to Bed-It's worth a second look that we're looking at a two-thirds reduction in nukes and a proposed NATO-Russia anti-terrorism network in the same news cycle. Is Russia an ally now? Russia may be more an ally than the French at this point, but France has danced to its own drummer for decades. Russia definitely isn't a presently-hostile power and their oil and other natural resources are a good counterweight to the gulf oil dictatorships. This is a different world that we grew up with. Will a nuke-reduction treaty get through the Senate? The WaTi piece on the nuke treaty implies that Democrats would shoot down the treaty, but it more likely to be Republicans who'd be opposed to arms reduction.
