Usa Vs Russia
The United States and Russia have been rivals for decades, but their enmity has only escalated in recent years. It has led to a re-emergence of Russia as America’s chief military rival, and has also raised the prospect of a long war between the two.
If a conflict broke out, it would be hard to predict what the outcome might be. Moreover, it would take the United States and Russia many years to resolve the issue.
In addition, the costs of a conflict are likely to be high for both countries. For Russia, a prolonged conflict could drain its leadership’s time and resources and make it more difficult to pursue other key foreign policy priorities.
One way for the United States to reclaim its role as the global hegemon is to respond to this nascent coalition in a way that is both unappetizing and effective. Washington can do this by promoting the trajectories that best serve U.S. interests, and by taking a range of trade-offs to achieve those objectives.
