Paul Craig Roberts: “…I don’t think that Putin’s policy of restraint and non-confrontation (towards the United States) has been successful. Putin’s good intentions are not reciprocated by Washington. I think Putin’s responsible behavior encourages more aggressive accusations and more aggressive military maneuvers. At some point, the West is going to go too far, and there’s going to be no alternative to Russia than to take a more major kind of response. And that’s where the danger is.”
