Having read the article that is in question the following can be stated:
Were you expecting a high level stratigic talks between the US and Russia? This should neither be surprising or really unexpected, as the US is
having to cut back on its expenses and ultimately is looking to its closest ally for assistence in that aspect.
But there are other considerations that must be looked at as well. The US is wanting to pull out of Afganistan, and the ME, and has had very little
in the way of practicle experience in those areas, save very recently. Why not look and talk to the one country that has had experience in both areas
and get their take on how to calm fears, and withdraw troops, along with getting some good advice in how they did it, the mistakes and successes that
they had? It makes alot of sense if you think about it. Ultimately both countries have alot of concerns and stratigic interest around the world, and
some of these are one and the same, does the US and the UK really need to have troops and ships stationed in the same area, where resouces could be
best used elsewhere? Ultimately this may be a benefit to both, as they can further figure out how and the logistics on what to do and how to do such.
This should not be seen as the gloom and doom as it is protrayed, nor does it seem like it. This is not the first time the US has had high level
stragitic meetings with a close ally, nor will it be the last. The one question that I do have is the US going to insult them again, or ignore the
advice that they give this time around?
