It looks like NATO has found a way to start war with everyone. They have said if any country outside of NATO has a cyber attack on a NATO nation it may be grounds for war. That is tough.

We as a nation do not need these problems right now. We need to find out who our new leader will be and start rebuilding this country. We do not need to be at war with any nation at the moment. I hope this is just a case of misinformation.

I don't think you will find any sane person in the world that would want this to happen. We should be working together to find a solution that will settle the middle east. Both countries help destroy the east and should be actively finding a way to rebuild it.

Obama defied political pressure from hawks in Congress and the military to provide lethal assistance to the Ukrainian government, fearing that doing so would increase the bloodshed and provide Russian President Vladimir Putin with the justification for deeper incursions into the country. Breedlove, during briefings to Congress, notably contradicted the Obama administration regarding the situation in Ukraine, leading to news stories about conflict between the general and Obama.

No one however seems to notice the glaring gap in Obama’s account of his foreign policy. This is that he has almost nothing to say about the US’s relations with China and Russia. This is actually bizarre given the importance of these two states. China is now the world’s biggest industrial power and may (in purchasing power parity terms) already have an economy bigger than that of the US.

They aren't really enemies or allies, just very mistrustful acquaintances. I don't think anything will come of this. They is always a unsaid tension between these too but nothing serious.

This is an age old conversation. Everyone is always wondering are they getting along or not. I am sure if we could find some emails from Russia they would not be pretty either. Good thing is nothing ever comes from this.

I don't think either country has the time to address this problem right now. We both have issues with our borders and economy. This is no time to go fighting each other and dragging in the Chinese. Let us all play nice people.

If the argument is our government will do the right thing I think we are all in trouble. It does not make sense to stir up tension with Russia but they do things that make no sense on a daily basis. We are already spread out all over the world we need to come home and defend home.

For more than 200 years, Russia and the United States have shared a multi-faceted diplomatic relationship, at one point even sharing a land border when Russia had a settlement at Fort Ross, California. Over this period, the two countries have competed for political and economic influence, and cooperated to meet mutual global challenges.

For U.S.-Russian cooperation in Syria to stimulate sustainable improvements in U.S.-Russia relations, it will require broader political support than it so far appears to have, especially in the United States.

Previously, students could take two years to find a job after graduation, but current rules give them just four months. Consequently, only a few thousand international grads are able to secure jobs each year, compared to tens of thousands in earlier years.

I don't think we will ever see eye to eye with Russian but I both countries have a mutual respect for each other. If you really think about it the two countries have never really had a conflict directly.

The US is stretching itself to thin and something bad will happen if we don't bring our troops home soon. He is leaving more troops in Afghanistan why? Maybe to keep an eye on the area?

We will have to revisit this after the election. I could see Hillary becoming president and everything going to crap. I think Putin has a special distaste for our maybe soon to be president.

There is still a powerful case for restraint in dealing with Russia, especially in regard to central Europe. There is some hope for the Minsk II process over Ukraine, with a semi-ceasefire holding.

I think this is actually one thing Obama did well while in office. Many said that he was soft and didn't directly respond to Putin early on but that kept the tension down. There seemed to at least be a very good working relationship with the two while he was in office.

Well people Obama is in Europe so I am not sure if he will be stopping over in Russia or not. He needs to get back to his own country before it falls apart.

Putin has managed to keep Russian running strong with little change over the years. I admire how the country seems to be the model of stability right now. They are having none of the problems that the other countries are having right now.

Me and my family were just speaking about this. Putin seems to have frozen Russia in time and it has helped. They still do things the old way and even though not politically correct it is keeping the country together I think.
