The Failure Of Appeasing Putin

Mitt Romney was attacked for calling out Soviet Russia as an aggressor state. Now Russia has broken yet another cease-fire in Syria, its forces rampaging and evoking bad memory of the invasions of Afghanistan et al, and Secretary Of State John Kerry acts surprised, this amid Soviet aggression in European Georgia, the Ukraine, and now Soviet intelligence sabotage of US computers in a direct assault on the US election.
"When asked if the (computer hacking) amounted to a Russian intelligence operation on Wednesday, CIA Director John Brennan confessed (that it is). But even this concession was something the White House hoped to avoid, lest they threaten the project of rapprochement with Russia."

Making it worse is the refusal to think seriously about foreign policy.
