‘Reset’ for Israel? No thank you
With a mix of naivete and arrogance, Obama ‘reset’ relations with Russia five years ago. The policy was a disaster from the beginning. Let not Obama ‘reset’ US-Israel relations.
As if deep cultural, linguistic and historical influences and complex personal traits could be wished away, President Barack Obama believed he could “reset” Russian-American relations upon entering office. Just start over. Obviously, this could never happen, and it didn’t happen. If anything, this administration’s failure to face the reality of an obdurate, proud, independent and psychically wounded, post-communist Russia, headed by a former KGB agent, has profoundly worsened both bilateral US-Russian relations and world peace in at least six major ways.
