I thought you might be interested in my latest article, in which I argue that a more humble foreign policy might have prevented this conflict:  Feel free to share. 🙂

Thank you for sending me your article.  The lack of self-awareness among American elite is staggering.  For 15 years, Putin has been complaining about NATO, and for 15 years we have been ignoring everything he says thanks to our imperious attitude that outsiders rightfully call “American arrogance.”  Now, of course, everyone pretends to shocked and outraged.  But, as you write, it’s largely our fault.
