Assessing morally obtuse, naïve multiculturalism is a quality lacking in the ForeignAffairs.com article by Niko Tsafos titled, “A U.S. Gas War with Russia?” The premise grossly understates Russia’s reaction to the United States’ (US) liquid natural gas (LNG) exports to Europe, and gives the impression Russia will not be overly bothered by this occurring. It has become dangerously fashionable to blame problems on outside factors, instead of CONSIDERING regime type, historical precedence, and basic rules of deterrence.
