But then there is the China question, too
Here are some facts on Russia that caught my attention at the Changi Airport before I boarded a flight to San Francisco.
Even after the Cold War became history with the splintering of the Soviet Union, the two countries were hardly friends.
The end of the Cold War merely meant the emergence of the U. S. as the sole superpower. There may be no point now on blaming it on then Soviet leader Gorbachev’s glasnost and perestroika.
Now, with the friendly equation between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, that could change post-Jan. 20.
The Cold War rivals becoming friends will be interesting to watch!
But with China enjoying some proximity to Russia, the dynamic will get even more fun.
As they say, there can be no permanent enemies or friends in politics and business.
