4.0 out of 5 stars The Kissinger, Remnick, Pickering segment on Russia August 6, 2008
Putin has just handpicked his successor Medvedev. Kissinger, Remnick and Pickering consider whether or not this is a ploy to keep Putin in power. They point out that he has brought Russia back economically, thanks in good part to the Energy boon. And that he is the kind of authoritarian leader the Russian people seem to want. Remnick laments the anti- democratic moves Putin has made, his closing down of opposition media, his suppression of dissent. This has come with an opening up of economic possibilities. Remnick however also accuses the Bush Administration of having given Putin ammunition for doing this, and thus being in some way responsible. Remnick says that the U.S. record in Iraq, and its civil liberties problems at home mean that Putin was able to mock any U.S. human rights talk. Kissinger strongly disagrees, points out that the Bush Administration has attempted to engage Putin seriously. He ridicules the idea that the Russians were influenced to do what they did at home because of U.S. actions in Iraq. Pickering maintains a diplomatic line pointing out the great importance of treating Russia with respect, as a great power. Kissinger wants to differentiate between a U.S. long - term policy of moral politics , based on democratic values and one of practical real- time necessity in which self- defeating interference in foreign regimes is avoided.
All agree on the importance of dialoguing seriously with Russia.
The discussion did not go very deeply into the negative role Russia has played, and continues to play in a number of vital foreign - policy issues. One is their supplying nuclear equipment to Iran, and shielding Iran from stricter U.N. sanctions. Another is their supplying Syria once again with weapons. No one talked about the reviving of the old Russian Cold- War antagonism to the U.S. This was a grave limitation of the discussion.
