While Obama Sleeps, Russia Grows

April 22, 2010

from Stratfor:

The one thing that could upset Russia’s well-laid and increasingly successful plans is the United States, should Washington extricate itself from the Islamic world sooner rather than later. A United States that has the vast bulk of its military efforts and resources concentrated in Iraq and Afghanistan, and one eye on Iran, has that much less to commit to addressing a resurgent Russia. But if the United States is not able to shift its focus away from these issues any time soon, when it does get some free bandwidth it will discover that the Russians are back — in Soviet proportions.
