How do we balance military and civilian priorities for dealing with Vladimir Putin and Russia?


The U. S. military wants to be fully ready to deal with and aggressive Russian international policy, while our responsible inclination is to find workable diplomatic solutions short of war or rewarding Russian aggression. The US and its European allies have already imposed some heavy economic sanctions on Rutin and his celebrating cronies, but the Russian military has the same readiness concerns as does the US military. How do we edge toward the brink we can both see, without plunging into a war of titans, one in which only China would be a likely winner?
