The President of Russia, Dmitri Medvedev, writes today in the WaPO:
Long ago, Alexis de Tocqueville predicted a great future for our two nations. So far, each country has tried to prove the truth of those words to itself and the world by acting on its own. I firmly believe that at this turn of history, we should work together. The world expects Russia and the United States to take energetic steps to establish a climate of trust and goodwill in global politics, not to languish in inaction and disengagement. We cannot fail to meet those expectations.
This is good. Talk, talk is always better than war, war. But I'm sure the neo-cons will accuse him of just being another Hitler in disguise.
