Remember: The Russians are Coming! – The Russians are Coming!
What perpetrated the threat then and what dangers do we face now?
Greg Lawson, is a Contributing Analyst with Wikistrat affiliation. Wikistrat is a global on-line network of over 5,000 Subject Matter Experts to help decision makers identify solutions to complex strategic challenges.
Mr. Lawson will share his knowledge and expertise with us. He will walk us through the history of US-Russia relations from immediately after the fall of the Soviet Union through the rise of Vladimir Putin and the 2016 election of President Donald Trump. He will show how mistakes on both sides have led to a tragic confrontation where the threat of an existentially dangerous nuclear exchange hangs perilously in the background while Russia is also pushed into the arms of America’s #1 21st Century geopolitical competitor- China.
